These "mothers" poison their young
(and ours, and us, and themselves)
Republicans and some Democrats in Congress are
busy removing protections for the environment

They have reversed a ruling that forbid coal mining companies to
dump waste into any source of drinking water, such as rivers and streams.
Methane restrictions are also being tampered with
(need I say Global Warming?)
Flaring, the burning off of natural gas while drilling in the
petroleum industry, was previously restricted.
This will waste taxpayer money while poisoning the planet.
With energy regulations like these, who needs enemies?
Scott Pruitt, the proposed new EPA head, is an acknowledged
climate change denier who has avoided scientific input
when he finds it convenient. Hundred's of former
and current EPA officials have spoken
against his appointment.
