Trump promotes fossil fuels and assails pollution rules in energy plan

“Increasing domestic energy production has economic and geopolitical benefits, but strong and smart environmental protections are needed to clean up toxic waste and clean up the air we breathe, and those shouldn’t be partisan issues,” said Jason Bordoff, director of Columbia University’s Center on Global Energy Policy.

“The U.S. coal industry has been in structural decline for decades, recently driven by things like weak global demand and cheap natural gas,” said Bordoff, a former director for energy and climate at the National Security Council under Obama. “And eliminating environmental rules protecting air and water is not going to bring those jobs back.”

Trump: Government should 'get out of the way' of energy industry

David Sandalow, a former U.S. undersecretary of energy, told CNBC's "Power Lunch" on Thursday simultaneously saving the coal industry and boosting natural gas production could be difficult. "[Trump] said he's going to put coal workers back to work but hasn't told us how. And at the same time, he said he's going to increase hydraulic fracturing, which is the main reason that prices have gone down for natural gas and that's what put coal miners out of work," Sandalow said.
