    “…Donald Trump, the 45th president of the United States, has…threatened to pull America out of the landmark Paris climate change accord, eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency, repeal environmental regulations, and cut climate funding. He proposed an incoherent energy plan aimed at reviving the coal industry…[C]limate scientists warn that his plan is a disaster that would create lasting harm…It would actually take Trump four years to officially withdraw from the [Paris] accord, but in the meantime he can simply not enforce its guidelines while repealing climate change regulation put in place under the Obama administration, like the Clean Power Plan…Trump’s energy plans [will face little political resistance from the now Republican-dominated Congress] are also cause for alarm. He wants to bring back coal mining…[but that is unlikely because] natural gas is now far cheaper…If Trump makes good on all his promises, climate change will continue unchecked…[T]here are a few ways that the damage could be limited…Democrats will still have the option of a filibuster…[Many hope Trump will withdraw his attacks on wind and solar energy] if he sees the US falling behind economically…” click here for more
