Flint and it's Connection to Politics

Nick Lyon is set to face trial about his failure to report the status of the dangerous Flint water with a new witness who claims that he started asking questions early on about the dangers of the water. Lyon, who was the head of the Department of Health and Human Services in Michigan, is faced with involuntary manslaughter and other charges. There are many questions that come to mind that can be discussed based on this complicated situation.

Environmental Safety Concerns for Michigan Schools

On Monday, September 20th, Democratic lawmakers in Michigan proposed a bill package which would improve the classroom environment at schools in the state. The main goals of the bill package are to test water and air quality in Michigan schools, along with creating a task force focused on environmental education. Most importantly, the proposed bill works towards helping local schools improve health for their students and staff. This is important because it’s hard for children to learn, and adults to work in an unhealthy environment.

Enbridge Pipeline 5

As of yesterday (9/19/17), a state panel has appointed a Michigan researcher (Guy Meadows) who has past ties with Enbridge to complete a risk analysis on pipeline 5. The panel means for the analysis to be an independent investigation. Guy Meadows, who is a member of the state’s pipeline safety panel and Great Lakes Research Panel at Michigan Tech University, will be appointing more than a dozen top university researchers to conduct the analysis. The panel selected Meadows because of past ties with Enbridge.

The Great Lakes Pipeline

The Great Lakes Pipeline has created much conversation in recents years. Because the 645 mile Line 5 pipeline transports 540,000 barrels of crude oil per day, it appears to be a crucial medium of transportation of oil from Canada to the United States. However, the portion of the pipeline running underneath a fifth of the world's fresh water is at high risk for leaking. This concern is furthered through conversations with the engineers who constructed the pipeline over 64 years ago. At the time of construction, the pipeline was built to last only 50 years.
