Penn Environment helps you tell our Environmental Protection Agency to enforce Clean Water act standards in Pennsylvania. Apparently the Keystone State ranks second out of 50 states for exceeding these pollution standards, and this is yet another thing you don't want to be shouting WE'RE NUMBER ONE! about. Yet the EPA has, as you might expect, scaled back on its enforcement of the law, given that our Administration apparently only thinks "law and order" is for black folks and that all regulation keeping corporations from polluting is a "burden" on them. Corporations exceeded permitted pollution levels over 600 times during 2016 and 2017, with one Montgomery County prison exceeding its waste pollution limit 80 times. I guess they figure they'll just break the law and dare us to stop them. How like our President they are! But that doesn't mean we have to put up with it.
Meanwhile, if you've missed previous opportunities to tell your city's Mayor to pledge only to do city business with internet service-providing corporations that honor net neutrality principles, then Daily Kos still helps you do that. The FCC may have gutted net neutrality at the federal level, but that doesn't stop folks at the state and local levels from demanding that the Verizons and Comcasts of the world still treat all internet traffic the same, so that you can decide where you want to go on the internet, rather than letting corporations tell you where you can go. Of course, ISPs would only have to observe net neutrality principles when they do business with city governments if this effort is successful -- but if they just give up and decide it's too hard to distinguish every bit of network traffic to see exactly where it's going, we won't complain.
Finally, our Administration still has a jones to open up the Grand Canyon area to uranium mining. Why? To save mining jobs for The Forgotten Man, as our President would say? Ah, no -- uranium mining will first and foremost enrich mining CEOs, because our President only cares about other bosses. And a lot of folks who would get mining jobs probably would also prefer not to be sickened by uranium-tainted drinking water, and just so happens the Colorado River, which provides drinking water to good citizens in five American states, runs through the Grand Canyon. (Psst: that's how it became a Grand Canyon.) The Obama Administration imposed a 20-year moratorium on uranium mining in or near the Grand Canyon, but, you know, Obama did it, so it must now be undone. Penn Environment helps you tell our Interior Department to reject uranium mining in the Grand Canyon.
