Hundreds Fleeing Trump’s EPA


>>HUNDREDS OF EPA EMPLOYEES ARE
NO MORE UNDER TRUMP, ACCORDING TO A TIMES AND PRO PUBLICA
REPORT. THEY REPORTED THAT THE DEPARTURES WERE BUYOUTS,
RETIREMENTS, AND INDIVIDUALS QUITTING, BUT TOTALED MORE THAN
700 EMPLOYEES, INCLUDING MORE THAN 200 SCIENTISTS, HAVE
DISAPPEARED FROM THE EPA. DESPITE THE DECREASE IN SCIENCE
POSTS THERE’S BEEN AN UPTICK IN POLITICAL APPOINTEES, ACCORDING
TO THIS PRO PUBLICA AND NEW YORK TIMES REPORT. THERE HAS BEEN A
HIRING FREEZE AT THE EPA, ONE OF THE EPA WORKERS UNION
REPRESENTATIVES SAYS THAT THERE WAS A HIRING FREEZE AND THE
TRUMP ADMINISTRATION SEEKS TO GET RID OF 3100 FULL-TIME
EMPLOYEES, AND THE BUDGET HINTS AT UPWARDS OF 4000. SO OF COURSE
THE EPA IS UNDER ATTACK IN ADDITION TO SCOTT PRUITT BEING
IN CHARGE OF IT, WHO WAS SUING THE EPA WHEN HE TOOK THE POST,
BUT TRUMP IS STILL BUILDING WALLS TO COMBAT CLIMATE CHANGE. THAT SEEMS TO BE THE ONLY PLACE HE’S TAKING A STAND AGAINST
CLIMATE CHANGE. HE’S BUILDING TWO WALLS –>>THIS IS THAT HIS GOLF COURSE
IN IRELAND.>>HE’S TAKING APART THE EPA,
WHICH SEEMS TO IMPLY THAT HE DOESN’T BELIEVE IN CLIMATE
CHANGE, HOWEVER –>>MY FAVORITE PART OF THAT
STORY IS WE JUST EARLIER IN THE WEEK TOLD YOU THAT THE TRUMP
ADMINISTRATION MADE THE PENTAGON TAKE OUT CLIMATE CHANGE AS A
THREAT TO OUR MILITARY AND TO OUR COUNTRY, HE MADE THEM TAKE
IT OUT EVEN THOUGH THEY ACTUALLY THINK IT IS A SECURITY THREAT,
AND THEY’VE BEEN SAYING ALL ALONG. BUT WHEN IT SERVES HIS
PURPOSE AS HE PUTS IT IN THE PERMIT TO BUILD WALLS IN
IRELAND. CLIMATE CHANGE, DID YOU KNOW ABOUT RISING SEA LEVELS? NOBODY KNEW ABOUT RISING SEA LEVELS UNTIL NOW. SO I NEED THE
WALLS, AND UNFORTUNATELY THEY APPROVED IT IN THE CASE OF
IRELAND BECAUSE ACTUALLY THERE ARE RISING SEA LEVELS,
THAT PART IS TRUE.>>AND WHAT IS GOING ON AT THE
EPA HAS MORE TO DO WITH THINGS THAT AFFECT THE QUALITY OF WATER
AND AIR AND WHAT IS LEACHING INTO THE WATER SUPPLY FROM THE
EARTH THAN EVEN CLIMATE CHANGE. THE EPA DEALS WITH THE SUPERFUND
SITES THAT HAVE BEEN VASTLY COMPROMISED. DURING THE
HURRICANE, REMEMBER IN TEXAS, WE FOUND OUT THERE WERE ALL THESE
SUPERFUND SITES, THOSE ARE TOXIFIED AREAS THAT WERE BEING
INUNDATED WITH WATER, A GUTTED EPA CAN’T ADDRESS POLLUTANTS
THAT ARE GETTING INTO THE WATER SUPPLY OF AMERICANS. ADD TO THAT
ALL THOSE REGULATIONS THAT AFFECT CLEAN AIR AND CLEAN WATER
