Report summary

As the inauguration of President Donald Trump approaches the future of federal action on energy and climate change remains highly uncertain. And while nothing is set in stone there is mounting evidence that the new administration will drastically change course from the path set out by President Obama. Among the most recent news: The presumptive head of the EPA has actively battled the Obama administration s climate policies in his role as Oklahoma Attorney General Trump s DOE transition team sent a list of 74 questions to the agency that strongly suggest major changes and budget cuts are forthcoming President elect Trump has recently indicated that nobody really knows whether climate change is real and that withdrawal from the Paris climate accord is possible. While no outcome is preordained it is probably safe to assume that the U.S. will not take significant federal action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions over the next four years.
