EPA Gone?

Coming to the end of March, and what a month it has been. So many different things going on here locally and globally. I am on the edge of my seat to see what will come next. I mean really, insulting a Congresswoman about her hair? Did you hear what she was talking about? The President just signed a bill that will eliminate the EPA December 2018. I can now see why they didn’t take away “Obamacare”, because we will all need it when the toxic emissions choke us all to death. How can this even be possible?

Does this make sense? Doesn’t anyone in the 115th Congress understand the importance of the EPA? The gentleman put in charge by the President, Edward Scott Pruitt, has had 13 lawsuits against the EPA in the past, and now it will could be gone and so will all the reasons he had lawsuits. He does not believe the 2013 report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change  that states “ The probability of Carbon Dioxide causing global warming was at least 95%.” The Clean Power Plan put forth by President Obama which helps to regulate emissions of the gas will be stopped. Won’t eliminating an entire agency also eliminate thousands of jobs?

Would it make more sense to start bridging the gap of new renewable energy and ending use of fossil fuel? There are many jobs to be had and created from such proposals. The environment should be a high priority of everyone’s list. It affects everyone! Please if you do not agree with this bill contact your local congressperson and representatives and tell them NO. You do not want H.R. 861 to pass.
