What’s Happening With The Environment? Oh Right, It’s Dying.

Guys, we have a problem.

We live on this planet known as Earth, and there aren’t really any other options if we screw it up royally.  We can’t all pop on over to Zillow and look for real estate if things fall through here.  Obvious as this may seem, it doesn’t appear that the American population is taking this whole issue of global warming and environmental destruction all that serious.  I can’t say I am all that surprised at the lax attitude Americans have seemed to adopt considering our nation is being led by an administration that doesn’t work towards putting Planet Earth First.  3rd from the sun has taken a roayl beating these past one hundred days.

In fact it seems like the guy has a personal vendetta against the planet we call home.  Here is a short list of some of the whammys against the Mothership in his first one hundred days of office:

He nominated Texas Gov. Rick Perry to Head of The Department of Energy.  Here is a guy who initially referred to the science behind climate change as “unsettles” and “phony.”  He softened his attitude towards the topic somewhat at his Senate confirmation hearing back in the earlier part of the year, but it is pretty clear that his alliances don’t side with Mother Earth. Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt is heading up the EPA now.  Yeppers!  Here is a gentleman who has publicly stated that he doesn’t believe in the good old carbon footprint and stands by his view that human activity is not a primary contributor to climate change.  Must be a bunch of fake news…

In 100 days a lot has happened, or has been proposed, and none of it is a step in the direction of environmental consciousness.  We have had the Steam Protection Rule nixed, the Clean Water Rule threatened, and the Methane emissions info put to bed.  Car pollution standards are being reconsidered, the EPA budget is headed straight to hell in a hand basket, and the infamous Keystone XL and Dakota access pipelines has been restored via executive order.  Of course these moves against Earth are just the tip of the rapidly melting iceberg, but we can just stop here.  I think I made my point fairly clear.  The Trump administration is not exactly an environmentally friendly administration and while recent polls suggest the American population generally supports environmental protection, a recent Yale study found 6 out of 10 American’s “worried” about the envirnoment, those numbers fall when you move away from the ambiguous and start addressing hypothetical policy.  With a presidency that publicly devalues environmental protection the American masses will follow suit.  This is a problem.

  1. Mother Nature was here long before us and she’ll be here long after us. How long we’re here is up to us. At this rate that won’t be much longer…

  2. Ahh..global warming is a very real issue and I have no idea why people in power are not taking it more seriously. If things don’t change humans won’t have a planet to live on, I definitely think we all need to look after our lovely planet xx #BlogCrush

  3. I’ve been surprised that there hasn’t been more made of this also. I think it gets lost in all the crazy, but other than starting WW3 is the most important issue of them all, at least to me personally. I said during the election cycle that the one thing that would immediately cross a canditate off my list would be not believing the science of climate change. Guess it wasn’t a defining factor for enough other people. #happynow

  4. You’re right, they don’t care about this planet or us. Have you read anything on the New World Order, the Bilderberg group, The Rothschilds and the list goes on. It’s really about what they (the elite) have planned for the human race. There is also a ton of misinformation out there to keep the masses confused and in their control. It’s something most won’t want to believe, they prefer to keep their heads in the sand. Once you start researching as I did it all became clear, the pieces of the puzzle have started to fit together. There needs to be a lot more discussion so I hope that you achieve this

  5. Well that is scary to read it all like that. Trump is a scary man in my view, especially this week. I think countries like the US have set such an example, because it is so big and powerful it’s not only Americans that take notice, so when the example being set is Trumps…its scary and like you say this here planet will fall to the back of the queue. Scary times eh. Thanks for joining us at #familyfun

  6. Nothing surprises me any more with Trump!

    Sometimes I actually think the planet would be better off if we made it uninhabitable for humans which we are rapidly doing!

  7. It is really very scary!! I’m not sure what will happen. That man is an absolute liability. Part of me hopes he massively messes up so everyone’s eyes are opened to him! Thanks for joining us at the #bigpinklink
