The Center’s Monsell, in her statement, added, “Turning the oil industry loose on America’s biggest undeveloped frontier would be a disaster for our climate and Alaska’s wildlife.”

Trump and the GOP ( THE GREEDY OIL PARTY) must be destroyed one way or the other; otherwise, they will destroy the whole planet!

Recognizing that the end of Trump is very, very likely coming soon, he and his repub henchman and enablers are really going after the destruction. The greed and the need for immediate gratification of the corporate rich are at their height.

And Dems who remain silent are complicit if not supportive of what is happening - hear that Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Shumer, and Joe Biden.

“a “disaster” for the climate and wildlife as well as the rights and well-being of Indigenous communities.”

The only difference it seems to me, between the GOP and the DINO’s like Pelosi, Shumer and Biden is in many ways they are the more effective evil.

Trump and the repubs are pretty dam* effective evils - effective at absolute destruction. They are just out in the open about it…now more than ever and with much bigger consequences then ever before.

Corporate Dems like the three named can’t get out of their little bubble of privilege and “power” to want to do anything about it. They are trapped playing with a rule book that no longer applies.

It’s really come down to a chicken and egg thing.
Do we dissolve the NEED for oil, or cut oil production instead?

In this very late and terminal stage of capitalism, the oligarchs will burn everything to the ground in their quest to amass endless wealth. Trump is simply enabling all of them, even though Trump only cares about his own amassing of wealth while he can. Of course the ultimate irony is that they are all going down with the rest of us (flora and fauna included). But they are too sociopathically blinded in their endless quest of wealth to see such a basic reality.

Trump loves this stuff. He gets favor from his fossil fuel hit men while at the same time aggravating his foes.
