Trump scraps Obama policy on protecting oceans, Great…

"... It addresses the previous Administration's National Ocean Policy and its Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) initiative, which caused consternation, uncertainty and concern for the offshore energy industry and other ocean stakeholders", he said in a statement.

Trump late Tuesday signed an executive order that revoked a 2010 Obama order which set protections for USA oceans, coastlines and waters of the Great Lakes.

In response to the news, Randall Luthi, president of the National Ocean Industries Association, said the order was welcome.

Industry and energy are prominent in the Trump order, which states at the outset "ocean industries employ millions of Americans and support a strong national economy". His administration has encouraged a "cooperative federalism" approach that shifts more responsibility to state governments. Obama said the spill - which killed 11 workers and spewed millions of gallons of crude - underscored the vulnerability of marine environments.

The repeal of the National Ocean Policy comes after Trump's proposal to open up more than 90 percent of federal coastal waters to offshore oil and gas drilling.

The goal of the National Ocean Council was to coordinate the activities of a wide number of federal agencies charged with regulating different aspects of ocean regulations and develop regional plans to combine these resources and streamline management.

The word "stewdarship" appears eight times in Obama's executive order, whereas in Trump's, it appears only once under the section that revokes the old policy.

Executive action from the U.S. President erased offshore energy planning burdens, an industry group said, though critics said it was a war on oceans.

"America's stewardship of the ocean, our coasts, and the Great Lakes is intrinsically linked to environmental sustainability, human health and well-being, national prosperity, adaptation to climate and other environmental changes, social justice, worldwide diplomacy, and national and homeland security", Obama's order stated.

The Trump administration has proposed drilling in almost all federal waters, a plan still in development.

U.S. Rep. Rob Bishop, a Republican and chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, said Trump's approach would "help the health of our oceans and ensure local communities impacted by ocean policy have a seat at the table".
