“It’s like socialism cubed and for people who overwhelmingly vote Republican.”

“The government is and will continue testing chemicals on animals – it’ll just be human animals. Rhetorically speaking, it seems like EPA is showing more concerns for lab rats than the people the agency is charged with protecting.”

“Changing diets is hard; changing how we farm to reduce emissions and store carbon is easy. Simply rejoining the Paris Accord – without a credible plan to meet even tougher targets – is not enough.”

“Congress should not wait for President Trump’s EPA to act. The final NDAA must quickly end the Defense Department’s use of PFAS in firefighting foam and food packaging, and kick-start efforts to clean up legacy PFAS pollution.”

“It’s long past time for Congress to act. Consumers have the right to know whether these products, widely used by American kids, are contaminated with a known carcinogen that is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans.”
- Scott Faber
“These are companies that knew these chemicals were toxic, knew they built up in blood, knew they had a long half-life in the human body, and failed to tell anyone. They didn’t tell their neighbors, they didn’t tell their workers, they certainly didn’t tell the government officials charged with regulating this risk.”

“The detection tells us that military members have likely been drinking contaminated water for decades. And it’s only in the last few years that the idea of taking steps to ensure that the water being served on base is being filtered. No effort is being made to alert service members they may have been drinking contaminated water for decades.”
