Trump tore up protections for Tongass National Forest, one of the world's largest carbon sinks.

Donald Trump will not be the U.S. President for much longer, but he's still wreaking destruction on the environment. In fact, less than a week before Election Day, he rolled back protections for one of the world's largest carbon sinks and the largest national forest in the country, Tongass National Forest in Alaska. As a huge temperate rainforest, Tongass is a rare, special place — and hugely necessary in the fight against climate change. But Trump just gave the go-ahead allowing logging corporations to roll through and chop down whatever they like. Including ancient, old-growth timber.

These companies will now be permitted to bring their huge, noisy, destructive equipment into this sanctuary to fell more than 188,000 forested acres to become timber. On top of that, they will also be destroying animals' homes. Brown bears, Sitka black-tailed deer, wild Pacific salmon, and trout all flourish there in abundance. But now, many of them will inevitably die. Trump has no mandate to continue ravaging the earth. In three months, he's out — and we have to stop him from wrecking the planet for decades to come. Sign the petition to demand that Congress act immediately to replace protections on Tongass National Forest before it is utterly destroyed!

Thank you for all that you do,

P.S. Tongass is a special and beautiful place, but if we don't act fast, it could all be decimated. Tell Congress to restore protections to this pristine ecosystem now!
