Trumps “Seven actions to protect American workers,” go against efforts made to protect our environment.
The President Elect released a 100-day action plan with promises he intends to fulfill starting on his first day in the White House. The following bullet points are taken from his “seven actions to protect American workers,” but go against efforts made to protect our environment.
*FIFTH, I will lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars' worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.
* SIXTH, lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward.
* SEVENTH, cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America's water and environmental infrastructure.
Additionally, a climate change denier who calls the environmental movement “nonsense” has been appointed to lead the EPA transition team.
How can you be an informed and inspired citizen who has a voice in protecting our environment?
