SC attorney general urges Trump to stop climate rules proposed by Obama


“Environmentalists disputed Wilson’s prediction of a 30 percent rise in energy costs because of the plan. The plan actually will benefit South Carolina by cleaning up power plant pollution while costing the state little money, environmental lawyer Blan Holman said. South Carolina power plants would easily comply and have enough capacity to sell pollution credits to other states, said Holman, who is with the Southern Environmental Law Center. Some estimates indicate the state could earn $1 billion by selling excess credits to other states.”
