BREAKING: Congressional leaders just introduced legislation to rescind the Trump administration’s regulations eviscerating the Endangered Species Act-- our most effective law to #StopExtinction . @SenTomUdall , @RepRaulGrijalva , @RepDonBeyer , @RepDebDingell
A North Atlantic right whale has been found dead off Long Island, NY - the first in US waters in 2019. U.S. officials say age, sex, cause of death unknown. CBC Nova Scotia's Paul Withers reports the endangered whale species is now down to 95 breeding females. (Photo: NY State)
Think of how crazy you have to be, in the middle of a mass-extinction event, to try to destroy the Endangered Species Act. I’m sure Trump’s friends in the fossil fuel and mineral industries are happy with his attack on our biodiversity.
News that the Trump Administration will weaken the Endangered Species Act. Our planet and its natural balance takes another hit. Stewardship of the environment will also be on the ballot in 2020.
Now, trump wants to make changes to the Endangered Species Act—why is every choice they make so villainous—from allowing hibernating bear cubs and baby wolves to be hunted to getting rid of environmental protections for clean water and air. Pure evil.
My favorite endangered species in #BadLandsNationalPark is either the Black-Footed Ferret or the Brass-Balled Tweeter.
