Trump Makes Major Change to US Climate Change Narrative

Matt McGrath

28 March 2017

BBC News

http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-39419074

.

.


"This is, I think, one of the most historic attacks on climate and
environmental action that the US has ever seen," said Liz Perera from the
Sierra Club.

.

Her words are certain to cheer Trump supporters everywhere.
Green "job-killing" regulations limiting energy production have long been
a red rag for Donald Trump, as candidate and President.

.

His new energy independence executive order seeks to radically change the
US narrative on climate change, its causes and its importance. The best
way of fighting global warming according to the new outline is to create
prosperity. Environmental regulation should be about air and water. CO2,
in this light, is your friend.

.

Supporters believe that cutting back Obama climate regulations will create
thousands of jobs in the newly liberated oil and gas industries.
His opponents agree the new order will be a job creator - but they'll be
jobs for lawyers, not in the coal fields.

Front and centre is practical action on the Clean Power Plan (CPP), the
Obama project to cut fossil fuels from electricity production. Although it
has long been tied up in the courts, the CPP will be left to fester there
while the new administration comes up with a much weaker replacement.
"Undoing the rule will not be straightforward," said Prof Bruce Huber,
from the Notre Dame law school.

.

"For the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to reverse course, it will
have to propose a new rule, with all the lengthy procedures that entails.
When President George W Bush tried to reverse course on some of President
Clinton's signature environmental regulations, those efforts took years
and were not entirely successful."

.

In terms of coal, the new executive order will allow the Department of the
Interior to lift a moratorium on the sale of new coal leases on federal
lands. However, boosting coal as a source of energy, and jobs, will be
very difficult.



Many coal plants have shut down not because of Obama's carbon restrictions
but because of mercury pollution associated with burning the fuel. Thanks
to fracking, cheap natural gas has soared as a source of power generation,
and renewables are taking an every bigger share.

.

Former State department climate adviser Andrew Light now works for the
World Resources Institute. Both of his grandfathers were coal miners.
"They were paid by the tonne for the coal they pulled out of the ground,
but those jobs are gone, and technology has moved beyond that and I hope
it's the case that voters in the coal states will recognise that their
jobs aren't magically coming back because of this executive order," he
told BBC News.

.

President Obama sought to put consideration of climate change at the heart
of all government policy - but by revising the social cost of carbon
measure and encouraging an immediate government review of all rules that
inhibit energy production, President Trump is signalling a change in the
widely held philosophy that CO2 is the enemy, the main driver of climate
change.

.

While rolling back Obama era ideas like the role of climate change in
national security, or how climate change should be considered in relation
to the National Environmental Policy Act, the Trump plan does not directly
attack the key finding on which much of America's carbon restrictions are
based.

.

Back in 2007, the US Supreme Court ruled that carbon dioxide gas was a
pollutant under the Clean Air Act.

.

In response, the EPA ruled in 2009 that CO2 and other gases were
responsible for contributing to climate change which results in a threat
to the public health and welfare of current and future generations.
This "endangerment finding" compels the federal government to regulate
emissions of CO2. And according to some environmentalists, this finding is
the solid rock that Trump's plans will be dashed against.
