          "A Life Changing Event": 3 Million To Lose Power, Hog Farmers Panic As Hurricane Set To Smash Into Coast      Cache   Translate Page      

With Hurricane Florence barreling down on North Carolina, local industries - especially hog farmers - are preparing for the worst. Meanwhile, millions are at risk of losing power as they brace for a historic weather event.

According to David Fountain, Duke Energy’s president for North Carolina, up to 3 million homes  and businesses are at risk of losing power as a result of the hurricane, which in a worst case scenario would come onshore at Wilmington, North Carolina and move through Raleigh, Greensboro and Charlotte.

Natural devastation aside, there is the crippling impact the storm will have on local businesses: one of the biggest industries in the storm's path is hog farming. Hundreds of farms are in the direct path of the hurricane and are scrambling to prepare for its impact by stockpiling feed and moving their livestock, according to this Wall Street Journal article. Preparations to manage millions of gallons of hog waste are also underway. 

The worst case scenario for North Carolina, with its 2,100 hog farms and 9 million pigs and hogs, would be to cripple the local hog farming industry. The potential devastation for hog farmers would be a deja vu to what happened after Hurricane Floyd struck in 1999. The result was the destruction of many farms, including flooding, dead livestock and waste leaking into waterways.  

Preparations for the worst have been aided by a dry summer which has, in turn, kept waste lagoon levels low. Power is also of the essence, because farmers are at risk of losing livestock if their barns can’t be ventilated.

Still, some are optimistic: the CEO of the North Carolina Pork Council, Andy Curliss, believes that farmers will be prepared this time around: "They’ll deal with what’s thrown at them,” he told the Wall Street Journal. 

Gaye Crowther owns a farm outside of Tabor City, N.C, and is getting ready by purchasing fuel for generators and actively managing her waste lagoons. She’s also filling feed bins with corn and soy beans in an amount that should give animals two weeks worth of food to eat. In addition to worrying about the livestock, she also has to worry about her 29 employees.

“It's stressful. You’ve got the people that work for you that need to be safe. You’ve got the hogs that you want to take care of.”

Another example is Goldsboro Milling from Goldsboro, N.C., which is also stockpiling feed. This is what the director of human resources told the WSJ:

 “We actually have a war room where we’ve got people from the production side and logistics so they can identify farms that are running low on feed.”

Smithfield Foods said that it is going out of its way to protect workers and animals at it’s 250 farms that it owns, as well as at the 1500 contract farms it has. Like the others, they are also monitoring and lowering waste levels.

The waste lagoons in North Carolina have often been a point of contention for environmentalists, as there are more than 4,000 of them in the state and they each often hold "millions of gallons" of manure. In 1999, six lagoons saw breaches, which resulted in waste moving into the water supply. The state ended up buying 43 farms, including 100 lagoons that were located in flood planes.

In 2016, the state saw a similar, but less disastrous outcome in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. There was a partial breach of one lagoon that hadn’t had hogs near it for years.

And here is the problem: Curliss told the WSJ that lagoons across the state can handle 25 inches of rain. But according to forecasts from the National Hurricane Center, 40 inches could be expected from Florence.

Independent surveyors will reportedly be out looking at farms over the next couple of days to measure what impact this hurricane will have. People like Will Hendrick, who is a staff attorney with the Waterkeeper Alliance, also went out and surveyed after events like Hurricane Matthew. Back then, he found that floodwaters in eight counties had infiltrated 10 hog farms and 14 lagoons that hold millions of gallons of waste.

Meanwhile, assuming they are not drinking pig shit, local residents may have bigger problems as they remain in the dark for weeks. Duke Energy said it was mobilizing about 20,000 workers to help with keeping power on during the storm. Mollie Gore, a spokeswoman for Santee-Cooper told Bloomberg that "it may take days" before line workers are able to start getting power restored, telling them “We can’t get a bucket truck out there when tropical storm winds are still blowing.”

Duke Energy's president told Bloomberg: "This is no ordinary storm, and people could be without power for a very long time -- not days but weeks. Hurricane Florence will be a life changing event for many people in the Carolinas."

          How to Cope With Irregular Periods, As Told by Women Who Experience Them      Cache   Translate Page      

Most people don’t talk about their periods, which is weird, because most of us get them. About half of the world’s population has this shared experience, but it’s hugely stigmatized. If you asked any woman (no matter her age) about her period, she’ll probably tell you that she has a lot of questions.

