Find out nature_trumps_all's Instagram Deleting all mention of climate change from the official whitehouse.gov website, doesn’t make the issue #disappear. On the day of Trump’s Inauguration, the website’s page on climate change was replaced with an “America First Energy Plan”. __
The plan doesn’t mention #climatechange or economic growth opportunities available with #renewableenergy. The plan states:
🔺Commitment to “eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule”
🔺Will “embrace the shale oil and gas revolution”
🔺Intends to “refocus the EPA” (Environmental Protection Agency)
🔺take advantage of “untapped shale, oil, and natural gas reserves, especially those on federal lands”

Find out nature_trumps_all's Instagram #OhDeer ⚠️ #ScottPruitt’s confirmation hearing to become the US @epagov Secretary is Wednesday, 1/18. The @nytimes asked readers what questions they want addressed and received over 2,000 responses. Highlights…
_______ ❄️CLIMATE CHANGE 
An overwhelming majority of scientists agree that climate change is happening. People want Mr. Pruitt’s to share:
✔️What sources can be referenced that #climatechange is, according to him, “far from settled”? ✔️What data would he require to be convinced?

_______ 💰CONFLICTS OF INTEREST
As Oklahoma Attorney General, he’s filed 14 suits against the #EPA challenging environmental regulations and described as “cozy” with the #fossilfuels industry. ✔️Is he going to continue advancing industry interests vs. public health & safety?
✔️Will he disclose companies & lobbyists donating to his campaigns and recuse himself from any decisions involving them?

_______ 🚫REGULATIONS & STATES’ RIGHTS
He argues states are in a better position to regulate their environment. Readers argue air and water do not respect state borders, so it is the federal government’s responsibility to regulate these interstate issues. ✔️What success stories can he share in the absence of regulations? ✔️Does his view mean it will not interfere with other states addressing climate change?

_____ 🔎HIS RECORD & RESULTS
Many are puzzled why Pruitt would want to run a federal regulatory agency if he saw federal regulations as a problem.
✔️Does he have ideas for regulating pollutants? Any examples from Oklahoma?
✔️Does he believe in protecting water, air and land from #pollution? Does he believe regulations are the way to do this? If not, how should these resources be protected?
✔️Any EPA actions he believes successful in protecting the #American people and their natural surroundings from harm? How would he improve them?

Find out nature_trumps_all's Instagram During President Obama’s #farewell address, he expressed taking on the challenge of #climatechange. “Now, we can and should argue about the best approach to solve the problem. But to simply deny the problem not only betrays future generations, it betrays the essential spirit of this country—the essential spirit of innovation and practical problem-solving that guided our Founders.” _____

Some U.S. environmental highlights he shared from the past 8 years:
👍🏼Cut dependence on foreign #oil in half
♻️Doubled #renewableenergy
🌎Led the world with the #ParisAgreement, with promise to save our planet 
_____

He cautioned without bolder action “our children won't have time to debate the existence of climate change. They'll be busy dealing with its effects” including: ⚠️more environmental disasters
⚠️more economic disruptions
⚠️waves of climate refugees seeking sanctuary

_____

I encourage you to read the entire farewell address transcript (link below). On a personal note, to me, #PresidentObama is a national treasure and I appreciate his action as a resilient warrior for environmental progress across the globe. I’ll always remember his humble dedication, exemplary grace and integrity demonstrated while in office. I will miss you, #POTUS, and can’t wait to see what you set your sights on next.

