Terminology change: They are “protections,” not “regulations”

The whole purpose of regulations is to protect the public. So let’s call them “protections,” since that is what they are. Trump is not repealing environmental “regulations,” he’s doing away with environmental protections.

George Lakoff thought of this, and he’s right. A very good note at the link.
