image Pressure for Federal Protection of Monarch Butterfly Grows as Public Comment Period Closes 120_monarch_butterfly_docentjoyce_wikimedia_commons.jpg original image ( 300x262) - by Center for Biological Diversity
WASHINGTON— More than half a million people called on the government to protect the monarch butterfly today, as the public comment period on protecting monarchs under the Endangered Species Act closed. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service now has nine months to determine whether to propose protections for the iconic orange-and-black butterfly, which has declined by 90 percent in the past 20 years. The agency’s review of the monarch was spurred by a legal petition filed in August by the Cent...

WASHINGTON— The DC Circuit Court of Appeals last Friday rejected yet another attempt by the timber industry to remove federal endangered species protections from the marbled murrelet, a unique coastal bird found in the Pacific Northwest. The appeal was the timber industry’s fifth attempt in the past decade to eliminate protections for the old-growth forests that marbled murrelets call home, despite undisputed scientific evidence that has shown murrelets are continuing to disappear from th...

There is no doubt that Governor's Brown's approval ratings would slip well below 50 percent if the mainstream media and corporate "environmental" NGOs would stop greenwashing the Governor's environmental record and report the truth about Brown's war on fish, water and the environment.

The common link in much of the destruction and mayhem I’ve described in my articles is Jerry Brown, the worst Governor for fish, water and the environment in recent California history. Brown has constantly gushed about his "green energy" and carbon trading policies at press conferences and photo opportunities while he enthusiastically supports the expansion of fracking in California and is rushing the most environmentally destructive public works project in California history, the Bay Delt...

Photo of Sammy Yoro, Jr., of Watsonville with two winter hatchery steelhead caught on the American River in January 2011 by Dan Bacher. The Bureau of Reclamation's abysmal management of Folsom Reservoir and the American River during a record drought has resulted in the destruction of the once abundant steelhead population that anglers, N...

SAN FRANCISCO— The Center for Biological Diversity sued the U.S. Interior Department today (see PDF) for violating three federal laws by rubberstamping offshore fracking off California’s coast without analyzing fracking pollution’s threats to ocean ecosystems, coastal communities and marine wildlife, including sea otters, fish, sea turtles and whales.

“Governor Brown’s oil regulators have issued rules for fracking before they’ve even finished studying it, putting the cart before the horse and endangering lives," said David Braun in a statement before the hearing on behalf of Californians Against Fracking. "Unsurprisingly, this is the same agency responsible for issuing hundreds of illegal permits for the disposal of oil industry wastewater into multiple protected drinking water aquifers."

Water rights attorney and C-WIN Board Member Mike Jackson said, “Evidently after the Bureau of Reclamation’s killing of 95% of the endangered winter-run salmon year last year, the Federal government has decided to propose a much worse water plan for 2015. It’s a much more complicated plan, but if it is approved by the California Water Board it may send both the endangered salmon and Delta smelt to extinction. We will find out soon if the Governor’s office intervenes with the Water Boa...
