The section of the White House website on climate change has been removed. Now that President Donald Trump has been inaugurated, anything that had been on the White House website during the Obama administration has been moved over to an archival web address that has been designated obamawhitehouse.archives.gov. Moreover, the entire White House website has changed over to reflect the new administration. Here below is the Trump administration's summation of its America First Energy Plan.
 
 
In place of the Obama administration's global climate change pages, the Trump White House has in its place an America First Energy Plan. Also, included is an America First Foreign Policy.
"A brighter future depends on energy policies that stimulate our economy, ensure our security, and protect our health. Under the Trump administration's energy policies, that future can become a reality," the plan says. It promises the elimination of  "harmful and unnecessary policies" such as the Climate Action Plan. The latter is former President Obama's mutli-agency plan to address climate change, and the Environmental Protection Agency's Waters of the United States rule.
 
The White House website also notes the Trump administration's economic policy: Bringing Back Jobs and Growth.
The Trump administration, according to the website, is "committed" to creating clean coal technology and to "reviving America's coal industry, which has been hurting for too long." The Trump administration also called for more fracking -- the hydraulic fracturing used to release oil and natural gas deposits -- which has made the U.S. a leading producer and net exporter of natural gas. Trump plans to use the revenue from energy production to fund his infrastructure plan, acording to the website.
