Trump administration swift to act with America First Energy Plan | The National:

"The first act of the Trump administration after Friday’s inauguration was to post on the White House website an America First Energy Plan, which promises to free America "from dependence on foreign oil". The statement of intent also says that president Donald Trump will ditch "harmful and unnecessary policies, such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the US rule," the former being former president Barack Obama’s detailed 2013 plan to reduce US carbon dioxide emissions and promote renewable energy sources, the latter a 2015 initiative to beef up protection for US waterways from industrial pollution. The new administration says, however, that "for too long we’ve been held back by burdensome regulations on our energy industry", pledging to take a more pro-hydrocarbon path. "