We know that periods come every month on the same day – or they’re supposed to anyway. We’ve been told that after the first year or so of getting our periods, our cycles will become regular and we’ll have “our time of the month.” But what if that’s not the case? What if you don’t get your period every month? What if it’s twice a month? What if it lasts for one day one month and two weeks the next? That’s the case for a huge majority of women.

Irregular periods are actually more common than you’d think. So, if your period is irregular, don’t worry too much. You’re not alone. It’s pretty rare for a woman to gets her period at the same time, on the same day, every month. While irregular periods on their own aren’t generally dangerous, they can be symptoms of some deeper problems in your body—like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or endometriosis. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, PCOS affects 6 to 12 percent of all women, and American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists reports that endometriosis affects one in ten women and irregular periods in general impacts many more. Really, you aren’t alone.

But even though irregularity might be common, it’s not trivial. It can be a big issue, and the best way to figure out what’s going on with you is to see a doctor.

“I feel like the best way to control irregular periods is to have a candid talk with your gynecologist. I know it can feel intimidating to be open about your periods with your doctor, especially if you're seeing a new OBGYN, but OBs are used to hearing all the ugly and gross details about periods” says Chelsea Jackson, a junior at Iowa State University.

No matter how uncomfortable it may be, you need to see a doctor with any questions you may have. The treatments they can provide are almost foolproof in how well they work to regulate periods.

If you’re still on the fence about whether or not your irregularity seems severe enough to see a doctor, or if any treatments can really help, listen to what these college women have to say:

"So during my freshman year of college, I had my period three times in six weeks. I think it was due to the change in lifestyle and overall stress that freshman year brings. Anyways, after the third time I got it I hysterically called my mom because I was freaking out as I know I was getting my period an unnatural amount of times. So, she scheduled me a meeting with a gyno and we came to the conclusion that the best way to get in on track was for me to start birth control. She prescribed me the lowest dosage and since then my period has always been on track!" -Jana Brzovski, Marist College

"I got my period in third grade (super early!), and from then until about 10th grade it was always irregular. It never came on the same day of the month, and sometimes it came on an entirely different week. I always had really bad cramps, but during November of my 10th grade year, I ended up in the emergency room from how severe they were. I was diagnosed with endometriosis and put on birth control as treatment. Since then, my period has been regular and much more manageable. I really encourage anyone who has an irregular period or bad cramps to see a doctor! It’s so important that we as women see doctors that take our symptoms and pain seriously so we can get an accurate diagnosis and treatment." -Nicole Wills, University of Central Florida

"I stopped getting my period for about a year when I was a sophomore in high school. I found out that my estrogen levels were low (I wasn't on birth control), and so I started eating more foods with estrogen in them, like soy, vegetables, chickpeas, etc. and it came back on it's own. I had blood work done by my doctor to figure out what was going on with my hormone levels." -Meghan McMahon, Colgate University

"I used to experience highly irregular periods, I even once went 6 months without having one. At that point I was tired of never knowing when I would have a period, and worrying that something could be wrong with me. So, I went to the gynecologist and had a check up to get birth control.  I’ve now been on the pill for three years and it has made my periods so much more bearable. I know exactly when I will start and usually how long it will last. I hardly ever have cramps, and my periods are lighter than they've ever been." -Sydney Keith, University of Texas

"I discovered I had PCOS when I was about 13. PCOS is a hormone condition, and one symptom is never getting your period. I rarely had a period after my first one at age 11 (another PCOS symptom is early puberty), and when I did, it would be so heavy and painful from months of building up that I could barely leave my bed, let alone go to school. We went to an endocrinologist, who diagnosed the PCOS based off my symptoms. I went on the combination pill to regulate my periods so that I would no longer have to miss school for them or live in suspense wondering when it would come, and it has been an absolute lifesaver for me!" -Colleen, Northwestern University

"I’ve had irregular periods since I was about 12 years old! The doctors wanted to put me on birth control at such a young age but my mom always said no. But the summer before college I went to the OBGYN and was put on birth control to help with [the irregularity], but I ended up finding out I had PCOS and my irregular periods was part of the diagnosis!" -Kashawna Guy, University of North Carolina at Greensboro

