    WINNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    The Environmental Protection Agency is expected to soon formally repeal the Clean Power Plan (CPP) in what would be one of the biggest blows yet to former President Barack Obama’s legacy on climate change.

    A draft proposal of the EPA’s conclusions, leaked to news outlets over the past 24 hours, argues that the plan — which would limit carbon emissions from power plants and, in the process, drastically reduce the amount of coal-generated electricity in the U.S. — goes beyond the bounds of federal law and unnecessarily hikes energy prices for consumers.

    . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    “The EPA is proposing to repeal the CPP in its entirety,” the agency says in its draft conclusion.

    So repealing the so-called Clean Power Plan wouldn't make the slightest difference in the cleanliness of Pittsburgh's air.

    That's all we needed to know.

    BTW. How do you know that isn't fog in the picture?

    Forget about destroying the legacy of President Obama. President Blurtamus is creating his own legacy.

    Yep, lets go ahead and get rid of all the regulations for clean water and air.

    Gotta thin out the herd somehow, might as well do it making the rich richer and killing the environment.

    Obamacare is the only thing left of the messiah's "legacy," and that's a disgrace. Obama will be remembered forever as the president who destroyed out healthcare.
