The Administration sounds some piercing new alarm every day, making it hard to separate the momentarily disturbing from the truly damaging. But this is essential — especially for the environment. While Trump has flip-flopped on some of his signature issues, he has been totally consistent about protections for public health, clean air and clean water: He wants to dismantle them.

1. Hired Scott Pruitt
Trump’s choice to lead the Environmental Protection Agency built his career by attacking the agency and its clean air and water rules. Pruitt is beginning to staff the EPA with Beltway insiders who have made their living lobbying for weaker pollution rules on behalf of the industry. For example, it has been widely reported that Andrew Wheeler may be named Pruitt’s top deputy. Wheeler is now a lobbyist for Murray Energy, a coal-mining conglomerate that is demanding an end to the rule that limits mercury pollution.
In fact, a recent analysis by Columbia University Law School showed that more than one quarter of the Administration’s appointees so far to environmental, energy, and natural resource management agencies have close ties to the fossil-fuel industry. The likely result: Thousands of decisions over the next four years made by those more interested in protecting polluters than public health. That will leave a toxic legacy of more disease and premature death.

2. Undermined chemical safety
Last year, a Congress overwhelmingly passed the bipartisan Lautenberg Act, a new chemical safety law that, after four decades of a broken system flooding our stores and homes with dangerous or untested chemicals, finally constructed a strong chemical safety net.
But now the EPA has to finish writing the rules to implement it. For that, Pruitt has chosen Nancy Beck, an insider straight from the main chemical industry trade association who has even within the last few weeks lobbied the agency on these very rules. If the new rules give the industry everything it wants, we’ll have blown a historic chance to restore public trust and market confidence in the products consumers buy for household use, everything from paints to baby clothes to cleaning products. Our health and that of our environment would continue to be at risk — and undoing the damage would take years.

3. Slashed the federal budget
The Administration’s budget proposal would cut the EPA by almost a third — more than any other agency, even though its budget is tiny. Out of every $10 the federal government spends, only two cents go to the EPA. These cuts don’t really save money. They’re part an ideological crusade that the public doesn’t support.
If the EPA budget is cut this way, the loss of experts and institutional knowledge will reverberate for years. Detailed plans obtained by the Washington Post show that Trump and Pruitt want to cut a quarter of the workforce and abolish 56 programs with impacts from the Chesapeake Bay to Puget Sound. Such reductions would cripple the agency’s ability to protect clean air and water. Together, this will lead to more asthma attacks, more health problems for the elderly and a more dangerous future.

4. Rolled back health protections from dirty energy
Pruitt is now trying to gut many of the same the rules and safeguards he sued to stop as Oklahoma’s attorney general. They limit the amount of arsenic and acid gases power plants can emit, reduce smog that causes respiratory problems and cut carbon pollution that causes climate change.
He has signaled hostility to the Mercury and Air Toxics Rule, despite the fact that nearly all power plants are in compliance. The EPA chief and Trump are also planning to withdraw the Clean Power Plan, America’s first limits on carbon pollution from power plants, without any strategy for how to replace it.
And Trump and Pruitt are risking all this for the sake of putting the American energy industry farther behind: The energy market is moving toward cleaner energy, but slowing that process means losing clean tech jobs to other countries and a bigger cleanup for our children’s generation.

And yet he has also: Fueled environmental activism
This fifth item is the positive legacy of the Trump Administration: Americans who used to take clean air and water for granted are waking up to the danger. Membership in environmental groups is skyrocketing — the biggest question we get these days is, “What can I do?” — as women and men from all walks of life reclaim environmentalism as a mainstream American value. On Saturday, thousands will take to the streets in Washington, D.C., and other cities for the People’s Climate March.Just as a blossoming environmental awareness in the early 1970s led to some of the bedrock laws we rely on today, I believe the great awakening of 2017 will echo for years to come. If we work together and make our voices heard, we can limit the worst of the damage Trump intends to inflict.

Texas and Louisiana are only a U.S. problem. How about the rest of the world that we are destroying with the Trump wrecking crew?

