Proposed Trump Rule Cuts Out Climate Change Considerations in Infrastructure Planning

Federal agencies would no longer have to take climate change into account when they assess the environmental impacts of highways, pipelines and other major infrastructure projects, according to a Trump administration plan that would weaken the nation’s benchmark environmental law.

The proposed changes to the 50-year-old National Environmental Policy Act could sharply reduce obstacles to the Keystone XL oil pipeline and other fossil fuel projects that have been stymied when courts ruled that the Trump administration did not properly consider climate change when analyzing the environmental effects of the projects.

Said law had zero to do with anthropogenic climate change. It has been hijacked by climate cultists, just like they hijack most things.

According to one government official who has seen the proposed regulation but was not authorized to speak about it publicly, the administration will also narrow the range of projects that require environmental review. That could make it likely that more projects will sail through the approval process without having to disclose plans to do things like discharge waste, cut trees or increase air pollution.

The new rule would no longer require agencies to consider the “cumulative” consequences of new infrastructure. In recent years courts have interpreted that requirement as a mandate to study the effects of allowing more planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. It also has meant understanding the impacts of rising sea levels and other results of climate change on a given project.

Good. It’s time to end this charade, this scam. The same climate cultists who whine about fixing the infrastructure are also the same people who make it that much harder to fix through their idiotic, dangerous requirements to include Hotcoldwetdry review.

    No mention of the Trump admin rationale that Suleimani was in town to rout Iraq.

    Little Marco tweeted: “At the direction of Iran’s Supreme Leader, Soleimani was plotting a coup in Iraq. He was corrupting/threatening politicians, exploiting Iraq’s resources & bringing a large military force loyal to him, in an effort to make Iraq a platform to attack the U.S. & our allies.”

    Wouldn’t you expect Suleimani to be a bit sneakier if he was there for a coup? Flying into Baghdad?

    Just more lying scheisse from trump.

    Who you gonna believe, the Gray Lady who told us about how the Russian collaboration and the Ukrainian phone call were the straight skinny or the Pentagon who had the facts?

    More “some officials” without any substantiation.

    Again.

    And I twatted nothing. I quoted an article with links to the Pentagon with direct statements.

    Which I noted, unlike you who just shoots off his mouth without any substantiation whatsoever.

    Just like the Gray Lady.

    Wouldn’t you expect Suleimani to be a bit sneakier if he was there for a coup? Flying into Baghdad?

    Why not? He figured he owned the place.

    Same way Heydrich thought “his Czechs” would never dare harm him.

    Then the Czechs were canceled.

    PS Funny how you revert to Nazi all the time. Too embarrassed to say fecal effluvia or just another Freudian slip showing us who you really admire?

    Y’know Zippy hates being part black no matter how much he’s tried to coast on it. He’d give anything to be white and walk in the front door of all those country clubs.

    Just like you.
