"Greenhouse Gas Reductions Slow In 2017"

"Reductions in greenhouse gas emissions are slowing down under the Trump Administration, with level of emission of the harmful gasses falling just half a percent in 2017, according to the latest data from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), released Thursday.

Emissions have fallen by nearly 15 percent since hitting a recent high in 2007, but this year’s figures significantly trail last year's and show progress may be dwindling.

Emissions fell 2.7 percent in 2016, for example."
