'Federal climate policy will all but disappear; participation in international environmental or climate treaties will end'
'Never mind Trump — the GOP Congress has a radical environmental agenda ready to go'
'Unified Republican control of the federal government over the next two years augurs a sea change in US environmental policy like nothing since the late 1960s and ’70s'
'There’s little reason to think that Trump’s environmental and climate policy will be some unpredictable, idiosyncratic anomaly like Trump himself. It will likely be standard, mainstream GOP policy, which is far more radical than anything he campaigned on.'
'GOP committees churned out bill after bill to cut research funding for renewable energy by 50 percent'
'The GOP is in a strong position to demolish and reshape the regime of environmental protection that has been built up over the past 50 years.'
Marc Morano, who publishes the climate skeptic site ClimateDepot.com, said the president-elect was not only "the most strongly skeptical" Republican president or nominee ever but unlikely to be swayed by global pressure. "Even going back to the 1980s, Trump's political philosophy was a form of 'America first' and not very supportive of international trade or similar agreements," he said. Morano has attended these summits in previous years to tell participants the United States wouldn't make good on the promises the Obama administration officials made in the negotiating rooms. He arrives in Marrakech this week for events highlighting how "Clexit," as he's termed the U.S. departure from international climate efforts, would play out. "Climate skeptics are back," Morano said in an email to E&E News. "They now control the House, Senate and ... the Presidency. Expect both international and domestic climate agenda to be reversed. It's about time!"
