By Samira Demczuk and Maria Teresa GiacomoThe American Lung Association (ALA) is fighting to hold the Trump administration accountable for its harmful policies to protect the public from the effects of air pollution.
The Trump Administration’s attempts to reduce the amount of coal power in the U.S. and restrict fracking in the United States have been both harmful and dangerous, according to the association.
In its report released Monday, the association said the administration’s plans to repeal the Clean Power Plan are “unnecessary and unnecessary” because it will not make any substantive improvements in air quality.
The report also calls for a moratorium on new coal-fired power plants.
The administration’s actions to repeal Obama-era climate protections have been harmful to public health.
The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has estimated that climate change will affect human and economic well-being in the next 30 years, as rising temperatures will reduce crop yields and increase the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
According to the Associated Press, a majority of Americans, including 71 percent of Democrats, say they believe climate change is real and happening, while just 28 percent of Republicans do.
The Associated Press reported that the Trump White House was planning to roll back key climate rules by 2017.
The ALA also believes that the administration is taking the lead on climate change policy.
The association says it’s working to ensure that all Americans have access to clean energy, including wind, solar, and hydropower.
The White House is also working to reduce carbon emissions and reduce methane emissions.
The ALA report says that coal and natural gas power plants should be phased out.
The White House has proposed rolling back the Clean Air Act in 2020.
The president has called climate change a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese government and has called for an immediate withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement.
The president has also vowed to repeal Obamacare, calling the law a “Trojan horse” that was designed to benefit powerful special interests.
In a speech on Monday, Trump said he will be taking the “absolute most aggressive action to repeal and replace Obamacare.”
The American Clean Energy & Security Act, which passed the House last week, would end the Obama-appointed rule known as the Clean Energy Production Tax Credit.
The law also would eliminate the carbon tax and the federal cap-and-trade program.
The bill was also co-sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan.
