"British fire with support from shore. Batteries forced the french to disengage after the first pass later that afternoon the french launched a second naval attack using all twelve ships of the line and focusing their wrath on british flagship prince of wales. The heavy assault on both sides led to some ship damage but casualties were relatively light. Neither side captured or sang any ships. After several hours the french once again disengaged the next morning d'estaing appeared to be preparing a third line of attack but then sailed away at the last minute that evening the french managed to land a force at gros islet bay several miles to the north on another part the island putting over seven thousand soldiers on the beaches. The french outnumbered british forces but the british had seized the high ground and had time to entrench. The french launched three major assaults against the british line but were repulsed. Each time taking hundreds of casualties after several weeks word arrived that a larger british fleet. Under admiral john byron was sailing down from newport to join with barrington's fleet. The french hearing this news boarded their ships and set sail back to martinique on september. Twenty ninth before. The larger british fleet arrived so as seventeen seventy eight ended.

"They turn their attention to the island of saint lucia. A just to the south of martinique saint lucia had a little more activity in early colonial era than dominica. The spanish explorers noted the island's existence as early as fifteen hundred but did not bother to settle it or do much of anything. Other than claim it was part of spain in the mid fifteen hundreds. The island became a base of operation for the famous french. Pirate fra swale leclerc in sixteen o five. An english ship got blown off course and decided to settle on saint lucia. The local natives spent the next few months attacking and raiding the colony within a few months. Two thirds of the inhabitants were dead and the remainder fled the island over the remainder of the century. Both england and france attempted to establish settlements on the island but were run off by the natives or by attack from the other country at one point. The french allowed the dutch to build a small fort on the island. But even that did not stabilize anything. By the end of the sixteen. Hundreds saint lucia was generally recognized as a french colony. Most of the time over a few periods in the eighteenth century france and britain declared it to be a neutral island where neither country claimed ownership but claims on the island never seen to remain permanent in the fifty years. Before the american revolution the island's status changed eight times after the seven years war. France regained.

"Hello and thank you for joining the american revolution this week. Episode two or three dominica and saint lucia. The french fleet under admiral disdain had come to america in july seventeen. Seventy eight as part of the new franco american alliance. France and britain had gone to war a few months earlier. France hope to use the war in america to take advantage of a weakened britain and recover some of the colonies that had lost to britain in the seven years war before the war. Some french leaders even hope that the north american colonies in rebellion might be willing to put themselves under the authority and protection of the king of france while it quickly became apparent that that would not happen. An independent north america would weaken britain and perhaps at least open up some valuable trading relationships with the control of north america seemingly off the table france focus more on the west indies. Or what we today. Call the caribbean island. Colonies brought immense amounts of wealth to whoever controlled them. Not gonna go through the exact breakdown of who controlled which islands since there are probably over one hundred little islands some of which were divided between multiple countries. These very frequently changed hands over the course of the eighteenth century of course at the time spain dominated the region with its control of cuba and santo domingo the island that today makes up haiti and the dominican republic spain also controlled almost all of the mainland. Around what we today call the gulf of mexico as well as central america spain had gotten their early at the end of the fifteenth century and dominated the region before other european powers even took an interest. Spanish officials had largely enslaved the local population but that population also very quickly died out. Mostly due to a lack of resistance to european diseases. Spain had no interest in colonizing these new lands with free spanish colonists rather spanish officials wanted to produce crops primarily sugar which grew well in this region for the benefit of europeans and for making massive profits maximizing profits meant keeping labor costs down allowing local free colonists to run. Local plantations would mean that most of the profits would go there instead. Spanish officials turn to african slavery as the primary labor force for these island colonies by the eighteenth century. All of the islands were dominated by african slave labor as other countries such as britain france and the netherlands claimed ownership of various islands. They also used african slave labor as the primary labor force on their islands as a result. These islands were producing a massive amount of wealth for the colonizers at very little cost for the labor force.

