Do you think the government is doing enough for the Black community? De-escalation is definitely what we need during all these protests and rioting because all this country need is justice. To get justice, it's important for not only the government, but also the police to listen and try to understand what the purpose is for the Black Lives Matter movement so that no unnecessary harm will occur and affect innocent people. But is it that easy?

Incoming Democratic leaders of the House Natural Resources Committee, Rep. Raul M. Grijalva of Arizona and Rep. Alan Lowenthal of California, highlight an environmental report by the U.S. Geological Survey that concluded public lands are responsible for nearly a quarter of all U.S. carbon dioxide emissions. Noting the Trump administration's enthusiastic endorsement of coal mining and oil and gas drilling on public lands, they vow to explore better options, especially in light of another report, mandated by Congress, that gave new urgency to expected impacts of climate change on people's health, their homes, and the overall U.S. economy. "Our parks, forests, oceans, and wild, open spaces shouldn't be used to make our climate crisis worse," say the lawmakers, endorsing the transition to sustainable use of the nation's considerable renewable resources.
The Trump administration, as part of its anti-regulatory frenzy, has decided that the worst oil spill in the nation's history was not worth remembering, writes Fred Grimm.

Meanwhile, rather than wait for the cumbersome process it takes to undo federal regulations, Politico reported that Interior has jumped ahead and issued an extraordinary 1,679 exemptions to the safety rules. Most of the exemptions allowed offshore drilling companies to bypass regulations that tighten the maintenance and testing requirements for the so-called "blowout preventers" that automatically cap a wellhead in case of a rupture. Of course, the blowout preventer on Deepwater Horizon failed spectacularly.
