Please join us on this Saturday April 22 from 11:00-12:00 in front of the New Courthouse building going up— to be in solidarity with the thousands of people who are traveling to D.C. to be in the Scientists’ march……..Below, I copied some rulings of our new director of the EPA…scarey.
I have signs, but feel free to make your own signs also.
See you, I hope.
In March, Pruitt told CNBC that he “would not agree that it’s (Co2) a primary contributor to the global warming that we see”. The EPA’s scientific integrity policy demands that staff accurately represent scientific findings. The agency’s own website, in common with almost all climate scientists, states that CO2 is the “primary greenhouse gas that is contributing to recent climate change”.
The EPA has been targeted by the Trump administration for stringent budget cuts. The agency has drawn up a plan that would lay off 25% of its employees and scrap 56 programs, including pesticide safety, lead toxicity and environmental justice. There would be new funding, however, for a 24-hour security detail for Pruitt. (I HAVE COPIED MOST OF THIS LAST PARAGRAPH FROM A LONG ARTICLE DESCRIBING PRUITT’S HOPES AND THOUGHTS.)
Hope to see you at the corner.
