TRUMP TO SIGN EN­ERGY EX­EC­U­TIVE OR­DERS

Metro USA (Boston) - - NEWS -

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump will sign several ex­ec­u­tive or­ders on en­ergy on Fri­day, a White House of­fi­cial said on Sun­day. “This builds on pre­vi­ous ex­ec­u­tive ac­tions that have cleared the way for job-cre­at­ing pipe­lines, in­no­va­tions in en­ergy pro­duc­tion, and re­duced un­nec­es­sary bur­den on en­ergy pro­duc­ers,” the of­fi­cial said on con­di­tion of anonymity. Trump in March signed an ex­ec­u­tive order to undo Obama-era cli­mate change reg­u­la­tions, keep­ing a cam­paign prom­ise to sup­port the coal in­dus­try and call­ing into ques­tion U.S. sup­port for the 2015 Paris cli­mate change ac­cord to fight global warm­ing. That order’s main tar­get is for­mer Pres­i­dent Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plan, which re­quired states to slash car­bon emis­sions from power plants.