Texas isn’t alone–South Asia is also suffering the horrors of climate change

Millions have been displaced and more than a thousand people have died across Nepal, India, and Bangladesh as floods rage.

While Texas battles one of the worst storms in U.S. history, South Asia is also grappling with the devastating impact of climate change—more than a thousand people have died this summer as brutal rains pound the region, with no sign of relief in sight.

Hurricane Harvey, which has wrought devastation across the Texas Gulf Coast and killed at least 19 people, has captivated national attention. But thousands of miles away, another tragic scenario is playing out across vulnerable areas in India, Nepal, and Bangladesh. Monsoon rains typically begin in the region around June and continue until September, when they slowly abate. But the past few months have brought an onslaught of rain so severe that even flood-plagued South Asia has buckled under the weight.


Heavy rains have led to widespread flooding and landslides, submerging areas with minimal infrastructure and limited financial resources. In addition to the deaths of around 1,200 people, approximately 41 million have been displaced over the past few months. That situation is alarming aid officials, who say the issue is spiraling into an unprecedented disaster.

“This is the severest flooding in a number of years,” Francis Markus, a spokesman for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, told the New York Times.

While flooding is common in the region, climate change has spurred dramatic weather patterns, greatly exacerbating the damage. As sea temperatures warm, moisture increases, a dynamic also at play in the record-setting rainfall in Texas. Harvey, which hit the state as a Category 4 hurricane, intensified in large part because of the Gulf of Mexico’s warming waters. The air’s ability to hold the moisture, meanwhile, allowed for it to return to the coast after going back out to sea. In South Asia, warming waters and saturated air were intensified largely by atmospheric shifts.

Professor Hawking has been a vocal critic of Donald Trump (describing him as a ‘demagogue’), and in particular has criticised Trump’s stance on climate change.

In this regard, he goes further than many others in how he believes Trump’s policies could leave us.

Hawking said, ‘Trump’s action could push the Earth over the brink, to become like Venus, with a temperature of two hundred and fifty degrees, and raining sulphuric acid.

‘Climate change is one of the great dangers we face, and it’s one we can prevent if we act now.'

If a new president is elected in 2020, he or she could keep the United States in the Paris Climate Agreement, former Vice President Al Gore on Saturday suggested.

“A new president could simply give 30 days notice, and the United States is back in the agreement,” Gore, the 2000 Democratic presidential nominee, said during an appearance at the United Nations Climate Change Conference [COP23] in Bonn, Germany, reports The Hill.

So the more you drag trump in here, the worse it gets. Why do that?



Until we get him and his wrecking crew out of office the worst it gets for mother earth. They need to all be dragged out. Who will speak for her if we do not? Who will do anything if we do nothing? I do my spiritual duties in life as much as possible. Including recycling religiously, picking up garbage and cans trying to drive less and educating others on what is happening to our planet and living closer to nature.  For those owning property we can plant trees. We can cut down on having kids or have none like i have chosen since humans are an invasive species. We can support conservation of our parks and forests.

The people we have in office not only have no regard for this planet but are working against its survival with no remorse what so ever. This is a spiritual issue regarding the stewardship of earth.  That is our job as God is its owner. We have a responsibility here on this planet for its welfare and survival and taking care of it. Not to molest and destroy it for future generations as our present leaders prescribe.

The man accused of detonating an explosive in the New York City subway system wrote on Facebook the morning of his alleged attack, “Trump you failed to protect your nation," according to the federal complaint against him.

Trump and his henchmen have failed to protect mother earth but are bent on destroying it! There is no man i know of and his henchmen in the history of mankind more responsible for the destruction of our earth. Make our planet great again...get rid of Trump and his henchmen. They should be tried and convicted for crimes against humanity. When there is insanity in our leadership it will only increase in reflection by public reaction.

If you want him out of office posting here will not accomplish that one bit.

You should instead direct your efforts to forums that are made just for that. I posted a link to one, but there are many.

You are polluting this forum.

I think you have trump on your mind so much, you're starting to become like him. Pointing fingers at everyone else.

Maybe you 2 should get a room.
