US to dismantle environmental laws with Covid-19 pretext

By Ilaria Grasso Macola

Using the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic as a pretext, the US Government is weakening environmental protections, according to the Guardian.

In the wake of the November elections, the Trump administration is putting in place a series of measures to disregard environmental laws. These include easing standards for fuel efficiency in new cars and freezing rules on soot air pollution, leasing public soil to oil and gas companies and proposing to drop requirements for liquified natural gas terminals.
