    “The Trump administration is proposing changes to shower regulations rules to allow them to pump out more water.
    The proposal comes after Trump repeatedly complained about getting too little water from his shower. He said he needs a lot for his hair to be “perfect.” https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-admin-proposes-shower-pressure-change-rules-his-hair-complaints-2020-8
    “…Consumer groups decried the plan, saying current rules saved consumers money by conserving water and fuel.
    The proposal would effectively allow shower fixtures to include multiple shower heads that would get around the 2.5 gallon per minute standard Congress set in 1992, when Trump’s fellow Republican George HW Bush was president.” https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/aug/12/us-shower-pressure-trump-hair-water
    “By Dec. 1, the U.S. death toll from COVID-19 could reach nearly 300,000. That’s the grim new projection from researchers at the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation — one of the more prominent teams modeling the pandemic. The new forecast, released Thursday, projects that between now and December, 137,000 people will die on top of the roughly 160,000 who have died so far.” (NPR 8/6/20) https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2020/08/06/900000671/300-000-deaths-by-december-9-takeaways-of-the-newest-covid-19-projections
    “The Trump administration is expected in the coming days to lift Obama-era controls on the release of methane, a powerful climate-warming gas that is emitted from leaks and flares in oil and gas wells.
    The rollback of the methane rule is the latest move in the Trump administration’s ongoing effort to weaken environmental standards, which has continued unabated during the coronavirus pandemic.” https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/10/climate/trump-methane-climate-change.html
