Rollback of environment regs 'really big'

Editor:

I am writing over my concern about the rolling back of President Obama's energy regulations. President Trump signed the order and said "It will create jobs in the oil and gas sector and bring jobs coal jobs back." The facts are jobs have been dwindling for some time now due to cleaner innovation in energy. There is no such thing as clean coal.

I urge citizens to fight this devastating executive order that will pollute our waterways and air. It will be detrimental to the health of our children and grandchildren. The fishing industry will suffer as well as our National Forests and wildlife. Honestly I can't think of anything that wouldn't be impacted by this rollback of protection of the EPA.

There are so many more issues since President Trump took office, but they seem small compared to sustainable life on Earth. This is really "big."
