Probably doesn't matter anyway since the scorching hot world of the future will kill off most species anyway.

Yeah saw that earlier, disappointed the Trump Administration is trying to lessen protection for endangered animals. I think several wildlife organizations will fight it.

Trump does not protect the people of the U.S.; now I am thinking he may not be a bigot or racist, he just hates anyone who is not a "trump." Why on earth would he protect endangered animals?

They are concerned about the economic cost of protecting endangered species in this economy. What is the point, was protecting the bald eagle, manatees or peregrine falcons too expensive. The endangered species was signed by Nixon in 1973 and has been supported by every president. This is just about inflated estimates in an attempt to garner support against these regulations.


They can no longer consider the impact of climate change on species, why, don't they believe their own government studies.

It's fairy irresponsible to relax laws in relation to endangered species, and you have to have a fairly callous and unsympathetic attitide in terms of the future of the planet to act in this way.

I'd love to hear what Trump voters have to say about this one

Can any of them back up Trump and explain why easing endangered species laws is a GOOD idea???
