Alaska is the last frontier, therefore we must destroy it!

Trump now has an unholy trinity of major policy proposals to his name that would forever destroy three of the largest and most pristine ecosystems on the planet. Trump has opened the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) for oil drilling, revived the proposed Pebble Mine near Bristol Bay — which could devastate the most valuable salmon fishery in the world — and most recently, he opened the Tongass National Forest to logging and development.

  1. Scene: Roman Senate, Way Back When Then and Tinfoil Ballcaps Now

    “What’s that you say, Cato? … Carthago Delenda Est…? You mean ‘destroyed’ as in ‘totally’…?”

    Much mumbling in the assembly, until one Senator pipes up:

    “Capital idea, fellas … let’s do Alaska whilst we’re at it!”

  2. So… it turns out the oil beneath ANWR has been being access for over a decade — thanks to horizontal drilling.

    There are lots of very inexpensive mining methods available — and already in common use in the mining industry — to keep Pebble Mine from polluting areas around.

    Forest and harvest management techniques developed over the last 100 years can actually increase the health of Tongass.

    … just saying.
