This old meme circles back to relevance over and over, as Trump’s steady rollback of Obama-era environmental protections continues this week behind the scenes.
As an addendum, below is a clip from a Fedex commercial, torn from context and re-presented as a cause-and-effect metaphor for Sapiens’s treatment of nature during their brief run on the planet. (And by “brief run” I mean that unless our species lasts another few hundred thousand years, which seems unlikely, even Neanderthals will have proven more successful and robust than their short-lived, destructive, and relatively unsuccessful cousins, Homo sapiens.)
The footprint that marks our time on Earth may be … well, not our own.

I know, macsbooks. One thing I’ll give Trump credit for, though, he is very good at manipulating the media through his Twitter shell game. These environmental rollbacks hardly make the news, so eager are reporters to outdo one another on takedowns of Trump’s silly tweets.
