Trump is a Dirty Old Man
California currently has 98 major environmental disaster sites, known as Superfund sites. A Superfund site is designated by the EPA as being a present danger for residents of California. These dangers include soil, air, and water contaminated with toxic materials, as well as other hazards of industrial waste.
Trump’s budget request proposes cutting the Superfund program by one third ($330 million).
As Republicans continue their attempt to gut the EPA from the inside, the party that founded the EPA is now its biggest threat. This budget loss would directly threaten the 53 million people who live near the 1,337 Superfund sites in America, leaving them at risk for disease and property damage from extreme pollution.
