CLEAN POWER PLAN: Rule's demise looms, but how Trump will ax it remains unclear

By Amanda Reilly, E&E News.

The Obama administration's carbon rules for power plants are in dire straits after last night's election of Republican businessman Donald Trump as president.

The Clean Power Plan is "in critical condition," said Michael Gerrard, faculty director of Columbia University's Sabin Center for Climate Change Law.

But how, exactly, the Trump administration could go about eliminating the Clean Power Plan is still very much linked to litigation that is pending in federal court, legal experts said today.