So Dominica interesting Island, if you're curious go look up YouTube videos of Dominica interesting cool culture. I like it and I just had no idea it even existed. Last topic of the day we had an F1 race on Sunday. I'm going to call it the Imola Grand Prix. It's got some other name that I can't pronounce it on the stupid Americans. I do my best. Say the race at Imola though. It's a narrow track. It's hard to pass. There's a lot of potential for contact. Meaning there's a lot of potential for having a yellow flag down a lot happened in this race. I was actually gearing up for a boring race and then I started watching I was like, why would I expect a boring race? It's never boring with F1. Even, you know, even if it's moments of no one's passing anybody for me. I enjoy that cuz there's always tension. So Mercedes won their seventh straight Constructors Championship by winning this race, they won they got 1st and 2nd not a shocker. It just interesting to be like Mercedez have been so so dominant for years. They are it's just it's impressive and deserves respect and you can say like they you know, they bought their wins, but you still got a job. Say like you may by wins, but it's still an impressive investment by Mercedes to say we value winning this much. We're going to pay this much money to dominate Formula One. Now I think the best moment of tension in this race was when there was a period where Max verstappen was stuck behind voucher botas and bottas had car damage apparently was a piece of a farmer least some I don't know what it was but it was red whatever whatever piece of metal was attached to that.

"The game we most fans remember. Andy Reid foremost is super bowl. Thirty nine and especially how the game finished up in the last six minutes. But let's set things up here just a little bit coming into Super Bowl all thirty nine. Both the Patriots and Eagles were the best teams in their conference. Both number one seeds both had tremendous seasons. The Patriots went fourteen and two that season season as they were looking for their third super bowl title in four years. Obviously Tom Brady was just beginning his run as the greatest quarterback of all time but he'd already established himself as a two time superbowl champion. And so the odds were stacked against the eagles a little bit in the Super Bowl although the eagles were far and away the best team team in the NFC that season having gone thirteen and three really they were essentially a one loss team. They lost to the Pittsburgh steelers in the middle of the season but they had clinched the number for one seat in the conference with two games left in the season and basically didn't play anybody in the final two games and that's why they went thirteen and three. The Eagles probably could have been a fifteen in one team if they'd actually played their starters in the final two games of the season but thirteen and three is nothing to sneeze at and it was certainly good enough to get them the number one seed in the playoffs The Eagles defeated the Minnesota Vikings rather handily in the NFC divisional round and then in the NFC championship game. As you heard me talk about on the last edition of BG and memories when we took a look back at the ten greatest moments in Eagles NFC championship game. History when they dispatch the Falcons pulling away in the second in half winning that game. Twenty seven to ten on New England also had a pretty easy time in the postseason. They won their divisional round game against the Indianapolis Colts. It's twenty two three and then they won the AFC title against the steelers. Forty one to twenty seven. Bill Belichick Charlie. Weis the offensive coordinator at that time for New England Oakland and on the side. Of course you had Andy Reid calling the plays and Jim Johnson The defensive coordinator at the Blitz Happy Defensive Coordinator one of the big story lines. The the biggest story line going into Super Bowl thirty nine was of course the health of terrel owens who was hurt against the Dallas cowboys a few weeks before the end of the season He had A. He broke his leg on a horse collar. Tackle that has now been deemed illegal because of that hit but as the game started getting closer it started to appear as though Teo Jio would be able to get on the field and Tara loans for the Eagles in two thousand and two thousand four was the difference. He took the eagles from being a very very good team. Urine in your out to an almost unbeatable team That season in fourteen games really was just thirteen games because he was hurt early in that game against the cowboys he caught seventy any seven passes for twelve hundred yards and fourteen touchdowns for the eagles that season for the first time in his career. Donovan mcnabb had a true number one receiver seaver to throw the ball to but the eagles offense performed quite well whether well without Tara loans in the two playoff games but to beat the Patriots it was clear the eagles goals. We're GONNA need him and he managed to get. He managed to get back in time six weeks after surgery to repair his broken right ankle. He was on the the field for the start of Super Bowl. Thirty nine Donovan. mcnabb had