ACROSS THE BOARD. SO WHAT YOU WERE SEEING PLAYED OUT AT THE
EPA EXTENDS BEYOND CLIMATE CHANGE, IT EXTENDS TO THE AIR WE
BREATHE AND THE WATER WE USED TO BE ABLE TO DRINK.>>AND IN TERMS OF THE DAMAGE
THEY ARE DOING AT THE EPA, 700 EMPLOYEES GONE ALREADY, BUT
ACCORDING TO THEIR BUDGET, THEY WILL ACTUALLY GET RID OF 4000
EMPLOYEES AT THE EPA. PUT ASIDE CLIMATE CHANGE. POLLUTION, THE
SUPERFUND SITES, ALL THOSE THINGS, THE STREAMS IN YOUR
NEIGHBORHOODS, YOU LIKE COPS? THESE ARE COPS TO PROTECT YOUR
FAMILY FROM SOMETHING EQUALLY DANGEROUS, WHICH IS THE POISON
IN THE AIR AND THE WATER, ETC., THEY ARE TAKING ALL THE COPS
AWAY SO THE ROBBERS ARE THRILLED.>>AND HIS CHERRY PICKING — IT
JUST PROVES TRUMP IS DISINGENUOUS. WHEN IT COMES TO
HIS INTERESTS IN PRESERVING HIS OWN PROPERTY, HE’S SAYING I ONLY
ESSENTIALLY BELIEVE IN CLIMATE CHANGE IN THE COAST AROUND MY
GOLF COURSE. THAT’S THE ONLY TIME HE THINKS IT APPLIES TO
ANYTHING. AND WHEN IT COMES TO THE EPA WHERE YOU LIVE, HE’S
LIKE IT’S NOT A PROBLEM. CLIMATE CHANGE IS NOT A THING, DON’T
WORRY ABOUT IT, IT WILL BE FINE. WHICH JUST PROVES THAT HE ONLY
USES THESE ARGUMENTS WHEN THEY LITERALLY BENEFIT HIM
PERSONALLY.>>THIS IS A GUY WHO DOESN’T KNOW
CLIMATE CHANGE FROM NON-CLIMATE CHANGE, HE IS REGURGITATING THAT
WHICH HE KNOWS IS THE PARTY POSITION ON CLIMATE CHANGE. BUT
THE ASSAULT ON THE ENVIRONMENT HE’S UNLEASHING, AND THE EPA AND
THE GUTTING OF IT, IS JUST ONE PART OF IT. THE OTHER PART IS
ALLOWING HIS CORPORATE PALS TO DO WHATEVER THE EFF THEY WANT IN
TERMS OF POLLUTING THOSE STREAMS, IN TERMS OF FRACKING,
AND MINERAL EXPLOITATION ON U.S. PARKLANDS. WHAT YOU ARE SEEING
IS A SELLING OUT OF THIS COUNTRY AND AN ASSAULT ON THIS
ENVIRONMENT, ON AN UNPRECEDENTED SCALE, AND I THINK THE EPA IS
THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG.>>BUT TO BE FAIR TO HIM, HE
LOVES WALLS. AND HE KNOWS HOW BIG THE OCEAN IS. IF YOU
REMEMBER, DURING THE PUERTO RICO DISASTER, HE SAID PUERTO RICO IS
AN ISLAND SURROUNDED BY WATER, BIG WATER, OCEAN WATER. SO MAYBE
HE REALIZED, OH MY GOD, IRELAND, ALSO SURROUNDED BY BIG WATER,
OCEAN WATER, AND YOU KNOW WHAT? THE OCEAN IS SENDING A LOT OF
TROUBLE TO IRELAND. SENDING SOME OF ITS WORST. SOME OF IT I’M SURE IS GOOD
OCEAN WATER, BUT THEY NEED A WALL, IRELAND NEEDS A WALL, TO
KEEP OUT THE DANGEROUS, BIG OCEAN WATER. I’M JUST TRYING TO BE FAIR TO
HIM, HE’S BEEN CONSISTENT ON THAT.

