"Koch’s AFP Pushes ‘War On Coal’ Astroturf In Ohio"
“The EPA is over-regulating. They’re regulating greenhouse gases without a vote of Congress, and what they’re doing is killing the coal industry in Ohio and here in West Virginia,” said Rebecca Heimlich, the Ohio Director of the Americans for Prosperity Foundation, funded by the Koch petrochemical billionaires. Heimlich was a featured speaker at a “War on Coal” rally in Moundsville, OH, Thursday night. She pushed the false claim that old coal-fired power plants are being phased out because of new clean air rules, when they’ve been scheduled to close for years.