"I've dealt with irregular periods for as long as I've been getting them. Some months I wouldn't get my period at all, other times they would be for weeks. Several fainting episodes when I was 16 led to a gynecologist appointment where I was told I had a hormone imbalance. I was prescribed birth control for a year, [but I stopped] taking them after a few months. My periods became regular and stayed regular for a while, up until recently. My irregular periods were accompanied with bloatedness and anxiety about not getting my period. One trip to the gynecologist later I was told I have PCOS. I guess moral of the story is sometimes irregular periods can just be your body funding it's rhythm, but it's always best to consult with a medical professional because you never know." -Fadiyah Rabin, University of Cape Town

"I had irregular periods for a long time, and ended up going to see my OB-GYN because it was causing so many problems in my life. It took two years, but we finally got a diagnosis: endometriosis. It took another two years after that to find a medication that would help me control my periods. Now, I am back on track and have very light flows for only a couple days a month! It took a long time to get there, but I am so glad that I made the commitment to myself and my health, and was able to find a medication that worked." -Audrey Lent, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo

So, the moral of the story is this: If you have irregular periods, you’re not alone. But just because it’s something that many women experience doesn’t mean you have to just sit back and deal with it. Make an appointment with your doctor to make sure nothing is seriously wrong, and hopefully you can get your periods working like clockwork.

"A Life Changing Event": 3 Million To Lose Power, 
Hog Farmers Panic As Hurricane Set To Smash Into Coast"
by Tyler Durden

"With Hurricane Florence barreling down on North Carolina, local industries - especially hog farmers - are preparing for the worst. Meanwhile, millions are at risk of losing power as they brace for a historic weather event. According to David Fountain, Duke Energy’s president for North Carolina, up to 3 million homes  and businesses are at risk of losing power as a result of the hurricane, which in a worst case scenario would come onshore at Wilmington, North Carolina and move through Raleigh, Greensboro and Charlotte.
Natural devastation aside, there is the crippling impact the storm will have on local businesses: one of the biggest industries in the storm's path is hog farming. Hundreds of farms are in the direct path of the hurricane and are scrambling to prepare for its impact by stockpiling feed and moving their livestock, according to this Wall Street Journal article. Preparations to manage millions of gallons of hog waste are also underway. 

The worst case scenario for North Carolina, with its 2,100 hog farms and 9 million pigs and hogs, would be to cripple the local hog farming industry. The potential devastation for hog farmers would be a deja vu to what happened after Hurricane Floyd struck in 1999. The result was the destruction of many farms, including flooding, dead livestock and waste leaking into waterways.   Preparations for the worst have been aided by a dry summer which has, in turn, kept waste lagoon levels low. Power is also of the essence, because farmers are at risk of losing livestock if their barns can’t be ventilated.

Still, some are optimistic: the CEO of the North Carolina Pork Council, Andy Curliss, believes that farmers will be prepared this time around: "They’ll deal with what’s thrown at them,” he told the Wall Street Journal. 

Gaye Crowther owns a farm outside of Tabor City, N.C, and is getting ready by purchasing fuel for generators and actively managing her waste lagoons. She’s also filling feed bins with corn and soy beans in an amount that should give animals two weeks worth of food to eat. In addition to worrying about the livestock, she also has to worry about her 29 employees. “It's stressful. You’ve got the people that work for you that need to be safe. You’ve got the hogs that you want to take care of.”

Another example is Goldsboro Milling from Goldsboro, N.C., which is also stockpiling feed. This is what the director of human resources told the WSJ: “We actually have a war room where we’ve got people from the production side and logistics so they can identify farms that are running low on feed.” Smithfield Foods said that it is going out of its way to protect workers and animals at its 250 farms that it owns, as well as at the 1500 contract farms it has. Like the others, they are also monitoring and lowering waste levels.

The waste lagoons in North Carolina have often been a point of contention for environmentalists, as there are more than 4,000 of them in the state and they each often hold "millions of gallons" of manure. In 1999, six lagoons saw breaches, which resulted in waste moving into the water supply. The state ended up buying 43 farms, including 100 lagoons that were located in flood planes. In 2016, the state saw a similar, but less disastrous outcome in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. There was a partial breach of one lagoon that hadn’t had hogs near it for years.

And here is the problem: Curliss told the WSJ that lagoons across the state can handle 25 inches of rain. But according to forecasts from the National Hurricane Center, 40 inches could be expected from Florence.

Independent surveyors will reportedly be out looking at farms over the next couple of days to measure what impact this hurricane will have. People like Will Hendrick, who is a staff attorney with the Waterkeeper Alliance, also went out and surveyed after events like Hurricane Matthew. Back then, he found that floodwaters in eight counties had infiltrated 10 hog farms and 14 lagoons that hold millions of gallons of waste.

