An article in North Dallas Gazette (January 10, 2016) titled “Earth Talk: Why do many green groups oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) governing trade in the Pacific?” (http://northdallasgazette.com/2016/01/10/earthtalk-why-do-many-green-groups-oppose-the-trans-pacific-partnership-tpp-governing-trade-in-the-pacific/) describes the risk that TPP represents for the environment. With its efforts to support a fluid international trade, the TPP has favored large corporations without any enforceable guarantees for environmental protection. In this way, the trade agreement could contribute to global warming through increased exportation of U.S. fossils fuel supplies.  Moreover, the document fails to mention how it will protect from over-harvesting of limited natural resources. Will the current TPP draft be changed to face the critics of the Green groups? How will the environment be affected in the next 10 years if the current TPP agreement is approved?
