Donald Trump is leading the way to protect America’s environment.
His administration is putting an end to climate change regulations and rolling back the Clean Power Plan, the landmark Obama-era law that required states to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
It also repealed the EPA’s Clean Power Rule and will now allow coal companies to sell carbon credits to states.
The White House announced on Monday that it will move forward with the Clean Air Act’s Clean Coal Rule and Clean Water Rule, both of which were approved by Congress in the last Congress.
The president is also calling for more than $5 billion in infrastructure spending, including the construction of more coal-fired power plants.
Trump has also made it clear he will not rescind the Clean Water Act, the centerpiece of the Obama administration’s efforts to fight pollution from coal-burning power plants, which have been a key source of pollution to waterways, wetlands, and groundwater.
Trump, who is expected to be sworn in on Jan. 20, is a strong supporter of coal.
But he also promised to cut pollution from the power sector, a position he has yet to follow through on.
“We’re going to put coal miners back to work,” he said in May.
“That’s not just a slogan.
That’s going to be the reality.”
A look at Trump’s administration and how it has changed over time: Trump is expected in the White House by the end of the month.
The Trump administration, like the Trump campaign, has largely been focused on the environment.
The president has promised to use his bully pulpit to “bring the American people together to fight for America’s future.”
He also has vowed to “make America great again” and to “get it right.”
He has said that the United States is “the only major country in the world that can truly be called a world leader on environmental issues.”
The EPA has taken a number of actions aimed at protecting the environment since the administration took office in January.
On Monday, the Trump administration announced that the EPA would no longer conduct studies into whether coal power plants are more polluting than natural gas.
As part of the move, the EPA will no longer consider carbon emissions from coal power production to determine whether a plant is a safe source of power.
The EPA also will not allow coal power stations to sell greenhouse gas credits to state governments.
“The Trump administration is going to reverse the Obama legacy and reverse the impact of a lot of the policies that were put in place by the Obama Administration,” said Sarah Kliff, senior writer for Politico.
“The Trump EPA will not be a carbon tax, it will not take away a rule that was already written into law, it won’t dismantle the Clean Energy and Excesses Rule, it is not going to make it harder for coal miners to get a job, it’s not going back to a coal-free energy economy, and it will make the clean air, clean water, and clean air infrastructure that are so critical to our future a reality.”
Trump is also expected to sign a number more executive orders over the next few weeks, including one aimed at creating a national coal reserve to protect endangered species, the elimination of a ban on oil and gas drilling in federal lands, and other measures.
On Monday, Trump also announced that he will also be signing a number other executive orders, including a new order to reduce the federal government’s greenhouse gas footprint by as much as half.
Environmentalists are urging Trump to follow in the footsteps of his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, who, like Trump, has made climate change a top priority.
In an interview with The Washington Post on Saturday, Trump said that he would be a “leader” in addressing climate change, calling it the “greatest challenge we have to confront.”
“I think it’s going be a very different world from what it was a year and a half ago,” Trump said.
“I’m a very strong believer in taking care of our environment.
I think we’re going into a very difficult world.
I’m going to take care of it and I’m not going anywhere.
I love my country.”
