Ahh. The smell of burning coal

An EPA news release that says so much:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will hold a public hearing on the proposed repeal of the Clean Power Plan in Charleston, WV on November 28-29, 2017. All persons wanting to speak are encouraged to register in advance.

“The EPA is headed to the heart of coal country to hear from those most impacted by the CPP and get their comments on the proposed Repeal Rule. The agency looks forward to hearing from all interested stakeholders,” said EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt.
Somehow, I don't think Pruitt looks forward much to hearing from, say, the Sierra Club, except perhaps as a time to shoot them the bird. Thanks, again, to former Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel for speaking so highly of Pruitt and to current Attorney General Leslie Rutledge for her work to keep smokestacks belching greenhouse gases and particulates that obscure the view of increasingly polluted waterways.

EPA? CPA is more like it. Coal or corporations, you choose.
