Clean Energy Means Jobs
“Regarding the criteria for reviewing regulations that eliminate jobs or inhibit job creation: Economic growth for the US is in clean energy, clean water and other green technologies, not in polluting and carbon-based industries. The fossil fuel industries (coal, oil, gas) employ fewer people than the solar industry. (Bloomberg https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-05-25/clean-energy-jobs-surpass-oil-drilling-for-first-time-in-u-s) Solar and other clean energy jobs are growing in the US and abroad. There are over 8 million solar energy jobs worldwide, and solar jobs are projected to grow to 24 million in 2030. EPA regulations should protect the environment and support the economic benefits of clean energy simultaneously.”
What is “Your Daily Docket”?
– 3 weeks of daily scripts until the Public Comment period closes May 15, 2017 –
Your Daily Docket provides 3 weeks of daily scripts for public comments for the Proposed Rule, Evaluation of Existing Regulations, aka (in Trump/Pruitt’s minds) “how best to gut the EPA”. Trump/Pruitt are likely expecting industry to flood the public comments docket with their wish lists, and call it a day on May 15 when the comment period closes. However, a quick look at the comments submitted so far have been more to the tune of, “I like to breathe. When I can’t breathe I get scared. I also like to drink water.” https://www.regulations.gov/docket?D=EPA-HQ-OA-2017-0190
We want to encourage you and your neighbors to enter comments on the open docket early and often until the public comment period closes on May 15.
Your Daily Docket provides daily scripts for ideas and inspiration for your own comments. Take the daily comments and make them your own. We aim to make each Your Daily Docket speak to a particular issue.
Let’s use our collective voice for ourselves, our planet and future generations!
