    All References to ‘Climate Change’ Deleted From White House Website at Noon Today


    'At 11:59 am eastern, the official White House website had a lengthy information page about the threat of climate change and the steps the federal government had taken to fight it. At noon, at the instant Donald Trump took office, the page was gone, as well as any mention of climate change or global warming.'




    By: Marc Morano - Climate Depot January 20, 2017 12:59 PM

    WASHINGTON, DC — A climate of change! Perhaps the most stark contrast between the Obama administration and the Trump administration is on “global warming” was visible today as the White House website was scrubbed of all references to “climate change” at exactly noon today as President Donald Trump was sworn in.

    Climate Depot statement: “Climate skeptics are thrilled that one of the very first visible changes of the transition of power between President Obama and President Trump is the booting of “climate change” from the White House website. Trump is truly going to make science great again and reject the notion that humans are the control knob of the climate and UN treaties and EPA regulations can somehow regulate temperature and storminess. Welcome to the era of sound science!”

    Trump posts first order of business – kill the Climate Action Plan and Waters of the U.S. rule

    Anthony Watts / 11 mins ago January 20, 2017
    From USAToday:

    Trump begins with call to kill climate action plan
    WASHINGTON —- As President Trump delivered his inaugural address Friday, his new White House team posted a proposal to eliminate President Obama’s environmental regulations.

    “For too long, we’ve been held back by burdensome regulations on our energy industry. President Trump is committed to eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule,” reads the top issue brief on the new president’s White House web site. “

    New executive actions are expected later Friday as the nation’s 45th president begins his administration.”

    At noon, as Trump took the oath of office, the government switched over the White House web site from Obama’s to Trump’s. (Obama’s is now frozen in time, archived by the National Archives and Records Administration under the Presidential Records Act.)

      First actual act of his admin was to have HUD cancel a 1/4 point reduction the fees it charges on mortgages. Cost for those that use FHA loans just went up for those that need that type of loan.

      Thanks for looking out of the little guys that put you in office President Trump.

        Good news!

          Great, now let's see if the Senate will get off it's butt and confirm some nominations.

          Obama got SEVEN his first day, by the end of today we will see how obstructionist the Dems plan to be. They can't even stop it, by they can delay the votes.
          Pointlessly, but we shall see.

            You seem to have already forgotten that Trump is a highly successful businessman, not an incompetent political hack like the last guy.

            Cheap mortgages caused the housing market to implode in the past. Is that what you wanted this time?

            Housing values need to go up, not down. Being able to buy a home is NOT a Constitutional "right".

            Meanwhile,back in the real world, Trump signed a large stack of Executive Orders this morning. I'm interested to see what those were, besides appointments to various Cabinet posts.

                I'm all for interest going up across the board, for obvious economic reason that not surprisingly escape you.

                  The people who were hurt the worst were the willingly ignorant poor who the government harmlessly encouraged to take out loans they could not afford.

                    The cost didn't go up for those in need of that type of loan, the cost remains the same.

                    The mortgage-fee reduction was originally announced January 9 and was supposed to go into effect on January 27.

                    I wonder why President Obama didn't do this earlier while he was President.

                      No....that is not what that does. The "little guy" is paying the same amount that he paid yesterday. This 'cut' wasn't due to occur until after the 27th. A week after President Obama left the office.

                        Because he was "looking out of the little guys."

                            Actually, in the housing market, it was the middle class that got slammed the hardest by Obama / Democrat policy and decisions.

                            First you have the Consumer Credit Protection Act. This was part of the Frank-Dodd reforms. It allowed credit card companies to up rates on people with outstanding balances from previously low rates of interest to usurious ones for the slightest of reasons. People found overnight that previous card balances with single digit interest now had a 25 to 30% one on their balance and could no longer make the minimum payments.

                            Then came Frank Dodd. That crippled the mortgage and loan industries post recession making the come back of the housing market in particular a slow and under performing market.

                            The previous mortgage market (largely engineered by the same people in Congress that wrote the supposed "fix" in Frank- Dodd) also allowed the Middle Class to get hit hard. Second and third mortgages, interest only mortgages, ARMs, etc., all allowed many middle class persons to dabble in secondary homes, real estate speculation, and the like on very thin margins or entirely on credit.

                            Zero down and interest only mortgages in particular allowed people to get into a home or buy a second property with nothing but credit and as essentially renters hoping to cash in on rising equity. When the housing market collapsed, they could walk away for no more than a hit on their credit score.

                            Then comes the massive increase in student loan availability. Couple that with a war on for-profit colleges, and you got a perfect storm. The economy was tanked, people could go to college on the government's dime and when they got out they had massive debt and limited job opportunities, often such that it was counter productive to even have a job.

                            Next came the repeated bouts of unemployment benefit extensions, Obama's attempts to remove limits on welfare and related programs implemented during the Clinton administration, and the like. This allowed people to move out of the job market putting the labor utilization rate at the lowest level it had been in over half a century.

                            Obama did terribly with the economy.
