A Matter Of Wildlife And Death

Last Monday, President Trump signed H.J. Res. 69, a joint House/Senate resolution that nullifies a Fish and Wildlife Service rule published last year. The overturned rule banned “predator control” on or near federal wildlife refuges in Alaska unless, per the Fish and Wildlife Service, “it is determined necessary to meet refuge purposes; is consistent with Federal laws and policy; and is based on sound science in response to a conservation concern.”Right off the bat, any rule mentioning “sound science” is in trouble under a Trump administration. Add intense opposition from the National Rifle Association, and it’s amazing that it took Congress and Trump this long to attack it.So what kinds of practices will the Trump administration now allow on our federal wildlife refuges? Activities that include shooting or trapping wolves while in their dens with pups, killing bear cubs or mothers with cubs, hunting for grizzly bears from airplanes, baiting grizzly bears with food, and trapping bears with cruel leg-hold traps or wire snares.Despite its publicity stunts, this administration doesn’t truly care about conservation. It doesn’t believe wildlife refuges should be managed to protect species or to maintain biodiversity. It’s all about ensuring a maximum yield of prey species like elk, moose, and caribou for the real apex predator: humans. So if having more elk requires killing wolf pups in their dens, then so be it.To be clear, the Obama administration’s Fish and Wildlife Service rule (which Trump revoked) never tried to stop all hunting […]

Repeal And Disgrace

After botching last week’s attempt to take away Americans’ health insurance, Donald Trump dusted himself off yesterday and launched an all-out attack on clean air, clean water, clean energy, public lands, and our climate. Typically, the results are disgraceful, irresponsible, and of dubious legality. Things actually got started last Friday when the Trump State Department approved a permit for the Keystone XL pipeline (a terrible decision, but not the end of that fight). Then at the EPA this afternoon, Trump unveiled an executive order aimed at repealing President Obama’s Climate Action Plan and the EPA’s Clean Power Plan. To do that, he’s directing federal agencies to reconsider the mandate to cut emissions from coal-fired power plants, end the moratorium on new coal leases on federal lands, cancel new standards governing methane pollution from oil and gas operations, and throw out any consideration of how carbon pollution harms public health and our economy.

Now Under Attack, EPA’s Work On Climate Change Has Been Going On For Decades

By Greg Dotson, University of Oregon The Trump administration intends to roll back two pillars of the Obama administration’s climate policy – regulations to limit carbon emissions from vehicles and power plants. Under President Obama, the Environmental Protection Agency was central to these regulations. […]

There’s a lot more oil to keep in the ground all of a sudden.

Mustafa Ali helped to start the EPA’s environmental justice office and its environmental equity office in the 1990s. For nearly 25 years, he advocated for poor and minority neighborhoods stricken by pollution. As a senior adviser and assistant associate administrator, Ali served under both Democratic and Republican presidents — but not under President Donald Trump.

His departure comes amid news that the Trump administration plans to scrap the agency’s environmental justice work. The administration’s proposed federal budget would slash the EPA’s $8 billion budget by a quarter and eliminate numerous programs, including Ali’s office.

The Office of Environmental Justice gives small grants to disadvantaged communities, a life-saving program that Trump’s budget proposal could soon make disappear.

Ali played a role in President Obama’s last major EPA initiative, the EJ 2020 action agenda, a four-year plan to tackle lead poisoning, air pollution, and other problems. He now joins Hip Hop Caucus, a civil rights nonprofit that nurtures grassroots activism through hip-hop music, as a senior vice president.

In his letter of resignation, Ali asked the agency’s new administrator, Scott Pruitt, to listen to poor and non-white people and “value their lives.” Let’s see if Pruitt listens.