his best season. An Eagle in two thousand and four mostly because terrel owens was on the outside and he and mcnabb was outstanding in two playoff wins against the Vikings and the Falcons mcnabb had always struggled in those NFC title game but he played very well against Atlanta Atlanta. One or the other storylines that Freddie Mitchell was running his mouth. He came into the game talking a lot of smack about safety Rodney Harrison telling Harrison that he he was gonna have something for him and then in the game you know Freddie Mitchell caught one pass which late in the fourth quarter and Harrison had Two interceptions as we'll get to here in just Dominica and of course the Patriots were looking to officially become a dynasty. They had beaten the rams had upset. The Rams in the Super Bowl three years before they had failed to get back to the super bowl the year after that. But in two thousand three or just after the two thousand three season they beat the Carolina Panthers and one of the most underrated super bowls in NFL NFL history. And we're looking for their third title in four years. Andy Reid looking for that first title after finally getting the Eagles back to the Super Bowl for the first time since nineteen eighteen eighty so that was the setup as the teams gathered on the field in Jacksonville Florida for Super Bowl.

10 years on, Michle Montas recalls the day no Haitian can forget

"In the days following the earthquake ten years ago that killed around two hundred twenty thousand Haitians. The sounds of praying shouting. Not yelling filled the streets and a sense that this was the end of the world. Well that's one of the powerful memories from survivor. Michele Montas that former UN spokesperson who just returned turned home to live in her native country when disaster struck within hours she was working with the UN peacekeeping mission Nusa helping coordinate a huge international aid effort it the UN having lost one hundred and two of its own staff on that fateful day to mark the tenth anniversary this week she spoke to News Christina Silvio one aftershock after the other the initial one was in my house and lived with I saw the walls being just cracking. We all went out to nobody. Stayed in the houses of Forego `about to three nights. I spent a fulling three nights with a group of a school children in a Catholic nuns who across the street from me and nobody will go inside buildings and dissents that listening to people praying shouting yelling with the sense that this was the end of the world and that will not can that really marked me and we'll stay with me rest of my life. We realized how many people impacted only the following shoe days. The following is that's when I was called to join minister so I was retired from the UN. So I thought and I I was glad to join minister because dealer the only one we're capable of actually playing the coordinating role to help the aid. That was pouring into Haiti. While all the infrastructure was down including the airport. How really was able to a channel that eight and distribute that it? Can you talk a bit about what it was like that first response and the rescue and the emergency response what was it like. During those first days is to get it off the ground there was at the heart of it as well as you just said. Yes yes it was. It was about digging people out of of rubbles also which way which was not easy to Haitian government was all the administrative buildings had been destroyed. There was no national palace. Government was just is functioning inside a police station and the His government could not react had no means to react and the UN was there to actually get that aid even to the where troops coming from the US from Canada from different country are just arriving but it the first responders where people from the UN troops from the UN who actually were helping to dig people out of the rubble. We're we're helping also to evacuate people had been wounded and helping the medical teams coming into Haiti to set up emergency clinics in the street. That's where people were had to be amputated where had to be then transported to hospitals. They were not hospitals was that were really makeshift ones because the real hospitals had collapsed fifty centers in hospitals collapse. That day and there was no way that he's an infrastructure. Could take those people and do you. Employ extraordinary role in evacuating. Some people. Were actually as soon as it was possible. Possible to fly them out to fly them to different places where it could be taken care of the wounded even though the UN had also itself itself been hit quite hard yes the UN was was still trying to get people out of the rubble over the Christopher hotel we lost the UN lost one hundred and two people pulled that day and the people who were from the civilian mission. We've been working in that hotel in new almost vicky few people actually managed to get Out Alive. How long did that emergency response last in terms of the organization until it became less of an emergency response and more into to rebuilding? It took a while to it took a while because even rebuilding was done on a temporary basis. I we had a tense. For the