Trump’s Proposed EPA Cuts Threaten Health of Millions of Americans
New details have emerged on the Trump administration’s plans to dramatically reduce the power of the Environmental Protection Agency. According to a leaked copy of the EPA’s 2018 budget proposal, the agency’s overall budget would be slashed by 25 percent.
More people die from air pollution than any other social problems, including terrorist attacks, drunk driving, gun violence, says Bill Becker, executive director of the National Association of Clean Air Agencies. "The bottom line, if these cuts go through, we can almost guarantee with certainty that there will be more premature deaths and more sicknesses throughout the country," Becker says. "The public should be outraged at that."
This comes as the Trump administration has vowed to roll back Obama-era EPA actions, and the White House continues to grapple with its position on the Paris climate agreement. We are also joined by Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch.