  • Obamas epa not trumps Obama hold overs you all are not very smart. Where's chunk

  • The EPA is filthy with political activists. Anyone whose job isn't related to clean water and air should feel uncomfortable at the EPA. Under Obama there were 3000 towns/cities in America with worse water than Flint while a significant portion of the EPA not having anything to do with air or water.

  • EPA layoffs so trump can pocket the rest of the cash

  • Trump hates HUD, the EPA and Education. The people he hired to run those agencies have the goal of killing the agency.

  • Trump exists within a bubble of his own creation and the rest of the world serves merely as a one dimensional facade – a group of props – that he uses to reinforce his own opinions about himself. We're not even real to him. We don't actually exist to him. We are perceived as either threats or assets. And, our protestations are merely noise and affirmations that we are really out to get him. He can't actually hear anything any of us are saying.

  • Can uwear A tie

  • Is cenk still employed

  • ha. more trump idiocy

  • YAAAY! No science! Now let me get back to using my smart phone, while shitting using indoor plumbing, inside a climate controlled environment, lit by electricity, using some kind of corrective lens to read, while I use remote start to warm it up without having to go outside for a second. Yeah. We hate science.

  • There is a reason that Nixon of all presidents signed the EPA into existence. Trump could have saved his money on the walls and just touted that course as having the bestest bigliest water hazards of any course in the world.

  • Wow a president doing what he said he would do
    Note EPA doesn't clean up supersites contractors do
    And the last time they screwed up. At the Gold flooded mine
    They have yet to settle with the Indians that they're flooding of the mine affected

  • lets see..first there was global warming then climate change and the latest is the coming ice age. plenty of sciencetific evidence to support each one. i think it time we revive the ice man and ask him what happened.

  • Trump's limestone walls around his golf course will quickly be destroyed by acid rain lol

  • I worked with the EPA. On environmental clean-ups and restorations. When I started, as a result of a lack of environmental regulations the lakes and rivers downstream from polluters were highly contaminated. To the point fish and wildlife populations were destroyed. You couldn't swim or fish in many waters. On one river I worked on and in, below a pulp mill using a sulfate pulping process, the river was so severely polluted that 20 miles down stream from the mill the fumes emanating from the river discolored porclaine cups and saucers in people's homes. Fish kills were common. As a result of EPA and State efforts things were getting to the point where we had fishable and swimable water again. And our recreation based economy was thriving.

    And now this moron and the Republican party want to take us back to a time when industries owned the water instead of the public. They want to make our lakes and streams stinking sess-pools again. It's been a constant battle against polluters for as far back as I can remember and now they're winning. MAASPA (Making America A Sesspool Again).

    ANYONE WHO THINKS THE USEPA HAS NOT BEEN DOING A GREAT JOB DOES NOT HAVE A CLUE! I guarantee it.

  • Trump irresponsible. Destroying US environment. Doesn't care. Euthanize.

  • Luckily, a significant portion of protected lands belong in red states, as well as lands affected by the growing threat of systemic climate change. Tornado season in the Midwest gets worse every year, while Hurricane season hits the Southernmost Red States harder and harder. Enjoy Republicans. Haha 😂

  • When will someone kill this president ?

  • Trump keeps his election promises

  • The EPA has made such a significance difference in water and air quality. You can’t enjoy any jobs or infrastructure if you can’t breathe and your food/land is poisoned. Caring about the environment and business can and should go hand and hand. Only greedy companies say otherwise. Signed, a successful, eco-friendly business owner and proud relative of an EPA worker. 🇺🇸💕

  • EPA. Is. A. JOkE. 📣❗📣. Don't. Do. A
    DAM. Thing. 4. OUR. Inverment. 📣❗📣
    The. WALL. ASAP. 📣❗📣
    69. Murders. A. DAY. In. Mexico. 📣❗📣

  • Why. Have. ALL. The. NUKE. Plants. In. USA. Been
    Leaking. 4. Decade's. ???? DAH. 🚽❗🚽

  • As a govt agency, EPA is likely 500% overstaffed, in particular after a decade of socialist big .gov Obummer….I'd laugh at anyone telling me a gov agency is understaffed GTFO. Not only that but the EPA recently killed the Colorado River by dumping thousands of gallons of cyanide into it so bitches, please.

  • i work as a chemist. My company has many products that must be regulated by the EPA. It is without any reasonable doubt that without the EPA regulations we would be producing harmful products. The general public has no idea which regulations are in place and what they protect. Without these regulations, i am very confident we would be producing harmful products and my company would not care in the slightest.

