It’s easier to tear down than to build up

It’s a cliché to say that it’s easier to tear something down than to build it up. Perhaps in 2019 with all the environmental rules and workplace safety regulations that might not be quite as true as it has been for centuries, but no one is around who will deny that in a little more than 2 years politicians have torn down 70 years of environmental improvements.  And how long it will take to reverse the damage done by both the administration and Congress for not standing up to the administration and doing it’s job — well, I’m not actually all the hopeful that they ever will.

Take a while and look up what these five acts did to make our air safer to breathe and our water safer to drink, oil less of a danger and wetlands to be recognized as an essential element for our safety and health.
