    As I stated before, the air and water will be cleaner when he leaves office.
    EPA cheers decline in U.S. greenhouse-gas emissions under Trump administration
    The Environmental Protection Agency announced Wednesday that U.S. greenhouse gas emissions dropped by 2.7 percent last year, the first year of the Trump presidency, even as the administration slashed environmental regulations and global emissions continued to climb.

    “Thanks to President Trump’s regulatory reform agenda, the economy is booming, energy production is surging and we are reducing greenhouse gas emissions from major industrial sources,” said Andrew Wheeler, acting administrator of the EPA.

    Did you just post links saying the "
    The yearslong decline in U.S. emissions has been widely credited to the oil and gas boom. Power plants increasingly turned from coal to natural gas as innovations in extraction technology resulted in lower prices."

    so let me get this straight, you are against Trump's pro-coal initiatives and pro the environmental regulations that have hampered coal as a power source?

    We know our pro dirty coal riots in St Louis btw.
