In talking points obtained by E&E News, the administration says the EPA's own analysis shows "the proposal could reduce 2030 Carbon dioxide emissions by 0.7% to 1.5% from projected levels" under a business as usual scenario compared to 2005.
The projection is contained in a 289-page technical document accompanying the agency's proposal to replace the Obama-era Clean Power Plan that was released Tuesday.
The Trump administration is emphasizing "coal at all costs", said Gina McCarthy, EPA administrator when the Obama plan was developed.

While that environmental action did not move forward, the liberal leaning-Center for American Progress says this new direction is irresponsible. "Acting EPA Administrator [Andrew] Wheeler addressed this in saying there are already rules and regulations in place, that when properly enforced, give them the tools they need to make sure ultimately our environment is being protected", said Avella. The change of regulatory direction by the Trump administration means coal is no longer targeted for elimination like it was under Obama and his EPA.

Scientists say that without extensive study, they can not directly link a single weather event to climate change, but that it is responsible for more intense and more frequent extreme events such as storms, droughts, floods and wildfires. That rule aimed to cut greenhouse gas emissions from power plants in an effort to stem the effects of climate change. After all, she says that the market largely drove coal's decline, not environmental laws.
