So I joined a few hundred others last week to make our joint statement on how we feel about climate change. At the same time, all of the data about climate change was removed from the Environment Protection Agency’s website, apparently as a way to “reflect the approach of new leadership,” in other words, Trump.
But why was I specifically there? I’m not happy about the new policies vis-à-vis what the greenhouse gas emissions at coal-fired power plants will do. The proposed EPA budget cuts make me particularly nervous. How crazy is it that they plan to cut the budget from $300million to $10 million that is used to fight against water pollution issues in the largest group of freshwater lakes in the world?
This just is not acceptable. I sure hope our protest will not fall on deaf ears.
