What the Trump Administration Doesn't Understand About Ocean Conservation

Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, Jeff Orlowski

Think of the ocean as a trust fund. If you want to rely on that fund for the rest of your days, you can only use the interest.

"The scientific consensus is that to create a fully sustainable ocean, we need to fully protect at least 30% of it. Currently, the U.S. protects 13.5% of coastal waters; we'll drop to a small fraction of that if the Trump administration has its way." (Photo: Eco Cafe' Phuket/flickr/cc)

The Trump Administration doesn’t understand anything of substance, but that was obvious from the beginning and articles pissing on them are useless. What would be useful is to report ways that power is being built to get rid of the Duopoly and create a government that works for the 99%. Yet another pain to the power of mass distraction in the U.S. media - corporate, liberal, progressive or fascist.
