Trumps War on Our Planet and Health (2017)



Over the past four and a half decades, presidents from both parties have furthered environmental protections designed to keep the American people safe and healthy. But President Trump and the Republican-led Congress, are poised to wipe out these essential safeguards. America is now facing the worst assault against our environment and health in our history. President Trump has pledged to cripple the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, making it even harder to protect our natural resources, and as a result, the well-being of all Americans.
Clean drinking water? Gone. President Trump vowed to eliminate EPA's Clean Water Rule, a critical rule that keeps contaminants out of drinking water supplies for one in three U.S. residents.
 Clean air? Gone, too. His plans to weaken smog standards and reject the Clean Power Plan will give us dangerously dirty air and higher risks of heart attacks, asthma attacks, respiratory problems, and deadly heart and lung diseases.
 Climate progress? Derailed. President Trump has called climate change a hoax and has pledged to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. Now, instead of taking a leading role in curbing climate change, the U.S. could fall behind some of the worst polluting nations.
There is not a single environmental standard, or regulation, or law, that is not going to be challenged by this new administration. If we care about the fate of our natural resources and all they support, if we care about American values, of equity and justice for all people, if we care about leaving our children a livable world, it's on all of us, as citizens, to stand up to this threat.

Moose population in North America

The moose ( Alces alces ) is the largest member of the deer family, characterized by its massive size, long legs, and distinctive broad, palmate antlers found in males. They have a dark brown or black coat and a humped shoulder. Moose are primarily found in the boreal and mixed deciduous forests of North America, Europe, and Asia. They are solitary animals, often found near bodies of water, and are herbivores that feed on leaves, bark, twigs, and aquatic vegetation. Despite their size, moose are strong swimmers and can run up to 35 miles per hour. The moose population in North America is shrinking swiftly. This decrease has been correlated to the opening of roadways and landscapes into this animal's north range.   In North America, the moose range includes almost all of Canada and Alaska, the northern part of New England and New York, the upper Rocky Mountains, northern Minnesota and Wisconsin, Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and Isle Royale.    In 2014-2015, the North American moo
