Donald Trump isn’t Backing down from His Terrifying Climate Policy

His approach would revoke crucial climate protections and open up huge amounts of land to fossil fuel drilling.

.

On Thursday, Donald Trump spoke before an audience full of natural gas and energy industry leaders??and the message was exactly the same as his economic policy proposal from last week: fewer environmental regulations and more land available to fossil fuel companies.

.

We need an America-First energy plan, Trump said. This means opening federal lands for oil and gas production; opening offshore areas; and revoking policies that are imposing unnecessary restrictions on innovative new exploration technologies.

.

If elected president, Trump has pledged to revoke both the Clean Power Plan and President Obamas Climate Action Plan, the cornerstones of Obamas domestic climate agenda, and important signals to the international community of the United States commitment to climate action.

.

Trump has also promised to roll back the Waters of the United States Rule, which would extend drinking water protections for millions of Americans. Instead, he said that he would redirect the EPA to refocuson its core mission of ensuring clean air, and clean, safe drinking water for all Americans.

.

Trump does not seem to understand that regulations he so deeply wants to cut are crucial to preserving clean air, and clean, safe drinking water for all Americans.

A recent Harvard study found that the public health benefits of the Clean Power Plan are so robust that they outweigh the costs of the carbon standard in 13 out of 14 power sectors within five years of implementation. The same study estimated that the plan could save some 3,500 lives every year. Similarly, the Waters of the United States rule would protect the drinking water for a third of Americans that currently get their water from unprotected sources.

Beyond rolling back crucial protections, Trumps speech on Thursday showed that he does not intend to back down on his policy proposal that would open up vast regions of the United States to fossil fuel production. His desire to open both federal lands and offshore areas to drilling is the antithesis of the Keep It In the Ground movement, which has called for an end to new leases for fossil fuels on public lands??under a Trump presidency, not only would these leases continue, but leases would likely increase.

Trumps speech comes on the same day that Oil Change International released a study illustrating that the potential emissions from the oil, gas, and coal in currently operating coal mines and oil fields is enough, if those mines and fields are operated through to the end of their projected lifetimes, to take the world well above 2 degrees Celsius of global warming. Several studies have already argued that for the world to remain below 2 degrees Celsius??the threshold agreed upon by more than 170 countries during the U.N. Conference on Climate Change last December??the majority of the worlds fossil fuel reserves need to remain untapped.
