'Donald Trump launched an all-out attack on clean air, clean water, clean energy, public lands, and our climate. Trump unveiled an executive order aimed at repealing the Climate Action Plan and the EPA’s Clean Power Plan. To do that, he’s directing federal agencies to reconsider the mandate to cut emissions from coal-fired power plants, end the moratorium on new coal leases on federal lands, cancel new standards governing methane pollution from oil and gas operations, and throw out any consideration of how carbon pollution harms public health and our economy. .Beyond the dubious legal footing of these actions, though, it's also important to expose the lies behind them. Lie number 1 is that Trump can instantly undo our progress. We've already secured the retirement of more than 250 polluting coal plants. Lie #2 promoting fossil fuel development would create more jobs.'
