Were you aware that 95 (ninety-five!) rules designed to protect the environment — your environment — have been or are being rolled back by Trump?
It’s one thing to not believe in global warming or to care more about your pocketbook than your own fresh air and clean water, but to deliberately tear down the protections established by those who do care is beyond disgusting.
In “95 Environmental Rules Being Rolled Back Under Trump,” the New York Times lists all the protections at risk, categorizes them, breaks them down by current status, and provides links for more extensive discussions of each: Air pollution and emissions, Drilling and extraction, Infrastructure and planning, Animals, Toxic substances and safety, Water pollution, and Other. It’s a wonder the man has found time to do anything other than systematically wreck our environment.
If you question what’s at stake, just take a deep breath or a drink of water from the tap. Or look up at the sky above you.
Whether you read the Times story in depth or just scan the list, it will make you sick. Or should.
