As the White House was preparing to implement deep cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency earlier this month, Mustafa Ali, head of the Office on Environmental Justice, resigned. A week later, his motivation for departing became clear, when President Trump released a hardline budget draft that called for slashing EPA funding by 31 per cent, and eliminating as many as 3200 agency jobs. Ali's resignation, and the ensuing budget draft, are disturbing signs that America's poor and people of colour are going to continue suffering disproportionately from pollution under Trump. Sadly, that's nothing new.
