“The EPA wants to know what you think about scrapping air-pollution and radiation rules”

(Rafi Letzt, Science Section, Business Insider, April 19, 2017)

You can read the entire article HERE, but here is the gist of it:

To repeal or revise a regulation, the EPA has to go through the same process used to create regulations, which includes public comment. The EPA has created a page on Regulations.gov where the public can comment. As of the morning of April 19, 2017, there were 1,268 comments, most of which appear to oppose repealing the air-quality regulations were logged. As of this post time (the afternoon of April 25) 19,147 comments have been received. To add your voice:

    Thanks for this link, Wendy. everyone should make a comment. There are myriad ways in which progress will be reversed if these regulations go on hold…We older folks should reflect on how much better things are (air, water quality, health of our rivers, etc.) I just watched the documentary on Rachel Carson the other night on WGBH and it was a reminder of how terrible things can get when corporations operate without regulations! Let’s gt on this and send in our comments. It would be great to get to a million

    These regulations were put in place for good reasons. Under no circumstances should they be repealed. This nation belongs to ALL of us, not just friends of the current administration. The majority of us are grateful that the previous administration cared enough about us and our families to strengthen our environmental protections.