people we thought lodging then we had a temporary lodging that were built we had camps that had to be installed with water supply and it took civil civil civil months while I would say up to six months before actually you know people could be taken care of six months in which they are to be taken care of the camps to be set up the food had to be distributed. Water was a great problem. The distribution of water and Dominica. Help all these where everything was urgent. Everything meanwhile the aid was being flown in could not cog was clogged into the airport report and to get that out to people who needed it took weeks and weeks. They were number of NGOs there and I have to say a lot of them came. Would you know wanting to help but not always knowing how to help. And that's a good thing that the UN was was there with the infrastructure. The agents for UNICEF was there all the agencies of the United Nations were there within the civilian mission. They were not at that building collapsed but they were able to react pretty fast into of a helping with the water with food and with the emergency response wants. What was it like for you to go through such a catastrophe and and live through it? What does that brought you? Well I think it marked my life and is very difficult to forget it. I don't think I will ever forget it. I don't think any Haitian can forget it. Every time they reverse we like the tenth anniversary three there was a fifth anniversary was marked. People can tell you exactly where the where when he happened. They can tell you exactly what we're doing they can tell you who the lost and in what circumstances they can tell you about you know waiting for hours for your loved one to be taken out of rebels they can tell you with great precision season and I can tell you we quit precision When I got friends out when I had to go tools when I saw buddies bodies being dumped in trucks and being taken to make shift a grave? We're we're dumping buddy because They cannot could not keep track because as the bodies were coming out they had to be taken. Some weird could not stay in in rot. And these you never forget this sniffer. Is there something about human character trait. That you've learned from that experience celebrity solidarity with it was destroyed idea from Haitians. Sion's was amazing as you had people with the bear Hanes d I d trying to get people out from under the rubble. solidiarity of people from slums rushing to help a people at the university that had collapsed students. Who are better off the way international diety I think the number of people who are in the US in Canada in France or over the world who contributed as much as they could for people for the first food aid for wooder for things that were immediately needed and also the solidity of countries remember one Medical team that from Israel Immediately to in started operating in a tent in the street and Taking care of people that need needed to be amputated because they were going to be effected. It had been taken out of the rubble but they had been there seven days. Four days or more do you think today. Haiti and Haitians are better. Prepared appeared to face catastrophe of that magnitude. It's difficult to see There were some things done. Do we have shown under protection civil. which is the organism in charge of the prevention of disasters that has been very efficient? had been efficient before four. Are doing different hurricanes hurricanes and we're really enforced by support from you in deep For instance and the are better able to D- to to predict for instance hurricanes and better able to respond to hurricanes and have been better able to within the last ten in years to respond to hurricanes. But you know would it be able to face a new earthquake. I'm the true reason being that. Essentially people try to rebuild. Once the international aid stopped people started rebuilding their homes. Do we the way they could With makeshift material. Some of it with a rebel from the earthquake in two thousand unintended in those affordable and will probably collapse in case there is another earthquake. Heat is better a way that it can happen and you have hasten especially saying the the out we have another possibility of another the earthquake coming to the north of the country and people are aware. And that's that's part of part of winning the battle of making making people aware of knowing what to do in case it happens of course in something as catastrophic as The two thousand ten earthquake. We'll meet a population with even more than their abilities. People report today in Haiti then the way when the earthquake happened in two thousand and ten

Dominica native wants to protect climate migrants

