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. […]

Michigan Ends Program For Victims Of Flint Water Crisis Despite Backlash

PHOTOS BY BRITTANY GREESON, THE GROUNDTRUTH PROJECTResidents of Flint, Michigan, are no longer receiving a government credit that covered nearly two-thirds of their water bill for the last year. State officials say they’re cutting the program because Flint’s water no longer exceeds federal lead limits – even though they’re still recommending that residents use a filter on their taps.State officials say this is a precaution, in case the water quality is disrupted while the city replaces its lead water pipes. But critics, including Flint City Mayor Karen Weaver, say the government credit should continue until the state says no filter is needed.It’s literally killing us to live this and it’s going on its second year now… I’m living a low standard life. This is not a third world country.Flint’s water supply became contaminated with lead after the city switched its water supply in 2014. More than 100,000 residents, including at least 6,000 children were exposed to high levels of lead, which causes health problems in adults, but can have developmental effects – including permanent intellectual disabilities – in children.GroundTruth’s Brittany Greeson documented the water crisis beginning in 2015, before a state of emergency was declared. Here are six moments to look back on as the controversy continues:Danny Moilanen, the 30-year-old owner of Vehicle City Tacos in Flint, Michigan, discusses what city must look like to the outside world in September 2016.“The water crisis obviously has been something that’s affected every business and everyone because there is a negative perception of Flint now … We are just a textbook case of white flight, where people left for the suburbs and drained this community of resources, and I think my whole business is a sense of dedication and a love for the city. I want to be here. […]

Scientists aren’t just marching, they’re running for office.

The industry is growing so fast it could become the largest source of renewable energy on both sides of the Atlantic.

In America, wind power won the top spot for installed generating capacity (putting it ahead of hydroelectric power), according to a new industry report. And in the E.U., wind capacity grew by 8 percent last year, surpassing coal. That puts wind second only to natural gas across the pond.

In the next three years, wind could account for 10 percent of American electricity, Tom Kiernan, CEO of the American Wind Energy Association, said in a press release. The industry already employs over 100,000 Americans.

In Europe, wind has hit the 10.4 percent mark, and employs more than 300,000 people, according to an association for wind energy in Europe. Germany, France, the Netherlands, Finland, Ireland, and Lithuania lead the way for European wind growth. In the U.S., Texas is the windy frontier.

“Low-cost, homegrown wind energy,” Kiernan added in the release, “is something we can all agree on.”
