David Cherney, energy market expert at PA Consulting Group, provides his perspective on a recent decision by the U.S. appeals court that granted a Trump administration request to put on hold a legal challenge by industry and a group of states to former President Barack Obama's regulations aimed at curbing greenhouse emissions mainly from coal-fired power plants, rules that the Republican president is moving to undo.
