Out with the old White House website and in with the new. The transition to the Trump administration’s White House website is proving especially jarring for climate change advocates. On Friday, the Obama administration’s White House website, which included many pages on climate change and plans to combat it, was switched over to a website featuring President Donald Trump’s agenda. All of the climate-related pages are missing from the new website.
Instead, highlighted at the top of the issue list is the “America First Energy Plan,” which talks about the need to roll back former president Barack Obama’s far-reaching climate regulations, known as the Climate Action Plan.
More from Yahoo News:
Key highlights from the plan include:
Eliminating “harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the US rule,” which would increase American wages by more than $30 billion over the next seven years, according to the administration.
Embracing US shale and gas and taking advantage of “the estimated $50 trillion in untapped shale, oil, and natural gas reserves.” US shale has finally become cash flow neutral after years of living on debt.
Having a commitment to clean coal technology. States like West Virginia and Pennsylvania have been devastated by the collapse of the coal industry.
Eliminating US dependence on “the OPEC cartel and any nations hostile to our interests.” While the US has eliminated a good portion of its foreign dependence, it still imports 9.4 million barrels a day, according to 2015 data from the US Energy Information Administration.
Protecting our environment.
Protecting our environment from what? Environmental Activists? Looks like it.
