Donald Trump betrays all life on Earth



June 1st 2017 is a day to remember.

It's the day that Donald Trump sold out everyone, and I mean everyone, whether they support him or not, on the planet. 

He sold out you, he sold out your kids, and he sold out your grandkids, even the as yet unborn ones. 
He sold out the wildlife and he sold out the plants. Not one person or living form is unaffected.

He told us all - I don't give a toss about you, your future and the future of this planet. I just care about the here and now and I have no concern about wrecking this World for everyone.

How a supposedly intelligent human being can ignore the overwhelming evidence from all over the globe that the climate is changing, how he can ignore the melting glaciers, the rivers drying up, the encroaching deserts, the bleaching corals, the disappearing polar ice shelves the droughts and the storms, is beyond comprehension.

And how a supposedly intelligent population can be so blinkered and insular and self centred and ignorant in their view of the World and be taken in by him enough to vote him President of the United States of America simply beggars belief.

They have taken their country a giant step backwards, reverting to a mentality of 'I'm all right Jack so stuff you'. They have damaged the credibility and stature of the US and voted for all that is wrong in human nature.

I could weep for the blow he has delivered to this beautiful planet on this day.

I can only hope that sanity prevails soon and he is ousted before the damage is irreparable and catastrophe befalls us all. 

Take a look at Mars everyone.

Climate change severely impacts endangered species

More than 700 currently Endangered species are being impacted by climate change, according to a major scientific review in Nature. Nearly half of the land mammals (47%) and 23% of birds on the IUCN Red list of endangerd species are negatively affected, particularly including some of our most iconic creatures like elephants and primates. The findings urge action to lessen the impact and safeguard the future of these important species by securing healthy and functioning environments.

Pangolin feast in China

An investigation will begin in China (where else)  after online images were found showing local officials enjoying a banquet of meat from pangolins – the most trafficked animal in the world.

Pangolin meat is regarded as a delicacy in China, and extravagant feasts are common to show great hospitality.

Pangolins are now very rare in Asia and are being wiped out in Africa to satisfy the demand in China for the meat as a luxury and the scales for Chinese medicine. Animals are often kept alive and have the scales ripped off them as needed.
