The big story this week was the Trump administration’s war mongering against Iran. But if Trump doesn’t kill us in a ill advised war in the Middle East, he’ll do it through environmental catastrophe, repealing an Obama era environmental policy, which experts believe will cause more than 1,400 premature deaths.
As always, I don’t expect to catch everything, so let me know if there’s anything you think I’ve missed. The full omnibus is being maintained here (a spreadsheet version can be found here). For an overall summary, click here.
