Trump’s Climate Action: It’s not an end to the coal war but the end of the world
The former president Obama argued that climate change was "real and cannot be ignored" but Trump seemed to have suspended more than half a dozen measures enacted by his predecessor.
Washington: President Donald Trump on Tuesday signed an executive order rolling back the federal government's effort to regulate climate change.
It is a number of programs that attempted to address the impact of climate change, including rising sea levels and temperatures.
What was the Climate Action Plan?
This 2013 plan rolled out by President Barack Obama focused on three areas: cutting carbon pollution in America, preparing infrastructure for the impact of climate change and making the United States a global leader in efforts to combat climate change.
It also called for the reduction of greenhouse gases, a strategy on methane and a commitment to protect forests.
