President Donald trump will sign on Tuesday a decree on the abolition of the environmental plan of his predecessor, Barack Obama put American jobs above the solution to the problem of climate change.
This order is a clear difference between trump and former President Barack Obama is considering the role of the United States in the fight against climate change.
The official representative of White house informed about this plan on Monday, according to the administration, the government can simultaneously "serve the environment and increase energy independence," urging EPA to focus on the fact that, in the opinion of the administration is its main objective: clean air and clean water.
According to the official, more important than climate change, is to protect American jobs. "This is a question that deserves attention," said the official on climate change. "But I think the President has made it clear that he is not going to pursue a climate change policy that will jeopardize the US economy. It's very simple".
In particular, the order will cancel at least 6 orders of President Obama aimed at curbing climate change and regulation of carbon dioxide emissions, including Obama's Executive order from November 2013, stating that the Federal government is preparing for the impacts of climate change and the presidential Memorandum 2016 "Growing threat to national security", which creates climate change.
"The previous administration devalued the employees of its policies," the official said. "We say we can do both. We can protect the environment and put people to work".
This order is also an attempt of the administration to trump to fulfill his promise to return more coal jobs. The official says Obama was "not useful" for the coal industry.
