Climate, Energy, and Environmental Policy Changes Under President Donald Trump (Guest: Joe Bast)
Heartland Institute Co-Founder Joe Bast explores the significant changes in climate, energy, and environmental policies that have occurred since President Donald Trump took office.
Joseph Bast, co-founder of The Heartland Institute, describes the sea of changes that have occurred in climate, energy, and environmental policy throughout the Trump presidency. Armed with intellectual information from The Heartland Institute and other free market think-tanks, Trump has pulled the United States from the Paris climate agreement, ended the Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Power Plan, and rolled back numerous other rules. Simply put, Trump is keeping his promise to put America first. Still, the administration, congress, and state legislators have more to do to cement the gains already made and put America on path to continued prosperity.
