Block Trump from mov­ing back­ward on en­vi­ron­ment

The Denver Post - - PERSPECTIVE - Re: Ed Tal­bot,

Seth Wig­gins is right about Don­ald Trump and the un­sta­ble heated planet he will lead us to. Gut­ting en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tions ap­pears to be his higher pri­or­ity with his ex­pected as­sault on the En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Agency and re­ject­ing the land­mark Paris cli­mate change treaty.

Cer­tain mem­bers of our Congress should for­sake “party loy­alty” for a loy­alty to the peo­ple, water, land and clean air of our na­tion and in­deed the world. For cli­mate change de­niers, it is time for them to pull their heads out of the sand of ig­no­rance and avoid­ance and open their eyes to what is hap­pen­ing in the Arc­tic, the melt­ing ice cap in Green­land, the rise in ocean lev­els, and the on­set of ever more de­struc­tive weather events ex­ac­er­bated by cli­mate change.

A Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion lead­ing an ef­fort to fur­ther bury our na­tional im­per­a­tive to lead on ad­dress­ing cli­mate change is un­ac­cept­able.
