Later this week the EPA will announce new carbon emission standards for future power plants, the New Source Performance Standard regulation. All signs point to an unpredicted regulation that will effectively ban construction of coal-fired power plants.

The EPA has waged an all-out war on coal-fired electricity making good on President Obama’s promise to “bankrupt” the coal industry. This new carbon regulation, combined with the EPA’s retroactive 404c mining permit revocation, threaten America’s coal industry and the tens of millions that rely on the energy source for reliable, affordable energy.
