Carl Safina, New York Times: The New Threat to Endangered Species? The Trump Administration
Quoting Safina's NYT opinion article: "Until now, the principal existential threats to free-living species have included urbanization, expanding intensive agriculture, pesticides, plastics, river pollution, dams, invasive species and the three “overs”: overcutting, overhunting, overfishing. Now we can add to that list President Trump, his administration and complicit Republicans in Congress."
The Trump administration's new rules and gutting of existing regulations will potentially open the way for mining, oil and gas drilling and other developments that will play havoc with our ability to protect endangered animals and plants from extinction.
