The coal-addicted right-of-centre Australian government is likely to break its pledge not to fund the proposed Adani monster coal mine in Queensland. Adani's unbankable, Great-Barrier-Reef-trashing mine is one step closer, with preliminary approval being granted for the federal government to hand over a billion taxpayer dollars for a nearly 400km rail corridor to serve the mine. Campaigning for the 2 July election, which returned him with a one-seat majority, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull s...

Standing Rock Reservation, Oceti Sakowin Camp. North Dakota, November 27, 2016 — In the past year the world has witnessed an all-out attack on oaths central to the promises made to the Indigenous People of these lands, as well as many oaths this country was founded upon.

The results of the Proposition 53 vote are disappointing for those who care about salmon, the Delta and the public trust. However, there is no doubt that if an initiative solely requiring a public vote on the Delta Tunnels had been on the ballot, it would have been decisively approved by the voters. Unfortunately, Governor Jerry Brown and the California legislative "leadership," while falsely portraying themselves as "environmentalists," for several years have failed to support legislation...
