Knowing the new regime is Republican is enough to know that the environment will be under assault. The air we breath, the water we drink, the soil that feeds us ~ it’s all real estate to these folks. Trump made many scattershot promises and threats, and his M.O. is blustery bullshit ~ his scriptwriter calls it a negotiation tactic ~ so it’s hard to say what he’ll do exactly. His hopeful fans will be betrayed as a matter of course, of course, on the economic side. But the scum-sucking profiteers around him are known entities.
Three-fourths of the American people didn’t vote for them, so there should be some hope in that fact. (Hmm, if only there was an organization, say, a party, that could harness the American majority for national parks, climate change preparation, and….)
