New York’s Times ran a lengthy story on the undoability of the Clean Power Plan.
The article cited the findings of a report by the New America Foundation, which found that the plan’s repeal would have a negligible effect on carbon emissions in the short term, and that its repeal would be largely irreversible, even if enacted.
The Times said that the undoable effects of the plan would be the result of the effects of climate change, and suggested that Trump’s actions are not motivated by climate change.
But the Times also highlighted the fact that the president was likely motivated by other factors, like the threat of tariffs.
The paper reported that Trump had made numerous statements and tweets expressing disdain for China and its leaders, and was likely concerned about the impact of climate changes.
Trump had also expressed concern about the U.S. having a nuclear arsenal, which could be a threat to China.
The president also made numerous tweets criticizing China for devaluing its currency and criticized the president’s actions in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
The Trump administration has also threatened to retaliate against China for its actions in Tibet, North Korea, the South China Sea, and elsewhere, according to the Times.
The story also noted that the Trump transition team had received “a series of briefings from advisers on the subject of the clean power plan, and has been drafting a plan in secret to undo it.”
The Times reported that the transition team is considering several possible solutions to undoing the Clean Energy Act, including a new, more comprehensive tax reform plan.
The White House is also looking to make changes to the Clean Air Act, which would be especially important for the president and his administration to avoid the constitutional crisis that would result from repealing the Clean power Plan.
