Obama Designates Polar Bear Protection Area In Alaska, Could Restrict Future Oil And Gas Drilling
Aww @ the picture!
It is the right of a citizen in today’s capitalist society to complain about economic impacts of an environmental policy. But it is the duty of a human being as the most powerful species on the planet to protect endangered species.
As such, I find it quite pathetic that all we worry about are jobs, when we can start drilling the earth for more oil, and how much money we’d make / lose as a result of this policy decision. Granted that jobs are important, so are animals, and the planet.
