President Trump has made it clear that he is going to pull back Obama’s climate change initiatives that have killed jobs and slowed growth.

However, it appears that Obama may have purposely made it more difficult for Trump to do that.

Here are the details…

From Weasel Zippers via Bloomberg:

President Donald Trump will find the job of reining in spending on climate initiatives made harder by an Obama-era policy of dispersing billions of dollars in programs across dozens of agencies — in part so they couldn’t easily be cut.

There is no single list of those programs or their cost, because President Barack Obama sought to integrate climate programs into everything the federal government did. The goal was to get all agencies to take climate into account, and also make those programs hard to disentangle, according to former members of the administration. In some cases, the idea was to make climate programs hard for Republicans in Congress to even find.

“Much of the effort in the Obama administration was to mainstream climate change,” said Jesse Keenan, who worked on climate issues with the Department of Housing and Urban Development and now teaches at Harvard University. He said all federal agencies were required to incorporate climate-change plans into both their operations.

The Obama administration’s approach will be tested by Trump’s first budget request to Congress, an outline of which is due to be released Thursday. Trump has called climate change a hoax; last November he promised to save $100 billion over eight years by cutting all federal climate spending. His budget will offer an early indication of the seriousness of that pledge — and whether his administration is able to identify programs that may have intentionally been called anything but climate-related.

A very conniving move.

Hopefully, Trump will be able to easily sort through the mess.

  1. Couldn’t President ask each entity to move climate change funds to defense related funds with one stroke of the pen, and charge department heads with identifying & moving the funds?

    • Maybe we could move all the funds that Obama used for health care, education, food stamps, disability benefits, unemployment benefits, the environmental protection agency and the consumer protection agency and move them all into building weapons. That way we could be another rouge nation, just like North Korea.

  2. I’m sure that Obama was thinking of Trump six years ago when some of these policies were put in place. Or maybe he was just trying to keep northern Alaska from being flooded by water from the melting artic ice.

    • The Arctic Sea Ice could ALL disappear/melt & it would not change the sea level. I guess the believers in AGW, flunked Physics also…
