SNIPPET:

Climate is Superfund Kryptonite

Climate change will put at least 60 percent of the country's Superfund sites at risk from flooding and other climate impacts, according to a report from the Government Accountability Office obtained by the AP. The report, released today, calls on EPA chief Andrew Wheeler to directly address how the agency will deal with climate change as part of its responsibility to protect Superfund sites. Of the 1,571 sites the GAO examined, 945 are at risk: 783 are at risk from flooding, 234 vulnerable to increased wildfires and 187 at risk from storm surge from intense hurricanes.  "By refusing to address the worsening impacts of climate change – from flooding to wildfires to more frequent extreme weather events – at our nation’s Superfund sites, this EPA is putting public health at risk," Sen. Tom Carper (D-DE) said. (AP)
