Lawsuit says outdated EPA flaring rules have led to more pollution

A lawsuit against the EPA is focused on regulations that target flaring at petrochemical facilities, gasoline terminals, natural gas processing plants, compressor stations and solid waste landfills.

 

Ten environmental organizations, including Air Alliance Houston and Environment Texas, recently sued the Environmental Protection Agency, claiming that it failed to bolster flaring rules.

 

The suit claims that the EPA’s failure to update the standards for flaring, the practice of burning off excess gases to prevent more toxic pollution to escape, has increased emissions. The regulations target flaring at petrochemical facilities, gasoline terminals, natural gas processing plants, compressor stations and solid waste landfills.

 

The environmental groups say operators don’t always conduct the practice correctly, leading to the release of gases that endanger public health and contribute to climate change.

 

“Time and time again, EPA has admitted that flares operating under these outdated standards can release many times more toxic air pollutants into local communities than estimated,” Adam Kron, senior attorney for the Environmental Integrity Project, the leading plaintiff in the suit, said in a statement. “This can cause serious harm to public health.”

Why Japanese Businesses Are So Good at Surviving Crises?

 

Harvard Business School professor Hirotaka Takeuchi, explains why Japanese Companies fair better during times of crisis. They are dedicated to responding to the needs of employees and the community first, all with the moral purpose of serving the common good. Less important for these companies, he says, was pursuing layoffs and other cost-cutting measures in the face of a crippled economy.

“Many Japanese companies are not that popular with Wall Street types because they are not as focused on gaining superior profitability and maximizing shareholder value,” he says. “They talk consistently instead about creating lasting changes in society.”

How Manufacturers Can Increase Wages & Upward Mobility

About 30 million American workers without four-year college degrees have the skills necessary for jobs that pay 70% more than their current roles, according to a new study cited by The New York Times (subscription).

The Manufacturing Institute Vice President of Strategic Initiatives Gardner Carrick states that “We know that less than half the people that earn a manufacturing certification go to work in manufacturing. Those people have the skills to work in manufacturing, but are not doing so. And we know that is costing them between $10K–$15K in earnings every year.”

The Trump administration on Wednesday finalized a rule that could prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from strengthening measures to combat airpollution and the climate crisis in the future.
