We Will Not Back Down

Trump has made it clear that he stands with the fossil fuel industry. And we’ve made it clear that we stand with sustainability. Many challenges already face Trump and his administration, especially in the month of April that is dedicated to the Earth’s stability.

Do your part for the Earth and future generations to inhabit it and fight for sustainability.

The Beginning of the War on Climate

(via CNN)

This order plans on dismantling the EPA regulations on climate, or as he refers to it “the war on coal.” Trump blames climate regulations on the federal government having too much power over industry, although these regulations have been put in place for the sake of humanity.

April 22 and April 29 have separate protest marches planned to resist against Trump’s latest policies. Be a part of them.

Trump Administration Seeks to Pull out of Climate Change Initiatives

“We’re not spending money on that anymore. We consider that to be a waste of your money to go out and do that.”

— Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget

As if the Trump administration couldn’t do anything worse for the environment. Once again, they managed to shock some and disgust others.

The Trump administration seeks to pull out of international agreements to combat climate change. One of which, the Green Climate Fund (GCF), credits the United States as the top financial contributor. This organization isn’t just about climate change initiative. It also seeks to help other developing nations address issues brought about by their inequalities, such as hazardous pollution levels.

Fight back against the administration at the end of April. Make your voice heard. Two marches are scheduled on back-to-back Saturdays: April 22 (March for Science) and April 29 (People’s Climate Movement). We need all the support we can get to tell the administration that we will not back down.

Study: Premature Births Linked to Air Pollution

There is an infinite world of scientific knowledge out there that we do not know. We just discovered there could potentially be a direct relationship between air pollution and premature births, along with other maternal issues.

Pollution is about more than just climate change; our lives are at stake here. Take action. Get involved. Be the change we need in this world.

A Snapshot of the Global Pollution Crisis

You owe it to humanity to take a look at thisthis.

This is not okay. This would sicken most people if they were to see it, but instead, they are shielded from the brutal reality across the globe.

Rusty Patched Bumblebee Faces Extinction (Thanks to Trump)

“Pollinators are small but mighty parts of the natural mechanism that sustains us and our world. Without them, our forests, parks, meadows and shrublands, and the abundant, vibrant life they support, cannot survive, and our crops require laborious, costly pollination by hand.”

Did you think Trump’s industrial regulation freeze would only affect those industries and laborers? Think again.

This isn’t the only species in danger; many others will face a similar path if regulations are so loose that they can pollute or use pesticides as much as they please. And, because the global environment and ecosystems are designed to exist in perfect harmony, the extinction of one species will ultimately lead to the demise of countless more. You can surely count on the elimination of some of your favorite foods and animals.

Everything is interconnected. This is not just a matter of politics. Lives are at stake here.

Carbon Budget Clock

Yikes.

Our carbon emissions are increasing at quite the rate. Now there is a digital “clock” that will illustrate our carbon emissions. This really puts things into perspective. Now it is easier than ever to see how rapidly we are polluting carbon into the atmosphere.

We must put an end to this and stop it. All it takes is a few people to spread the message and advocate for the Earth.
