Abstract

This research examines the stance taken by the Trump administration on the issue of climate change, as represented by the implementation of policies, appointing of relevant cabinet positions and the changing of various environmental regulations. The administration's stance on climate change is evaluated in two aspects: its stated validation - or rejection - of current climate science, and the specific environmental policies it has supported. The resulting effects of the policy decisions made by the Trump administration are evaluated to determine if they have been harmful or beneficial. The actions taken by the U.S. government are also considered in a global context by comparing them to those made by other nations.
