“Utah’s state legislature, however, opposed the unilateral land grab across party lines, with many speculating that Obama’s move is the latest in an attempt to limit efforts from incoming President Donald Trump to expand domestic energy production.”

While Obama created a marine preserve off the coast of Hawaii in the summer of 2016, reports show that it deprived the local fishing industry of $10 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.

A former top Obama administration energy official characterized the Clean Power Plan last week as “all pain, no gain,” saying it will do almost nothing to reduce global emissions while fueling double-digit hikes in electricity costs.

Charles McConnell, who served two years as assistant energy secretary under President Obama, told a House subcommittee that the total reduction in U.S. emissions by 2025 foreseen under the CPP will be offset by just three weeks of emissions in China.
