EPA Policies Increase Carbon Emissions

Burning coal produces more carbon than burning natural gas. When the EPA moves to limit coal in the US, it reduces demand in the US and coal prices. See EIA link below. US coal producers then seek markets elsewhere, Europe for instance, where natural gas prices are much higher. More coal is burned in Europe.

Thanks EPA.

Multiple factors push Western Europe to use less natural gas and more coal
