Trump supporters asked for it and Trump is delivering as promised. One by one, Trump has been dumping all the hard work Obama was so proud of accomplishing. Soon, Obama will be erased and a distant bad memory…
President Donald Trump will sign sweeping executive orders on Tuesday that take aim at a number of his predecessor’s climate policies.
The wide-ranging orders and accompanying memorandums will seek to undo the centerpiece of former President Barack Obama’s environmental legacy and national efforts to address climate change.
It could also jeopardize America’s current role in international efforts to confront climate change.
A senior White House official says the goal is to make the U.S. energy independent and to get the Environmental Protection Agency back to its core mission of maintaining clean air and water.
In a symbolic gesture, the president is expected to sign the documents at EPA headquarters.
The major regulation targeted by the executive order will be the Clean Power Plan, Obama’s signature climate measure that restricts greenhouse gas emissions from coal-fired power plants.
Trump will order a review of that and a number of other climate efforts, including:
a federal moratorium on coal leasing
a measure that requires federal agencies to consider climate change during their rule-making process
the “social cost of carbon,” which puts a dollar figure on carbon pollution
“In taking a sledgehammer to U.S. climate action, the administration will push the country backward, making it harder and more expensive to reduce emissions,” said Andrew Steer, president and CEO of the World Resources Institute, in a statement.
“Climate science is clear and unwavering: mounting greenhouse gas emissions are warming our planet, putting people and business in harm’s way.”
Some energy companies are celebrating the anticipated move. Trump is expected to be accompanied by energy executives when he signs the order.
