US weakens endangered species’ protection for oil companies

A sweeping overhaul of the US Endangered Species Act has been finalised by the Trump administration. It is likely to clear the way for new mining, and oil and gas drilling.
The Act of the 1970s is credited with bringing several iconic species back from the brink of extinction.

  1. Organize, get out in our communtiies in the U.S.. Form friendships in the real world. Unionize locally and internationally. Vote for progressive candidates or run thereas if there are none. All hope is not yet lost.

  2. Simple solution none of you will consider? Don't buy oil. Stop using cars and stop buying plastics. If it's wrapped in plastic don't buy it. If YOU are not willing to "be" the change then don't expect trump to be the change, his world is greed and sin.

  3. The courts will already give Trump life in prison. For this the judges should give Trump and his gang the death sentence. It's beyond just first degree murder. It's a crime of mass murder and terrorism.

  4. "To blessed animals the utmost kindness must be shown, the more the better. Tenderness and loving-kindness are basic principles of God's heavenly Kingdom. Ye should most carefully bear this matter in mind." ~ Baha'i Faith
