"Icon who saved Chrysler Lee Iacocca plus how charter schools are victims of their own success but first president trump touted his administration's environmental stewardship in a speech at the White House this past Monday from day one my administration is made it a top priority to ensure that America is among the very clean as air and cleanest water on the planet we want the cleanest air we won crystal clean water and that's what we're doing and that's what we're working on so hard trump stated goals are central to the environmental protection agency's mandate but they're also at odds with the broad thrust of the administration's actual policies could you tell us more is Liam Denning a columnist for Bloomberg opinion so Liam are trump's comments in line with the actions of his EPA no you know I think it's it's fair to say president trump is known as a lot of things Helga is not one of them so when he stays this event about his administration's environmental record I was interested for two reasons one was why is he hosting this event in the first place and then second you know what was the content that he was going to try she put out that you know on the first one it's it's interesting polling shows the most American voces do care about the environment and actually if you look at recent polls concern about the environment has been going up that's fueled by a few things I think you know one is I think there's a sort of a political effect brought about by things like the green new deal which as unrealistic because a lot of the precepts and it might seem has succeeded in just in just dragging the whole debate to the left and also making it more prominent I think the second thing is just more kind of anecdotal evidence the fact that we're seeing you know more extreme weather events like the wildfires in California the massive flooding in the Midwest and even I mean this is quite ironic on the day trump's event happened you know massive floods in Washington DC and and you know the water spilling into the basement of the White House so there's that so I think you know as president trump is looking towards the elections at the end of twenty twenty and is thinking about the sort of voices that seem to be lost in the mid terms the more moderate Republicans he might be thinking he needs to show some kind of willingness to address this issue all of the state of the environment because in general polling shows the even among Republicans of particular more moderate Republicans there is concern about the environment so that's that I think explains why he did it the more interesting thing is how he did it every comes out to language so a lot of what the presence folk about the event was targeting clean **** and clean water crystal clean water he said at one point and it's interesting because that of course really explains Cahn how the EPA was founded in the first place I mean it was established in nineteen seventy one of the events that directly preceded it was was a giant fire on the police of tiger river and and so it has always been identified with that kind of thing and and in a lot of what the president talked about it was all about you know keeping a clean in that way keeping water clean and that way dealing with Superfund sites all the traditional stuff the people associate with the EPA why I think that's interesting is because the biggest issue and environmental circles these days of the climate change and climate change is not caused by a poisonous gases caused by carbon dioxide emissions which are invisible diffuse I mean this is why it's so hard to get people to actually do anything about it would be a lot easier for call of carbon dioxide was some awful green gas that people can actually say but it isn't and so I think it's interesting the president chose a very kind of a narrow reading of what environmentalism and entails because I think it allowed him to present a face that cares about the environment but at the same time completely a lead the elephant in the room which is climate change but he denies climate change so is the fooling anyone well we won't really know that until you know so I am twenty one eight twenty am and even then we might not know it really because you know quite often climate change might be a concern for people but it isn't always necessarily the thing that makes them vote I think what's interesting about this is that in polling of America's shoots towards environmental worries what you find is concern about climate change has been going up you find though is that quite consistently higher percentages are more worried about traditional things like air pollution pollution of rivers keeping safe drinking water that sort of thing and so if this is what is driving the president's move on this it may be that he thinks well if I can tap into those concerns it seems Paul higher then perhaps I can persuade more moderate Republicans the I need in order to win the White House that I am actually doing something thank you later that's slim Denning a columnist for public opinion coming up on Bloomberg opinion the legacy of the auto industry icon who saved Chrysler Lee Iacocca I'm also and this is the number James great to see you it's been too long hi Janice it sure has is what I heard through your company hired a new head of talent management exactly she's
