“5 Lies Trump Told About The Environment In One 20-Minute Speech”

“The greenwashing continues. Don’t fall for it.”

“President Donald Trump continues to greenwash his dismal environmental record ahead of the 2020 presidential election, most recently with a speech Tuesday in Jupiter, Florida, touting his “environmental accomplishments.”

Trump seems to have forgotten he’s withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement, has relaxed restrictions on air pollution, has removed climate change from a list of national security threats and has said he doesn’t believe in global warming. In March, the Environmental Protection Agency finalized a rollback of a 2012 auto emissions regulation, and last month it opened up Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for oil and gas drilling.

All told, Trump has pledged to reverse 100 environmental rules.”
