The Other 100 Days: 5 Decades Before Trump, the New EPA Truly Made America Great Again 28.4.2017 Mother Jones
On New Year's Day in 1970, President Richard Nixon appeared in San Clemente, California, for the momentous signing of the National Environmental Policy Act—the congressional statute that formally recast the government's role from conserving the wilderness to protecting the health of the environment and the general public. In the previous decade, rising unrest over the link between pollution and poor health—spurred forward by Rachel Carson's groundbreaking 1962 exposé Silent Spring and Lady Bird Johnson's beautification campaign —gave birth to a burgeoning environmental movement demanding strong and urgent action from the federal government. Nixon, who was largely indifferent to environmental issues but sensitive about his own popularity, succumbed to the public pressure. There was no evidence of any indifference in San Clemente that day when he laid out his new vision for the decade: "The 1970s absolutely must be the years when America pays its debt to the past by reclaiming the purity of its air, its ...

The Forest Advisory Committee (FAC) of the Union Environment Ministry has cleared the decks for the Ken-Betwa river linking project. The project plans to transfer water from Ken river basin in Panna tiger reserve, Madhya Pradesh to the Betwa river basin, Uttar Pradesh, for irrigating drought prone Bundelkhand. In its meeting on Tuesday the top body, that clears diversion of forests for infrastructure projects, reached a compromise with the union water resources ministry regarding certain riders it had recommended during its meeting last month. The climb down of the FAC, especially relenting on its recommendation to reduce the height of the project dam by 5m, came in the wake of a letter that water resources minister Uma Bharti wrote to the her colleague Anil Dave, on April 12.