Find out nature_trumps_all's Instagram The Rusty patched #bumblebee is now an #endangeredspecies, a 1st in the continental U.S. (this is in addition to recent news of 7 yellow-faced #bee species, native to Hawaii, also placed under the Endangered Species Act). _____

Why is this important?
🐝Protection of nature's pollinators—playing a vital role in the overall ecosystem’s health
🐝Bees and other insects provide billions of dollars' worth of pollination each year (benefiting crops such as tomatoes, cranberries and peppers)
🐝Bees support growth of flowers and wild plants that produce fruits, seeds and nuts essential for natural food chains
🐝Even plants that can pollinate on their own generate bigger fruit when bumblebees do the job instead

_____

Bee colonies have plummeted 87% since the late 1990s. Populations remain in 13 states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin (+ the Canadian province of Ontario). _____

Factors behind recent declines of #bumblebees, #honeybees and #monarchs:
🔺disease 🔺spread of bacteria or viruses from commercially raised species to those in the wild
🔺pesticide exposure
🔺widespread use of long-lasting insecticides
🔺habitat loss
🔺#climatechange 🔺falling populations make it harder for bees to find suitable mates

_____

The Endangered Species Act prohibits significant modification or degradation of habitat that leads directly to death or injury of listed species. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Department (@usfws) recovery plan includes: 🐝Encourage people to provide more habitat and reduce pesticide usage (could also help other bee species and monarch #butterflies)
🐝Seek cooperation from landowners and local organizations on "bee-friendly practices” including use of native flowering plants for landscaping, planting #flowers and trees and avoiding use of pesticides that harm bees

Find out nature_trumps_all's Instagram 63.7 Million Acres—the untapped potential of #ExxonMobil in Russia which is prevented by U.S. sanctions. To put into perspective, #Exxon holds the rights to more acreage in Russia than the rest of its untapped worldwide operations:
⚠️Russia 63.7 million acres
🔹U.S. 14 million acres 🔹Canada 6.9 million acres
🔹Germany 4.8 million acres
🔹Australia 1.5 million acres
🔹The Netherlands 1.5 million acres
🔹Nigeria 1.1 million acres
🔹Papua New Guinea 1.1 million acres

_____

U.S. sanctions (placed due to Russian military interventions in Ukraine) block Exxon’s access to rich reserves in the #Arctic. For background, the exploration contract between Exxon and Russia includes Arctic fields, basins in Siberia and the Black Sea—a $3.2 billion deal, one of the biggest exploration contracts ever, and an investment that could eventually reach $500 billion. 
_____

Mr. Putin awarded Tillerson the Russian Order of Friendship, the country’s highest honor for foreigners, after the deal was blessed. 
_____

Senate confirmation hearings for #RexTillerson, former CEO of Exxon, to be the U.S. #SecretaryofState kicked off today. Questions re: his conflicts of interest, position on climate change and relationship with Russia were raised.

_____

Concerned? Call your Senator. More importantly, call #SenatorRubio. He is stated to currently have the deciding vote to block this nomination. I commend Rubio for his important line of questioning today. 🔹http://www.senate.gov/senators/contact/ (202) 224-3121 🔹Senator Marco Rubio (202) 224-3041

Find out nature_trumps_all's Instagram Trump selected #RexTillerson, CEO of #ExxonMobil, as his #SecretaryofState. His Senate confirmation hearing will be this Wednesday, January 11, 2017. ————————————————————————— What are the concerns if he is confirmed?
⚠️WORK EXPERIENCE: He’s only worked at ExxonMobil
⚠️ THREATS TO THE #PARISAGREEMENT: The State department leads international climate negotiations. Trump promised to withdraw
⚠️DROPPING RUSSIAN SANCTIONS: Trump and Tillerson are sanctions opponents. Exxon has massive projects in the Russian Arctic. Tillerson has a “close relationship” with Vladimir Putin. Sen. John McCain called Tillerson’s ties to Putin to be “a matter of concern”
⚠️#KEYSTONE XL #PIPELINE APPROVAL: Trump intends to approve construction and Tillerson would be responsible deciding whether to overturn President Obama’s rejection
⚠️OPENING #ARCTIC DRILLING: Trump promised opening Alaska to more oil drilling. The State Department plays a role in international bodies including the Arctic Council, where agreements are made on the protection of Arctic environments and its Indigenous communities from impacts of oil and gas projects, including those of ExxonMobil
⚠️RAMP UP #FOSSILFUELS: President Obama played a leadership role in the G20 agreement to phase out fossil fuel subsidies by 2020. Tillerson could reverse U.S. commitments
⚠️FINANCIAL CONFLICTS OF INTEREST. State Department embassies abroad serve as platforms to promote U.S. companies. ExxonMobil operates facilities / markets products globally and explores for oil and natural gas on 6 continents ————————————————————————— Tillerson/ExxonMobil’s Environmental Ratecard:
🔺Long history of funding CLIMATE DENIAL—covering links between fossil fuels and #climatechange
🔺Has caused ENVIRONMENTAL CATASTROPHES (e.g. Exxon Valdez)
🔺Used its trade organization, the American Petroleum Institute, to UNDERMINE CLIMATE INITIATIVES like the Clean Power Plan—even as it publicly called for a revenue-neutral carbon tax to solve #climate change —————————————————————————— 📞Concerned? Call your Senator before Tillerson’s hearing Jan 11th, 2017.