Meanwhile, assuming they are not drinking pig sh*t, local residents may have bigger problems as they remain in the dark for weeks. Duke Energy said it was mobilizing about 20,000 workers to help with keeping power on during the storm. Mollie Gore, a spokeswoman for Santee-Cooper told Bloomberg that "it may take days" before line workers are able to start getting power restored, telling them “We can’t get a bucket truck out there when tropical storm winds are still blowing.”

Duke Energy's president told Bloomberg: "This is no ordinary storm, and people could be without power for a very long time - not days but weeks. Hurricane Florence will be a life changing event for many people in the Carolinas."

Excited fans of TREMONTI are going to have to wait a couple of days longer for the band to hit to the road in support of their latest Napalm Records release, "A Dying Machine". Due to the unforeseen weather situation being created by Hurricane Florence, the start of the tour has been postponed. At this time, the September 13 show opening for SEETHER in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina at the House Of Blues has been canceled. Refunds for tickets for this date are available at the point of purchase. The headline show that was scheduled for September 14 in Greensboro, North Carolina at the Cone Denim Entertainment Center has been rescheduled for October 13 and fans with tickets marked September 14 will be honored on the new date. Full tour information, VIP packages and ticket purchase links can be found at MarkTremonti.com. Along with the news of the canceled dates, drummer Garrett Whitlock will not be touring with TREMONTI due to a necessary leave of absence for undisclosed personal reasons. The TREMONTI camp appreciates all of their fan support during this time and no other information will be forthcoming in regards to this matter. Drummer Ryan Bennett, a longtime friend of guitarist Eric Friedman, will be filling in on drums when the tour kicks off in Philadelphia on September 15. "A Dying Machine" was released on June 8 via Napalm Records. The disc was produced by Michael "Elvis" Baskette, who has helmed all previous TREMONTI albums along with ALTER BRIDGE's last four long-players. "A Dying Machine" is the first concept album of Tremonti's career and the music is inspired by a story that came to Mark while on the last ALTER BRIDGE tour. During that time, the epic title track "A Dying Machine" was born. The story, which is being turned into a full-length work of fiction authored by Mark Tremonti and John Shirley, takes place at the turn of the next century where humans and fabricated beings called "vessels" are trying to co-exist.

          Xaviera Simmons: Sundown Comes to David Castillo Gallery      Cache   Translate Page      

David Castillo Gallery presents Sundown, Xaviera Simmons' fifth solo exhibition with the gallery. The show features all new text paintings, photography, and sculpture.

Many communities in the United States remain "sundown towns," where Black Americans are not welcome after dark. The works assembled in Sundown draw from the multitude of threads which form the foundations of the contemporary American narrative - slavery, colonial America, the Antebellum South, the Jim Crow era, Black reconstruction, Black migration, and the Civil Rights era.

The exhibition explores these legacies and the ways in which systemic prejudices have rendered major aspects of the American narrative virtually invisible; the effects of which reverberate into the present day.

In this rigorously researched body of work, Simmons engages with historical imagery, layering archival black-and-white images of American life across scenes that she as shifting characters inhabits.

?Sundown is to be considered in a chronological manner. The exhibition begins with Simmons' signature text-based paintings, drawing from and abstracting language found in the diaries and observations of Christopher Columbus' fateful encounter with the landscape now labeled America.

Simmons' text-based paintings render Columbus' initial observations into poetic visual gestures where text acting as image renders the scenes Columbus encountered with sensuality and beauty.

Simmons' text strips away and molds aspects of Columbus's diary language to reveal textual images that are idyllic yet loaded with an inherent historical conflict.

?Using floral backdrops and patterns Simmons' large-scale photographs seeks to both exclaim history as well as contemporize the narrative; to hold the narrative and to add to our complex contemporary practice of prioritizing image as narrator.

The furniture based sculptural works in Sundown speak to the advantages that have been lost specifically to the lineage of the descendants of American slavery; to the anonymous Black American craftsmen and women who could have historically designed and built these items.

These sculptural works, according to Simmons, are a hypothesis rendered in luscious furs, velvets, and leathers.

The works are tasked with the question, what would our contemporary landscape look like had Black Americans been able to create continued generational stability within America without the consistent threat of disenfranchisement?

