Interior Dept. Changes Website, Prioritizes Fossil Fuels Over Renewables


The Interior Department's new "American Energy" webpage reflects the Trump administration's calls for unfettered fossil fuel development. The webpage has gone through several revamps since Ryan Zinke took over the department in March. As reported by Motherboard, the current page, last updated on May 19, stresses "removing burdensome regulations at the Department" and omits language that emphasized developing renewable energy technologies. Additionally, the first sentence of the new page states: "The U.S. Department of the Interior is the steward and manager of America's natural resources including oil, gas, clean coal, hydropower, and renewable energy sources."
