Thousands of Sites in U.S. Have Won Permission to Bypass Environmental Rules


Thousands Allowed to Bypass Environmental Rules

Health Editor’s Note: As if ignoring the coronavirus which has long since reached pandemic proportions was not enough of an assault on the American people, the Trump administration has gone a long way toward taking the U.S. back into the dark ages of pollution.

After being pressured by gas and oil industries, who lied and said that social distancing and lockdowns made it hard to comply with pollution rules, the end result has been approval for less monitoring of the environment at some Texas refineries, a Kentucky army depot dismantling warheads armed with nerve gas, manure piling up and lack of disposal of livestock carcasses at mega farms in Iowa and Minnesota, and other issues with sewage and chemical plants, oilfields, smokestacks, and medical waste shipments. 

At a time when we are begin assaulted physically, emotionally, and economically with the COVID-19 pandemic and all that it has brought with it, we cannot afford to back slide and allow efforts to keep pollution at bay to fall by the wayside.   

Waivers were granted to over 3,000 companies (take a look at some of the companies that are listed in this article and note if they are in your state)…3,000 companies who will not have a watch dog and who will go about business as usual to attain the most profit imaginable at the expense of the earth and eventually human lives…..Carol