"I`Ma Francis is from Dominika a small island nation in the Caribbean. It's one of the most beautiful places on earth. It's filled with mountains and rivers and hot springs and beaches. It's also on the front lines of climate change. Ninety percent of dominykas population lives in coastal villages. They're vulnerable to flooding at sees rise and tropical storms grow more intense in two thousand seventeen hurricane. Maria ravaged the island and forced about a fifth of residents to flee some permanently Francis was in law school and and the crisis drove home. The importance of what she was learning. International law doesn't provide any protection to climate migrants. There's no convention at that covers. Climate Migration in the way that people who are moving as refugees for example have and I thought this was a huge gap. It felt really important to me to be working on creating legal support for climate migrants. Now Francis is doing so as a fellow at the Saban Center for Climate Change Law at at Columbia University she researches and advocates for an international agreements to help climate migrants like those from Dominika for settle and work in new

Democratic debate: Elizabeth Warren evades question about tax rises

"Dominica I want to ask you about Elizabeth Warren as you heard earlier I was saying that she was their primary target the other Democratic candidates and one big issue that kept coming up again and again is that worn whitten say weather middle class taxes would go up under medicare for all and Pete Buddha judge caught her on it here he is let me be clear on this costs will go up for the wealthy they will go up for big corporations and for middle class families they will go down I will not sign a bill into law that does not lower costs for middle class families Mayor Buddha Judge you say Senator Warren has been quote evasive about how she's going to pay for Medicare for all response or you heard it tonight a yes or no question that didn't get a yes or no answer and lots of the candidates kept hammering her or going back to her on that Dominica what do you think how did this moment resonate we'll look last week was the first time that Elizabeth Warren caught Joe Biden in the average of the national polls and congratulations is what happens when you wind up at the top and the polls you become a front runner and you get a lot of that scrutiny and for people to Judge Amy Klobuchar we should remember they really pinned in Elizabeth Warren on what is her biggest vulnerability and that is whether she's electable that's been the number one issue with Democrats in this a lot of folks were just saying she also did not answer that question your thoughts about she didn't she didn't answer the question but that's the point is that she didn't answer the question and the the problem that what people digits in particular was pointing to is that her policies are too liberal to be elected and she doesn't want cops the fact that that people would have to probably have see their taxes go up because Bernie Sanders did say that that's what would happen aiming on the other hand was saying she's dismissive of other people's ideas and that's interesting thing and we're gonNA see how worn responds to all that that's right and she actually spoke about Warren's wealth tax listen I wanNA give a reality check here to Elizabeth because no one on this stage wants to protect billionaires not even the billionaire wants to protect billionaire we have different approaches your idea is not the only idea so dominica were hearing they're mclovin Shara Pete Buddha judge everybody just kind of puppy piling on but how you think Elizabeth Warren held up you know she's going to have to be at the centre now I mean she did not answer that question about whether people taxes are gonna go up she also didn't really respond to people to Judge when he said that you don't have a plan on this you have a plan on everything else but has basically been using Bernie Sanders as a heat shield to sort of keep the pressure off of her are when it comes to Medicare for all and there's a reason why people to judge kept bringing up Medicare for all who want it as he calls it which is essentially Medicare for all who wanted a medicare for all as a choice instead

News Brief: Presidential Debate, EPA Changes Clean Water Rules

"Now we know what it looks and sounds like when all the Democratic presidential contenders share the same stage that's right the ten leading leading candidates met in Houston Texas Joe Biden who's been leading in the polls stood near the centre. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders stood to either side. Now it'd be hard to say that anybody decisively one debate so many months before actual voting but this event did seem to highlight genuine differences among Democrats including those three the at center stage. What were the differences well? NPR POLITICAL REPORTER ASTHMA Hollywood is in Houston Good Morning Aspe- and our senior political editor and correspondent Dominica Montinaro was watching Ching to Dominica Good morning to you and let's start with you Dominica. What did you see is? Those candidates spoke well. I mean you know the big thing here is that this was the strongest debate eight at least to start for Joe. Biden was crisper than he's been. He seemed ready to go on the attack but he also got some help early on and that's a big part of why is able to do better from amy cloche are the senator from Minnesota. She really decided to Kinda hug the moderate lane and seemed to put a floor under Biden in didn't wind up turning turning into a pylon like it has an other debates pylon Joe Biden and instead