Environmental destruction will likely be the chief outrage of the Trump presidency. Polluters, poisoners, rape-and-run mining companies and climate change deniers see the vacumn in the White House and they are eagerly taking advantage of it. Andrew Sarpolis of the Sierra Club will tell us how environmental activists are fighting these monsters.
