Trump Exec. Order On Climate Change

Happening now, POTUS Trump signed an Executive Order on Climate Change rescinding much of the Obama / Clinton Climate Crap:

Trump to Rescind Obama Climate Orders with EO on Energy Independence

WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Donald Trump will roll out a new executive order on Tuesday that eliminates several Obama-era climate change orders in favor of policies centered on energy independence.

A senior administration official said that the coming EO will review some and take other Obama executive orders “off the books immediately to the extent we can,” while also looking forward to providing a “beginning framework for a strategy on energy.” Under the new order, each executive department and agency in the U.S. government will be responsible for identifying impediments to energy production.

Energy policy under the order will stay in line with the President’s desire for U.S. energy independence and return the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to its core mission. The new order establishes the Trump Administration’s approach to climate change.

Former President Obama’s Clean Power Plan, which has been tied up in the courts, will be reviewed and possibly find itself on the chopping block in Trump’s new order. There is not a time frame for review of the Clean Power Plan, but the official predicted that there would be court challenges regarding that aspect of the EO. The new rule from the Clean Air Act will also be reviewed.

MAGA for sure.

Signed in public with a large group of coal miners behind him.

    There are large numbers of rent seeking greens wanting to take legal action against this EO. This could lead to the first legal challenge to agw

    And the sky is falling! Anthony has a good article about the CO2 sensitivity. Basically, if we are to believe the empirical data, even when adjusted for alarm, the cost of affecting the climate is going to cost $Trillions per degree.

    So let the poor eat Celsius!

    Trump appears to be be a real leader!

    That, he does…

    The staging of his executive order signings is very well done to showcase “I said it, now I’m signing it. Here is how it improves things, and these are the regular folks it helps.”

    He is cementing a solid base every single time.

    Compare the nattering nabobs of negativity flinging poo at their TV or the nearest camera. No traction and folks just change the channel…

    Russians? Who cares, Trump put miners back to work and gas prices are dropping.

    Obama Care not dead yet? Can’t bat 1000, but we got to watch EPA get spanked. Get O’Care on the next at bat…

    I don’t care how many times he strikes out, it is the Home Run that gets remembered. Even if he whiffs past a fastball, you can see he’s swinging for the fence and there’s 8 more innings…

    Then he turns to the crowd, smiles, points at a fan in the bleachers, points the bat at over the fence center field, the crowd roars, and he stares at yhe pitcher… NEXT!

    Yeah, he knows how to lead a team… Maybe we need to call him Captain Trump ;-)

    it is the Home Run that gets remembered.

    Remember Bobby Richardson?

    1961 New York Yankees – Top 3 HR hitters:
    Roger Maris, Mickey Mantle, Bill Skowron.
    Bill played first baseman – hit only 28 homers that season.
    Maris hit 61, Mantle hit 54.
    Bobby who? Richardson played 2B and hit 3 home runs.

    A few folks I’ve talked to seem incapable of grasping what Trump has done.
    I think most have never encountered an elected person that attempts to keep promises.
    They are going to have a very bad year.

    :They are going to have a very bad year.

    I just hope to Almighty God that the common sense shown by this move is catching here in Australia.

  7. Bobn says:

    To my thinking, the gutting of the governments largess is the big game changer that will restore the proper responsive government we all long for.

  8. R. de Haan says:

    The Dutch continue their road to social, economic and financial suicide…

    Trump has become the boogieman of sociopaths. That’s strong.

  9. David A says:

    Go to the Huffington Post. The poor libs…Spun, triggered, and confused…”what restroom do I use now, oh god, the world is ending, peace, love- blow up the white house, hate, no, no, peace, Gollem- Smeagoll, which restroom do I use? The oceans are rising, islands tipping over, 300 mph hurricanes, hate-hate, no peace love, which restroom do I use. Damm it, hey woman bring me a cold beer and put on those fish net stockings and some Woodstock tunes”.

    Babe Ruth held the record for strike outs for over 20 years (closer to 30). But that is not what people remember him for.

  11. R. de Haan says:

    We’ll break up the US:

    Junckers talks like the Godfather of “The Sydicate”. a totally laughable nobody, a joke of a politician. Trump will have him for breakfast and topple the entire EU construct in the afternoon.

    We need to get rid of sociopathslike Junckers ASAP.

