Michael Flynn Had the Russians; Scott Pruitt Has the Oil Companies: Why the US Senate should reject Pruitt to Head the EPA

The recent resignation-in-disgrace of Trump Administration National Security Advisor (NSA), Michael Flynn, and the resulting damage to the country could have been avoided. If the President and his advisers had looked at Flynn more carefully before he was appointed to head the NSA (and assuming that they even cared about what they would have found), they would have realized that the conflicts created by Flynn's unusual coziness with the Russians would explode in their faces, and badly damage our national security interests.

Scott Pruitt has no Business Running the Environmental Protection Agency

This week, the U.S. Senate votes on whether to approve President Trump's choice, Scott Pruitt, to head the Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA"). Why should every Senator in the building vote "No"?

Scott Pruitt: Donald Trump's Pick to Dismantle the US EPA

I've written recently about President Trump's determination to get the EPA out of the business of protecting the environment and the lives and health of the American people. (EPA Blog) (Gorsuch blog). Huge corporate polluters-including petroleum and mining companies-are tired of having to comply with the federal clean air and water laws, and, in Trump, have found their man to take them off the hook.

Dirty Water: House of Representatives Kills Stream Protection Rule

The House of Representatives voted Wednesday to gut the Stream Protection Rule, which prevents coal companies from duping mining waste into local streams.

If you care about the environment's impact on our life and health, should you care about whether Judge Neil Gorsuch, who President Trump has just nominated, is approved for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court?

NEW EPA CHIEF IS BEST FRIEND TO THE WORLD'S BIGGEST POLLUTER: THE OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY

"You know a man by the company he keeps." That's what the Ancient Greek story teller, Aesop, said a long time ago. The expression has survived until today because it makes sense: we all know that there is a lot to be learned about someone by seeing the friends he/she chooses.

WHAT THE PEOPLE OF NONANTUM NEED TO KNOW ABOUT TCE VAPOR CONTAMINATION

For the last 17 years, I and a team of lawyers have been representing families threatened by TCE contamination in their water supply, in the groundwater underneath their homes, and in the air inside their homes (called "vapor intrusion"). Recent reports in the media unfortunately describe how TCE, disposed of years ago in Nonantum, Massachusetts has seeped into the groundwater about 60 feet below the surface, and, after turning into gas ('vapor"), has risen back up through the soil and intruded into the breathing space of area homes.
