The First Event
The first Earth Day was celebrated around five decades ago. The day was celebrated as a result of a devastating oil leak, considered as the tipping point for starting new environmental moments.
Over 196 countries around the world agreed to cut down their carbon emissions in 2016. As a result, they vowed to increase efforts for reducing global temperatures by 2°C to pre-industrial levels.
In conclusion, the US Ex-President Barrack Obama agreed to reduce carbon emissions in the United States by 26% over the next ten years.
Donald Trump and Earth Day
When it comes to Donald Trump, everything turns upside down. Therefore, celebrating the Earth Day is no different.
Seems like, Donald Trump openly criticized the initiatives taken to protect the environment. The US President passed an Executive Order to review the measures which consequently cease application of the order which ceased energy production from fossil fuels.
“With today’s executive action, I am taking historic steps to lift the restrictions on American energy, to reverse government intrusion and to cancel job-killing regulations. We’re ending the theft of American prosperity and rebuilding our beloved country. We’re bringing back those magnificent words ‘made in the USA.”
