Support the Mar-a-Lago Dump for Fossil Fuel Sludge and Nuclear Waste

by Glen Anderson

Trump wants to massively increase oil drilling, coal mining, nuclear power, and nuclear weapons. All of these would massively increase the amounts of sludge and wastes from those nuclear and fossil fuel operations. The wastes will need to go somewhere. Since Trump is so enthusiastic about those, I’m proposing a gigantic toxic waste dump right next door to his Mar-a-Lago luxury resort in Florida.

Before the Trump era, the Environmental Protection Agency would have prevented such a project. But Trump and Scott Pruitt, his appointed EPA Administrator, have been eliminating environmental protections and converting that agency into the Environmental Pollution Agency, so we can count on the new EPA’s full support.

Trump’s extreme narcissism and pathological inability to feel empathy for anyone else make the Mar-a-Lago site ironically well suited for such an extremely toxic dump of wastes from his mania for coal, oil, and nuclear projects. He has been eager to destroy other people’s ecosystems elsewhere, poison other people’s drinking water sources, and so forth. Let’s see what happens when realities occur close to his own property. Will this be a “teachable moment” for him? Will he suddenly discover some NIMBY (“Not In My Back Yard”) feelings?
