EPA, do us all a favor and don't pick favorites

Editors, Washington Examiner

That doesn't mean Trump should rig the rules to help coal, as early hints suggest it may. Any new climate rules should be as neutral as possible. EPA administrator Scott Pruitt put it well: "Regulatory power should not be used by any regulatory body to pick winners and losers." Trump and Pruitt, we hope, understand the difference between minimizing harm and helping industries. A wise policy would meet the statutory requirements and so defang inevitable environmentalist lawsuits, while refusing to favor coal, gas, nuclear, or renewables.
