The White House's New Carbon Reduction Plan Is Already In Trouble

President Obama and his administration are trying to keep the U.S. moving forward on the issue of climate change, despite what President-elect Donald Trump has promised to do while in office.
The White House unveiled a plan for the U.S. to emit at least 80 percent less carbon in 2050 than it did in 2005.
But with Trump winning the election, it seems unlikely that the plan will be around for much longer. He's consistently gone against the overwhelming scientific consensus that climate change is real and needs to be addressed.
