Trump Administration weakens protections for endangered animals.

Why? Because fuck animals, that’s why.

Courtesy of NYT:

The Trump administration on Monday announced that it would change the way the Endangered Species Act is applied, significantly weakening the nation’s bedrock conservation law credited with rescuing the bald eagle, the grizzly bear and the American alligator from extinction.

The changes could clear the way for new mining, oil and gas drilling, and development in areas where protected species live. The new rules will make it harder to consider the effects of climate change on wildlife when deciding whether a given species warrants protection. They would most likely shrink critical habitats and, for the first time, allow economic factors to be taken into account when making determinations.

Environmental groups denounced the changes as a disaster for imperiled wildlife at a time when the United Nations has warned that human pressures are poised to drive one million species into extinction and that protecting land and biodiversity is critical to keep greenhouse gas emissions in check.

Climate change, a lack of environmental stewardship and mass industrialization have all contributed to the enormous expected global nature loss, the report said.

I guess we can take some solace in the knowledge that the Trump Administration does not just hate immigrants and liberals, they hate animals too. 

And I think I know why Trump hates endangered animals the most. 

Trump getting his eyes clawed out by the symbol of America would be incredibly poetic.

      “The United States is learning much from the failed missile explosion in Russia. We have similar, though more advanced, technology,” Trump admitted. “The Russian ‘Skyfall’ explosion has people worried about the air around the facility, and far beyond. Not good!”
      Phil Elliott, a Time magazine reporter, noted it sounded like disclosure of a secret weapons program.

      “Did the President just confirm the existence of a missile system with mini-nuclear reactors aboard, eliminating distance limitations, and that can fly low and weave around anti-missile shields?”

    The Manitoba medical examiner completed the autopsies and confirmed that the bodies found last week were indeed 19-year-old Kam McLeod and 18-year-old Bryer Schmegelsky.
    The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said in a statement that “the two died in what appears to be suicides by gunfire.”

    “It’s turning out to be the Summer of Greta Thunberg. Not only did the Nobel Peace Prize nominee address French lawmakers in July, quoting the latest report from the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, but her book No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference, came out in June. If that’s not enough proof of the Summer of Greta, yesterday it was announced that she will receive the first-ever Game Changer Award at the GQ Men of the Year Awards 2019.

    Greta, who is only 16, began a worldwide movement to take action against climate change. Her school strike, which she started last summer, has since inspired 1.4 million people to join protests and demonstrations around the world.

    “The Game Changer Award was created for Greta Thunberg,””

    It makes me ill to see how trump has destroyed the USA in just 2.5 years, I shutter to think what havoc he will bestow on us in the next 1.5 years.

    Hope all those jokers that voted for Jill Stein are really proud that they fell for putin’s trap. the russians are rooting for Bernie or Tulsa, hope we don’t have a repeat performance.

    I list just two of the big ones for now. One of them is a measure that would weaken the ability of scientists to protect species against the threats of climate change. Another is a phrase that would introduce the ability of the federal government to include economic analysis.

    Today, we heard from the attorneys general of Massachusetts and California, they have vowed to sue. Senator Udall, who you mentioned, said that he’s going to be looking at legislative measures to block this in Congress.

    And who is to blame? The “christians”.

      I would say that it’s the GOP, who like to wallow in a false version of Christianity.

    But they have walked back on the cyanide bombs. They won’t be using M-55 land mines.
