Climate suit challenging federal coal leases gets a day in court

https://www.climateliabilitynews.org/2018/01/22/climate-change-coal-leases-us/

“It all turns on what is a challengeable action. If the court says the plaintiffs have identified an action, then the plaintiffs will win,” said William Snape, a professor at the American University Washington College of Law.
“It’s astounding that we don’t have any accounting of this coal leasing program. The massive price that the public pays for coal leases—financially, ecologically and recreationally—is huge and has been understated,” said Snape, who is also a counsel with the Center for Biological Diversity, an environmental advocacy group.

A once-dismissed case against the Department of Interior for not considering the climate implications of federal coal leases may have new life.

EPA will reconsider Obama-era safeguards on coal waste

WCL Adjunct Professor Kopocis talks about the Trump administration's attempted rollback of clean water and related standards for toxic coal ash: Ken Kopocis, the former top official in EPA’s water office under President Barack Obama, said the original rule had taken industry concerns into account and that rolling it back would endanger public health. “We bent over backwards for industry both in terms of the substance of the rule and in terms of the timing,” Kopocis said. He noted the dangers that coal ash pits pose, particularly in light of the severe storms the country has experienced in recent weeks. “These things are ticking time bombs.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/energy-environment/wp/2017/09/14/epa-will-reconsider-obama-era-safeguards-on-coal-waste/?utm_term=.80173c7ba95a

Critics called the move another example of the Trump administration putting the concerns of industry over public health.
