Trump Corruption: Coal King Ordered Trump to Withdraw from Climate Accords, Suspend Workers/Environmental Rules

Bob Murray, defacto climate chief of Trump cabal and world's largest polluter

Editor’s note:  For all those “Corrupt Hillary” shills, this is the real deal, a smoking gun that will shorten your lives, run up energy costs and kill mine workers.

Coal executive Bob Murray last year presented Trump administration officials with half a dozen draft executive orders aimed at exiting the Paris climate accord and peeling back coal regulations.

All President Trump had to do was sign them.

The documents, released this afternoon under the Freedom of Information Act to E&E News, reveal new details about a secretive meeting in March of last year among Murray, Energy Secretary Rick Perry and other top agency officials.

It does not appear that Trump signed the orders.

But the documents provide a further glimpse into the Murray Energy Corp. CEO’s efforts to persuade the federal government to repeal environmental regulations he deemed a burden to his industry. Parts of the coal executive’s proposed action plan have been previously reported, but other elements — like the executive orders — have not.

In a series of letters dated March 28, 2017, Murray laid out the orders for Perry and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt to review and consider, including language to exit the Paris Agreement.

“President Trump should issue an executive order to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord, and/or to direct the relevant federal agencies that they shall not require coal-fired electric generators to take action to comply with the Accord,” Murray wrote.

Other executive orders called for suspending EPA rules, including regulations for effluent limitations, coal combustion residuals, the utility MACT rule, ozone, and the Mine Safety and Health Administration’s dust rule.

Murray also called on the Trump administration to direct EPA and Congress to withdraw or suspend the endangerment finding, an action the coal executive included under a section titled, “specific changes that cannot be effected through executive order.”

  1. LBJ wasn’t the mastermind behind the JFK killing, most of the ‘evidence’ that is put forward to support that notion is crap based on the lies of Madeleine Duncan Brown.

  2. We have had over a century of development of the gasoline engine as applied to the automobile. With all its environmental and other problems the only amazing thing is it runs at all. And what about all those wars for oil? Imagine if we had had a century of development of the steam engine as applied to the automobile. We would have been energy independent long ago. All the early problems with steam power as applied to the automobile were solved in about 20 years. Steam power has enormous low end torque. You have all heard the stories of your Grand Pa’s Stanley Steamer going through the back wall of a garage due to a leaky steam valve. This fact means steam power does not even need a complicated and expensive transmission at all. Watch videos of Big Boy, the largest steam locomotive before WWII. It could pull a fully loaded train 5 1/2 miles long on level track! How many diesel electrics would it take to do that. Steam engines power nuclear submarines. An accident of history and Henry Ford took us down the wrong track with the complicated gasoline engine when steam would have been a better choice. After all both have environmental problems to overcome. But steam can be produced by burning anything not just highly refined fuel made from oil. Steam engines are external combustion engines; gasoline engines are internal combustion engines.

    • Steam engines were too inefficient, too polluting, too difficult to maintain, they were never a practical solution for road transport outside of slow speed heavy haulage over short distances. On the railways, they were incredibly labour-intensive to operate, making them multiple times more expensive to operate. To start a steam engine takes over an hour, you have to light a fire, slowly build it up until eventually it is hot enough to generate a head of steam in the boiler, whereas a diesel engine, you just turn a key and off you go. Then when you come to turn a steam engine off, you face an even longer and very dirty job, you have to drop the fire out of the firebox then go through a whole series of very dirty tasks such as cleaning out the smokebox (that’s what the hatch on the front of a steam locomotive is for). Steam engines require a lot of expensive infrastructure too, you need coal and water supplies at frequent intervals as even the largest tenders couldn’t carry enough water for more than a couple of hundred miles. For instance, the express locomotives that ran from London to Scotland used to have to refill their tenders with water twice along the way, meaning they either had to stop and use a water tower or slow down and use a scoop to take it from a water trough between the rails. Switching to diesel saved the railways vast sums of money in infrastructure and manpower costs. The real missed opportunity was Tesla’s electric car – he converted a Pierce Arrow to run on electricity, he replaced the engine with an electric motor and powered it with a small battery not much larger than a standard automotive one. Clearly, he had worked out how to do what Keshe claims he can do – harness the electric potential of the aether, or what some call ‘zero point’ energy. The modern day Tesla car is a total scam, it has nothign at all in common with Tesla’s technology other than it uses an electric motor. A modern Tesla has a 900 pound battery pack and has to be charged up every few hundred miles from a power source that was most likely generated by burning fossil fuels whereas the original Tesla electric car could run and run and run without ever needed to be recharged.

    • Good points, I’d forgotten the details of Tesla’s car, but now you mention them I do remember. I know a lot about lithium battery packs as I have built a few myself using similar 18650 cells to the ones Teslas use and they can indeed be dangerous, any breach in the metal canister can result in a fire, short circuits can generate enough heat for them to eventually catch fire too. Lithium batteries should never have been used for cars, rather, the type of Nickel Metal Hydride cell developed by Panasonic in the 1990s and used in cars like the original electric Toyota Rav4 and the Chevy EV1 should have been used. They were because the patent was bought up by one of the big oil companies (Texaco if memory serves me right) and they refused to licence the cells so Toyota and others simply couldn’t obtain and use them anymore.
