…As President, will you uphold our Endangered Species Act and better fund it, to protect imperiled plants and animals?
“…Supporting the ESA is the right thing to do. This is necessary. Take the coral reefs. They are vital. Fifty percent of our oxygen comes from coral reefs. They are the lungs of the Earth. Not taking care of our ecology? It’s like smoking two packs of cigarettes a day”, Sestak stressed. “This has to do with our way of life. You lose plankton, you lose any of that, you begin to go down. You lose shares? You begin to go down. So, I totally agree. We’ve been to the Galápagos and they’re already having problems there.”