there was this division in the Democratic Party was several candidates on either side and asthma something in close to I I think close to half an hour of disagreements on a single big issue healthcare that's right and we've seen other healthcare debates in the first chew debates but what I think is unique about this. One is at the focus of the healthcare conversation for much of this campaign cycle has been concentrated on the progressive left specifically around around Bernie Sanders Medicare for all plan last night. Biden was much more aggressive in defending his ideas around healthcare and I want you to take a listen to specific bite of what he had to say. I think I know that the senator says she's for Bernie Yeah. I'm for Barack. I think the obamacare worked. I think the way we added to it replace everything that's been cut at a public option guarantee that everyone will be able to have affordable assurance. I guess we should clarify. Senator says she's for Bernie. He's he's referring to Elizabeth. Elizabeth Warren yes exactly and you know the Biden. Campaign sees this argument as a clear strength for him in war and world and people sort of laugh at the idea that health insurance people like their health insurance company. They'll say people like their doctor. They like their nurse and Massachusetts. Senator doesn't really want to take the bait in specifically wind Biden is pushing around this idea of taxes and costs which is something we saw last night. They feel like that's an intellectually dishonest honest argument about whether or not taxes on the middle class will go up the thing that really you ought to look at total cost but I would say look a lot of voters aren't going to get that distinction between between costs and and taxes kind of lost in the details what they're essentially acknowledging your taxes would go up aren't they but they're saying your other cost your other healthcare costs would go down in many cases so we've got Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren favouring Medicare for all but as Dominica mentioned Joe Biden was not the only person saying wait but let's do something a little more a little more moderate here and Dominica just mentioned actually specifically Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar who defended many times this idea of healthcare Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has made a point of saying he wrote the Damn Bill around Medicare for all so he knows that people are mischaracterizing it well. Here's what Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar had to say about that while Bernie wrote the bill I read the bill and on page eight age eight of the bill. It says that we will no longer have private insurance as we know it. I don't think that's a bold idea. I think it's it's a bad idea and this idea of eliminating choice is something we also heard from south. Bend Indiana me or Buddha judge who tied his idea his plan called a medicare for all who want it and basically he says that you should trust the American voters to do what they want to have the sense to choose what they opt for okay so quite substantive debate bait there. Maybe not a lot that was new but people could sit there and look at the differences between the candidates. Now we mentioned that there were ten Democrats on stage but sometimes it seemed seemed almost like there were eleven. Let's listen I WANNA give credit I to Barack Obama for really bringing us this far. We we all know huge debt to President Obama who fundamentally transformed healthcare in America and of course we owe a debt of gratitude to President Barack Obama Dominica at sounds like President Obama had a pretty good bay. It's quite a difference from what we've heard in past debates when they've been pretty critical of Obama's tenure as not progressive aggressive enough of those newly warm feelings tell me they recognize Biden still in the lead and just how important older black voters who've been really supporting Biden are to who wins this nomination. I mean President Obama is still very popular within the Democratic Party and a lot of voters who we've talked to on the campaign trail sorta chafed at this idea that there were sort of dismissing him especially with President trump in the White House. They're saying well. How far do they want to go? we kind of liked to what President Obama had to do. I guess we should be explicit about this of course Joe Biden. Having Been Barack Obama's vice president naturally associated with Obama's record Glenn he's wrapped himself in President Obama and everyone else has sort of seeded the lane which was kind of jaw dropping to be totally honest. There was also a difference last night on gun laws Beto total rourke Democrat of Texas noted early on that his city. I'll pass oh just suffered a mass shooting just weeks ago and he was pretty definite about assault style rifles hell yes. We're GONNA take your fifteen. Ak47 what does he want to do. And how does that. Compare to the other candidates on stage so he's proposing a mandatory gun buyback program Stephen you heard that line was so enthusiastically received in the debate hall all but that that just shows