[Editorial] A surrender to dirty energy

On Tuesday, Aug 21, US President Donald Trump announced a new plan governing carbon emissions from energy production in the USA, entitled the Affordable Clean Energy plan (ACE). The ACE plan would supersede an earlier plan, the Clean Power Plan (CPP), the implementation of which was delayed by lawsuits. While the CPP would have required states to reduce carbon emissions and encourage a move away from coal power generation, the ACE plan would return regulation of carbon emissions from energy production to the states.
