President Trump is working on an “energy independence” executive order, which will dismantle many of Obama’s signature global warming policies.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt, the issue will make “sure that we have a pro-growth and pro-environment approach to how we do regulation in this country.”

Pruitt also said the executive order is “going to address the past administration’s effort to kill job across this country through the Clean Power Plan.”

According to ABC News:

“Pruitt also revealed in an interview with ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos on Sunday that President Trump will this week sign a new executive order that will eliminate a signature Obama-era policy for combating climate change, the Clean Power Plan.

“The policy, which the Supreme Court put on hold pending judicial review, aims to cut carbon emissions from U.S. power plants. But Pruitt said on ABC’s “This Week” that the Obama administration had “a very anti-fossil fuel strategy, coal, natural gas and the rest” and that Trump aims to change that with the goal of producing jobs and lowering electricity rates for consumers.

“The former Oklahoma attorney general also suggested the Paris climate accord is unfair to the U.S.”
