Donald Trump wants to make America energy independent again — and the first step is to erase Obama’s global warming agenda.
Observers on Twitter noted Friday afternoon that the White House’s page on climate change, a creation of the Obama administration, appears to have been taken down shortly after Donald Trump assumed the nation’s presidency.
In its stead, the new White House published an explanation of what the Trump team is calling the “America First Energy Plan.”
At press time, the link to the White House page publicizing a plan to combat climate change leads to a blank page.
A cached version of the page shows that President Obama’s administration had used it to advertise a plan to reduce America’s carbon footprint and have America participate in “global effort to combat climate change.” “For the sake of our children and future generations, we must act now,” the page read, “And we are.”
It seems the presumptuous wording of Obama’s global warming agenda backfired a bit. The American people did “act now,” but not in the way that he had hoped. Rather than send another job-killing global warming activist to the White House, they sent someone who is going to put America back on track to energy independence.
