Acting EPA chief Andrew Wheeler, a former coal lobbyist, just signed his first major regulatory amendment — making it easier for corporations to discard coal ash however they see fit.

Pruitt resigned as EPA administrator following a string of ethics scandals. The amendment backpedals on regulations put... [Read More]

Midwestern states like Illinois, Ohio, and Missouri are home to many coal-fired plants. A growing number of these plants are shutting down, partly due to the declining costs of renewables. According to one recent Moody's Analytics report, the price of wind power has fallen so rapidly that it could soon replace coal-fired plants in the Midwest.

The announcement follows... [Read More]
