EPA coal mine deregulation will cause 1400 deaths a yearThe Trump administration’s plan for regulating coal plants acknowledges that its reduced standards on emissions could lead to as many as 1,400 additional premature deaths each year, The New York Times reports.

The Affordable Clean Energy Rule, proposed Tuesday, would replace the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan, which was an aggressive attempt to reduce carbon emissions and shutter coal power plants and was predicted to avoid 1,500 to 3,600 premature deaths annually by 2030.
