Trump To Roll Back Yet Another Obama ‘Climate Change’ Rule

They keep falling like dominoes

(Daily Caller) President Donald Trump will rescind an Obama administration policy requiring government agencies to take into account global warming-induced flooding and sea level rise for federally-funded projects.

Trump will repeat the climate order that President Barack Obama signed in 2015 as part of a broader effort to streamline infrastructure permitting. Administration officials said the current process is long and cumbersome.

“For far too long, critical projects have been delayed by duplicative permitting and environmental requirements which added time and unnecessary expenses to much needed projects,” Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao said in a statement obtained by Bloomberg.

Trump wants to push a $200 billion infrastructure spending bill through Congress this fall, which he hopes will mobilize $800 billion in state and private funding. A cumbersome permitting process could hold up infrastructure projects.

Furthermore, Obama’s executive order to “improve the resilience of communities and federal assets against the impacts of flooding” could increase the upfront costs or even eliminate projects in the pipeline.

The destruction of Obama’s Hotcoldwetdry rules are coming slowly, but they are coming. They are typically burdensome, costly, create more red tape, can stop projects, and give the federal government more and more power. And, yet, the people who push Hotcoldwetdry rules, such as Obama, are massive climate hypocrites in their own lives.
