Trump    to Roll Back Obama Climate Plan, Pruitt Calls Paris Agreement a 'Bad Deal' 
 
 

President Trump will sign an executive order aimed at rolling back energy and environmental regulations, including the Clean Power Plan, on Tuesday, officials have confirmed.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chief Scott Pruitt promoted the long-awaited executive order during his appearance on ABC's This Week Sunday, as he promised that the order would "bring back manufacturing jobs across the country, coal jobs across the country" and shilled a "a pro-growth and pro-environment approach" from the White House.

Pruitt also used his Sunday show slot to blast the Paris agreement, calling it a "bad deal" and questioning why the U.S. "penalized [itself] through lost jobs."

Ken Cook, president of the Environmental Working Group, was appalled at Pruitt's statement.

"Scott Pruitt, who lacks a fifth-grader's understanding of what's causing global warming
, says the Paris climate treaty was a 'bad deal.' But the bad deal is what America's getting from this administration," Cook said
Quote
. "This decision to vacate the U.S. commitment to combat climate change is the latest evidence that this administration doesn't have a clue about what's needed to keep Americans—and the world—safe and healthy. Tragically, everyone on Earth will pay the price."

Agelbert NOTE: The Trump team is busy, busy, busy workin' hahd to make America GREAT (for Tardigrades). There's lots of GREAT news evidencing Trump Team Wrecking Crew efforts on behalf of the Fossil Fuel Planet Eaters that OWN the Trump Team (SEE BELOW).


Tillerson Wastes No Time: State Department Rewrites Climate Change Page

SNIPPET:
Quote
On the face of it, Tillerson's carefully worded comment might sound like he is in support of climate action, but the phrasing is broad enough to allow the U.S. to rewrite the terms of the deal or withdraw from it altogether, which is likely what Trump wants to do.

Agelbert Pep Talk: But  don't give up folks. There is still some hope out there that is NOT "hopium". That's right, California is going to bat against the Cretin Fossil Planet Parasites infesting our gooberment.

 

California Snubs Trump, Sets Stronger Standards Than Federal Government

California's clean air agency finalized the state's strict emissions standards for vehicles Friday, potentially foreshadowing a conflict with Washington following President Trump's promise to the auto industry last week to roll back emissions rules nationally.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The California Air Resources Board voted unanimously to keep the standards, which are followed by 12 other states, for vehicles produced from 2022 to 2025. The rules also include requirements for automakers to sell more zero-emissions vehicles in California, the country's biggest auto market.
