Donald Trump lifts Barack Obama’s climate policies

March 28, 2017

  Before I get to the post I just want to let America’s Watchtower followers know that Lauri and I are home safely from our trip to Key West. What a beautiful location and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I am still trying to brush off the vacation hangover so it might take a day or two for me to get back into full-blog mode but here goes.

  Earlier today Donald Trump signed an Executive Order to dismantle much of Barack Obama’s climate policy. Here is more:

President Donald Trump on Tuesday signed an order to undo Obama-era climate change regulations, keeping a campaign promise to support the coal industry and calling into question U.S. support for an international deal to fight global warming.

The order’s main target is former President Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plan, which required states to slash carbon emissions from power plants – a key factor in the United States’ ability to meet its commitments under a climate change accord reached by nearly 200 countries in Paris in 2015.

Trump’s decree also reverses a ban on coal leasing on federal lands, undoes rules to curb methane emissions from oil and gas production and reduces the weight of climate change and carbon emissions in policy and infrastructure permitting decisions

  This has drawn the ire of environmentalists who are promising to challenge this is court but of course Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plan was already being challenged anyway. While that challenge was slowly working its way through the courts we can expect, if Donald Trump’s attempted action on immigration from several Muslim countries can be used as an example, the courts to move quickly to stop Donald Trump.

  With NASA and NOAA having already been caught changing historical temperatures to fudge the global warming impact it is about time to slow down on this quasi-science but real political issue.

  While the environmentalists are not happy there certainly is one group of people who are glad to see the President sticking up for them by keeping this campaign promise and that is all of those who have been hurt by Barack Obama’s war on coal.

Flanked by coal miners and coal company executives, Trump proclaimed his “Energy Independence” executive order at the headquarters of the Environmental Protection Agency.

“I cannot tell you how many jobs the executive order is going to create, but I can tell you that it provides confidence in this administration’s commitment to the coal industry,” Kentucky Coal Association president Tyler White told Reuters.

    Glad you both had some fun in the sun and re-lax-ation!
    We’re finding out – more and more – how all this is a ruse and realizing ‘anytime the enemy is pushing something as true that it’s one of their fabricated lies for personal profit, gain and MORE control.’ Oxymoron: ‘clean’ and ‘obama’ in the same sentence.

    Here’s something I ran across:
    If you check out some of the headlines you’ll see “Wiretapgate” “The Hammer computer used by the Deep State” which deal w/ Espionage ~ Bari, Hilly & Jarrett (even now conducting biz from a secure location (bug proof bubble).
    Bombshell News – “The Hammer SuperComputer Wiretapped TRUMP”

    Funny how it’s OK for them to get into other’s biz and private matters BUT not theirs!
    Just some ‘light reading’ and listening while coming back to earth Steve!

      Adding this to go w/ the ‘global warming’ experiments.
      Harvard Scientists Plan ‘Chemtrails’ Experiment On Public
      “A $20 million Harvard University project will send aerosol injections up into the earth’s stratosphere, in the world’s biggest chemtrails experiment on the public to date.

      Two US scientists say they hope to solve the problem of global warming by conducting the world’s biggest and most expensive solar geoengineering project within the next few weeks.”
      That should really help!

        But I thought aerosols were destroying the atmosphere as well?! I guess they are good after all. 😉

        Yes, they think we have to believe what they say and their arrogance will be their demise. People are not buying it any more.

      Thanks, we had a great time! I don’t have time to watch the whole video before I go to work but you make a great point of the irony of them being upset they were spied on after they spy on us all the time.
