“With Debra Shore’s appointment as Regional Administrator here in the Great Lakes, we are looking forward to getting down to work on the issues unique to the Midwest and Great Lakes region. We are glad to have this appointment filled so that we can move forward with the urgent issues that face the region. We also thank our former colleague and strong ally Micah Ragland, who was also in the running for Regional Administrator and who we endorsed as our choice to lead the Region, for being willing to step forward as a candidate. We are grateful that Micah has committed to remain a bold voice for racial and environmental justice in Region 5.

“We are hopeful that a new day is dawning at EPA. We had four dark years under the Trump administration, from the erasure of climate change action, to outright attacks on the working conditions of EPA employees that imperiled our ability to protect the Great Lakes, and that hurt frontline communities. We renew our firm commitment to the principles we fought for during those four years. We are hopeful that Administrator Shore will stand with us in rebuilding Region 5, as we continue protecting the precious environmental resources of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin and 35 tribes here in Region 5.”

The Climate Crisis Is Worse Than You Can Imagine. Here’s What Happens If You Try. – Peter Kalmus, out of his mind, stumbled back toward the car. It was all happening. All the stuff he’d been trying to get others to see, and failing to get others to see — it was all here. The day before, when his family started their Labor Day backpacking trip along the oak-lined dry creek bed in Romero Canyon, in the mountains east of Santa Barbara, the temperature had been 105 degrees. Now it was 110 degrees, and under his backpack, his “large mammalian self,” as Peter called his body, was more than just overheating. He was melting down. Everything felt wrong. His brain felt wrong and the planet felt wrong, and everything that lived on the planet felt wrong, off-kilter, in the wrong place.
