And they just halted environmental research and will freeze the dissemination of findings.
As many of you know, I am studying environmental biology. I care very deeply about the environment and want to do all the work I can to make sure that this planet is sustained for future generations.
In the past few days, the USDA has been notified that they should cease any outward distribution of information, as the Trump administration may want to influence the distribution of their findings.
This is no small thing for America. This is terrifying. Especially for those of us who want to go into fields that involve environmental research. How long will this last? I have no idea, but I am going to keep plugging along until the end is in sight.
On top of this, Trump has signed an executive order starting DAPL back up. I protested this. I was overjoyed when there was a halt that was put on it. Now I am furious. What am I supposed to do now? Don’t answer that. It’s rhetorical.
Those of us who care will prevail. I will not be silent. I will not go quietly into the night.
