"EPA Carbon Rule: Trump To Toss Lifeline To Coal Plants. Will It Work?"

"The Trump administration's much-anticipated rule to replace the Obama-era Clean Power Plan may not be the long-term lifeline for coal that some hoped it would be, analysts say.

That concept was reinforced yesterday when an analysis showed the U.S. power sector methodically moving away from coal-fired generation, without any rule in place, to energy options such as solar and wind that do not produce carbon dioxide emissions.

The report from Ceres, Bank of America, power producers Entergy and Exelon, and the Natural Resources Defense Council breaks down the fuel mix for the 100 largest power producers in the nation."
