Even among the thousands of bright green golf courses across the nation that routinely douse their fairways with pesticides and fertilizers, the nasty Dow worm-killer known as Curfew has had a hard time finding suitors.

Pesticide Curfew Too Dangerous to Use on Golf Courses Again – Center for Biological Diversity

Donald Trump just approved the Keystone XL pipeline. It's an ugly, cynical move that serves no other purpose than to make Trump's super-rich friends in the oil and gas industry even richer.

We've stopped this pipeline before and with your help, we can stop it again.

Breaking: Trump Approves Keystone -- We're Ready to Fight Back

Trump wants to scrub critical science data on wildlife, climate, sea-level rise, oil and gas projections and much more from government websites.

But we're teaming up with scientists and the Center for Media and Democracy to use a rule known as the 'Beetlejuice Provision' to keep that from happening.

Just say it three times and it'll appear.

Monsoon season in the Sonoran Desert is an amazing time. Powerful thunderstorms can drop massive amounts of rain into the desert in a matter minutes. Sometimes, these thunderstorms collapse and push desert sediment up into vast walls of dust -- as high as 6,000 feet and 50 miles wide -- that can travel at speeds up to 60 mph.

These are Arizona's giant haboobs.

That's exactly what we're trying to find out.


Did Scott Pruitt Lie to Congress While Under Oath?

"In reissuing an expanded approval for this toxic chemical cocktail, the EPA has shown an utter disregard for human health, our drinking water and endangered species like the iconic whooping crane," Stephanie Parent, senior attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity, said.

EPA Sued for Approving Dow's Deadly Pesticide Combo

Bar Complaint Seeks Investigation of EPA Chief's Potential Lies to Congress

Last month, a cyanide land mine set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Wildlife Services detonated in Oregon killing a young male wolf.

Last week, a 14-year-old boy in Idaho watched in horror as his beloved Labrador retriever convulsed and died in front of him -- another victim of one of Wildlife Services' indiscriminate cyanide traps.
