El Problema Secreto de la EPA es Revelado

Earthjustice y el Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) publicaron una investigación conjunta que muestra cómo la Agencia de Protección Ambiental de la administración Trump viola regularmente la Ley de Control de Sustancias Tóxicas (o TSCA, por sus siglas en inglés) que regula la fabricación, el uso y la distribución de productos químicos. Desde agosto de 2016 hasta abril de 2019, Earthjustice y EDF revisaron en detalle más de 200 solicitudes nuevas, así como todos los avisos publicados por la EPA para informar al público sobre el recibo de un equivalente de 1.700 solicitudes entre 2016 y principios de 2020.

The Pacific Northwest was home to one of the greatest salmon runs in the world — until four massive dams began restricting passage from the ocean to freshwater streams. Now, it’s up to communities in the region to work together, and to local elected leaders to join them.

Comments on Changes to Proposed Advanced Clean Truck Regulation

This letter is a follow-up to CARB’s February 20th workshop on proposed changes to the Advanced Clean Truck Regulation.

Consequently, a majority of Board Members directed Staff to strengthen the rule, ensure its consistency with the State’s air and climate targets, and accelerate benefits for disadvantaged communities.
