The Trump admin’s clean energy rule is a major step back for America’s energy future. It should be repealed to ensure that polluters are regulated and pollution reduction is a priority to ensure community and environmental health. If it’s allowed to stand, the ACE rule will allow increased greenhouse emissions and their attendant ill effects.
The Trump admin’s ACE rule will lead to decreased carbon dioxide emissions, so it’s going to work as a form of environmental protection. Overregulation harms American prosperity, so repealing the previous Clean Power Plan and replacing it with the less burdensome ACE rule is good for U.S. economic growth.
