Cost of new EPA coal rules: Up to 1,400 more deaths a year
from The New York Times
The Trump administration has hailed its overhaul of federal pollution restrictions on coal-burning power plants as creating new jobs, eliminating burdensome government regulations and ending what President Donald Trump has long described as a "war on coal." The administration's own analysis, however, revealed on Aug. 21 that the new rules could also lead to as many as 1,400 premature deaths annually by 2030 from an increase in the extremely fine particulate matter that is linked to heart and lung disease.
