What the shit?

The Trump administration is expected on Wednesday to formally revoke California’s authority to set auto emissions rules that are stricter than federal standards, taking a major step forward in its wide-ranging attack on government efforts to fight climate change.

The formal abolishment of one of California’s signature environmental policies — tailpipe pollution is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States — will be announced Wednesday afternoon at the Washington headquarters of the Environmental Protection Agency, according to two people familiar with the matter. Mr. Trump at the time will be traveling in California, where he is scheduled to attend fund-raisers in Los Angeles and Silicon Valley.

Lawyers said the action takes the administration into uncharted legal territory in its battle with the state, which has vowed to fight the change all the way to the Supreme Court.

“This is unprecedented and a tremendously big deal,” said Richard L. Revesz, a professor of environmental law at New York University, noting that no administration has ever revoked a state’s authority to regulate its own air quality in the past.

For those who are just confused by this extremely bizarre decision, you have to remember that Trump was pissed off that car manufacturers had struck a deal with California to limit the emissions of their automobiles to fall in line with that state’s new standards. (Link)

Of course, the Feds are NOT offering a better alternative, which is why the California plan got so much support.

Trump has no desire to do anything substantial on protecting this planet from car emissions and refuses to recognize that there is a climate catastrophe headed our way. 

What’s more Trump absolutely despises California and blames them for the fact that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, so of course in his pettiness he must punish them.

Here was the response from Governor Gavin Newsom.

What he is doing here will likely end up in the Supreme Court and their decision could have significant ramifications moving forward. 

Every single day this asshole finds another way to fuck America. 

I for one am goddamn sick and tired of it.
