If you’re familiar with this blog at all, you know that environmental issues are a very big deal to me.
If you care about our planet, no doubt you’ve made sure that the way you go about living your life reflects that attitude of caring. Caring about the Earth on which we all depend.
No doubt you also think that public policy should be made and be carried out in ways that favor the Earth. Ways that, if they don’t actually help our planet, would at least not harm it.
Well, if you feel that way, you’d definitely be at odds with the way our policies about the environment are being made and being carried out right now.
If you’d read this far, some thought relating to the EPA most likely has popped into your head.
And yes, how the EPA goes about its business is a very big deal.
If you’re not quite sure what the EPA does or whether its work actually matters, this article from Nat Geo would be a big help.
It’s a fairly quick read. I recommend it highly.
Public policy matters. It matters a lot.
It’s time to step up our game. The welfare of our Planet and the survival of our species depend on us and what we do. Our elected officials are not only not helping, they’re making it harder for concerned citizens and Earth defenders to do anything.
The sad truth is that this will not change unless we force those in power to make the changes.
