A Running List of the Trump Administration's Assault on the Environment and Science
One of the promises that Donald Trump made to his Republican base was that he would roll back environmental regulation in America. Unfortunately, it's one area in which he has been successful because he can do much of the damage through executive branch policy and without having to go through congress. So, much of it can be done quietly, without a public debate. And unlike foreign policy or trade policy, the negative results from his actions on the environment are generally incremental and show-up years after the new policy has been implemented. But when the harm does appear it can take decades to fix, or, in the case of climate change or protecting endangered species, it can be irreparable.
National Geographic has kept a running list of the Trump Administration's assault on environmental regulation and its efforts to limit federal funding for science. They update it frequently.
National Geographic: The Trump administration’s tumultuous presidency has brought a flurry of changes—both realized and anticipated—to U.S. environmental policy. Many of the actions roll back Obama-era policies that aimed to curb climate change and limit environmental pollution, while others threaten to limit federal funding for science and the environment.
