 “(Ecofin Agency) - The war against coal is over… Tomorrow, in Washington, D.C, I’ll be signing a proposed rule to withdraw the so-called Clean Power Plan,” said last Monday Scott Pruitt, Administrator of the US environmental protection agency. The official, it should be recalled, when acting as the attorney of the Oklahoma State, took part to the contesting of the law by about thirty US States.

The Clean Power Plan includes measures that aim to make States give up on coal as source of energy in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

According to experts, repealing the law will slow this process, even if many States have already turned their backs on the fossil fuel, for economic reasons simply.

When he came into power, President Trump, a confirmed climate skeptic, announced that he would revoke the environmental strategy led by his predecessor which aimed to fight global warming.
