Trump’s Energy Proposals Considered “Frightening” by Environmental Advocates

On Thursday, while delivering a speech at the annual Williston Basin Petroleum Conference in Bismarck, North Dakota, the Republican presidential hopeful
Donald Trump promised several things that were mostly related to the energy sector. He vowed to rollback some of the most go-getting environmental policies of America and also said he would make everything possible to revive the U.S. oil and coal industries which have been suffering for long and strengthen national security.

Among the  proposals he laid out were pulling the U.S out of the U.N. global climate accord and also the approval of the Keystone XL oil pipeline that runs from Canada to the U.S and was rejected by the present government as a measure to trim emissions in the country and protect the waterways from industrial pollution.

At the conference he said "Any regulation that's outdated, unnecessary, bad for workers or contrary to the national interest will be scrapped and scrapped completely. We're going to do all this while taking proper regard for rational environmental concerns."
Though Trump's speech received loud applause from the oil executives in the crowd but drew criticism from the environmental advocates who consider the proposals from Trump "frightening".
