Trump's biggest move to end the ‘war on coal’ won't rescue the industry

President Donald Trump is scaling back sweeping Obama-era curbs on greenhouse gas emissions from power plants burning coal, his biggest step yet to fulfill his campaign promises to stop a “war" on the fossil fuel.

Yet the Environmental Protection Agency’s rewrite of the Clean Power Plan – which is being unveiled Wednesday – will do little to halt a nationwide shift away from that fossil fuel and toward cheaper electricity generated by the wind, the sun and natural gas.
