The latest assault on the environment by the Trump Administration reeks of cynicism and political opportunism. Offshore oil drilling faces bipartisan opposition. Few believe it is a solution to a smart and comprehensive energy policy. It’s less a bridge to the future – more like a pipeline to the past.
And once again, we have the sheer, unabashed hypocrisy of the head of a political party that once stood for local rights and federalism pushing an unpopular policy down the throats of the American people.
Protecting the environment used to be a bipartisan issue, and perhaps outrages like this can make it so once again. Saving our planet for future generations must be part of #WhatUnitesUs.
