Jay Lehr: The Possibilities for EPA and Climate Reform Under President Trump

June 6, 2017

The election of Donald Trump as President opens the door to substantial reform in the areas of environment, climate, and energy.

Jay Lehr, science director with the Heartland Institute, argues the Environmental Protection Agency has come a long way from its roots, to being a wholly owned subsidiary of the radical environmental movement and that climate policy is based on the false premise human actions dominate climate. The election of Donald Trump as President, provides a powerful opportunity to reform energy and environmental policy and roll back the economically harmful actions taken by the Obama administration.
