Judge blocks Trump's drilling plans across the U.S. because they ignored climate change impact
A federal judge ruled late Tuesday that the Interior Department violated federal law by failing to take into account the climate impact of its oil and gas leasing out west.
The decision by U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Judge Rudolph Contreras marks the first time the Trump administration has been held to account for the climate impact of its energy dominance agenda, and it could have sweeping implications for the president's plan to boost fossil fuel production across the country. Contreras concluded that Interior's Bureau of Land Management "did not sufficiently consider climate change" when making decisions to auction off federal land in Wyoming to oil and gas drilling. The judge temporarily blocked drilling on roughly 300,000 acres of land in the state.
The initial ruling in the case brought by two advocacy groups, WildEarth Guardians and Physicians for Social Responsibility, has implications for oil and gas drilling on federal land throughout the West. In the decision, Contreras faulted the agency's environmental assessments as inadequate because they did not detail how individual drilling projects contributed to the nation's overall carbon output. Since greenhouse gas emissions are driving climate change, the judge wrote, these analyses did not provide policymakers and the public with a sufficient understanding of drilling's impact, as required under the National Environmental Policy Act.

Trump plans to cut U.S. aid to 3 Central American countries
The move against El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras deepens White House confrontations with Latin America over a surge in irregular migrations, including asylum seekers and others. Critics say the move is counterproductive and might increase migration.


https://www.washingtonpost.com/

Seems that things are not bad enough in stated countries This will just add more incentive to leave. Not to mention the cruelty * simple-mindedness of such an action Changing the situation in relevant nations seems the obvious solution After all, the US is so very wealthy it is in the position to asst in making major positive changes in those nations.......making them more deniable to live in and travel to. The US has no problem getting rid of leaders they don't like.......

House panel votes to subpoena former White House official who allegedly overturned security-clearance denials for Trump officials


The House Oversight and Reform Committee voted Tuesday to subpoena Carl Kline, who served as personnel security director at the White House during the first two years of the administration.

Tricia Newbold, a White House whistleblower, alleged that Kline, then her direct manager, overruled her clearance denials and then retaliated against her when she objected. Newbold told lawmakers that more than two dozen denials for security clearances have been overturned during the Trump administration.

Canadian provinces vow to resist Trudeau's landmark carbon tax


http://www.reuters.com/article/us-ca...-idUSKCN1RD2SE


OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada on Monday imposed a landmark carbon tax on four provinces which had defied Ottawa’s push to combat climate change, prompting unhappy premiers to say they would challenge the measure.


Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, citing international commitments to fight global warming, had made clear for two years he would slap the tax on any of the 10 provinces that did not come up with their own plans by April 1.



The measure is opposed by Ontario, the most populous province, where Trudeau’s Liberals need to do well to stand a chance of retaining power in a federal election this October.



Carbon pollution will initially cost C$20 ($15) a tonne, rising by C$10 a year until it reaches C$50 in 2022. It also applies in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and New Brunswick.



“As of today, it’s no longer free to pollute anywhere in Canada,” Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said on Twitter.
Official data regularly show Canada has little chance of meeting its climate change goals of reducing emissions by 30 percent from 2005 levels by 2030.



Canada will heat up twice as fast as the rest the world, with northern regions warming at an even greater pace, a Canadian environment ministry report said on Monday.



Smaller snow packs and a loss of glacier ice could mean water supply shortages in the summer, it added.



Trudeau says extreme weather events like forest fires and floods underline the need to combat global warming.



Although Ottawa says the money collected from the next tax will be returned to Canadians in the form of rebates, right-leaning parties portray it as a cash grab.



The Conservatives, who polls show could win the October election as a political scandal dogs Trudeau, promise to scrap the measure.



Ontario premier Doug Ford vowed to oppose what he called “the worst tax ever” in court.



“We’re going to keep fighting this carbon tax with every single tool at our disposal,” he said.



Trudeau’s other efforts to combat climate change are also proving a challenge.



Last year Ottawa unveiled plans to overhaul environmental assessments of energy projects, paying more attention to greenhouse gas emissions. Critics say this will deter investment at a time when existing projects are in trouble.



Canada bought Kinder Morgan Canada Ltd’s Trans Mountain crude pipeline for C$4.5 billion last year after the company expressed doubts it could proceed with plans to more than double the existing capacity.

Cannot AMERICA understand this is PURE EVIL?
.................................................. ...........................
Trump wants to give 62 cents of every dollar to the military. That's immoral.
"One set of moral priorities – a different one – would end our endless wars and use the vast wealth of this nation to end poverty and lead to true security for all of us. It would invest in healthcare, well-paying jobs, affordable higher education, safe drinking water and clean air for all of us.
The proposed Trump budget drops bombs on that vision – almost literally.
With this budget, Trump takes more than $1tn in taxpayer money and disperses fully $750bn to the military. Out of every taxpayer dollar, in other words, 62 cents go to the military and our militarized Department of Homeland Security. (Veterans’ benefits take another seven cents.)
That leaves just 31 cents for all the rest: education, job training, community economic development, housing, safe drinking water and clean air, health and science research, and the prevention of war through diplomacy and humanitarian aid.
The budget also cuts billions from non-discretionary anti-poverty programs outside of this $1tn. Medicaid and food stamps would be cut and disfigured beyond recognition.
At every turn, the Trump budget finds vast billions for militarization, while it cuts much smaller poverty and other programs, claiming the goal is to save money.
It includes $164bn in war funding, but it cuts $4.7bn in economic development and food assistance to other nations. It finds $14bn for a vanity project military branch called the space force, while it cuts $1.2bn for a program that’s built and preserved more than 1m affordable homes. It includes $11bn for contractor Lockheed Martin to build more F-35 jet fighters, but it cuts $3.7bn in heating and cooling assistance for 6m poor households.
And it includes more than $12bn for a wall at our border, while it cuts $1bn for Job Corps, the program that provides yearly training and work experience to 50,000 poor (and mostly black) youths.
The budget falsely claims to adhere to strict spending limits set by Congress for the military. But it hides an extra $174bn for the Pentagon in plain sight by adding it to a war spending account – despite the fact that the president has said he wants to bring back thousands of troops from Syria and Afghanistan. This gimmick brings total military spending all the way up to $750bn, even while the administration claims it is cutting the base Pentagon budget.

I can recognize it's a pure lie. Does that help?

Trump's budget proposal is 4.7 trillion, not one trillion.

Guess you got suckered, enit? Woulda taken you about ten seconds on google to check the numbers.
