Help Fight President Trump’s Attack on Food, Farms, and Kids

Image result for environmental protection“President Trump’s proposed budget is a huge threat to proven food and farm programs that support public health, help farmers, and keep farm pollution out of our drinking water. Slashing the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly food stamps) would lead to hunger and suffering for millions of Americans. Cuts to research and conservation programs would deny farmers the science they need to maintain profitability while adapting to the harsh realities of a changing climate, and would leave our water more at risk from farm pollution.” – Union of Concerned Scientists

EPA Grants Electric Utilities A Break From Irma

“The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) granted all Florida power plants a “no action assurance” on Monday as the state tries to turn the lights back on post-Hurricane Irma.”

The waiver, given at the request of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and effective through Sept. 26, allows the utilities “to operate without meeting all pollution controls in order to maintain the supply of electricity to customers and critical facilities across the state as a result of Hurricane Irma,” EPA said. – Eco Watch