you. It's really popular maybe with the activist base of the Democratic Party. Most of the candidates do agree on some sort of version of voluntary gun buyback back program but our work is going further with this mandatory idea. I think what's really interesting. Is that when you look at the broader electorate mandatory Tori gun buybacks are really controversial recent. NPR PBS Newshour Mayor's poll found that forty six percent of Americans are against Congress passing such legislation Asian forty five percent are in favour and really the divide splits along partisan lines Dominica one of the question for you. We've talked about the five or six leading candidates. It's did anybody a little bit further down in the polls standout. All you know you look at over work. I mean he certainly was in full remote reboot mode of his candidacy and all these other candidates are starting to feel the heat and they were really trying some hail Marys yet Andrew Yang with this competition to give out a thousand dollars to to ten different people. Amy Klobuchar went for broke in the moderate Lane it who Leon Castro forcefully going after Joe Biden at several turns so you had a lot out of these candidates realizing that votes are going to be cast shortly and had to take some risks last night the Medico s Mahala. Thanks so much you're welcome. That's that's. NPR's here's dominicos Montinaro and NPR's Esfahan. The trump administration is changing what qualifies is as the waters of the United States the head of the Environmental Protection Agency signed off on the repeal of an Obama era era regulation for many years federal law has aimed to limit pollution in lakes and rivers the administration of President Obama extended that rule in ways that would regulate pollution on wetlands and smaller waterways they were to be regulated in part because they flow into the bigger waterways. EPA Administrator a straighter Andrew Wheeler argued that rolling back that rule would reassure farmers and home builders and landowners NPR's brought is covering this story for us and he's on the line naked morning hey steve what regulation exactly so what scrapping regulation that was finalized in the waning days of the Obama Administration called the waters of the the US rule or for short okay because you know as well as I do Steve Every federal policies only as strong as its acronym. That's not on August acronym. I got but anyway go basically with the waters United States did was tried to define which rivers streams wetlands and lakes should deserve protection under the Clean Water Act the clean water act itself largely limits pollution in big navigable waterways. That's the term in the actual statute but court decisions including a ruling from the Supreme Court left the door or open for protections to expand off of those bigger waterways so like you said not just the river but the stream that feeds into it or the wetland next to it and Obama wanted to basically officially officially extend federal water protections to that larger connected water system with this regulation. I guess we should just underline the basic problem. Here is gravity. You want to protect the rivers. The Big rivers offers you WANNA protect the big lakes but essentially all land I mean everything flows downhill into something and so how do you how far you extend that protection inland. Why did the trump trump administration consider Obama's approach to be a power grab? Well you know this change was not terribly popular with a number of groups farmers developers minors they saw all this is they did many Obama environmental regulations as a federal land grab in an overreach of what the Clean Water Act was actually intended to do and look the rules certainly expanded federal water protections to new waterways but was I think was as is the case with a lot of these policies one way or the other There's a lot of rhetoric where the on the ground impact is a a little harder to discern part of that be in this rule is because it was immediately challenged in court by some of the groups that we just mentioned and the trump administration was clear from let's start that this rule was one of its top environmental targets so in some ways it was kind of a dead rule walking. Oh so we never really found out how much landowners and other other people might have been affected had this rule been fully implemented. No it was only implemented in two thousand fifteen and and and was challenged by a number of states so do we have any sense now of how landowners and other people will be affected now that the rule is conclusively debt again say you know those groups are groups are thrilled ruled by this decision. EPA Chief Andrew Wheeler announced repeal to applause at the National Association of Manufacturers Headquarters yesterday but this rule like many many of the trump administration's regulatory rollbacks is going to be challenged in court so at the end of the day the impact is probably going to be discerned by court decision very very briefly as my drinking water is supposed to be affected by this again hard to say you know in the media the federal water protections are GonNa Revert back to where they were in nineteen
