Scott McLean: Power, money and justice

Richard Nixon signed the EPA into law. The Republicans now want to weaken the Endangered Species Act, a centerpiece of EPA regulation. Follow what’s left of the Republicans and you’ll have a world without giraffes, bears, any wild animal. You’ll have chickens and cows.

The earth is burning up. The reality of climate change is about power, money, justice. And the death of the imagination.
