While the media freaks out and Joe Biden hides in his basement, President Trump is doing work for the American people.
The AP reports:
Trump was traveling to Atlanta on Wednesday to formally announce changes to the National Environmental Policy Act’s regulations for conducting environmental reviews, making it easier to build highways, pipelines, chemical plants and other projects. When Trump first announced the effort in January, the administration set a two-year deadline for completing full environmental impact reviews while less comprehensive assessments would have to be completed within one year. The White House said the final rule will promote the rebuilding of America.
Of course, environmentalist pressure groups and lobbyists are attacking the plan, saying that it will destroy the planet and other such nonsense. Don’t listen to them.
“This may be the single biggest giveaway to polluters in the past 40 years,” said Brett Hartl, government affairs director at the Center for Biological Diversity, an environmental group that pursues “energy justice,” and that boasts it has filed 214 lawsuits against President Trump.
If you can’t conduct an environmental review in two full years, (which is almost twice as long as it took to build the Empire State Building), then you’re clearly just stalling. That in fact, is exactly what environmentalist groups love to do, and they’re mad that a favorite tactic is being taken from them
