Trump’s #EPA stands for
Effectively Polluting Anything

A new attack on the Endangered Species Act is the latest in Trump’s efforts to murder every living being.

Please sign the prewritten letter to your MOC from the @SierraClub below.

It was announced last month that Trump...
proposes creating species-specific protection plans, which will make it more difficult to protect threatened species.

This would also handcuff administrators trying to “consider the impacts of global climate change when deciding whether to list a species.”
It doesn’t end here though. Below is just a partial tally of Trump’s damage to date:

Withdrew from the Paris climate agreement.

Permitted Dakota Access Pipeline.

(Sadly, the list continues...)

TRUMP LIFTS BAN ON HARMFUL PESTICIDE

A ban on the pesticide chlorpyrifos was lifted on Thursday by the EPA.

#Chlorpyrifos is an insecticide known to permanently harm an unborn fetus and cause irreversible brain damage in the womb.

google.com/amp/s/www.forb…
In August 2018, the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a ban on Chlorpyrifos.

EPA Response:

“EPA spokesman Michael Abboud said that the agency is reviewing the court decision. He also questioned data from [CCCEH] regarding the health effects of chlorpyrifos.”
“Even low to moderate levels of exposure to the insecticide chlorpyrifos during pregnancy may lead to long-term, potentially irreversible changes in the brain structure of the child.”

The Obama @EPA issued a rule under the #CleanAirAct to fight climate change by cutting carbon emissions from new power plants. Now, in a hand-out to polluters, @realDonaldTrump’s EPA is trying to swap in something much weaker.
And in the process, they’re ignoring big changes in the market for carbon capture technology, including new bipartisan incentives I fought to pass into law last year.
This Trump proposal is another example of fossil fuel interests capturing the #EPA and tearing down important environmental protections. Read my comment to the EPA: whitehouse.senate.gov/news/release/w…

@Ocasio2018 We keep reading about how the extreme weather of 2017 is the "new normal" thanks to global warming — even if the weather in question is frigid air. But the data don't show any trend in extreme weather events in the U.S. for decades. Science, anyone?
investors.com/politics/edito…
@Ocasio2018 A year ago, thousands of scientists issued a terrifying "second notice" to mankind about how we will destroy the planet unless we take "urgent" action.
If this warning is as reliable as the first notice they issued in 1992, we have nothing to worry about.
investors.com/politics/edito…
@Ocasio2018 In the U.S. at least, air pollution is down since 1992 for every single pollutant the EPA measures. And our CO2 emissions are down since the mid-1990s, yet #ClimateCatastrophists claim NONE of that improvement has slowed global, or U.S. #ClimateChange.

"Trump’s hostility to the #EPA and his devotion to wealthy fossil fuel interests have been so intense that it would be shocking if he borrowed a page from Reagan’s successful playbook."

theconversation.com/what-next-for-…
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump pledged to abolish the agency “in almost every form.”

He has since abandoned this promise, while supporting Pruitt’s efforts to destroy EPA from within.
Now the agency is at a crossroads, and the president has a chance to change direction.

.@EPAScottPruitt just announced an all-out assault on how the #EPA can use #scientific data. This could paralyze the EPA — we need to fight back. #WhiteHouse tried to bury a chemicals report that has major implications for our #health

Pruitt's new policy proposal restricting #science is his most destructive action yet This "restricting science" rule censors the #science that we can use, in favor to Big #Polluters limiting the data that links their industries to deadly #health impacts.
The clock is ticking, will you add your name today?

The #TrumpAdministration is actively trying to bury science that could have major effects on our #health. Fight back — sign the petition to stop Pruitt's censorship of science

Let's start here: Dan Rather does a good job summarizing the Sinclair propaganda facet of Trump's authoritarian regime.
Rump's authoritarian behavior includes subverting democracy, failure to be transparent, failure to be accountable, nepotism, cronyism, and many dimensions of financial corruption.
Trump's authoritarianism includes thwarting the will of congress, obstructing the protection of the environment, and putting property & people & planet at unprecedented risk.

Gina McCarthy hooked her buddies up at Harvard with $45 million in grants, for an alleged independent study but it was in close contact with them the whole time but all we’re going to hear about is a $43k sound booth in a government office🙄 #ScottPruitt #Hypocrisy

Among members of the White House Cabinet, no agency head has done more to follow the president’s lead in draining the swamp than Scott Pruitt. Make no mistake, that’s why the left & its allies are working overtime to smear him. thehill.com/opinion/white-… #DrainTheSwamp #TeaParty
After 8 years under Obama, Americans were fed up with being ordered around by liberal elites in a distant capital city, and by bureaucrats who put in place job-killing regulations. #DrainTheSwamp #TeaParty
.@POTUS has reversed that. He has led the way on draining the swamp, with a WH directive to agencies to cut 2 regs for every new reg proposed, with tax reforms, and by removing the US from the unfair and ineffective Paris climate accord. #DrainTheSwamp
