Donald Trump on Monday outlined some of his main goals for the first 100 days of his presidency, and ― surprise, surprise ― they include some doozies for the environment.

In a video message posted to YouTube, the president-elect said he plans to follow through on pledges to lift regulations on the fossil fuel sector, create “millions” of high-paying jobs, and flout the environmental legacy of President Barack Obama.

“I will cancel job-killing restrictions on the production of American energy, including shale energy and clean coal, creating many millions of high-paying jobs,” Trump said in the video.  “That’s what we want, that’s what we’ve been waiting for.”
