Analysis of Article: The content of this article is particularly noteworthy because of the severe environmental implications that come with the construction of Trump’s wall, which now seems like an inevitable event. Environmentally, biodiversity will suffer because of its construction, but more significant is its contribution to global warming. The production of cement contributes significantly to greenhouse gas emissions, so making enough to create an enormous concrete wall would have drastic global heating consequences. However, President Trump has denied human-caused climate change in the past, and he even hired Scott Pruitt as the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, a man who openly denies human-caused climate change as well. Knowing all this, it’s no surprise that Trump is taking legislative positions that could potentially damage our environment significantly. So what can people do to prevent this? Well, there are several ways that people can help to prevent the construction of the wall. They can support legislation that opposes the construction of the wall, and join interest groups that lobby against it as well. Protests and boycotts have been very present recently, although they hardly seem particularly effective in really changing anything. The most important action one can take, though, is voting against the Republicans in the 2018 midterm elections. Getting rid of a Republican controlled Congress would essentially completely halt Trump’s efforts in building a wall, as party support is a big driver behind how effectively Trump has taken steps towards building the wall.
