The Obama administration is out to destroy the coal industry with crippling new environmental regulations, according to Steve Goreham, executive director of the Climate Science Coalition of America.

"The president has not been able to get anything through Congress over the last few years," Goreham told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"And since 2009, he has tasked the Environmental Protection Agency, effectively doing it through regulations rather than through legislation," he said.

Story continues below video.



"Right now, the EPA is trying to put regulations on all existing coal-fired power plants in the United States,'' Goreham said.

Goreham, author of "The Mad, Mad, Mad World of Climatism," said coal-fired power plants provide the largest share of our electricity, nearly 40 percent.

"They're the lowest cost. And so the EPA is forcing them and saying that you must adopt a thing called carbon capture and storage, which is very expensive," he said.

"The Department of Energy says that will add 70 percent to the cost of electricity, even if it can be done . . .  So it is not a good policy, it's going to be expensive for all Americans, and it's very unfortunate."

Goreham said the recent polar vortex, which delivered bone-chilling temperatures to much of the nation, is further reason to be skeptical of global warming.

"Winter's always a bad time for the climate business because we have these storms," he said.

"They've said in the past that we're going to see less and less snow, but for example in Chicago here, we already have 35 inches this year and our annual average is 31 inches . . .

"Nature doesn't seem to want to agree with the ideology that man is causing dangerous climate change and global warming."
