Fulfilling some of his key campaign promises to voters, President Donald Trump moved Tuesday to dismantle huge swaths of the unconstitutional “climate” regime imposed on Americans by his predecessor. Among other important targets in Trump's latest executive order is Obama's “Clean Power Plan” decree, which sought to regulate emissions of carbon dioxide, also known to scientists as the “gas of life.” The measure signed by Trump also takes aim at multiple other schemes adopted by Obama that restricted energy production or killed jobs under the guise of stopping alleged man-made global warming. Trump's supporters and climate realists celebrated the news, though some warned that there was still important work left to do on the issue. Far-left Democrats, United Nations bureaucrats, and tax-funded climate alarmists, on the other hand, were left frothing at the mouth.
It's time for Congress and President Trump to pull the multi-trillion-dollar plug on the global warming fraud industry, say climate experts at the Heartland Institute’s 12th International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC-12) in Washington, D.C.
Back to the Stone Age: Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, a top climate alarmist for Germany, the UN, the European Union, and the Vatican, says scientists must “take to the streets” because we are facing “the end of the world as we know it.”
EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s statement disagreeing that carbon dioxide is the major cause of global warming prompted much criticism from the global-warming crowd.
President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Tuesday ordering the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to review and reconsider the “Waters of the United States” (WOTUS) regulation, a radical decree issued by the Obama administration purporting to regulate virtually all water and much of the land across America. While stopping short of quashing the controversial rule altogether, analysts described Trump's executive order as a first step in that process. One prominent activist, Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, called the decision “the most pro-property rights move out of D.C. in two decades.” But there may be more to come; the latest order came amid reports that Trump is readying another executive order to dismantle Obama's “climate” regulations purporting to limit emissions of the “gas of life” carbon dioxide.
A group of radical environmentalists filed a suit against EPA head Scott Pruitt in a federal court, demanding that the EPA prevent “temperature pollution” in two rivers.