Trump selected #RexTillerson, CEO of #ExxonMobil, as his #SecretaryofState. His Senate confirmation hearing will be this Wednesday, January 11, 2017. ————————————————————————— What are the concerns if he is confirmed? ⚠️WORK EXPERIENCE: He’s only worked at ExxonMobil ⚠️ THREATS TO THE #PARISAGREEMENT: The State department leads international climate negotiations. Trump promised to withdraw ⚠️DROPPING RUSSIAN SANCTIONS: Trump and Tillerson are sanctions opponents. Exxon has massive projects in the Russian Arctic. Tillerson has a “close relationship” with Vladimir Putin. Sen. John McCain called Tillerson’s ties to Putin to be “a matter of concern” ⚠️ #keystoneXL #pipelineAPPROVAL: Trump intends to approve construction and Tillerson would be responsible deciding whether to overturn President Obama’s rejection ⚠️OPENING #arcticDRILLING: Trump promised opening Alaska to more oil drilling. The State Department plays a role in international bodies including the Arctic Council, where agreements are made on the protection of Arctic environments and its Indigenous communities from impacts of oil and gas projects, including those of ExxonMobil ⚠️RAMP UP #FOSSILFUELS: President Obama played a leadership role in the G20 agreement to phase out fossil fuel subsidies by 2020. Tillerson could reverse U.S. commitments ⚠️FINANCIAL CONFLICTS OF INTEREST. State Department embassies abroad serve as platforms to promote U.S. companies. ExxonMobil operates facilities / markets products globally and explores for oil and natural gas on 6 continents ————————————————————————— Tillerson/ExxonMobil’s Environmental Ratecard: 🔺Long history of funding CLIMATE DENIAL—covering links between fossil fuels and #climatechange 🔺Has caused ENVIRONMENTAL CATASTROPHES (e.g. Exxon Valdez) 🔺Used its trade organization, the American Petroleum Institute, to UNDERMINE CLIMATE INITIATIVES like the Clean Power Plan—even as it publicly called for a revenue-neutral carbon tax to solve #climatechange —————————————————————————— 📞Concerned? Call your Senator before Tillerson’s hearing Jan 11th, 2017. #NATURETRUMPSALL SOURCES: @friendsearth http://bit.ly/2iRP9cI @bustle http://bit.ly/2iX1exB

A snapshot of some of their selections… 🔺GLOBAL RECORD SETTING WARM TEMPERATURES. For the 1st time, a record has been set 3 years in a row. Many lawmakers continue claims that warming trends are not real or a product of a scientific hoax. In the real world, the effects are starting to be felt as never before with rising sea levels. 🔺COUNTERING DENIALISTS. Trump calls climate change a “hoax” declaring reversal of Obama’s environmental Paris Agreement and the Clean Power Plan efforts—both intended to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Most Americans say global warming is real. Only 1 in 5 disagree. 🔺LOCAL RESPONSE. Many communities work towards being carbon neutral with better home insulation, hanging laundry to dry, solar panel installation, etc. By engaging on a local, even personal carbon footprint level, it can have a positive impact on the environment and people around you. 🔺NASA’s MISSION. Satellites recently measured the lowest extent of Arctic sea ice ever recorded. As we more carbon is pumped into the atmosphere, scientists warn that the Arctic will lose even more ice as a result of global warming. In a matter of decades, scientists estimate the Arctic Ocean may become ice-free in the summer as well as have a huge impact on the ocean’s ecosystem and the entire Arctic food web. This study was carried out as part of NASA’s Earth Science program, using data largely supplied by NASA’s satellites. Shortly after the it was published, reports came out that Trump’s advisers are pushing to shut down NASA’s study of our own planet.

