President Trump’s administration is announcing plans to undo an Obama-era policy that had expanded federal oversight of the country’s waterways and shallow wetlands.
WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump’s administration is announcing plans to undo an Obama-era policy that expanded federal oversight of the country’s waterways, while leaving further changes to clean-water rules up to a later overhaul.
The decision, expected to be announced by the Environmental Protection Agency Thursday afternoon, is the latest lurch toward new clean-water regulations after almost two decades of uncertainty about federal authority over the country’s bays, rivers and streams, especially smaller seasonal tributaries...Read more: The Wall Street Journal
At this point the EPA could at least be honest and rename itself the EDA, or Environmental Destruction Agency. That's so trumps donors can pollute our water wsys This is bad news for anyone who drinks water, swims, hunts, fishes, or has a business related to those. Bad idea. I don't understand why people would vote for a man who feels that it is not important to protect the water that we all drink to stay alive.
Trumps administration? Its just one bumbling idiot at the top!!! His family needs to get him some mental help!!! But they are scared of course - when a Dem sits in the Oval office go back and undo everything King Don has done - After SenRickScott slashed funding for Florida’s water management districts, and septic tank reform was killed, we had toxic algae blooms that killed marine life all the way around the state and made our beaches unvisitable. This will not be an improvement for Florida’s Water.
Smh I think having an overarching body look after clean water is good. Otherwise, each county/city will have their own, just like recycling, very confusing. AMERIKKKA is for sale. GOP wants to kill Americans so billionaires can squeeze more money for themselves.
Trump expected to roll back Obama-era clean water regulationsThe EPA proposed replacing the 2015 water rule in December following an executive order from President Donald Trump, who has criticized the regulations for curbing the rights of farmers, developers and landowners. Why? Just pure evil! Who benefits from this?
WHO. WILL. STOP. THIS. MAN ?
Beekeepers Confront the E.P.A. Over PesticidesLeaders in the beekeeping industry have sued the environmental agency over its approval of the use of a pesticide that has harmed colonies. If i understand correctly, if the bees die, we could all die. If this is incorrect, please let me know why, I'm interested in learning how this will impact us all. Wait, don't you mean the pesticide took aim at the bees? Why are they suing the EPA instead of the pesticide?
EPA to Phase Out Chemical Testing on MammalsThe EPA has long required that new chemicals be tested on a variety of animals -- including rats, dogs, birds and fish -- to assess their toxicity. The percentage of tests that involve mammals was not immediately available from the EPA. No need to rush into it. Why is it taking so long? Why wasn't it done sooner? Why wait till then? why not end it now?
E.P.A. Says It Will Drastically Reduce Animal TestingThe Environmental Protection Agency said that it would move away from requiring the testing of potentially harmful chemicals on animals They'll just approve them directly But it’s OK to poison them at home so where’s the humanity?
Trump (falsely) thinks he's found proof of Obama failing to be 'great'Obama didn't hand Trump dozens of judicial vacancies, including a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court; Mitch McConnell did. MaddowBlog ... it's filed with , 'a lot of good people down in Hawaii and they are finding out all kinds of stuff about his birth certificate..' MaddowBlog Do something useful like help with the trafficking of Native Americans. MaddowBlog Trump suffers from severe Obama envy (among other things).
Obama security adviser says Bolton successor will struggle, Trump ignores 'facts, history, analysis''We have a president who seems to not want to hear anything other than 'yes,'' Susan Rice told MSNBC. Does Bolton now agrees who is Rex Tillerson? The successor will have to breathe underwater with a straw. Job open to all masochists. Perhaps he is just tired of continuing the cycle Bolton uses for job security and self importance. Sad to say..but promoting these endlesss wars gets advisors paid. And some people care more about the dollar than the lives of the people and families who serve to protect us.
