Now the bad news:
WASHINGTON — The Trump administration next week plans to formally propose a vast overhaul of climate change regulations that would allow individual states to decide how, or even whether, to curb carbon dioxide emissions from coal plants, according to a summary of the plan and details provided by three people who have seen the full proposal.
The plan would also relax pollution rules for power plants that need upgrades. That, combined with allowing states to set their own rules, creates a serious risk that emissions, which had been falling, could start to rise again, according to environmentalists.
So the hope for our common future and America's contribution herewith lies with the state's legislators. Pollution and climate change is a global issue which we can combat. Countries whom don't act in line with the Paris agreement and thus have an unfair economic advantage (not paying for their pollution), must be taken into check by the global community. America aint special.
