President Donald Trump plans to sign an executive order that will lessen the impact climate change has in government decision making.

Bloomberg reports that Trump could sign the directive sometime this week.

The order would reverse some of the restrictions based on the environment former President Barack Obama put in place, which, for example, slowed down the approval for the Keystone XL pipeline. Trump's order would erase climate change from environmental reviews.

Tom Pyle, president of the conservative advocacy group American Energy Alliance, looks forward to Trump's directive.

"President Obama created such a labyrinth of rules and orders and regulations to cement his agenda across practically every agency," Pyle told Bloomberg. "It was designed to put into the mission of the agencies climate change first and make the rest of their mission second.

"This was a constraint deliberately set up by the previous administration to make it difficult to utilize coal, oil, and natural gas."

Environmentalists claim Trump's order will put the environment, and ultimately humans, at risk.

The proposal "puts our country, our communities and our people at great risk," Paul Getsos, a national coordinator of the People's Climate Movement, told Bloomberg.

A recent report, meanwhile, claimed there is a divide within the White House on whether or not to withdraw the United States from the 2015 Paris climate agreement.
