Dear Thom,

You are obviously in sync with working, unemployed, poor Americans and our most fragile ecosystems. Is Barack Obama? He takes money from Goldman Sachs and other multinational corporate donors. He permits Shell Oil to drill offshore in environmentally sensitive Arctic regions. He has given BP a new permit to explore and drill in deep water areas of the Gulf of Mexico. He has waged war on the environment through restricting new EPA clean air and water regulations. He has waged war on the Gray Wolf in the Northern Rockies and other parts of our country. He is still contemplating permits for the Keystone XL pipeline to the contamination of the largest pure water aquifer in the United States. He has promoted both new nuclear power plants and “clean” coal. He has not heeded environmental advice from independent scientists. Not to mention, we are still engaged in two+ wars. As a biologist, I must declare Barack Obama an environmental disaster. In fact, it appears that our President maintains the same scorched Earth policies as most environmentally oblivious ultra pro-growth republicans. The DNC is doing nothing to bring forward any viable candidate who would be more sympathetic to our environment. It is time for the DNC to draft a primary election challenge to Mr. Obama. Earth needs a green leader.

Democracy Itself Is on Trial

Thom plus logo While Donald Trump is on trial in the Senate impeachment hearings, many commentators are pointing out that the Senate is also at trial. Few, however, are pointing out that the fare and future of our country may will also be decided by this trial.