Find out nature_trumps_all's Instagram Due to receding sea ice relied on for hunting seals, #polarbears are climate refugees around the Arctic village of Kaktovik, Alaska. When compared to just 2 decades ago, the bears are:
❄️Spending more time on shore (20% vs 6%)
❄️Staying on land longer (56 days vs 20 days average)
❄️Going into the winter skinnier & in poorer condition—older & younger bears are less likely to survive • ——
• 
The continuing loss of sea ice does not bode well for the bears, whose existence depends on an ice cover that is rapidly thinning and melting as the climate warms:
❄️The #Arctic is warming 2X as fast as the rest of the planet
❄️2016 was warmer than normal, and the freeze-up came late
❄️The extent of Arctic #seaice was lower than ever recorded for the month of November—an unprecedented 19,000 square miles ice cover lost
❄️19 subpopulations of polar bears inhabit 5 countries that ring the Arctic Circle (Canada, United States, Norway, Greenland & Russia)—a reduction of over 30% in the number of polar bears by 2050 is projected
❄️Climate-change denialists seize on uncertainties in science to argue that polar bears are doing fine and that sea ice loss does not pose a threat to their survival. Wildlife biologists say there is little question that the trend, for both sea ice and polar bears, is downward. • ——
• 
The biggest threat to the polar bear is something no regulatory authority involved in wildlife conservation can address: the unregulated release of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. • ——

Find out nature_trumps_all's Instagram Trump tapped #RyanZinke for Secretary of the Interior (@usinterior)—which oversees millions of acres of federal lands & leads energy exploration of the nations public lands and waters. If confirmed, he'll join the following appointments who'll shape the future of our nation’s energy and #climatechange policies:
🔺#ScottPruitt (for #EPA Secretary @epagov), who built a career out of suing the Environmental Protection Agency
🔺#RickPerry (for #Energy Secretary @energy), who vowed to eliminate the Energy Department
🔺#RexTillerson, Exxon Mobil CEO, to head the @statedept, which negotiates international climate change agreements
——
Trump hopes his secretary will reverse the Interior Department’s role. Obama tasked the agency to advance his climate change, land conservation and renewable energy agenda. Under Obama’s interior secretary, #SallyJewell, the department put forward plans to block oil and gas drilling on expanses of public land and water, freeze new leases for coal mining on public lands, and promote the development of renewable energy on federal property.
——
Zinke would have the authority to reverse most of those initiatives and would likely carry out an aggressive pro-drilling agenda Trump has championed.
——
Background on Zinke:
🔺Montana freshman representative
🔺Low 3% score with the League of Conservation Voters @lcvoters - a very poor “anti-#environment vote" record
🔺Re: climate change “It’s not a hoax, but it’s not proven science either.” When scientists overwhelmingly hold that human-caused climate change is proven

Trump tapped #ryanzinkefor Secretary of the Interior (@usinterior)—which oversees millions of acres of federal lands & leads energy exploration of the nations public lands and waters. If confirmed, he'll join the following appointments who'll shape the future of our nation’s energy and #climatechangepolicies: 🔺 #scottpruitt(for #epaSecretary @epagov), who built a career out of suing the Environmental Protection Agency 🔺 #rickperry(for #energySecretary @energy), who vowed to eliminate the Energy Department 🔺 #RexTillerson, Exxon Mobil CEO, to head the @statedept, which negotiates international climate change agreements —— Trump hopes his secretary will reverse the Interior Department’s role.
