Water, Water, Everywhere, Nor Any Drop to Drink
Samuel Taylor Coleridge,
President Trump is waging war on America. He has made it possible for coal, natural gas and oil industries to dump waste products into water sources that have slowly been made usable. Trump has signed multiple executive orders that all regulations protecting our country’s water should be greatly relaxed or eliminated.
On March 28, 2017, Trump signed an executive order, the purpose of which was to rewrite the Clean Power Plan in favor of fuel producing industries. It is obvious that Trump is step-by-step rolling back Obama’s climate-change plan for the future. The Stream Protection rule forbids coal companies from dumping rocks and other debris created by mountain top removal mining into nearby streams. The Natural Resources Defense Council reported that “mountain top removal mining, in which ground is blasted to access coal seams below has been responsible for the destruction of 2,000 miles of streams in Appalachia”. http://www.npr.org/2017/01/30/512445032/trump-acts-to-roll-back-regulations-on-businesses. Of course that is rural America so they don’t count (In GOP minds).
