Does this mean we will all need more than paper masks and water filters for an undetermined amount of time?
From The Hill:
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a sweeping suspension of its enforcement of environmental laws Thursday, telling companies they would not need to meet environmental standards during the coronavirus outbreak.
The temporary policy, for which the EPA has set no end date, would allow any number of industries to skirt environmental laws, with the agency saying it will not “seek penalties for noncompliance with routine monitoring and reporting obligations.”
Cynthia Giles, who headed the EPA’s Office of Enforcement during the Obama administration, called it a moratorium on enforcing the nation’s environmental laws and an abdication of the agency’s duty.
“This EPA statement is essentially a nationwide waiver of environmental rules for the indefinite future. It tells companies across the country that they will not face enforcement even if they emit unlawful air and water pollution in violation of environmental laws, so long as they claim that those failures are in some way ’caused’ by the virus pandemic. And it allows them an out on monitoring too, so we may never know how bad the violating pollution was,” she wrote in a statement to The Hill.
On a related note – the EPA has no jurisdiction over pollution from sources of “Electrosmog” which includes 5G, Bluetooth, Cell Phone and WiFi Radiation. They were relieved of that duty when they wanted to raise red flags about biological and environmental harm caused by it. Since then, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) – which is not a health or environmental agency – has been in charge of protecting the public from those sources. Unfortunately, it’s been “anything goes time” with them since long before the Trump administration. There have been lawsuits filed against The FCC for not protecting the public from radiation exposure (see 1, 2) and also 5G (see 1, 2, 3, 4).
The “Race to 5G” has made the FCC more brazen and more dangerous. They have actually used the coronavirus as an excuse to speed up 5G deployment and put WiFi hotspots in families’ homes even though exposure to “Electrosmog” (including WiFi and 5G) reduces the immune system’s ability to fight illness.
Opposition to 5G and other sources of “Electrosmog” continues to increase in the U.S. and worldwide.
