EnviRN News – October 11, 2017 War on EPA – Frontline Show

October 11, 2017

I am uttlerly gobsmacked. The west coast has been on fire this summer, and now fall. The south has floods and storms. Still we withdraw from all the opportunities to do somethng about climate change. The administration sounds like John Cleese – “‘Tis but a scratch….Just a flesh wound.”

EPA on Frontline

Tune in tonight to the Frontline piece – War on the EPA. It examines what is happening at the EPA and how we got to this point. It is showing at 10pm on my local PBS channel. I think it will be available online shortly after it shows on the regular schedule and place. Can you say you watch it on TV if you actually watch it on another device?

To see the trailer go to: War on EPA.
