Yes indeedy, the States are definitely leading, especially the Pacific Coast States. Until we remove this scumbag POTUS and his disgusting incompetent cabinet, we can do a lot to accelerate the changes we need relative to renewable energy adoption and EV adoption.

The fake EPA does nothing but the States don't want to poison their citizens.

Wow, good on NC for taking the initiative after Drumpf’s EPA has totally abdicated its responsibility to protect US citizens from environmental problems.

Mike83 | 2019年4月11日

I think the 3 Stooges had more class than these 3.

Yes these dumbasses personify stupid. They know nothing and frankly are an embarousment. I watched the idiot who had idiotic exchange with John Kerry.

@Mike83 could you repost your link, as it does not work for me.

Mike83 | 2019年4月13日

Tesla-David. It seems to no longer work for me either but did. Here is another one

Wow, reading articles like this about corrupt EPA officials makes me very sad. I have lots of friends who work for EPA and are principled and passionate about upholding EPA's mission to safeguard our environment. Disgusting political appointees who don't care about EPA and only want to undercut it and everything it does to protect the people. Reprehensible and disgusting. I hate these scumbags for their underhanded tactics. May they all rot in Hell.

The lawsuits against Monsanto on the use of Lasso, now banned weed killer, and Roundup continue to mount unabated. May they continue against this morally bankrupt company!

"Thursday's decision follows a series of legal setbacks for the company since it acquired Monsanto. Two juries in the U.S. have now ruled in favor of plaintiffs claiming that glyphosate, the active ingredient in the company's Roundup weedkiller, caused them to develop cancer. There are more than 10,000 similar lawsuits pending."

I despise Wheeler, scumbag head of EPA. More sleeze from him regarding climate change inaction! Only interested in speeding up oil pipelines and fossil fuel actions.

"Wheeler repeated claims that climate change is not the biggest environmental threat facing the world and shed some light on the agency's plans to help the Trump administration boost fossil fuel development."

As expected the EPA is suspect on facts favoring corporate paid research.

It appears that the EPA has lost any credibility.

Bayer is a German company and possibly could be taken to den Hague with EPA appointees.

Tesla-David | 2019年5月11日

I would love to see Bayer bankrupted for continuing to sell Roundup which should be taken off the market. Let the lawsuits continue until they are forced into removing this unsafe product. Taking them and EPA appointees to the Hague is a great idea.

Mike83 | 2019年5月11日
Mike83 | 2019年5月14日

Bayer shareholders are pissed. Does the EPA officials who say roundup is OK liable?

https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/14/business/bayer-roundup-verdict/index.html

andy.connor.e | 2019年5月14日

Everyone who says roundup is ok should be liable

Mike83 | 2019年5月14日

You are liable if that is your job to approve it's usage. If you lie to protect the manufacturer then you could be sued I think.

Mike83 | 2019年5月14日

Ignorance is not an excuse. The GOP and other fossil fuel funded politicians and appointees should be held accountable for their policies. They knew what they were doing but for money they sold out.

You would literally have to buy the most expensive plane ticket imaginable to spend $120k on 40 trips.

sabbia | 2019年5月17日

Andy. Are you protecting Pruitt? Is the implication of your post that Pruitt couldn't have spent that much money? The total travel during a ten month period was over $1,000,000, $124,000 of which was bilked out of taxpayers as part of Trump's swamp.

If you are protecting Pruitt, don't forget he installed a $43,000 telephone booth in his office in violation of spending laws. Not your paradigm of a law abiding public servant.

Pruitt got to be head of the EPA by having a track record of attacking climate change. Made a name for himself and then lived high on the hog at the public trough.

andy.connor.e | 2019年5月17日

Lol how do you extract that much meaning from what i just said. I have no obligation to respond/defend that.

mialink | 2019年5月18日

That average is just $3k a ticket. Fairly cheap for a standard business ticket US to Europe.

Mike83 | 2019年5月22日

Just read that Costco is to stop selling Roundup. The EPA can't force people to buy questionable products or beleive the Climate Crisis is a hoax. Too much evidence.

andy.connor.e | 2019年5月22日

wow thats awesome. but its pretty much too late for the planet when it comes to roundup

Mike83 | 2019年5月22日

Looks like the Coal lobby and Coal jobs are going away quickly.

Tesla-David | 2019年5月22日

Coal jobs are disappearing fast, as coal fired plants are closing. Too bad the backward Australians haven’t received the message, especially with the great barrier reef dying due to AGW and ocean acidification.

Mike83 | 2019年5月22日

What is it with the Ausies?

And this just happened.

This attorney has done some remarkable cases and will handle the Bayer Monsanto case.

Tesla-David | 2019年5月22日

interesting to see adds on TV now soliciting clients exposed to Round Up, for litigation compensation. May the lawsuits continue until they are bankrupted.

Mike83 | 2019年5月22日

The litigation by this attorney was also involved with the GM ignition switch deaths and the Oil spill that killed many and damaged fisheries. Sometimes justice is done

andy.connor.e | 2019年5月23日

They are a billions of billions of billions of $$$$ corporation. They will spend whatever money it takes to not have their product labeled as carcinogenic, even though its so much more than that. Incredible that people use the stuff. When i bought my house, it was recommended to me by family members to get it to kill weeds. I almost couldnt believe what i was hearing.

Tesla-David | 2019年5月24日

Also Costco no longer sells Roundup

Mike83 | 2019年5月25日

Research other than the corporate paid studies differ.
Another EPA plan is to allow more rocket fuel contaminated drinking water.
Is this insanity?
