With Trump and his administration of oil tycoons in office for almost two weeks, the EPA, Environmental Protection Agency, is already beginning to have its important information removed. Environmental work during Obama's administration has been removed such as federal climate change plans, mention of carbon pollution causing climate change, U.S. commitment to the United Nations climate negotiations, and partner page for the Tribal Environmental General Assistance Program (GAP). GAP helps Native American tribes be able to prepare and adapt to climate and environmental changes, funding $65.5 million in 2016. The EPA website has also been removed of mentions of the United Nations and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, removing the paragraph of U.S's commitment to help. Further detail on the removal of the mention of carbon pollution causing climate change, partnership pages also have been removed of this mention, which goes against the Paris Treaty, in which nations--including the U.S--promised to reduce greenhouse gases emissions.
This issue is important as Trump does not believe in climate change. With Scott Pruit leading the EPA, the EPA is bound to removed, all because of uneducated ignorance and the greed of oil tycoons. with the belief of corporation profits before the well being of the people. EPA information is being removed, and if Americans stay unaware to this, it allow the EPA to removed easily. As we are the people of the Nation, it is important to stand for the science and the well being of us all.