  • 'Without the EPA, the planet would certainly be ruined within a few months'….LOL hysterical retarded progs!

  • OH the irony of Trump poisoning his voters

  • WTF is up with Trump and Walls???

  • Trump is an idiot truly and a greedy piece of shit

  • Yes well of course, if you care for the environment why would you want to work for the Orwellian anti-environment organisation that Trump has turned the EPA into?

  • I think it's time we call upon Captain Planet and the Planeteers

  • US Americans he he ha ha

  • It's time for mother earth to take care of herself…she's old enough…6000 years old.

  • Of course the cult that loves Trump sees no reason to even have an EPA.

  • When the ocean sends it's waves, it's not sending it's best waves. We need to build a wall!

  • Trump is the ultimate slum lord.

  • A reason to hang the maggots we call leaders… nothing like some corporate criminals hung from the Christmas trees

  • If it helps you, it's wrong. If it helps Trump, it's correct. Even when it's the Same Situation. Sounds like his Tax Bill.

  • Ireland approved his golf walls? WWWHHHYYYYyyyyyy?!?!

  • You people, in America, need to pay attention to what this idiot Trump is doing. But you are not. This has been going on for year. Get rid of this MORON!

  • Having to breathe is just a libtard myth. All us smart people realise that putting a plastic bag over your head makes you safer. 😉

  • A great day for Trump, Pruitt and the United States! Everyone knows scientists are liars and have a pro commy agenda. All of them. We only need to look in the Bible. <snide remark filter off>

  • The 1% doesn't care about environmental quality for average person. They have their own resources.

  • Nice more winning yes!! Trump is now trimming the fat from useless Jobs in American goverment. How many scientist does it take to test some water? Keep Trimming the fat from the bloated useless Obama errors. All Hail President Trump!!

  • TYT do something about your comments page, the russian trollbots have overran it

  • You can probably make money on climate change by building bunkers, storing food and selling guns, the 1% dont't care about you, they simply want you to die.

  • Is this what really happened? I heard Trump took the scientists and pushed them into lower class jobs to keep them from reporting on climate change. This was early on, right after election. Scientists had to do jobs that they hated and wasted years of schooling.

  • The new EPA's slogan should be: Everyone Poisoned Always

  • It is called shooting the messenger. Same goes for reducing funds to the NOAA. If the reported facts highlight the risks of their ideology, then rather than address them, they silence the reporters. Really can’t improve on Idiocracy,

  • so there running for the hills or toward france for it beter to be there then trump destroying all trade and relations america has

  • Trump needs to take apart other agencies; IRS, education, etc. Also there are no rising sea levels…where's the data?

  • Powerful scare tactics. "The EPA is hemorrhaging scientists and employees. Trump is destroying the environment. We're all going to be poisoned and doomed". Don't believe the hype. It's an extremely bloated agency, has overstepped its bounds and is in need of trimming. EPA compliance costs alone total over three hundred billion dollars annually! The EPA isn't going anywhere.

  • The three stooges at it again. More bs propaganda.

  • It would be funny, if it wasn't so tragic

  • What a moron. There will be NO PLACE TO HIDE from climate change in a few short years. Can you say hypocrisy? But, hey, it's the best hypocrisy.

  • EPA… Protecting the environment from those who would protect the environment

  • I guess Trump can build up the land around Mira Lago to make it an island. I wonder where he thinks his grandkids are going to live and what water they are going to drink, air they will breathe? Donny Dainty Hands, Destroyer of Worlds.

  • CENK UNGUR GOT FIRED FOR BEING A SCUMBAG!!!

  • If only we had hydrogen fusion the world energy problem would be gone over night. Someone figure out how to do it now!.

  • Trump is the smartest white supremacist, he truly represent them. The dumber you are the smarter with this crowd.

  • The Department of State is also being gutted under Rexxon Tillerson.

  • Lol Cenk😄😄 🏊🏻

  • Thumbs down to some Very FAKE NEWS. Obama, the FAKE President from Kenya had 8 yrs to fix dirty water in Flint. NOTHING. 8 yrs to help decrease crime in Chicago. IT GOT WORSE. He was supposed to end wars in the middle East. He leveled Syria and Libya with so many O-bombs that we actually ran out of bombs. Obama had NO PROBLEM KILLING THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT PEOPLE. Now that is a legacy he is proud of, what a piece of SHIT.. You libtards are so proud of the FAKE President from Kenya, you disgust me.

