Biden Signs Executive Order on ‘Environmental Justice’

Biden Signs Executive Order on ‘Environmental Justice’

In ironic twist, the catastrophe in a predominately white and Republican region is being cited as the factor in the decree.

Biden signed another executive order; this one expands the reach of the federal government and thrusts more race-based policies onto Americans.

In an ironic twist, the catastrophe in a predominately white and Republican region is being cited as a key factor in the decree.

Biden on Friday signed an executive order directing every single federal agency to work toward “environmental justice for all” and improve the lives of communities hit hardest by toxic pollution and climate change.

The order will establish a new Office of Environmental Justice within the White House to coordinate efforts across the government, and requires federal agencies to notify communities if toxic substances are released from a federal facility.

Disasters like the February derailment of a freight train in East Palestine, Ohio, that caused a hazardous chemical spill brought attention to environmental damage that some communities experience at higher rates.

“This is about people’s health. It’s about the health of our communities. It’s only about the future of our planet,” Biden told activists, lawmakers and others before signing the order in the Rose Garden at the White House.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre gave an incoherent response when asked how the move would impact the people of East Palestine, Ohio, which was the scene of a chemical release catastrophe after a train derailed.

The reason for the move may be to appease environmental activists ahead of Biden’s anticipated announcement that he will run again for president.

Friday’s move comes as as many environmental justice groups have been frustrated at the administration’s recent approval of a major Alaska oil project. CNN also reported Friday that the Biden administration is planning to roll out aggressive new rules to regulate planet-warming pollution from natural gas power plants – a move that could face fierce legal challenges.

Friday’s move also took place as Biden is preparing to announce his reelection bid as soon as next week, CNN reported Thursday. During his last presidential campaign, he worked hard to court environmental justice activist groups.

Biden’s new order directs agencies to work more closely with impacted communities and improve “gaps” in scientific data to try to better tackle the impacts of pollution on people’s health, a White House official said. If toxic substances were released from a federal facility in the future, the order requires federal agencies to notify nearby communities.

Meanwhile, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the results of its dioxin testing. Long-term exposure to dioxin, which was one of the many products generated in the wake of the massive chemical fire, is linked to impairment of the immune system, the developing nervous system, the endocrine system, and reproductive functions.

The residents were skeptical of the minimization of the hazards present in the data given by the EPA.

“You’re telling me a campfire would cause dioxins but something of this magnitude wouldn’t?” asked Linda Murphy, an East Palestine resident.

“Our modeling did show that dioxins were created, absolutely. The science suggests that the level of dioxins over the wide area that that smoke plume went would not produce a significant impact to that particular contaminant in those areas. Impacts, yes, but significant impacts, no,” Durno said.

Other attendees brought up questions about vinyl chloride exposure, stating that people have tested positive for traces of vinyl chloride in their urine.

Durno said data showed similar low-level results for the semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOC) tested for, which include vinyl chloride and butyl acrylate.

Both Durno and attendees questioned how the SVOC results can show low levels while people are testing positive for traces of it.

The residents are also dealing with plummeting home prices.

But the process of selling her home since then has been “a nightmare,” [Melissa Henry told CNN. “If the train wouldn’t have derailed, we would have sold within a couple of days,” Henry said. “But since the train derailed, nobody really wants to come to this town.”

Needing to move on with her life, she listed her four bedroom, 1,100-square foot home three weeks after the accident for $150,000. The first offer she received was $50,000 below the asking price. She reduced the price in March to $140,000 and ultimately went into contract with a first-time home buyer who offered $25,000 below the asking price.

Clearly, Biden’s executive order has nothing to do with the environment, or justice, for the people of East Palestine.

“What’s important to note about this…is the President’s continued support in his climate agenda, his ambitious climate change.”

I think we’ve all noted that, Karinge. We’ve also often noted his ambitious checkmark quota, the one that’s apparent every time you open your mouth.

Does White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre give a coherent response when asked about anything?

    If she did it would be in the Guiness Book of World Records.

    If you need emergency directions to the men’s room during a presser, you’re screwed.

    That’s a very good question you asked there. As I’ve said before, we don’t have any new information to provide to you. I suggest you speak with the Justice Department directly.

She flips pages well in that book on the podium

Affirmative Action Barbie is a fu*king moron.

Any justice which requires an adjective in front of it is not justice.

Oh good, more bureaucracy to suck tax money and dish out to Leftist organizations to swindle away.
Raggity Karine could give a straight answer on a highway in Kansas if she was standing in the middle of the road.

    It’s only an executive order. I’m sure President Trump will revoke it once back in office.

Setting up to take advantage of a “crisis” they will create.

No amount of liberal graft will change nature.

Biden would have to cram and use cheat sheets to pass the test for blithering idiot.

Don’t think KJP would pass the test either.

Who needs Congress when we have Joe Biden?

Vote Joe and Hunter 2024!

In other words, they’re not really going to do anything, but they’ll talk shit like they do.

More hidden taxes on the poor, less freedom for us, big money to their cronies. Crony Environmentalism.

Do we have any idea how much the Green Agenda costs? Total fraud

Environmental-Industrial Complex grist for the mill, as usual. And now we’re being offered an Office of Environmental Justice in the White House. Heaven help this poor country of ours. What will be announced next? Let’s hope that the next president can rescind all of these unnecessary “offices” and initiatives.

What a surprise! Another BS bill that will do the opposite of its title. So the old rectal prolapse is going to bring “environmental justice for all”? How? By taking us back to the 12th century while he and the rest of our “leaders” enjoy all they’re attempting to take away from us peons? Hey Joe, slap a solar panel on top of Air Force one and take off on a cloudy day….then we’ll talk. Lying POS.
