Resist the Trump Administration’s Regressive,
Anti-Environmental Agenda, and Empower a Progressive, Pro-Ecological Agenda to Make America Even Greater!
Meetings # 3,473 - According to DENNIS NELSON, an energy-environmental researcher, writer, speaker, and organizer:
"The most serious institutional threat to environmental protection and environmental quality is now President Donald Trump, his administration's cabinet members, and the extreme agenda of the Republican Party. I will bring newer and different material to help with the RESISTANCE to the Trump fiasco, and the EMPOWERMENT in challenging those die-hard Trump apologists who still want to give him a chance. My topics will include: How the Trump Administration is destroying the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA); the Trump Administration's continuing climate science denial/climate policy delay; the Trump Administration's attack on our ocean protections and marine national monuments; renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA); stopping Trump from starting a nuclear war (a great eco-threat which must be reemphasized); the Trump Administration's agricultural and food policy; and what role do energy markets and government intervention have in determining our energy policy. The extreme agenda of the Republican Party will also be discussed. What we need is a good, solid, progressive-populist agenda for public and environmental health, climate protection, eco- justice, economic well-being, and national/global security, and make America an even greater nation."
