Amid pressure from advocates, state sues EPA over regulations rollback

“The Trump Administration can not give industries the green light to ignore critical environmental and public health laws, especially during a public health crisis,” James said in a statement Wednesday. “The EPA’s non-enforcement policy puts our already damaged public health in danger by freely allowing pollution from big corporations."

We fought back and we won!

NY Attorney General James and a coalition of nine other states across the US joined forces today to sue the Trump Administration for their suspension of environmental enforcement laws due to the COVID-19 crisis. This lawsuit comes shortly after a letter was sent to the NYSAG from over 50 environmental, labor and community organizations, who urged for legal action after foundational environmental laws were suspended in March.

New Research Links Air Pollution to Higher Coronavirus Death Rates

Research has linked air pollution to higher coronavirus death rates. A nationwide study has found that counties with even slightly higher levels of long-term air pollution are seeing larger numbers of Covid-19 deaths. And, the EPA just suspended the enforcement of polluters.

Attention! DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos, who plans to reward one of the largest Trump donor's in our region with millions in tax breaks, refuses to acknowledge that he has the power to make polluters pay for Tonawanda Coke's clean up.

If Seggos wants to talk about what's shameful, he should get back to protecting New Yorkers' health and dignity instead of lining their cronies’ pocketbooks. Join us on twitter and tweet at @BasilSeggos

Clean Air’s Response to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic - The Clean Air Coalition of W.N.Y.

As we watch how this pandemic is affecting our brothers, sisters and siblings here in Western New York and around the globe, our hearts ache and our anxieties are high. We are all worried for our elders, our immunocompromised and housing insecure people, and those feelings of anxiety are real and valid. We at Clean Air know so well what it is to care for one another and demand action from governmental officials and other institutions when our health, dignity and safety are on the line. This unprecedented time in our collective history is no different. -- Read Clean Air's full response to Covid-19 below.

At Tonawanda Coke, one toxic cleanup turns into four

"This should be one site, a state Superfund site or a federal Superfund site," said Judith Enck, a former regional administrator with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. "I've been there and this is one heavily contaminated site, especially near the river."

Enck called the state's mixed approach "baffling" and asked, "Why would you use state tax credits when you have a known polluter?" via The Buffalo News https://buffalonews.com/2020/02/18/at-tonawanda-coke-there-are-four-cleanups-not-one/

From Weirton West Virginia. Quite a large cloud of particulates and probably carcinogenic material as the steel production basic oxygen plant (BOP) steals its final breath from our atmosphere
Tonawanda Coke today 7PM taken from the Grand Island bridge. Offensive smell very noticeable as I rode the bike trial back to Buffalo. Smelled like the 1960s when I was a kid.

Has anyone looked into the air quality due to all the construction in parts of Buffalo.? I have live at Artspace on Main St. for 10 years surrounded with nonstop demolition and construction and have asthma now. Both activities produce different particulates and I was wondering if any monitoring has been done.
