In mid-January, the Trump Administration released a proposed plan to roll back the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The proposal would cause great harm to God’s creation and public health. NEPA is a bedrock environmental law which requires federal agencies evaluate the environmental impact of each new project. The evaluation must meet standards that are in place to protect public safety and the environment. The plan changes the analysis process to make it easier for federal agencies to move forward with projects such as pipelines and highways without thorough analysis of the environmental impact. The proposal severely shortens the environmental impact evaluation period, limits the length of impact study documents, and limits the discussion on cumulative, indirect, and direct effects of the proposed project. As Christians we have a moral responsibility to care for the health and well-being of the people and the planet. This plan does the opposite. We urge you to submit a public comment to voice your views on opposing these NEPA changes. We have provided a pre-written comment but encourage you to edit and add on to the piece to make it your own voice and opinion.
