A Fight For Survival: Trump VS The Bumblebees


                                        Good Day World!

Trump's latest buzz kill...

A WWF takedown of our environment is underway as faithful Trumpanzees suspend rules set up by the Obama administration to protect the rusty-patched bumblebee (Bombus affinis) and other endangered species from extinction.

The science is clear - Bombus affinis is headed toward extinction, and soon, according to Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) senior attorney Rebecca Riley.

So why does Chump want to take the bumblebees protection away?

Why has he instructed agencies to withdraw or freeze an array of rules that were intended to protect public health and the environment?

Guess what?

Trump's billionaire buddies at Bayer and Syngenta are doing the happy dance because they will get to resume using a deadly pesticide - Neonicotinoids - that makes them billions of dollars every year.

Just good old Thump stimulating the economy right?

The loss of the rusty-patched bumblebee would be a significant one, and a harbinger of greater losses to come.

The bee is one of 47 species found in North America, more than a quarter of which face the risk of extinction, according to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has filed a lawsuit against what they claim was an illegal move by the Trump administration.

This is the third lawsuit that the NRDC has already filed against the Trump administration for its attacks on regulations.

By allowing these corporations to peddle neonicotinoids without concern for our environment, Lump has lowered even his bar for being a baseless moneygrubbing brat.

Other victims of neonicotinoids include, hummingbirds, butterflies, bats, earthworms, and now marine life off the Central American Barrier Reef.

These poisons are being found in our rivers, soil and even our brains.

It's now become even more of a fight for everyone's survival. We need those bees. We need clean water. We don't need a profitable poison in our brains.

It's bad enough that peopling are drinking orange kool aid too.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
