Executive action to kill Clean Power Plan coming this week: EPA chief
President Trump is expected to sign an executive order Tuesday to roll back the Clean Power Plan rule, keeping a campaign vow to undo the Obama administration's aggressive attempts to reduce carbon emissions.
"Tomorrow the President will sign an executive order to strengthen the nation's energy security by reducing unnecessary regulatory obstacles that restrict the responsible use of domestic energy resources, this order will help keep energy and electricity affordable reliable and clean in order to boost economic growth and job creation", Sean Spicer, White House Press Secretary, said in Monday's press briefing.

The clean power plan, which aims to cut emissions of Carbon dioxide and other emissions and was implemented in 2015, has been on hold since a year ago while a federal appeals court considered a challenge by Republican-led states and more than 100 companies.
But it's been on hold since a year ago. "The CPP is not tethered to the Paris accords". Following a meeting with auto executives in Detroit, Trump directed Pruitt's EPA to review fuel efficiency standards.
The executive order, however, is just the first step in what will be a complex process.
"We've penalized ourselves through lost jobs while China and India didn't take steps to address the issue internationally".
The EPA administrator said that he will focus on "getting things right here domestically and making sure we operate within the framework of the Clean Air Act". Scientists say we must not surpass that range if we want to avoid the worst effects of climate change.
