California Weighs Tougher Emissions Rules For Gas-Powered Garden
Equipment. Those gas-powered leaf blowers, hedge trimmers and
mowers you hear in your neighborhood aren't just annoying — they
make a lot of pollution, too. In California, they're about to
pass cars as the worst air polluters, spewing out formaldehyde,
benzene and particulate matter.


Here are 4 ways climate change is messing with our brains — for
the worse. We might think of climate change as purely physical:
wildfires blazing through forests, rising seas lapping at the
doors of coastal homes. But those brutal conditions also affect
our mental health, changing how we think and act.


California May Push To Eliminate Gas, Diesel Light Vehicles.
California is obviously a highly-environmentally-minded place,
especially when it comes to vehicles. It has instituted many
systems, including one mandating a certain percentage of
zero-emissions vehicle sales, which encourage/force automakers to
step up their game in newer, greener technology.


White House eyes plan to cut EPA staff by one-fifth, eliminating
key programs. The Office of Management and Budget has suggested
deep cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency’s budget that
would reduce its staff by one-fifth in the first year and
eliminate dozens of programs, according to details of a document
reviewed by The Washington Post.

He Will Soon Run a Fifth of the Nation. Meet Ryan Zinke. As a
child in this town at the edge of the Continental Divide, Ryan
Zinke cut his own trails through alpine forest, swam laps in
Whitefish Lake and hiked the snow-packed paths of nearby Glacier
National Park. Later, as an Eagle Scout, he traced how railroad
oil spilled into the Whitefish River and watched as a single
spark set that waterway on fire.

SF supervisors’ vote to let natural resources plan go forward. It
took more than a decade, but the new blueprint for Mount Davidson
and Twin Peaks and about 1,000 acres of natural areas in San
Francisco will finally move forward after the Board of
Supervisors rejected an appeal of the plan on Tuesday.  The
supervisors voted 9-1 to reject it, after about four hours of
public comment…


Can The Courts Check Trump's Desire To Emasculate EPA? When
President Trump said last night that the time has come to put
“small thinking behind us,” he may not have fully thought through
his comments. During his national address, he spoke of clean air
and clean water, for example, while also saying he would rollback
the regulations to protect them. That’s the paradox of the whole
Trump administration…


Maps Show Where Americans Care about Climate Change. The updated
Yale Climate Opinion maps suggest Americans' opinions on climate
change differ sharply from that of the president. If you were
wondering how many Americans think coal-fired power plants should
cap emissions, how much they worry about climate change or even
how often they talk about it, well, there’s a map for that.
