EPA clears way for more pollution.

If you want the Trump administration to favor coal plants, then that's what you are getting. Just don't call it a competitive market when dirty energy is allowed to pollute for free in order to compete with clean energy.

Who pays for the 52,000 deaths a year in the United States caused by small particulates and other air pollution released by coal-fired power plants?
