Wicked Wednesday

1a

The Trump administration is rolling back Obama-era standards to limit planet-warming methane pollution from oil and gas operations on federal lands.

Environmental advocates said retracting the regulation would contribute to global warming and cause more smog-forming pollution that can cause heart and lung illnesses.

But the interior department deputy secretary, David Bernhardt, called the 2016 Obama-era rule “flawed” and “a radical assertion of legal authority” in a news release.

The rule regulated flaring, leaking and venting natural gas on US federal and Native American tribal lands. The interior department’s Bureau of Land Management argued the standards overlapped with state, tribal and federal rules and that the Obama administration underestimated its costs.

Lena Moffitt, senior director of the Sierra Club’s Our Wild America campaign, called the announcement “a continuation of this administration’s ongoing assault on clean air, public lands, our health and our climate”, and said: “We’ve already successfully defended these protections in court and in Congress, and the fight won’t stop here.”

    If Obomber did it it has to be removed from the regulations.

    Doesn’t matter WHAT is killing us, none of it will ever be curbed, or stopped. Plain, old doomed.

    Pete came over with their electric edger that they got free at a yard sale. Wow, it was done in no time. Plus I didn’t have to do it, lol. Of course, after he went home, I did the clean up, dust and dirt was everywhere. Then I pulled the weeds along the doggy ramp, tossed them on the lawn and got the tractor out and ran it all over. That area looks pretty nifty right now, thank goodness.

    And now I can hardly walk after sitting, pulled a muscle in my right back…again. *sigh* When I go out I’ll still make myself walk. I pushed myself after the cleanup, had to do dishes and make my salads and I was whining, and sitting down constantly. I was in tears by the time I was done, I wanted to sit down so badly, but I pushed myself until I was done. For me, there is no later, get her done, I say.

    I have another large pack of boneless chicken thighs to bread and fry, I doubt I’ll be doing that tomorrow, unless I’m cured. 🙂

    BIG K has plenty of support, since the Reich Wing insists on trashing his victim instead of scrutinizing him, death threats? Having to move her family? Asshole puggers at work in the Senate and public, absolutely repulsive behavior with no apparent will to make it cease.

    No wonder women neglect to come forward against their accusers.
