Reason III: Why Trump Must Absolutely Be Stopped

[Please Share!]

Reason III why Trump must absolutely be stopped:
He promotes the destruction of virgin national forests, which belong to ALL of the American people as national treasures.

The Trump Administration wants a “rule change” which currently protects the Tongass National Forest. This would allow 168,000 acres of old growth (virgin) forest to be cut…

Clear cutting trees and animal habitats for profit, but also building hundreds of miles of new roads directly through pristine forests.

The Tongass alone also “plays a major role in the battle against climate change.”
The Forest “is an enormous natural carbon sink, holding an estimated 8% of all carbon stored in U.S. national forests.”
