Yes it is
So true and especially hard when you are actually a government employee.
what is more horrifying .. is that we always have had to fight our own government to protect our environment …. little of the “for profit / greed is good” mindset has changed in the last few thousand years
We need to save and protect the True America; America the Beautiful filled with nature and native wildlife. I can’t even fully describe with words how much this land means to me. I love America the Beautiful.
Thank you Alt Rangers. We are lucky to have you. #resist
It’s also horrifying that you guys are practically the only ones talking about these regulatory changes. Please post links when you see them covered in respectable media? I am trying to track this and am pushing for better coverage wherever I can.
I had hoped we had moved beyond this, but here we are again!
And as long as corporations keep electing our government nothing will change
It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the air, water, land, Democracy, our health, human rights, the planet, EVERYTHING
It’s NOT the governments job to do so! The only proper role of the government regarding the environment is protecting individual property rights in the court of law. Want a clean environment? Stop being lazy and clean up (Being said to the general public). Quit demanding the government do it for you.
We also need to look deep within ourselves. They wouldn’t mine the resources if we weren’t buying the products. : ). Vote with your $$$; gerrymandering or voter suppression won’t change that vote!
And apparently we always will. It isn’t improving.
A sad commentary on the values of our “government”. $$$$$$$$. If I ran the zoo, every elected official would have to attend a mandatory, yearly 1 week camping trip in one of the pristine beautiful natural treasures of our country. By all means, make it a guided, deluxe, comfortable “glamping” experience, but get these people OUT THERE!
Hopefully Mueller can help stop president twit and his cabinet of equally dumb department heads. SOON PLEASE
Only if you believe the government can save the environment
This is a regime not a government. Huge difference!
We need to protect our National Monuments which 45 wants to drill!
Does everyone realize that Ansel Adams died in 1984?!! This has been on for a long time – and only getting worse!
We have to fight the people who run the government (moneyed special interests, corporations, billionaires, etc) for many things; the environment is one. And many (poor) people are so indoctrinated, so helplessly stuck in the status quo, that they will fight tooth and nail against their own best interests to maintain the neoliberal control of our planet. The government is, however, still, a better option than any misguided US Libertarian wet dream; corporations answer to NO ONE but the owners; the government (however loose this connection has become) is still, at its roots, a democratic, people-powered institution. It is not the governmnet per se which wants to take away health-care from millions of Americans. It is not the governmnet per se which wants us to cling on to fossil fuels, and an army big enough to blow up the planet many times over. It is the people who line the politicians’ pockets.. The people who’ve made it impossible to see who is actually in charge. Vote wisely, folks..
Just imagine how much truer it is now than whenever Ansel said it.
We are the government and it is our responsibility to get the facts and elect those candidates who believe in keeping our environment clean.
And that we have to do it all over yet again, is horrific!
