Environmental Protection Agency administrator Gina McCarthy seemed to confirm fears that the Obama administration is launching a “war on coal” through newly announced regulations. Appearing on Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday, McCarthy agreed with Maher’s suggestion that the agency’s regulations represent a war on the fossil fuel.
“Actually, EPA is all about fighting against pollution and fighting for public health,” McCarthy responded. “That’s exactly what this is.”
“Oh, great,” Maher said.
