SoCal Business Leaders Send Open Letter To EPA Chief Warning Against Rollback Of Environmental Regulations

Today the Los Angeles Business Council sent an urgent warning to Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt that recent efforts to rollback climate change policies, including the Energy Star program, will damage our economy, slow job growth, and put the environment at risk. The letter was sent on behalf of the LABC’s 450 members who represent a cross-section of sectors including utilities, healthcare, real estate and finance. The full text of the letter is below: Dear Administrator Pruitt, On behalf of the Los Angeles Business Council, which represents over 450 influential businesses across virtually every industry, we urge you to stop the rollback of key environmental regulations. As business leaders, we have a unique perspective on how environmental regulations have not only improved our citizens’ quality of life, but significantly grown our local economy. We share the sentiment of the recently sent letter to President Trump by the Mayors National Climate Action Agenda, co-founded by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, opposing recent actions to roll back the Clean Power Plan, reduce vehicle fuel efficiency standards, and propose budget cuts to the EPA and critical programs such as Energy Star. There is overwhelming evidence showing that investment in clean energy and other environmentally-friendly initiatives spur job growth: Over 500,000 Californians are now employed by the clean energy industry, where wages are higher than average, and well-paying, entry-level blue collar jobs are a reality. Overall, renewable energy has the potential to be cleaner, safer, and more cost-efficient than traditional fossil fuels. As a group devoted to promoting business interests in the Los Angeles region, we respectfully request that you do not overlook the economic benefits of policies that incentivize renewable energy use and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. These impacts reverberate across many industries: they reduce costs in the long-term, encourage research and development in job-producing industries, and save millions in public health costs. We are especially concerned about the rollback of the Energy Star program. […]

Rustic modern tiny house shows another clever way to do the stairs

For the first time ever, people have eaten chicken without killing a chicken.

A self-described “anonymous environmental activist collective” spelled out “NO MORE TIGERS, NO MORE WOODS” in six-foot-high letters at the Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

“It’s a protest piece against Trump’s administration’s handling of our environmental policies,” one of the activists told a local ABC affiliate, using a voice disguiser. “He’s been very aggressive in gutting a lot of the policies that we’ve had in place for a very long time. We felt it necessary to stand up and go take action against him.”

Plus the activists don’t like golf courses. “Tearing up the golf course felt justified in many ways,” one activist told the Washington Post. “Repurposing what was once a beautiful stretch of land into a playground for the privileged is an environmental crime in its own right.”

The Washington Post article originally called the action a “daring act of defiance.” Though accurate, the description irritated Eric Trump, the president’s second-oldest son:

The Post then changed its story to say the group “pulled off an elaborate act of vandalism.”

No comment from Tiger Woods, who has golfed with Donald Trump and said he plays pretty well for an old guy.

Squall – Sean Costello

SquallSean Costello Genre: Mysteries & Thrillers Publish Date: January 2, 2015 Publisher: Sean Costello Seller: Draft2Digital, LLC Bush pilot and family man Tom Stokes is about to face the worst day of his life. On a clear winter morning he sets out in his Cessna 180 to do some repairs on a remote hunt camp, leaving his five year old son and very pregnant wife snug in their beds. On the return trip, a squall forces him into an emergency landing and he winds up—quite literally—in the lap of petty criminal Dale Knight. Dale, now a fugitive from the law—and worse, from a merciless drug lord who just happens to be his brother—draws Tom into a web of mayhem and treachery that puts not only his life at risk, but the lives of his wife, son…and unborn child. SQUALL is a fast-paced, darkly-comic tale of murder and gang-style retribution that grabs the reader on page one and simply does not let go. PRAISE FOR COSTELLO’S PREVIOUS NOVELS HERE AFTER “Costello…keeps the action moving and the suspense ratcheted up tight.”     —Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail EDEN’S EYES “The best horror novel I’ve read since Stephen King’s own Pet Sematary. …Costello knows how to tantalize his readers, priming them for the horrors to come…”        —Rave Reviews THE CARTOONIST “A wonderful blend of horror, psychology and the power of suggestion that leaves you guessing right up to the very end!”       —The New Jersey Grapevine CAPTAIN QUAD “Sean Costello is one of the horror genre’s brightest new stars, and…Captain Quad will only enhance his position.”        —Other Realms […]

According to Pruitt: “I think there are some regulations that in the near-term need to be rolled back in a very aggressive way. And I think maybe next week you may be hearing about some of those.” Continuing, the Reuters piece reported: Pruitt added the EPA’s focus on combating climate change under former President Barack Obama had cost jobs and prevented economic growth, leading many Americans to want to see the EPA eliminated completely. “I think its justified,” he said. “I think people across this country look at the EPA much like they look at the IRS. I hope to be able to change that.” How can we respond to such a fundamental attack on environmental rules and on the EPA? How can we respond to the Trump Administration’s effort to deconstruct the EPA through budget cuts? Let’s go back to the basics: No one likes being told what to do. Watch New Yorkers at a crosswalk, ignoring the “don’t walk” sign and you’ll see what I mean. But we live in a more crowded, complex and interdependent world, and our health, safety and welfare depend on effective regulation. […]
