Trump’s Response to Climate-Related Disasters: Open America’s “Crown Jewels” to Oil Drilling

Andy Rowell

You would have thought that after being battered by two devastating hurricanes in recent weeks, which experts believe were fuelled by warmer seas caused by climate change, even the most die-hard climate denier would think again.

But you would be wrong.

You would have thought that as the cost of rebuilding after Hurricanes Irma and Harvey mounts, with an estimated bill of $150 billion so far, that politicians would press to move away from a fossil fuel economy.

ANWR has been in the GOP’s crosshairs for decades…recall Palin’s “drill baby drill” chants during the 2008 campaign.

Please check out Wikipedia “Being Caribou”, then please watch Karsten Heuer, and Leanne Allison’s 2005 documentary film, “Being Caribou” on You Tube 1 hour, 21 minutes. I seen it on PBS, and it is extremely well done, and beautifully special, so please do it.

So what do so-called "conservatives"often want to conserve?

  • The glass ceiling

  • Stereotypes for females, LGBQIA, any person who does not have white skin

  • The War on Drugs, because it puts more and more brown and black people in prison, even though drug use is about the same for all.

  • Racist traditions and institutions

  • Christmas, so say “Merry Christmas” you instead of “Happy Holidays” which is a war on Christmas, because sexual assaulter Bill O’Reilly says so.

But not Wilderness, the Earth, fragile ecosystems, green pathways for wild animals so they can roam and not be run over, and they definitely do not want to conserve the horse shit they seem to regularly leave on backpacking trails.
