“Trump (Moloch)” in green
We issued “Trump (Moloch)” in April, 2017 to protest the anti-scientific, anti-environmental policies of Donald Trump and the Republican party. We designed the poster to mark the San Francisco “March for Science” on April 22.
The poster design is a variation of one that Mark originally created for an international environmental poster exhibit in Japan in 1997. Twenty years after the Kyoto Protocol, Trump’s regressive war on the planet has made this new version of Mark’s old poster feel sadly appropriate.
Less than 100 days in office, Donald Trump has proven himself hell-bent on becoming the most pro-pollution, anti-environmental American president in half a century. From leasing federal lands to the coal industry, to dismantling clean water rules, to reducing fuel efficiency in cars and trucks, the Republicans will make America more toxic and all of our lives shorter, nastier, and more brutish.
We originally offered this poster in exchange for a donation to EarthJustice.
