The USDA’s Senseless Obstacles To A More Humane ‘Organic’

Every day, millions of Americans visit their grocery stores, relying on a range of food labels – some more meaningful than others – to help them make healthy, humane, and cost-efficient purchases. One of these labels is “USDA Organic,” a certification that presumably represents humane farm animal welfare standards. But sadly, that assumption is untrue, and has been for years. What’s even more reprehensible is that the federal agency directly responsible for ensuring that farmed food products are truthfully labeled – the USDA – is now acting in direct opposition to that mission. Origins of the USDA “Organic” Label The USDA began regulating organic agriculture in 2000 with the creation of the National Organic Program. For years, the ASPCA and other animal welfare organizations have pushed to include meaningful animal welfare standards in the definition of organic – including minimum indoor and outdoor space requirements for chickens, required enrichment for certain species, and a prohibition on certain kinds of painful physical alterations like cattle tail docking. In January 2017, we celebrated when the USDA National Organic Program announced it would adopt a comprehensive set of federal regulations governing the treatment of animals on USDA Organic-certified farms, based on the recommendation of the National Organics Standards Board. This decision was influenced by tens of thousands of supportive comments from consumers, farmers, companies and public interest groups, all submitted during an official open comment period. The regulations were set to go into effect in March. Enter Politics When the new Administration postponed implementation of the organics rule to May, one could argue this was the consequence of a government in transition, including the late appointment of Sonny Perdue as Secretary of Agriculture.

Trump And Pruitt Attack EPA Clean Water Standard

If you like to swim, fish, or drink water, listen up. The Trump administration is coming for your clean water. Just a few days ago, Trump’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) took a first step toward trying to roll back standards for our biggest source of toxic water pollution: coal-fired power plants. This is the latest installment in EPA administrator and fossil fuel BFF Scott Pruitt’s “Back to Pollution” agenda, and it might be coming to the tap water near you. As our friend Pete Harrison at Waterkeeper Alliance put it, “This rollback gives a blank check to the power companies, and it directly threatens drinking water supplies across the country.” Coal-fired power plants are our biggest source of toxic water pollution, as they discharge very nasty and dangerous chemicals like lead, arsenic, and cadmium that are linked to a host of serious health problems. But the federal standards for that pollution were almost nonexistent and 30 years out of date, thanks to the political clout of the coal industry. A court ordered EPA to act, and the agency finalized updated standards in 2015, which went into effect in January 2016 […]

Bureau Of Land Management Puts Bankrupt Peabody Coal Banner On Website Home Page

Jettisoning the image of children gazing across scenic landscapes on public land, the Bureau of Land Management has replaced its website homepage banner with an old Peabody coal website image from the bankruptcy era of the coal titan, which has just emerged from its controversial bankruptcy plan.Talk about bad timing: The BLM is now the home of the “rock solid” company that went bankrupt—and a government promoter of Big Coal’s role in a growing health and humanitarian crisis and environmental ruin. Memo to BLM: Even Peabody Energy has ditched the photo, in its attempt to do a makeover of the company image.Considering the BLM mission to “sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations,” perhaps the federal agency should hold a contest for new homepage banner images more befitting of its new policy to re-open coal mining on public lands. Here are few examples, showcasing devastating strip mines, toxic discharges in streams and waterways, coal train accidents, and CO2 pollution from antiquated coal-fired plants. Other ideas could include black lung disease for coal miners, air pollution, the loss of farm and ranch lands, and the loss of pension and health plans for miners. — This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

A Soul-Sick, ‘Shock And Awe’ Budget

It was called, with typical Trumpian bombast, “America First: A Budget Blueprint to Make America Great Again.” It won’t make America great again. It reflects a hardness of the heart and a sickness of the spirit unworthy of the American people. Chances are the great leaders of this country’s history wouldn’t even recognize its vision of America. Trump’s Budget Director, former tea party Congressman Mick Mulvaney, described it as a “hard power budget.” It slashes spending on diplomacy and aid while jacking up the military’s already-overinflated coffers. But former president James Madison once said, “A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty.” This budget boosts spending on the largest military force in human history by $54 billion in a single year. “The core of my first budget blueprint is the rebuilding of our nation’s military without adding to our federal deficit,” Trump’s introduction reads. But the military hardly needs “rebuilding,” since Pentagon spending has consistently risen through times of war and peace. And if Trump were genuinely concerned about the federal deficit, he could raise taxes on the wealthy to pay for his military spending spree. He asks everyone else, including future generations, to sacrifice instead […]

Clean Cars, California, And Pruitt’s Breathtaking Hypocrisy

Right after he was confirmed, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt said he would achieve cleaner air through “cooperation between the States and EPA.” It was always a highly questionable claim, since Pruitt’s record of 14 lawsuits against clean air and water rules and lax record in Oklahoma suggested he really just wanted to allow companies to pollute without legal consequence. But reports by the Washington Post and New York Times indicate that Pruitt is showing his true intentions with alarming speed. Leaked information shows that the Trump administration intends to reverse the highly successful clean cars program, which cuts billions of tons of pollution and saves consumers money at the gas pump by gradually raising fleet-wide fuel efficiency standards to about 50 miles per gallon by 2025. The US Government estimates a total of $1.7 trillion in fuel cost savings for American families. At the request of the auto industry, the EPA clean car program was developed in partnership with and alignment with California and other states to provide investment certainty for the auto industry. What’s even more brazen, Pruitt intends to weaken EPA’s standards while also attacking California’s long-standing authorization to set its own more protective standards for clean air. His entire environmental philosophy was based on the idea that states knew best and the federal government should get out of the way. But it’s clear from his attack on states’ rights that is not the case. Pruitt clearly does not believe in the right of California to protect the health of its citizens from tailpipe pollution. […]
