BANNING—“Climate Change”, “Paris Agreement”, “emissions reduction,” and similar phrases at the Department of Energy
DISMANTLING—The Clean Power Plan
DELETING—Climate change data from federal government web-sites
ELIMINATING—“Social cost of carbon” and climate change impacts in decision making
PUSHING FORWARD—Coal mining, Dakota Access and Keystone Pipeline construction
WITHDRAWING—From the Paris Climate Agreement
GIVING UP—Our moral standing in the world as a climate change fighter
