Throughout the US presidential election campaign, President Donald Trump vowed to drastically alter the U.S.’s direction on climate and energy. His promises include; dismantling the US Environmental Protection Agency, and repealing restrictions on domestic energy development.
Critics argue that the incoming administration would quickly withdraw the U.S. from international climate change agreements, but domestic change is likely slower.
However, less than a week into his presidency, Trump has since signed two executive orders; to move forward with construction of the controversial Keystone XL and Dakota Access oil pipelines - rolling back key Obama administration environmental policies, in favor of expanding energy infrastructure.
BFM explores Trump’s commitments to America’s climate and energy policies, and other changes that are expected to happen.
