Energy Independence for the WIN!

Obama’s climate change legacy took a major hit today when President Donald Trump put his signature to a new executive order.

The Obama Administration believed that energy independence, job creation, and economic growth had to be sacrificed to protect the environment.  The Trump Administration says that’s hooey; we can do it all.

  • The new order rescinds a number of Obama’s climate change orders, including the Interior Department-imposed coal moratorium and the 2013 Climate Action Plan.
  • It also directs every executive department and agency in the U.S. government to identify impediments to energy production.
  • Obama’s Clean Power Plan, which has been tied up in the courts, will be reviewed and possibly find itself on the chopping block.  Ditto the Clean Air Act.
