Trump's Superfund Program Collides with Climate Change
Call you Representatives and ask how they plan to combat climate change
The Washington Post Reports: The Energy 202: Climate change stands to affect a key Trump priority: the Superfund program
While Trump continues to ignore climate change, it has now collided with one of his key presidential priorities - cleaning up Superfund sites across the country. Currently, 783 of these waste sites face the risk of flooding as a result of climate-fueled disasters.
A new study from the Government Accountability Office found that climate impacts threaten 6 in 10 Superfund sites, Brady Dennis and I reported. GAO investigators said the agency needs to take more aggressive action to acknowledge risks facing some of the nation’s most polluted sites — and to safeguard them amid a changing climate.
Additionally, another 234 toxic sites are at risk of wildfires and 187 are vulnerable to surge storms. In total, 945 toxic sites are threatened by climate change.
