MCEA Staff blog regularly about current environmental issues and how they relate to MCEA's work.
Excellent Last Week Tonight episode, where John Oliver addresses our ongoing lead problem. MCEA has pushed for lower health action levels for lead. As we all know from Flint, there are issues throughout the country with lead contamination in water pipes, but the more serious problem remains ingestion of lead paint. He points out the hypocrisy of members of Congress expressing "concern" about lead in Flint, while they vote to cut spending on lead abatement every year.
