The Earth and the species who inhabit it—including humanity—should sustain life and not be despoiled by ignorance, greed, and the disregard of science. This puts our planet at grave risk.
The fascist Trump regime is obliterating what few environmental protections exist. We cannot accept this. It withdrew from the Paris international climate agreement, threatening the future of all of humanity.
Several environmental rules are bring reviewed or withdrawn—including ozone and methane emission limits, and air-quality standards for hazardous chemicals. Just ten of those standards save more than 10,000 lives and prevent hundreds of thousands of cases of illness and injury each year.
Contrary to scientific consensus, they have denied publicly that carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels is a main cause of global warming. They have approved and expedited construction of oil pipelines, which increase fossil fuel emissions and accelerate global warming, jeopardizing the existence of Earth.
They seek to block rules restricting leaks of methane, an even more harmful greenhouse gas than CO2, from landfills and from oil and gas wells. They have rescinded federal restrictions on carbon emissions from new and existing power plants.
Trump is aiming to impose a fascist regime on America and the consequences for the people of the world will be deadly. What's needed is a movement of popular discontent in the streets, strong enough to drive them all out of power.
The Revolutionary Communist Party USA supports and co-initiated a coalition of people from diverse political viewpoints, called @RefuseFascism, which recognizes the clear danger of Trump's right-wing extremist programme and is on a mission to drive his whole regime out of power. Join the movement!