  • EXXON hates the Truth…..We have poisoned ourselves Terminally, EXXON and the Big Oil Fools demand we 'Push On"….Oil is the Opiate of the Masses….time to Kick It.

  • "The genes of women are flawed." – Cenk

  • The world is a less safer place since Trump's presidency . Thanks for the disaster .

  • Remember the second amendment …

  • Wow! These idiots pulled off the drama queen/Chicken Little impersonations exquisitely! LOL

  • You humans are so preoccupied with whether or not you could, you didn't stop to think if you should.

  • Probably one of the best things to happen in the last year.

  • Who knew that rising sea levels was so complicated?

  • Holy shit, we're going to get hundreds of scientists with a mental denial of facts, grads from prager U and trump university

  • Isis should visit his golf courses

  • Maybe Trump finally accepts that they'll be sea level rise in other countries but is sure it won't happen in the USA..

  • It's the end of the world as we know it. The Great Regression. back to the middle age for us

  • you people are all liberal shit morons

  • job creator trump just killed 4000 epa jobs >:3 that obama had created (hint: obama is a greater job creater than trump. hell obama is ten times the president trump will ever be)

  • there wont be any icebergs

  • Guess this is what Republican voters wanted no clean air,water.well when their kids get sick just remember MAGA.🤓🤓🤓

  • So many Alex Jones butt hurt fans in the comment section.

  • Was he not supposed to create jobs?

  • Long may he reign

  • Trump is an idiot , it's not funny anymore. Climate change is real my country is running out of fresh drinking water and suffering terrible draught and fires because of a change in weather patterns. We are relying on bottled water and are on rations of water. People are going to wake up when it's to late. We are going to end up like the movie " Water World" where water becomes more precious than gold or money. Very scary!!!!!! Every country will have to deal with its own calamities if this continues. To stop or possible reverse global warming we need every country to commit to fighting global warming. We only have one planet. Trump will go down as the man who killed the world if this madness continues. He is setting America on a course of destruction and the rest of the world with it.

  • Trump the job creator.

  • According to my conspiracy theories from multiple sources, the EPA is of the devil, and should be destroyed just like everything else. muhahahah

  • hope all drumpf supporters and trolls die with the toxics waters and lack of ACA, HAHAHAHAHAHA

  • When brush fires were burning out of control due to climate change in Texas a few years back, the Republican governor called FEMA for help. When shitty water starts draining from people's kitchen faucets and the water plants are deregulated, will he be able to call the EPA for help? Nope.

  • The Ocean water is a bad hombre.

  • So what doesn’t let anyone know that um…science matters? Or why does that get taught? Completely makes sense, because Donald Trump and supporters are still against what goes into the medical specialists actually studying and knowing what their doing. The reason of why America has been able to survive this long anyway. He knows what that’s going to do to their businesses and that’s not the case that’s also going to effect the population of America that doesn’t have the income value desired to receive any treatment across state lines.

  • Polluted water helps to Make America Great Again.

  • LOVE that they are cleaning house on one of the most dangerous agencies. EPA had way too much leverage against the people in the name of climate change.

  • …… uhhhh Limestone breaks down in water {over time yes} but wow he's dumb

  • EPA mine disaster caused by their recklessness

  • The problem is the people that run the EPA worked for the company’s that polluted Mother Earth! Just like the FDA is run by the meat Processing plants.

  • now lets set the coastal commision adrift

  • Why are HEROES of the environment RUNNING AWAY from their posts?

  • More nepotism and rape culture with TYT, yeah!

  • Pulluted water and air= dumb ass'es= trump voters

  • This is awesome, just as what happens when the government shuts down NON-ESSENTIAL GOVERNMENT, 89 percent of the EPA should be disbanded!

  • Cenk recently said 'the beautiful island nation of Togo". On par, only TRUMP WASN'T WRONG.

  • Somebody voted for the clown called "Donald Muck", otherwise he would not be there!
