The president of the United States of America Mr. Donald Trump introduced a new policy that instructs all of the governmental agencies to use their emergency power regarding the economic emergency. Due to this law, the governmental authorities can bypass the laws which are made to protect the environment. This policy will also speed up the process of federal approvals for highways as well as the set-up of oil pipelines and gas pipelines. We all know that Donald Trump and his administration has worked always to weaken the environmental policies just to earn some profit and for business. Donald Trump has introduced so many policies in his tenure to cut down the reviews for the larger construction projects. All of these policies comprise the health of living beings and in some way have a role in the increase in pollution.
These policies of the president of the United States of America have made the way for the ignorant of the environmental officials of the administration. Donald Trump defends himself by citing the economic emergency of the United States of America. The United States of America is currently facing a great economic emergency all because of the global pandemic coronavirus. The policy states that it is necessary to speed up the process of recovery of the economy so for this purpose we are giving the agencies and authorities to use their emergency powers and to speed up the infrastructure build-up process. All of these steps are taken to decrease the unemployment rate in the United States of America. The global pandemic coronavirus has increased the unemployment rate in the United States of America. Millions of people in the United States of America have lost their job, due to this pandemic and which has led the country to go in the economic emergency.
The president of the United States of America Donald Trump said that without these policies it would be very difficult to take the country out from the economic emergency. The United States of America could face high unemployment growth which would increase the pressure on the governmental authorities as well as the treasury of the United States of America. According to the experts, this policy would increase the environmental injustice in society. Governmental authorities would pass the bill even if it hurts the environment and health. The probability of increasing air pollution due to this is very high and it may lead to the increase of greenhouse gases.
According to the various reports and studies from the different universities suggests that the pollution and harming the environment can lead to the worst impacts on the people of color and the poor people. An economic emergency is just an excuse to impose this policy on the United States of America by President Donald Trump. Critics have questioned the president about this policy which gives the government power to bypass the national environmental policy act.
