Straight Talk About Klamath River Water and Salmon - by Felice Pace
A new government legal opinion that will help Klamath-Trinity salmon will do nothing to mitigate or end the high rate of salmon diseases in juvenile salmon migrating down the Klamath River. In 2014 100% of those juvenile fish were infected with diseases that are related to low flows and poor water qulaity. Three tribal governments are silent about these problems because they have agreed to a water deal which maximizes irrigation water diversion and delivery in the Upper Klamath River Basin in...

Interior finally recognizes Humboldt County's right to Trinity River water - by Dan Bacher
“While this authority should have been acknowledged years ago, I am pleased that our arguments on behalf of Humboldt County, the county’s hard work on the issue, and the efforts by the Yurok, Hoopa and Karuk tribes have finally paid off,” said Congressman Jared Huffman (D-San Rafael).

Myanmar Ready For Global Investments And Human Rights For Christmas - by Tomas DiFiore
Have you ever wondered where the gargantuan Big Oil quarterly profits come from? It's not from a hike in gas prices at the pump! It's from toxic plumes and contaminates left behind in a forgotten dump, somewhere on the global landscape. It's profit stained with the blood of unknown names of family members and whole villages, those in forced labor, children, and nameless faces in human trafficking. It's profit realized from prescribed violence, alcohol and drugs and random violence, toxic tres...

Corruption vs Corporate Social Responsibility And Community-Development Funds - by Tomas DiFiore
“People in the world's richest countries are rightly angry at the increasing job losses and house repossessions. What is less understood is that for much longer, failures by banks and the governments that regulate them have caused untold damage to the economies of some of the poorest countries in the world.” From timber revenues to oil and gas development contracts, vast sums of cash change hands. Banks hide the heists by cabinet members of stolen revenues, and the regimes in power invest...

Race, Poverty, And Chemical Toxic Trespass - The Critical Distance Of Vulnerability - by Tomas DiFiore
“The U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB) screened news media reports of 1,275 high consequence incidents over a recent five-year period, 2009–2013. High consequence incidents result in injury, fatality, acute environmental damage, evacuation or shelter-in-place of 500 or more members of the public, onsite property damage greater than $500,000, or offsite property damage. The CSB data do not represent the universe of all chemical incidents.” At the other end of the ...

Honoring Chevron With The Secretary's Award for Corporate Excellence - by Tomas DiFiore
“But we went further in our own assessment of the top 100, we looked at the taxes paid over a period of time and that is why the federal inland revenue service is on the board. We also look at the employment they are generating and they have generated. We look at the level of investment they have in Nigeria and then their contributions in terms of social responsibility.” SIGN THIS PETITION! Tell the State Department: Don't honor Chevron for its "corporate excellence. "http://act.credo...

Plans Halted for Widening Highway Through Ancient Redwoods in Richardson Grove State Park - by Center for Biological Diversity
SAN FRANCISCO— After years of opposition, Caltrans has rescinded its approvals for a controversial highway-widening project that would endanger ancient redwood trees in Richardson Grove State Park, along Highway 101 in Humboldt County. Conservation groups and local residents this week dismissed a lawsuit they filed in federal court in July in exchange for Caltrans abandoning the project approvals and agreeing to restart the environmental review if the agency pursues the project. Caltrans ha...

Big Oil And Bigger Oil - The Financial Times ranked the New Seven Sisters on the basis of resource base, level of output, company's ambition, scale of their domestic market, and influence in the industry.

The New Seven Sisters control about one-third of the world's oil and gas production and reserves. In contrast, remaining descendants o...

Brown Administration Abandons Raid on Fishing License Funds! - by Dan Bacher
The proposed use of the dedicated license funds to "manage" the alleged "marine protected areas" would have been a great mockery of justice, considering that these "marine protected areas" are not authentic ones that actually protect the ocean. The questionable "marine protected areas" created under the MLPA Initiative fail to protect the ocean from fracking, oil drilling, corporate aquaculture, pollution, military testing and all human impacts other than fishing and gathering. Map of...

Save U.S. Rainforest - Deadline Nov. 28 to comment re WA State Olympic Peninsula - by Marilyn
The last remaining rain forest in the US is ringed by the Olympic National Forest. The US Navy wants to make the area the "Pacific Northwest Electromagnetic Warfare Range" (PNEWR). The deadline to do something to save this precious fragile place is coming soon. This is a big, permanent, expanding, military project that will change the fragile Peninsula forever. It will likely be a prototype for militarizing more and more National Forests and Parks. We need real wilderness, not more militariz...

Investments In Developing Economies Renewables, Clean Energy - Hydrocarbon Extraction - by Tomas DiFiore
The 'poor' will do well to be on their own, and need to be technologically self reliant, as public benefits of natural resource production are drowned in contaminated surface waters, bays, and aquifers, or, are mostly lost in a toxic fog of unknown constituents. Many alternative investment soapbox commentaries speak of the plight of the poor having to pay high prices for kerosene and oil to stay warm. They then shift the conversation to solar and wind. The future of drilling is headed offshor...

Brown needs to act now to halt fracking’s toxic threat to our health and environment.” Measure J victory photo courtesy of Protect San Benito.

Tribal Leaders Urge NO Vote On Prop. 1, the Water Bond - by Dan Bacher
Caleen Sisk, Chief and Spiritual Leader of the Winnemem Wintu Tribe, said the water bond, peripheral tunnels, Shasta Dam raise and other water projects now being planned by the state and federal governments are in in reality "one Big Project" that will destroy salmon, rivers and groundwater supplies. “It does not make sense that people are separating the water puzzle into individual pieces, such as: the raising of Shasta Dam, Proposition 1, the Delta tunnels, BDCP, Sites Reservoir, Tempe...
