10 Of The Worst Cuts In President Trump’s Budget

Donald Trump released his budget late Monday and, as expected, its massive cuts target life-saving public health and environmental programs and standards. Once again, we’re seeing Trump put polluters ahead of the safety our families. This budget will make our communities sick while lining the pockets of the fossil fuel industry. This budget’s severe cuts single out our clean air and water and our attempts to fight climate disruption. It’s a lot to dig through, so I narrowed it down to some of the worst of the worst. […]

States Are Taking Note of Nuclear Energy’s Carbon Free Benefits

As a former administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, I care deeply that progress continue to be made in the fight against climate change – and policymakers in states across the country are stepping up to do just that. I also know the resolve it requires to drive meaningful change in how we develop and use energy, which is the key factor in combatting climate change. Ultimately, there is no silver bullet that will solve climate change. Rather, we have to pursue an array of promising solutions. To that end, I have always been a strong proponent of renewable sources of energy. It is increasingly clear that clean power sources such as wind and solar have an important role to play in our energy infrastructure. However, in our menu of clean energy options, nuclear energy and its carbon free output often is overlooked for its contributions in the fight against climate change. I have always been a proud environmentalist, but I didn’t always support nuclear energy. […]

Trump wants to slash money for food and farming.

The administration’s proposed $4.1 trillion budget cuts food stamps by 25 percent, which would boot some 10 million people off the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). It also chops crop insurance subsidies by 36 percent while wringing 21 percent out of the Agriculture Department’s budget by getting rid of rural economic development and conservation programs.

After the release of the President Trump’s budget on Tuesday, a diverse array of urban and rural advocates, including Republicans, were united in opposition. Here’s a sampling of what they are saying:

The anti-poverty campaigner: “Cutting essential, effective anti-poverty programs like Medicaid and SNAP will exacerbate inequality, poverty and despair.” — Billy Shore, founder of Share Our Strength, a nonprofit working to end childhood hunger.

The farmer’s group: “By shredding our farm safety net, slashing critical agricultural research and conservation initiatives, and hobbling our access to foreign markets, this budget is a blueprint for how to make already difficult times in rural America even worse.” — Ron Moore, American Soy Association president and a soybean farmer in Illinois.

The Senate power broker: “The proposed cuts to important farm and family safety net programs, including crop insurance and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, are harsh and short sighted.” — Debbie Stabenow, Democratic senator from Michigan, and the person you need to know to get any farm bill passed.

Add all this up and it means that this part of the budget has little chance of getting past Congress. Funding for food and farm programs has always brought together unusual bedfellows. In this partisan era, it’s a rare area of bipartisan agreement.

States And Cities Can Save The Paris Pact

There are influential, bipartisan and surprising allies urging President Donald Trump to keep the United States in the Paris climate agreement. They include some of the world’s biggest fossil energy companies, members of both parties in Congress, CEOs, governors, veterans, and farmers.But with Trump laying waste to President Obama’s climate policies, with his emasculation of the EPA and his plans to starve federal climate science, it is unclear what the U.S. government could add to the success of the Paris accord.In my previous post, I offered one idea to break the impasse between Trump’s advisors on whether the U.S. should remain in or pull out of the Paris agreement. First, the president would take a blood oath not to interfere with state and local climate action. Second, he would aggregate emission reduction commitments from states, cities and corporations to give substance to the U.S. role in the accord. Third, he would faithfully enforce any federal climate policies approved by Congress or upheld by the courts.On the first point, Trump already says he supports state rights. He reportedly told governors earlier this year that he wants states to craft their own policies — including environmental rules — without interference from the federal government.A test of his sincerity is on the horizon regarding fuel-efficiency standards for vehicles.

Let’s Change The Conversation From Climate Change To ‘Shared Benefits’

Last September, I emailed President Obama. His response helped me to focus on what matters. He wrote,“Progress doesn’t come easily, and it hasn’t always followed a straight line. Keeping our world’s air, water, and land clean and safe takes work from all of us, and voices like yours are sparking the conversations that will help us get to where we need to be. I will continue pushing to protect the environment as long as I am President and beyond, and I encourage you to stay engaged as well.”But I worry that adults will never agree on climate change. The issue has become too political. The words “climate change” have even been scrubbed from government websites […]