    Interesting enough all this coincides with a cold sun and a phase change from warm to cold in our oceans. Some scientists claim we have reached the end of the interglacial and tell us to prepare for a quick drop in temperatures to Ice Age Levels within 30 years. They reached their conclusions based on a study of the Ulysses Space project that focused on the sun’s corona combined with analyses of the Antarctic and Greenland ice cores among other fact finding like a totally opposite view on how our sun is powered and its activity modulated. They reject the theory of a nuclear powered sun and promote their theory of an electric universe where plasma is exchanged between star formations and planetary systems by pulse like feeds that come with 100.000 year intervalls and match up with the 100.000 year Ice Ages. They claim that 1998 marks the last maximum of solar output and that everything has gone down hill since in a proces that is already completed by 45%. The next 30 they claim will show a fast drop in temperatures as the surface temperature from our sun will drop from 5.500 degree Celsius to 4000 degree Celsius and reducing solar output by 70%.This will result is a total loss of our major agricultural area’s that currently provide the bulk of our food stocks and the loss of all major cities situated in the cold zone. In order to adapt to the new reality we would have to move to the tropical regions where land is scarce so we will be forced to build floating cities and floating farms to house and feed our populations. The propose a basalt (I heard it here first) economy that will provide us with all the resources we need to meet this immense challenge.

    For me their message represents an alternate agenda to the existing globalisation trend that was short cutted by Brexit and the election of Trump but that doesn’t mean that their views are fascinating from a scientific view. The fast, above normal expansion of the Antarctic Ice Cap and the far above normal mass increase of the Greenland Ice Cap this winter, the down trend in measured temperatures ,the number solar spot free days over the passed months, the 30% decrease in the sun’s corona over the past three cycles and quick phase change from warm to cold periods found in the Antarctic and Greenland ice cores, provide some credibility to their claim that a cooling cycle is underway but I really have to dig into their publications before I draw any conclusions, Life is too short for curious minds.

    Nice interview:

    @R. de Haan

    We’ll break up the US

    I could not figure that one out. If he had said Texas and California, I would have understood. But Ohio? Maybe he needs a geography lesson.

    @John F:

    Nope, don’t remember him… but I think that’s your point…


    It always amazed me just how fast Australia went from “more sane than the USA” to “loopy land”.

    I really hope you can recover as fast.

    @Ron de Haan:

    I like that line! “boogieman of sociopaths” ;-)


    An analog to “Follow the money!” is “Shut it off once you follow it!”

    Tends to “clarify the mind” of the former recipients…

    @David A:

    I really wonder just how they manage to not up and die, given how much they grieve and fluster…

    @R. de Haan:

    The Electric Sun thesis is interesting, but I’m not sure the energy balances. There’s an awful lot of energy coming out and little evidence that enough goes i as electric flow. I presume the balance is supposed to be made up by some kind of plasma fusion from entrained particles…

    But maybe it’s right. It would fit well with O Manuel’s thesis of an Iron Sun…

    I would like to see a big drop in temps on schedule, but the sequale would be a problem. We’d need to build a whole lot of nuclear power plants and LED lite greenhouses in a hurry, but it could be done.

    @Phil Jourdan:

    The constitution of Ohio was written in German… He likely knows Ohio due to the German heritage of the place.

    But yeah, California, Texas, Alaska, Hawaii, even Idaho (Jefferson…) would be better as an example. Yet he clearly does not know this is ‘settled law’ in the Texas Decision and no such exit is possible….

    5 & 1/2 hours of video in 3 links? Man, I don’t have that kind of time!

    Well this is interesting!
    Apparent confluence of events here where Trump’s position on US Coal industry, fair deal on trading with China and irritation over North Korea all coming together in one win win play.

    China is cutting off North Korea coal imports (punishment to NK for being jerks), replacing their coal exports with US Coal exports?, kills two birds with one stone by improving the US balance of payments to China and helps our Coal industry.

  19. andysaurus says:

    I think I read somewhere that there has never been war between two countries that rely on this level of trade. If true, this is excellent news IMHO.

  20. E.M.Smith says:


    Could also explain their easy comfort in the photos. Instead of an adversary looking to cause hurt wherever possible, Xi was greeted with (hypothetical) “I see you stopped coal imports from N. Korea; we can fill that need if you would like. Don’t want your folks being uncomfortable now do we… shall I order up a million tons for you?”

    Chineese are natural traders as is Trump. I’d expect them to both be happy with a “Let’s Make A Deal!” opposite.
