President Trump is promoting a clean and healthy environment for all Americans.
The President and the Administration are continuing to pursue policies that encourage environmental protection while promoting economic growth.
Since 2005, our energy related carbon emissions have declined more than any other country. This is expected to decrease in 2019 and 2020.
Our nation’s environmental record is one of the strongest in the world.
According to the White House, from 1970 to 2018, the combined emissions of the most common air pollutants fell 74% while the economy grew over 275%.
We have the cleanest air on record and remain a global leader for access to clean drinking water. The President has taken important steps to restore, preserve, and protect our land, air, and waters.
The Save our Seas Act was signed into law in 2018. This law reauthorized the NOAA Marine Debris Program, promoting international action to reduce marine debris and authorizing cleanup and response actions that may be needed.
The EPA has taken significant steps to clean up our contaminated sites and hazardous sites.
In FY2018, the EPA completed cleanup work on 22 Superfund sites from the National Priorities list. This is the largest number in one year since 2005.
The EPA is more efficiently implementing air quality standards that will better protect the environment and human health.
The President’s management of our nation’s lands promotes conservation while encouraging good stewardship and expanding recreational opportunities.
Just this year, President Trump signed legislation designating 1.3 million new acres of wilderness - the largest public lands legislation in a decade.
The Department of the Interior proposed to open more than 1 million acres of land for expanded hunting and fishing access.
The President took important action to improve management of forests to help prevent devastating forest fires.
