Don’t let Trump roll back basic environmental safeguards!

Jim Davis   Website

The Trump administration is going after one of our bedrock environmental laws: the National Environmental Policy Act.

The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) empowers local communities to protect themselves and their environment from dangerous, rushed, or poorly planned federal projects. Unfortunately, changes being considered by the Trump administration could make this simple public participation a thing of the past.

Don’t let this administration cut the public out of decisions about our public lands and environment. Here’s how you can take action now in three easy steps:

1. Copy the following message:

The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) is a critical law that has empowered local communities to protect themselves and their environment from dangerous, rushed, and poorly planned federal projects for over 45 years. I am strongly opposed to any changes that would in any way restrict public input, limit consideration of project alternatives, establish hard deadlines for project approval, or narrow or eliminate federal agencies’ obligations to consider a project’s climate impacts.

2. Paste your message into the comment form on Regulations.gov

3. Personalize your comment, complete the form and hit submit! Tip:  Be sure to uncheck the box that says “I am submitting on behalf of a third party.”

Badger

Badgers are generally nocturnal, but, in remote areas with no human encroachment, they are routinely observed foraging during the day. They prefer open areas with grasslands, which can include parklands, farms, and treeless areas with crumbly soil and a supply of rodent prey.

Badgers are born blind, furred, and helpless. Their eyes open at four to six weeks.

Latin name: Taxidea taxus

Bobcat

Bobcat

Found only in North America, where it is the most common wildcat, the bobcat takes its common name from its stubby, or “bobbed,” tail. The cats range in length from two to four feet and weigh 14 to 29 pounds. Bobcats mainly hunt rabbits and hares, but they will also eat rodents, birds, bats, and even adult deer.

Latin name: Lynx rufus fasciatus
