Trump on the Environment

November 10th, 2016 at 12:37 pm

Q: Would you cut departments?

Trump: Environmental Protection, what they do is a disgrace. Every week they come out with new regulations.

Q: Who's going to protect the environment?

Trump: We'll be fine with the environment. We can leave a little bit, but you can't destroy businesses.

    He says global warming is a hoax.

  2. ceejay74 Says:

    He doesn't seem to actually have an environment section of his policy, just an "energy independence" one. It's pretty grim.

    First 100 days he's cutting climate change funding to UN and redirecting funds to US infrastucture building. I wonder if that will happen. I believe he'll cut funding but redirect?

  4. ceejay74 Says:

    Infrastructure is probably the name of a fake corporation he's set up. Kidding!

  5. creditcardfree Says:

    ceejay, It will be called Trump Infrastructure! Smile

  6. ceejay74 Says:

    LOL, it'll give him away, but he won't be able to help himself! Big Grin

  7. LivingAlmostLarge Says:

    No but he'll probably hire Mexicans to build their own wall and live on their side. After he sends them back it'll be cheaper. LOL.

    Its probably going to be fine, nobody likes pollution.

    It's not that simple, James. We here in the Northeast have been breathing dirty air for decades becus Republicans don't want to make midwestern power plants install expensive air filters.

    " A new report, Poisoning the Great Lakes: Mercury Emissions from Coal-Fired Power Plants In the Great Lakes Region, from the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) shows that 25 coal-fired power plants account for more than half of the dangerous mercury pollution emitted by the 144 electricity generation facilities in the Great Lakes region and finds that almost 90 percent of the toxic emissions could be eliminated with existing technology.

    Ohio emits the largest amount of mercury from coal-fired power plants (21 percent), followed closely by Pennsylvania (20 percent), Indiana (16 percent), Michigan (14 percent), Illinois (11 percent), Wisconsin (9.5 percent), Minnesota (6.5 percent) and New York (2 percent). Plants from outside the region also contribute in lesser amounts."

    From 2014: (CNN)For decades, U.S. climate change policy amounted to a hypocrisy associated with bad parenting: "Do as I say, not as I do."
    That began to change Monday when President Barack Obama's administration announced its boldest step yet to reduce the nation's biggest source of pollution blamed for global warming -- carbon emission from power plants.

    A proposed new Environmental Protection Agency rule would reduce such emissions 30% by 2030, compared to the levels in 2005." I imagine Trump will kill this right away.

    This is just example. Sure, in a perfect world, no one wants pollution, but when it's cleaning up pollution vs, say, some lobby group saving money, the latter usually wins.
