If the government gets away with this, there will be nothing stopping any corporation from building what ever they want and taking your land or polluting your local area. Are people so ignorant not to realise this?

The only thing this "President" and his Cabinet of horror needs is to be boycot by everyone and in any way - he's not allmighty although he thinks he is... I only think of him as a personified Meltdown in any case...

Petition signed from the shared link.

I wonder if The Donald will even last a month. I also wonder what will happen when so many protesters will show up. What is he going to do - put them in jail, put the military on them, shoot them? This man scares me.

My sincere thanks for your posting Wendy. Indeed, worldwide citizens need to stand together against any person who would endeavour to act in such blinkered ways. He has yet to learn that everythig is connected, we are all part of the web of life...damage, harm or destroy one thread and the whole web will shake. He too would be effected... nothing would protect him.

None of this is surprising. It was expected by everyone that saw what this man was truly about. The unfortunate thing is that our petitions will have a hard uphill battle with someone like this in control.

"We will resist this with all of our power and we will continue to build the future the world wants to see," said Greenpeace's Annie Leonard
You said it Annie Leonard !!!!

Quoting text:
350.org co-founder Bill McKibben issued a statement declaring the moment "a dark day for reason."
"More people sent comments against Dakota Access and Keystone XL to the government than any project in history."
Progressive lawmakers and climate groups echoed that promise, issuing a chorus of statements condemning the president for "putting the profits of the fossil fuel industry ahead of the future of the planet."

Dave Archambault II, chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe:

President Trump is legally required to honor our treaty rights and provide a fair and reasonable pipeline process. Americans know this pipeline was unfairly rerouted towards our nation and without our consent. The existing pipeline route risks infringing on our treaty rights, contaminating our water and the water of 17 million Americans downstream.

By granting the easement, Trump is risking our treaty rights and water supply to benefit his wealthy contributors and friends at DAPL. We are not opposed to energy independence. We are opposed to reckless and politically motivated development projects, like DAPL, that ignore our treaty rights and risk our water. Creating a second Flint does not make America great again.

Sierra Club executive director Michael Brune:

Donald Trump has been in office for four days and he's already proving to be the dangerous threat to our climate we feared he would be...

Trump claims he's a good businessman, yet he's encouraging dirty, dangerous tar sands development when clean energy is growing faster, producing more jobs, and has a real future. Trump claims he cares about the American people, but he's allowing oil companies to steal and threaten their land by constructing dirty and dangerous pipelines through it. Trump claims he wants to protect people's clean air and water, but he's permitting a tar sand superhighway that will endanger both and hasten the climate crisis.

...Simply put, Donald Trump is who we thought he is: a person who will sell off Americans' property and Tribal rights, clean air, and safe water to corporate polluters.

Friends of the Earth president Erich Pica:

Donald Trump has made it clear that his America does not include the millions of Americans who fought to protect our land, water, sacred cultural sites and climate from dangerous pipelines. Trump has emphatically pledged his allegiance to the oil companies and Wall Street banks that stand to profit from the destruction of public health and the environment.

The movement to defend Indigenous rights and keep fossil fuels in the ground is stronger than oil companies' bottom line. Friends of the Earth and our allies will not give up the fight to stop Trump's agenda and these destructive pipelines.

As Greenpeace executive director Annie Leonard said, "A powerful alliance of Indigenous communities, ranchers, farmers, and climate activists stopped the Keystone and the Dakota Access pipelines the first time around, and the same alliances will come together to stop them again if Trump tries to raise them from the dead."

"We all saw the incredible strength and courage of the water protectors at Standing Rock," Leonard said, "and the people around the world who stood with them in solidarity. We’ll stand with them again if Trump tries to bring the Dakota Access Pipeline, or any other fossil fuel infrastructure project, back to life."

"Instead of pushing bogus claims about the potential of pipelines to create jobs," she continued, "Trump should focus his efforts on the clean energy sector where America's future lives...Renewable energy is not only the future, but the only just economy for today. Keystone, the Dakota Access Pipeline, and fossil fuel infrastructure projects like them will only make billionaires richer and make the rest of us suffer."

Leonard concluded with the promise, "We will resist this with all of our power and we will continue to build the future the world wants to see."
