RIGHT-WING POLITICS MEANS TRASH THE PLANET

Conservative politics in much of the world now means doing whatever can be done to turn a profit for some company or crime syndicate. Less than 35 years ago it was a Republican President who banned DDT and singed the Endangered Species Act into law–Richard Nixon. That would never happen now with a Republican President. “Conservative” and “conservation” now share only the same ancient root word but little else.
Poland now has a right-wing government and it is bent on logging one of Europe’s few remaining ancient forests, despite court orders to stop the logging.
