Marty’s photos of the day #2016-2017: Hey Republicans! Look at what you won! Your man Donald Trump has already promised to pull us out of the Paris Agreement, and the Keystone XL pipeline will soon be moving the dirtiest oil on the planet. Also on Trump’s list will be opening up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling.
Now I can’t show you photos of all of the millions of people who will die prematurely due to your man’s ignorance of global warming and your support of his ignorance, but I can show you “before” and “after” pictures of what your votes very well could do in the arctic.
Each day this week I’m going to post two photos from my new book Endangered Edens: Exploring the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica, the Everglades, and Puerto Rico. One photo will show what the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge looks like now (untouched by Trump’s tiny, grubby hands), and the other will show what it looks like at the Prudhoe Bay oil field (one hundred miles to the west).
For more than 35 years, you Republicans have been salivating to do in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge what you have done in Prudhoe Bay. Now that you will control the House, Senate, the Presidency, and soon the Supreme Court, stopping your dirty wet dream will be next to impossible. Your new Trumpland is something I will never understand. Who would have guessed that trashing your children and grandchildren’s future to increase your stock portfolio would ever be considered a virtue?
