Former member of Trump’s EPA transition team suggests air pollution doesn’t kill people

“The 2017 State of Global Air Report found that air pollution — in particular, small-particle pollution known as PM 2.5 (caused by particles that are 2.5 micrometers or less in diameter, small enough to reach deep into the lungs and cross the blood-brain barrier) is responsible for 4.2 million deaths worldwide each year. The Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization (WHO), the National Institutes of Health, the American Lung Association, and the United Nations all link air pollution to increased risk of asthma, heart disease, and stroke. In 2013, the WHO even concluded that air pollution could be categorized as a human carcinogen.”

Notice that Trump cabinet and EPA director and staff are all fossil fuel bought and want to eliminate the EPA and environmental protections altogether. The GOP are bad people who sold their souls for money long ago and sell out America to the big energy and chemical companies as they have been doing for decades. Recall how oily men Bush-Cheney allowed the big energy and chemical companies to literally write their own regulations behind closed doors away from the public and environmental oversight. They gave out sweetheart deals to favorite like Koch Industries and Halliburton who respectively were able to write down EPA-Clinton-era fines for oil and benzine pollution or Halliburton given a exemption from the Clean Water Act, Clean Act Act and allowed to hide the contents of their toxic fracking fluids and toxic wastewater re-injected under ground from the public while spreading pollution nationwide in over one million fracking, natural gas and oil wells. By the time shallow, dull Americans wake up many waterways, underground water sources and the environment will be polluted forever.

The GOP always put profit over people, the environment and over the country and have to lie, lie, lie to con Americans year after year and GOP regime after regime. Think God does not know?
