The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE) is actively and negatively lobbing US Climate Change legislation. ACCCE appears to support climate change denial, releasing a report in 2014 questioning the science and following this up with blog posts and CEO messaging. ACCCE does not support government regulation to respond to climate change, has criticized emissions reductions efforts of the Clean Power Plan as 'trivial' and has opposed the Paris Climate Agreement as 'an exercise in futility'. Since November 2016, ACCCE has been vocal in calling on President Trump to roll back on US climate regulation. ACCCE has taken legal action against the US Clean Power Plan, winning a 2016 Supreme Court decision to delay the plan's implementation. In consultation with the US Environmental Protection agency in 2014 and 2016, ACCCE opposed the Clean Power Plan as illegal, economically harmful and 'part of a foolish strategy' to phase out the use of affordable 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 2016 'Coal Facts' mini-website.