What would our language, art history, architecture and overall American visual, sculptural and domestic landscapes look like had Black Americans had an opportunity as a group to collectively contemplate and capitalize from such things as craft and creativity with free will and freedom from threat over the span of the country's lifetime or at least since President Lincoln's "Emancipation Proclamation"?

The sculptural and photographic works in this exhibition seek to re-engage the historical narrative to recover some of the possibilities of this vision.

Xaviera Simmons is included in numerous upcoming exhibitions and projects including "The Restless Earth" curated by Massimiliano Gioni, at the Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C. (2019); Miami-Dade County Art in Public Places Commission (2018-2019), among many others. Recent solo exhibitions include "Convene" at SculptureCenter, New York; "Overlay" at Radcliffe Institute at Harvard University; "The Gold Miner's Mission to Dwell on the Tide Line" at The Museum of Modern Art- The Modern Window, New York; and "CODED" at The Kitchen, New York.

Simmons is a recipient of Agnes Gund's">Gund's Art for Justice Award (2018); Foundation for Contemporary Art Award; Louis Comfort Tiffany Award; former artist-in-residence at The Studio Museum in Harlem; and the Denniston Hill 2018 Distinguished Performance Artist Award. Current and recent museum group exhibitions include The Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro; MassArt, Boston; The Renaissance Society, Chicago; Seattle Art Museum; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Nasher Museum of Art, Durham; Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus; Prospect.4, New Orleans; Fondazione Nicola Trussardi, Milan; Studio Museum in Harlem; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; Cincinnati Art Museum; Museum of the African Diaspora, San Francisco, among others.

Simmons' work has been featured and reviewed in many publications over the years, most recently in ArtNews, The Art Newspaper, Artnet News, Artforum, Hyperallergic, New York Magazine, Bloomberg, Paper Magazine, The New York Times and others.

?The artist's works are in major museum and private collections including The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Deutsche Bank, New York; UBS, New York; The Guggenheim Museum, New York; The Agnes Gund Art Collection, New York; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; The Studio Museum in Harlem; ICA Miami; Perez Art Museum Miami; The Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro; The Nasher Museum of Art, Durham; The High Museum, Atlanta; The Rubell Family Collection, Miami; among others.

?The artist received her BFA from Bard College (2004) after spending two years on a walking pilgrimage retracing the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade with Buddhist Monks. She completed the Whitney Museum's Independent Study Program in Studio Art (2005) while simultaneously completing a two-year actor-training conservatory with The Maggie Flanigan Studio.

          Here's a Hurricane Florence environmental justice story that media outlets need to tell      Cache   Translate Page      


Melissa Joskow / Media Matters

A handful of news outlets are reporting about the danger of coal ash and hog manure spilling into North Carolina's waterways when Hurricane Florence hits the state. But so far they're missing an important part of the story -- that African-Americans and other communities of color could be hit particularly hard by such pollution. They're also failing to note that the Trump administration has been loosening regulations and oversight in ways that could make spills of coal ash and hog waste more likely.

The dangers of coal ash and hog manure pollution

North Carolina is home to 31 coal ash pits that power company Duke Energy uses to store an estimated 111 million tons of toxic waste produced by coal-fired power plants. North Carolina is also home to thousands of manure pits, known euphemistically as "lagoons," that store approximately 10 billion pounds of wet waste generated each year by swine, poultry, and cattle operations in the state. This information came from Bloomberg, one of the first outlets to report that Florence could cause the waste pits to spill and create serious environmental and public health risks. The Associated Press also reported on the threats:

The heavy rain expected from Hurricane Florence could flood hog manure pits, coal ash dumps and other industrial sites in North Carolina, creating a noxious witches’ brew of waste that might wash into homes and threaten drinking water supplies.

Coal ash pits and hog waste dumps have both leaked and flooded in past years, causing devastating spills in North Carolina -- sometimes in the wake of hurricanes.

Hurricane Floyd, which struck North Carolina in 1999 as a Category 2 storm, washed 120 million gallons of hog waste into rivers, Rolling Stone later reported. As AP noted this week, that was just one part of the mess caused by Floyd:

The bloated carcasses of hundreds of thousands of hogs, chickens and other drowned livestock bobbed in a nose-stinging soup of fecal matter, pesticides, fertilizer and gasoline so toxic that fish flopped helplessly on the surface to escape it. Rescue workers smeared Vick’s Vapo-Rub under their noses to try to numb their senses against the stench.

