Environmental Disaster Looms in Puerto Rico, Lashed by Hurricane Maria and Left Without Power 21.9.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico Wednesday as a Category 4 storm, bringing record rainfall and catastrophic flooding, destroying power lines and leaving the entire country in the dark. This comes as many homes on Puerto Rico were still dark two weeks after Hurricane Irma cut electricity to hundreds of thousands. The storm also raised concerns about potential environmental disasters. Puerto Rico is home to 23 Superfund sites, including on the island of Vieques, site of a former US naval test range, which took a near-direct hit from the storm. It is also the site of a coal-fired power plant owned by the private company AES. Residents across the island have been demanding the plant be closed and that the company stop dumping toxic coal ash into their community, saying the waste is poisonous to their health and the environment. We speak with Emily Atkin, staff writer covering the environment at the New Republic, who writes, "Puerto Rico is Already an Environmental Tragedy. Hurricane Maria Will ...

Under Trump, Environmental Justice Policy Ignores an Entire Section of the Population 9.8.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Janine Jackson: The story of Flint, Michigan's water is far from over. The state attorney general has brought  involuntary manslaughter charges  against five officials so far, for waiting a year to tell the largely African-American community about an outbreak of Legionnaire's disease, believed to have killed at least 12 people, and for deflecting scrutiny of the outbreak, which, along with lead levels that in some cases qualified the city's water as toxic waste, was linked to the failure to take anti-corrosion measures when the city switched water sources. That was on the watch of Flint's then -- emergency manager Darnell Earley, who faces charges along with Health and Human Services Director Nick Lyon and others. The case has issues. The AG says he wasn't able to interview Michigan Gov.
