Okay, now here’s the good.
In the last couple of weeks, WildEarth Guardians has taken some tremendous strides to confront some of the most significant contributors to global warming, including:
- Together with doctors, moms, and many others, putting Kennecott on notice of an impending lawsuit over ongoing clean air violations at their copper mine in Utah.
- Forcing the Environmental Protection Agency to take action to confront smog in Phoenix.
- Filing suit against Ken Salazar’s Interior Department over their continued refusal to address the link between coal mining in the Powder River Basin of Wyoming and global warming.
- And just yesterday, we filed comment exposing the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed approval of a Nevada clean air plan as an utter step backward and giveaway to fossil fuels.
Also, I just posted a ton of new pictures related to WildEarth Guardians’ Climate and Energy Program on our Flickr site. Among the sets, pictures from the Powder River Basin of Montana and Wyoming, pictures from various parts of Colorado threatened by coal mining, and pictures from our Fossil Fool’s Day rally back in 2009. Stay tuned for more pictures!
And speaking of the threats of coal mining, check out our latest video on the West Elk coal mine and their latest plans to hammer a roadless area in western Colorado. It features Ted Zukoski, a long time supporter and attorney with Earthjustice (check out Ted’s own blog) and some amazing wild country.
And for those wondering, no, I’m not going to post on the ugly. Rick Perry does enough on his own.
