Trump Boasts of Repealing U.S. Environmental Regulations + Expanding Oil & Gas “Production”

In his “State of the Union” (SOTU) address on Tuesday, 5 February, 2019, President Trump boasted about removing “regulations,” — most disturbingly a record number of environmental regulations on fossil fuel companies designed to protect public health and safety.   After taking credit for these regulatory roll-backs endangering American citizens, he further boasted of expanding the extraction of petroleum and natural gas — the main contributors to the escalating global climate crisis.

It is difficult to imagine a more thoroughly misinformed and misguided public policy agenda — aimed at killing the prospects for the survival of coming generations — than that which the Republican party supports and stands to applaud before all the world.
