Have written about the stuff many times before. My first blogpost was titled Over persistent three eyed frogs and geologic time.

Wheeler is an ex coal lobbyist and the perfect sort of tool that Trump likes to grab from the business lobby. But a lot of blowback on this is coming from GOP politicians from red states that have been greatly impacted and things might get interesting.

David Bernhardt has been nominated by our President to be the new Secretary of the Interior. This ex oil lobbyist is all about rolling back species protection and drilling everywhere we can in this great country of ours. If you hate the environment, and don't really give a shit about public health, these picks should all really please you.
