Trump to repeal Obama fracking rule The Trump administration will take its final step to repeal the Obama administration’s 2015 rule setting standards for hydraulic fracturing on federal land.A formal notice from the Interior Department’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) ….The Trump administration seeks to roll back offshore drilling safety standards of some of a wide-ranging Obama-era regulation that was meant to improve the safety of offshore oil and natural gas drilling……….The proposed rollbacks by the Interior Department’s Bureau of Safety and Environment Court won’t reconsider dismissing case against Obama fracking rule according to an appeals court declined Wednesday to reconsider its September decision that undid a previous court ruling overturning the Obama administration’s fracking rule for federal land………..In a brief order that didn’t come with an explanation, the Denver-based company ……USA – Voice of America reports http://ift.tt/2CkoKvH President Donald Trump’s administration is rescinding proposed rules for hydraulic fracturing and other oil- and gas-drilling practices on government lands, government officials announced Thursday:…………The rules developed under President Barack Obama would have applied mainly in the West, where most federal lands are located………..Companies would have had to disclose the chemicals used in fracking, which pumps pressurized water underground to break open hydrocarbon deposits……………The rules to be rescinded Friday were supposed to take effect in 2015, but a federal judge in Wyoming blocked them at the last minute. In September, the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver declined to rule in that case because the Trump administration intended to rescind the rules……………Industry praise the long-awaited change drew praise from industry groups including the Washington, D.C.-based Independent Petroleum Association of America and Denver-based Western Energy Alliance, which sued to block the rules………..They claimed the federal rules would have duplicated state rules, putting unnecessary and expensive burdens on petroleum developers. “States have an exemplary safety record regulating fracking, and that environmental protection will continue as before,” Western Energy Alliance President Kathleen Sgamma said in a release…………Fracking and water Fracking has been so successful in boosting production over the past decade it has become almost synonymous with oil and gas drilling. In many areas, it would be rare nowadays for a gas or oil well to not be fracked…….The process requires several million gallons of water each time….Environmentalists say the potential risks to groundwater require regulation. “Fracking is a toxic business, and that’s why states and countries have banned it Trump’s reckless decision to repeal these common-sense protections will have serious consequences,” Brett Hartl, government affairs director at the Centre for Biological Diversity, said in an email…..

#BREAKING144 ‘ EPA Aircraft emissions endanger peoples lives ‘

#AceBreakingNews – WASHINGTON:June.10: (WASHINGTON EXAMINER) The Environmental Protection Agency announced Wednesday that emissions from commercial jets cause climate change, endangering the public’s health and welfare.

“Today’s action supports the goals of the President’s Climate Action Plan to reduce emissions from large sources of carbon pollution,” the EPA said in a press release.

The announcement is the first step in regulating the emissions from commercial airlines that most scientists say are to blame for manmade climate change. The regulations fall in step with the agency’s efforts to regulate the emissions from cars, trucks and power plants.

The EPA says it is excluding military and smaller aircraft from the regulations.

#AceEnvironmentNews says “Could Not Happen To a Nicer Guy” #EPA

A Conservative Edge

poor richards newsPoor Richard’s News – EPA’s top climate change expert convicted of fraud “of massive proportion”.

And you thought Ben Stiller’s new movie The Secret Life of Walter Mitty was just fiction, an overproduced remake of the Danny Kaye classic. Actually, it appears to be the inspiration for the legal defense that the EPA’s top climate change expert is using to get out of jail for cheating the taxpayers out of over $1 million.

from NBC News:

The EPA’s highest-paid employee and a leading expert on climate change deserves to go to prison for at least 30 months for lying to his bosses and saying he was a CIA spy working in Pakistan so he could avoid doing his real job, say federal prosecutors.

John C. Beale, who pled guilty in September to bilking the government out of nearly $1 million in salary and other benefits over a decade, will be…

The EPA is in the middle of a number of regulatory actions that could be affected by a government shut-down. On Friday, the agency proposed to set a limit on carbon emissions from coal and natural gas power plants. Also last week, it published a report laying out its authority to regulate brooks, streams and other small bodies of water.http://thehill.com/blogs/regwatch/administration/323933-shutdown-would-shutter-epa-chief-says-
