Leadership must stop looting our precious resources
To the editor:
President Trump is selling our environment. One of President Obama’s last acts was to halt work on the Dakota Pipeline. He chose long-term environmental protection and respect for promises to indigenous people over short-term jobs gain. Tecumseh asked, “Sell the earth? Why not sell the air and the water? Why not sell a country?” Standing Rock has become a symbol of solidarity and resistance. We need to demand that our leadership stop looting our precious resources. Let’s throw out the bums and elect wiser people who understand climate change.
