Say Good Bye To The EPA

Almost daily we hear some story of how Trump, our Supreme Leader, is destroying the EPA and in turn destroying our fragile environment.

Let’s be honest Trump is doing his best for his corporate handlers and does not seem to give one whit about the environment as long as their is money to be made.

Do you agree?

Good!

Then let me go a little further…….Trump is destroying the EPA but Obama had his part in it as well……yes that is Obama with an “O”……

It was a tumultuous tenure, productive by some accounts, lackluster by most, but one thing is for certain, Lisa Jackson’s short time as administrator at the Environmental Protection Agency was anything but dull. On December 27, 2012 the often-fiery Jackson announced she was not going to return for a second term, and it is surely not difficult to see why she’s fleeing her post.

Since President Obama was ushered into office in 2008, the EPA has consistently faced ridicule and criticism from corporate polluters and their greedy allies in Washington. On virtually every occasion Obama refused to side with Jackson’s more rationale, often science-based positions, whether it was cleaning up the air or forcing the natural resource industries to abide by existing regulations. Ultimately, the EPA is only as formidable as the White House allows it to be, and on Obama’s watch the agency has not received the support it has desired or deserved.

Granted the EPA would have been a target for Trump but to leave out Obama’s part is just outright disingenuous.

The destruction will be complete if Trump gets a second term…..and the damage will not be repaired for many years….if ever.

Can the country afford to lose our fragile environment?

And where is the Green New Deal ….with respect to the EPA?

Parts of the Green New Deal……

Achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions through a fair and just transition for all communities and workers

Secure for all people of the United States for generations to come: clean air and water; climate and community resiliency; healthy food; access to nature; and a sustainable environment

How will these parts be policed and instituted?

Questions need answers!

  1. Most governments only pay lip service to environmental issues. Big business donations carry the weight behind the scenes, and always will. And everyday issues like using cars are laughable. We are urged to use buses, share cars, or walk, yet all the leading politicians go everywhere in fleets of powerful automobiles, and fly around daily in helicopters, private jets, or commercial aircraft. It seems that it is only ‘pollution’ when ordinary people are doing it.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. “Achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions through a fair and just transition for all communities and workers”

    I can’t imagine how this is possible even if we went back to 200 years ago technology. Back then locomotives and steamships burned coal as did people in their homes world wide. We would have to mothball all air , land and sea military transportation.

      1. I understand denying the science…you go with who pays you to do their bidding….but eventually it will be too late and then we can say…told you so ….as we gasp for breath….chuq

  3. Mayors and governors seem to be doing some of the things to protect the environment that the feds are not doing.

    Not sure if anyone within or outside the US is doing enough.
