Trump Policy on Climate Change With years of research, it has been proven that human activity, on earth, has caused temperatures to rise and is most likely to keep rising causing major environmental damage. The President of the United States, Donald Trump, who does not believe that human activity is the cause of climate change, instead he believes that climate change is a hoax brought upon from China to help them with their global warming issues. Trump does not believe scientist that have proven that the cause of global warming is the actions done on Earth. Trump has pulled out of the Paris Agreement, that was signed by 195 countries, that included an agreement from those countries to fight climate change and to speed up and step up the actions and funding needed to sustains a low carbon future, to reduce carbon emission, and other actions that will help the world from further climate change damage. The Paris Agreement also includes adapting to the climate change effects, and to help those developing countries as well. With Trump pulling out of this agreement, many developing countries will not have the funding that will be needed to help them adapt to the climate change. Instead, because Trump believes that the Paris Agreement will put the American people at an economic disadvantage, Trump’s Presidential Executive Order on Promoting Energy Independence and Economic Growth orders a review of the “Clean Power Plan” by Environmental Protection Agency’s to suspend, revise, or rescind the rules put forth before by Obama. The stunning Draft that the Environmental Protection Agency has put out is ignorant of climate change and does not mention any terms like “climate change,” “carbon dioxide,” or “greenhouse gas emissions.”  Scott Pruit, who is also a non-believer of human activity causing climate change, is an administration cabinet supported Trump’s executive order to repeal the policy put forth by Obama: the Clean Power Plan. Pruitt is the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency and does not believe that the burning of fossil fuels, like coal, is a factor of global warming.  Another administration cabinet officer that supports Trump’s new climate change policy because he is a supporter of mining and has ties to the oil and gas industries.  Congress has risen concern of the strength in Trump’s believe of the fossil fuel industry but they still choose to make laws that are in his favor. According to “The America First energy policy of the Trump Administration” the article says, “Without question, the Trump Administration and the Republican-controlled Congress are reshaping US energy policy.” Congress is, by any means necessary, making laws in favor of Trump’s climate change policy desires. Trump and Congress have both agree to remove the bans on oil and gas drilling in the US. Interest groups When Trump was running for office, he promised to commit to energy policies that lower costs for Americans and maximize the use of American oil, without depending on foreign oil. Trump had planned to terminate the policies put by Obama: the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. law. According to Trumps administration terminating these policies will increase wages over the new few years. Trump interest in bringing back the fossil fuel industry in the U.S. is because according to “An America First Energy Plan” on the white house website it states, “We must take advantage of the estimated $50 trillion in untapped shale, oil, and natural gas reserves, especially those on federal lands that the American people own” Trump is interested of the financial benefit that comes with it. With the financial advantage, he is planning on using the revenue to rebuild roads, bridges, schools, and etc. It also mentions that Trump will enforce the Environmental Protection Agency to refocus their mission of protecting the air and water. With Scott Pruitt, appointed by Trump as Administrator of Environmental Protecting Agency, Trump will do as he pleases.   Trump’s Presidential Executive Order on Promoting Energy Independence and Economic Growth position is to push for clean and safe expansion of energy resources, at the same time staying away from unnecessary regulators that limit the production of energy, coerce the economic growth, and counteracts with the job creation. Another section of this executive order put forth by President Trump, demands the head of each executive department and agency to review every existing regulation that has to deal with restrictions against the production of oil, natural gas, coal, and nuclear energy resources to be modified in favor.
