Jeff Goodell wrote for Rolling Stone about President Trump's executive order and how even it will not bring back coal production:

The executive order President Trump signed Tuesday is his most dangerous con yet. By rolling back President Obama's Clean Power Plan and other climate-related regulations, he is willing to kill people with increased air pollution, put our national security at risk and cook the climate, all in the name of creating jobs for coal miners. Like most Trump cons, it's about duping desperate voters into believing he is fighting for them, when in fact he is stealing their future.
