Winning! POTUS Trump To Terminate Cornerstone of Obama’s Climate Change Policy
On June 1st, the White House audience broke out in applause when President Trump announced the United States was withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord.
What a wonderful day for the American worker!
The cost of the climate deal was $3 trillion.
Trump decided to stand with the American worker and against globalist elites.
Emails leaked by the Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service reveal that Team Trump is dropping “climate change” from its vernacular.
They want officials to use the term “extreme weather” patterns, instead.
The Guardian reported:
Staff at the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) have been told to avoid using the term climate change in their work, with the officials instructed to reference “weather extremes” instead.
A series of emails obtained by the Guardian between staff at the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), a USDA unit that oversees farmers’ land conservation, show that the incoming Trump administration has had a stark impact on the language used by some federal employees around climate change.
After leaving the Paris climate agreement, the Trump administration has taken aim at another cornerstone of former President Obama’s green policy — the Clean Power Plan.
The head of the Environmental Protection Agency said Monday that he will sign a new rule overriding the Clean Power Plan, an Obama-era effort to limit carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants.
“The war on coal is over,” EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt declared in the coal mining state of Kentucky. He said no federal agency “should ever use its authority” to “declare war on any sector of our economy.”
For Pruitt, getting rid of the Clean Power Plan will mark the culmination of a long fight he began as the elected attorney general of Oklahoma. Pruitt was among about two-dozen attorney generals who sued to stop President Barack Obama’s push to limit carbon emissions.
