Republicans fail to explain to their base that fishing and hunting are on their way to being much less available to them in the future, and that their legislated pollution will cause that
Mining pollution will again take out thousands of miles of rivers and streams now abundant with trout. Thousands of acres of wildlife habitat and hunting sanctuaries rich with game and birds will return to before the rules – wastelands.
As the decade moves forward, the Republicans will have enabled increased air pollution and cause significant increases in child and worker respiratory diseases and deaths as well as losses in millions of acre-feet of viable freshwater resources due to contamination.
Failing to speak up – do the right thing. It’s become the new Republican trade mark
When all the grousing was said and done, corporations accepted the government’s environmental regulations without hardship – think the automotive industry for the most evident example. The laws, the industry decided, were nonintrusive, or they were satisfied being part of the welfare of the environment. And every outdoor group in America was cheering loudly – until Trump. Millions have been enjoying the “improved” out of doors for decades – a heritage unique to America in a nonpartisan way, until Trump.
Clean water and clean air are bad for us?
Clean air and water are both under a wasteful attack, so coal, Pebble Mine and Boundary Waters mining, and other misadventures can work their magic and destroy the significant improvements we are enjoying.
In time, fishing, hunting, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, camping, birding, and more recreational real estate will heading to the chopping block and end great portions of the billions of dollars outdoor industries contribute to our economic prosperity will just keep shrinking.
Sorry folks, there’s no alternate reality for you to cling to when it comes to pollution
Republicans stay silent as Trump sees existing environmental rules as burdensome to the fossil fuel industry and other big businesses, so they are officially reversed or substantially rolled-back.
