Under Trump, Americans Breathed The Cleanest Air In U.S. History, And Other Environmental Wins The Biden Administration Deleted
During his first two days â€œunifyingâ€ the nation, President Joseph R. Biden delivered for the most radical environmental interests of the Democrat coalition that nominated and elected him. After all, that is what he promised to do. Killing the Keystone Pipeline and rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement is just the start of his â€œunifyingâ€ environmental agenda.
Over the last month, the White House and federal agencies go through the same ritual of preparing accomplishment reports. And they should. My office prepared one. The secretaryâ€™s office prepared one. After all, we are proud of delivering for the American people.
The Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), which is part of the Executive Office of the President, has produced â€œThe Trump Administrationâ€™s Environmental Accomplishments.â€ Here are a few of the highlights you might not know about, especially since the Biden administration immediately removed this government report from the White House website.
President Trump Signed Historic Conservation Legislation
R. 1957, the â€œGreat American Outdoors Act,â€ the largest public lands investment in American history.
47, the â€œDingell Conservation, Management, and Recreation Act,â€ the largest public lands bill in nearly a decade, designates 1.3 million new acres of wilderness; supported land and water conservation; established a program to better respond to wildfires; and expanded access for recreational hunting and fishing on Federal lands.
Through the Interior Department (DOI), 49 trails spanning 1,645 miles were added to the National Recreational Trails System while hunting and fishing opportunities were expanded across more than 2.3 million acres at 138 national wildlife refuges and nine national fish hatcheries.
