Commentary: Voting For a Sustainable World

 

For the pristine American West environment, there is so much at stake in this presidential election. We have to be continually concerned about sustainability and protecting the environment from the growing manipulation by large destructive corporate interests. These include water and air pollution, destruction of forests and privatization of national forests, large scale copper mining devastation, encroachments on Native American reserves and many more areas of concern. Big changes may be just around the corner, if either of the front runners win. Bernie Sanders makes it clear for him by saying, “Leave it in the ground.”