After Floyd, North Carolina taxpayers bought out and closed down 43 hog factory farms located in floodplains, aiming to prevent a repeat disaster. But in 2016, when Hurricane Matthew hit the Carolinas as a Category 1 storm, at least 14 manure lagoons still flooded.

Soon after Matthew, The New York Times’ editorial board warned that such flooding could become more of a threat in the future as storms are supercharged by climate change:

In states where hog farmers use waste lagoons, like North Carolina and Illinois, flooding is a serious hazard that may become more frequent as climate change leads to more severe storms.

Unless North Carolina and other states require agriculture companies to change their waste-disposal methods, what happened after Hurricane Matthew will happen again.

In this week’s Bloomberg article, the head of the North Carolina Pork Council dismissed the significance of the 14 breaches in 2016 and downplayed the threat of spills triggered by Hurricane Florence.

There's an environmental justice component to this story

Even if they're not widespread, hog waste spills can still be devastating to those who live nearby -- and many of the unfortunate neighbors are low-income people of color.

Two epidemiology researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill published a paper in 2014 with a straightforward title: "Industrial Hog Operations in North Carolina Disproportionately Impact African-Americans, Hispanics and American Indians." They wrote, "Overflow of waste pits during heavy rain events results in massive spills of animal waste into neighboring communities and waterways."

Tom Philpott explained more about that research in Mother Jones in 2017:

As the late University of North Carolina researcher Steve Wing has demonstrated, [North Carolina's industrial hog] operations are tightly clustered in a few counties on the coastal plain—the very part of the state that housed the most enslaved people prior to the Civil War. In the decades since, the region has retained the state’s densest population of rural African-American residents.

Even when hurricanes aren't on the horizon, activists are pushing to clean up industrial hog operations. “From acrid odors to polluted waterways, factory farms in North Carolina are directly harming some of our state’s most vulnerable populations, particularly low-income communities and communities of color,” Naeema Muhammad of the North Carolina Environmental Justice Network said last year.

Poor and rural communities of color are heavily affected by coal ash dumps as well. The New York Times reported last month on an environmental-justice campaign against coal ash pollution in North Carolina. Lisa Evans, a lawyer with the environmental group Earthjustice, told the Times, “Coal ash ponds are in rural areas, particularly in the Southeast. Those communities have less power and less of a voice.”

The Trump administration recently loosened rules on coal ash disposal

The first major rule finalized by Andrew Wheeler, acting head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), loosened Obama-era requirements for coal-ash disposal. The change, which will save the power industry millions of dollars a year, could lead to more dangerous pollution. The Washington Post reported on Wheeler’s move in July:

Avner Vengosh, a Duke University expert on the environmental impacts of coal ash, said that scaling back monitoring requirements, in particular, could leave communities vulnerable to potential pollution.

“We have very clear evidence that coal ash ponds are leaking into groundwater sources,” Vengosh said. “The question is, has it reached areas where people use it for drinking water? We just don’t know. That’s the problem.”

The Trump administration is also going easy on factory farms like the industrial hog operations in North Carolina. Civil Eats reported in February that there's “been a decline in the number of inspections and enforcement actions by the [EPA] against concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) since the final years of the Obama administration.” Last year, more than 30 advocacy groups filed a legal petition calling on Trump's EPA to tighten rules to protect communities from factory farms.

North Carolina Republicans aren't helping things either -- they've gone easy on coal plants and hog operations. And in 2012, the GOP-controlled state legislature actually passed a law banning state officials from considering the latest science regarding sea level rise when doing coastal planning. ABC reported on the development at the time:

The law was drafted in response to an estimate by the state's Coastal Resources Commission (CRC) that the sea level will rise by 39 inches in the next century, prompting fears of costlier home insurance and accusations of anti-development alarmism among residents and developers in the state's coastal Outer Banks region.

...

The bill's passage in June triggered nationwide scorn by those who argued that the state was deliberately blinding itself to the effects of climate change. In a segment on the "Colbert Report," comedian Stephen Colbert mocked North Carolina lawmakers' efforts as an attempt to outlaw science.

"If your science gives you a result you don't like, pass a law saying the result is illegal. Problem solved," he joked.

As Hurricane Florence bears down on North Carolina, journalists should make sure that their stories include the people who'll be hurt the most by waste spills and other impacts, as well as the businesses and lawmakers who have been making such environmental disasters much more likely to occur.
