Trump’s administration on Friday has removed all mentions of the climate change from the website of White House and said that it would eliminate the Climate Action Plan.

It will seek to cut down emissions in part by means of preserving forests and encouraging increased use of the cleaner renewable fuels.

After less than half an hour Donald Trump took over as new US President, White House website was transformed and energy and climate page vanished.

It appeared as “page not found”. Websites was transformed while removing all traces of the former President Barack Obama’s climate change initiatives which previously had its own prominent and detailed webpage on https://www.whitehouse.gov/

Display and Views on Website:

Trump has castes a doubt over the degree to which human activity is causing climatic change. His nominee for secretary of the Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt, this week has expressed doubts about the science behind climate change. It even said EPA rules should not be hurting economic development.

He has even vowed to back out of the Paris Agreement which was sanctioned by the United Nations Convention over Climatic Change.

This agreement which was signed by over 195 countries is aimed for reducing dangerous increases in greenhouse gas emissions. It is being the leading cause of rising global temperatures.

Within the first 100 days of office, Trump is also planning for dismantling the Clean Power Plan. It is being regarded by the EPA as “a historic and important step in reducing carbon pollution from power plants that takes real action on climate change.”

Newer look of the White House Website has carried a set of policy pledges which has offered the broad contours of the Trump administration’s top priorities.

List is including fierce support for law enforcement bordering on vigilantism. It is an immediate elimination of the White House policy page on climate page and the notable absence of any directives which involve President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

Trump way of Work:

Law and Order Section reads, “Our Job is not to make life more comfortable for the rioter, the looter or the violent disrupter. Our job is to make life more comfortable for parents who wants their kids to be able to walk their streets safely or the senior citizen waiting for a bus or the young child walking home from school.”

Issue page of the Trump’s White House website is offering no newer plans or policies but rather a rehash of many of his campaign promises.

Its being a signal to the nation that Trump is more pragmatic than ideological and plans to implement at least the key guideposts of his campaign vision.

His policies is including plans to both withdraw from and negotiate major trade deals while growing the nations military and increasing cyber security capabilities.

It is building a wall at the nation’s southern border and is deporting undocumented immigrants who have contributed violent crimes.

Meanwhile, California has released newer measures for fighting climatic change within minutes of Trump being sworn in as US president.

It is signaling state’s commitment to be the nation’s environmental steward under an administration which has questioned the reality of global warming.

Achieving Climate Conservation Goal:

California officials said that it was a co-incidence that the plan was released 37 minutes after the inauguration. State outlined how it would achieve its goal by cutting output of heat-tapping greenhouse gases 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030.

California is planning for including an extension of the state’s controversial carbon cap and trade program. It is calling for the state’s oil refineries for cutting down their greenhouse gas emissions by 20 percent.

Mary Nichols who is chair of the California Air Resources Board says, “Climate change is impacting California now, and we need to continue to take bold and effective action to address it head on to protect and improve the quality of life in California.”
