Trump's environmental agenda: a shift toward fossil fuels
Donald Trump's potential second term may see a drastic shift in environmental policy, focusing on fossil fuel production and sidelining climate science.
- Trump's second term could dismantle major climate legislation and increase oil and gas drilling.
- The administration may disregard mainstream climate science and reverse emission-curbing regulations.
- Trump's stance could significantly impact global efforts to address climate change.
"Trump will undo everything [Joe] Biden has done, he will move more quickly and go further than he did before,"
— Myron Ebell, former head of the EPA transition team.
Why this matters:
Trump's proposed environmental policies could hinder the progress made in combating climate change, posing a threat to global efforts to reduce emissions and transition to clean energy. This shift could have lasting impacts on both the environment and international climate agreements.
