“In the fires in both Chile and Portugal, the culprit was industry lobby for state subsidies for timber plantations,” stated Felipe Grez of OLCA in Chile. “Flammable, water-sucking eucalyptus plantations have been expanding all over the landscape thanks to these dangerous state subsidy schemes, which in Chile came about under Pinochet. Plantations reach right up to the edge of roads and towns...

A month ago, a group of 13 Minnesotans between the ages of 16 and 23 took bold legal action to oppose Enbridge’s proposed Line 3 tar sands pipeline by demanding an official seat at the decision-making table.

The State of Minnesota just released their draft Environmental Impact Statement on Line 3, and it’s a good start—but not good enough. The climate analysis is not nearly as robust as it...

In April 2015, BNSF was reportedly running six 100-car unit trains per week, more than four times as many railcars daily as permitted by the easement, the tribe said. The tracks are adjacent to the tribe’s hotel, casino and other facilities.

“We have all seen that oil trains pose serious, serious risks...
