From AP News…
President Donald Trump in the coming days will sign a new executive order that unravels his predecessor’s sweeping plan to curb global warming, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency said Sunday.
EPA chief Scott Pruitt said the executive order to be signed Tuesday will undo the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan, an environmental regulation that restricts greenhouse gas emissions at coal-fired power plants. The 2015 rule has been on hold since last year while a federal appeals court considers a challenge by coal-friendly Republican-led states and more than 100 companies.
Speaking on ABC’s “This Week,” Pruitt said Trump’s intention is to bring back coal-mining jobs and reduce the cost of electricity.
I’ve been saying this a lot, but… Agent Orange hates the earth. He wants to destroy the climate. He wants to make things worse.
I think the idea of a post-apocalyptic future where a toxic climate has destroyed most life and surviving humans live underground and have to breathe bottled oxygen, and “going outside” could mean certain death without protective gear, turns him on.

If he had half a brain cell, I might say that he saw the Fallout series of games and liked the concept.
The editorial cartoon in today’s International New York Times consisted of two panels. In the first, a reporter said (paraphrasing) “Who will Trump blame for the collapse of Obamacare’s repeal?”, and the second showed hair furor, whilst signing something labeled (paraphrasing) “EPA dissolution”, bellowing (paraphrasing) “The Earth must die!”
