The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE) is actively lobbying in opposition to any US action on climate change. ACCCE has actively promoted climate change denial in a 2014 report, in blog posts and through CEO messaging and appears unsupportive of any government regulation to respond to climate change. ACCCE has criticized the emissions reductions efforts of the Clean Power Plan as “trivial” and has labelled the Paris Climate Agreement “an exercise in futility”. Since November 2016, ACCCE has been vocal in calling on President Trump to roll back on US climate regulation. In 2017 ACCCE has supported the repeal of the Clean Power Plan, lobbied for the introduction of coal subsidies to preserve grid reliability and urged the government to “rebuild coal equal to the effort to tear coal down”. ACCCE has taken legal action against the US Clean Power Plan, winning a 2016 Supreme Court decision to delay the plan's implementation, and in 2014-17 consultation responses opposed the Clean Power Plan as illegal, economically harmful and “part of a foolish strategy” to phase out fossil fuels. ACCCE strongly opposes a low-carbon energy transition and has promoted a long-term role for coal in the US energy mix through advertising campaigns and a 'Coal Facts' mini-website. In 2017 ACCCE’s President Paul Bailey further urged the EPA to end all policies causing the closure of US coal plants.
