    Trump weakens protections of animals endangered by climate crisis

    Sea turtles at risk as Trump weakens protections of animals endangered by climate crisis

    Its decision to weaken the Endangered Species Act will likely put countless species of animals at risk.


    Loggerhead sea turtle young. In danger of extinction.

    8/23/19
    Life as a sea turtle is already harrowing. Emerging alone from a shell to crawl through a deadly gauntlet of predatory birds, dogs and ants, all for the goal of reaching the ocean, a place where fish swallow you whole and fragments of discarded plastic slowly suffocate you. Now climate change – in the form of sea level rise, rising temperatures and fiercer storms – is adding further, existential hardships and in the US a recent weakening of endangered species protections by the Trump administration will further imperil sea turtles and other creatures threatened by the climate crisis. So a coalition of environmental groups has launched a federal court lawsuit to halt the Trump administration’s new interpretation of the Endangered Species Act, America’s bedrock conservation law. The changes will, among other things, limit consideration of threats to species to the “foreseeable future” and make it harder to place protections on important habitat. The Trump administration’s move is a “head in the sand approach to climate change”, according to Noah Greenwald, endangered species director at the Center for Biological Diversity, one of the groups suing the federal government.

    Karimah Schoenhut, a Sierra Club staff attorney, added: “In the face of the climate crisis, the result of this abandonment of responsibility will be extinction.” The Endangered Species Act, which became law in 1973, has been hailed for warding off the extinction of species including the bald eagle, American alligator and the humpback whale. The Trump administration has said its new interpretation will make the act more efficient and business-friendly. “It appears that this administration is ignoring the science because they don’t believe in climate change,” said Taylor Jones, endangered species advocate for WildEarth Guardians, one of the groups suing the government. “This is blatant disregard of the climate crisis.”
    Translation: business-friendly = Corporation profit$ will now trump protecting species from extinction.

    Global warming is a hoax. An excuse to give the government more power and steal money from the people. I'm glad to see these idiotic and useless regulations being rolled back.

    Climatology? Meteorology? Environmental Science? Planetary Science?

    Don't even bother. We know the answer.

    I better log off DP and smoke some before my ****ing head explodes.

    What an evil, horrible monster that man is.

    **** him and his minions. I hope their kids stick them in nursing homes in dirty diapers when they realize what damage this monster has done to this beautiful Earth and how he was enabled by idiots.
    It's disgraceful. I'm going to maybe and I'm looking at it very seriously. We're doing some other things that you probably noticed like some of the very important things that we're doing now. But we're looking at it very seriously because you can't do that. - President Donald J. Trump

    It doesn't make any difference. I know a scam when I see one. Global warming is a scam. Sanders' $16 Trillion green deal could go down as the biggest heist in human history.

    Anyone who went to college, that believes the global warming hoax is real, proves that education and intelligence are not the same thing and probably should ask for their money back.

    Yeah, because the Earth is going to end in 12 years. Right? We've been hearing that for at least 40 years.

    Why do you quote me and post stupid things?

    If the Earth ends in 12 years you should be happy. You can find President Trump in the afterlife and offer to wash his feet every night for him.
