Coal losing a stronghold and Trump can't stop it 30.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Natural gas already won the battle with coal on America’s Atlantic coast. Now it’s about to move west and take Ohio — and President Donald Trump’s new rollback of environmental regulations won’t stop the rout. At least six gas-fired plants are planned in the Ohio River Valley over the next four years. That’s enough to supply more than 4 million homes, and topple coal as the state’s main source of electricity. Because gas is cleaner, its displacement of coal was cheered by the Obama administratio...

Withdrawal of Clean Power Plan a relief to Northwest Colorado power plants 30.3.2017 Steamboat Pilot
Energy took center stage in Washington this week when Donald Trump signed an executive order that seeks to roll back coal, oil, gas and emissions regulations enacted under the Obama administration. With an emphasis on promoting American energy independence, the new policy orders a halt to the Clean Power Plan and lifts a moratorium on new federal coal leases. The move may not have an immediate or direct impact on Northwest Colorado’s energy industry, but could smooth the way for continued and future development of coal and oil and gas resources. “It’s certainly a signal that the war on coal is over and so is the punitive regulation that was directed specifically against coal,” said U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke on a media call Wednesday. “The president has made it clear that such regulatory policies that have been targeted at coal, those are over.” Signed by Trump Tuesday, the order sets government agencies to the task of rescinding regulations that “unduly burden the development of domestic ...

Easing coal rules unlikely to make U.S. energy independent 29.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
