Repeal and Disgrace

Last week, Donald Trump signed executive order that seek to stop federal action on climate change, including eliminating the EPA's Clean Power Plan. Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune writes about why Trump's actions are "disgraceful, irresponsible, and"—crucially—"of dubious legality."

http://click.emails.sierraclub.org/?qs=d76aa962546ab63ad002bebe29a8ba913cafbcb93d6c433bd480d422228d6ed72ef5b6ed71a6db5b878aa412ace9502a21720fe4dcd45b5c Read Brune's post to learn why the Sierra Club believes these attacks won't hold up in court.

Defend the Clean Power Plan

President Trump's executive order last week is an attack on clean air, public health, and the climate—but we can fight back. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt can't get rid of the Clean Power Plan without a long public process, and an outpouring of public outrage can help turn the tide and defend the climate.

Water Is Worth More Than Coal

The effects of coal mining on public lands don't end at the mine itself. Just ask L.J. and Karen Turner, who have been ranching in Wyoming's Powder River Basin for decades. The Turners have watched their water supply gradually dry up after Peabody Energy's Antelope Mine began operating 10 miles downstream from their ranch.

Time to Bury This Pipeline

President Trump may have approved the permit to build the Keystone XL pipeline, but the decision is ultimately up to the Nebraska Public Services Commission, which is taking public comments on the state permit for KXL right now. This pipeline is bigger than Trump. It's about Native American nations whose land and water are threatened; farmers and ranchers whose land would be taken away in the name of corporate profits; and special places like Nebraska'sSandhills, home to threatened wildlife.

Buzzkill

More than 4,000 wild bee species are native to North America and Hawaii. Of the nearly 1,500 species the Center for Biological Diversity has tracked, over half are in decline. Taylor Ricketts, a bee expert at the University of Vermont, thinks that farmers, equipped with an app, could help prevent endangered wild bee populations from collapsing.

Can Cash-Register Receipts Be Recycled?

Cash-register receipts are one of the most common features of day-to-day life. They get shoved into backpacks and back pockets with abandon and often are tossed into recycling bins like most paper. But should they actually be recycled?

Hog Hell

In this Sierra magazine video report, community advocate Devon Hall and Waterkeeper Alliance activists Kemp Burdette, and Rick Dove talk about the hog CAFO industry—a form of industrial meat processing that has led to enormous environmental damage and a public health disaster.

Where the Trails Were Only Made by Creatures

Experienced mountaineer and wildlife photographer Carl Battreall has trekked over 200 glaciers and led dozens of trips into Alaska's backcountry. The photos in his new book, Alaska Range, span eight years during which he hiked, skied, and flew over some of the most unexplored wild places of the range, including remote areas of Denali National Park and its contiguous preserves. "I wanted to go into those areas where no one had been," he told Sierra, "that weren't protected by national parks."

Taking It to the Streets

And if you can't make it to Washington, sign up for a Sister March closer to home.

Trump's Futile Folly

In scarcely two months of Donald Trump's presidency, the United States has renounced its world climate leadership and become the planet's biggest impediment to tackling the climate crisis. Our president is now an international pariah and the only world leader who denies climate science. It's no wonder his approval rating has collapsed. But unlike Trump, clean energy is extraordinarily popular.

If You Hafta Renegotiate NAFTA

Donald Trump says he wants to renegotiate NAFTA, but given the makeup and predilections of his cabinet, there is a real chance he would actually make it worse. Renegotiation of NAFTA must focus on climate action, clean air and water, healthy communities, and good jobs.

Kosovo Needs Clean Energy, Not More Coal

Right now, New York–based ContourGlobal is on the brink of signing a contract with the government of Kosovo to help build a new coal-fired power plant. ContourGlobal needs to know there is strong opposition to building new coal plants around the world, especially when cost-competitive clean energy options exist.

http://click.emails.sierraclub.org/?qs=d76aa962546ab63ae3a5add4762fa86722d8f0dc25dbdde548735da38481bc150eec8d8ac2b8af7dcdeea9fece56bb207c8437d88a2456e749003bf03a726988 Tell ContourGlobal CEO Joseph Brandt to support clean energy development in Kosovo instead of building a new coal plant.

Change the Nominee, Not the Rules

The Senate will vote this Friday on the nomination of President Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch. Democrats may filibuster, meaning Gorsuch will need 60 votes in order to be confirmed. But Senate GOP leaders say they will change the rules and exercise the "nuclear option" to force the nomination through. Gorsuch, who has sided with corporations more than 90 percent of the time, has dodged basic questions about protecting the environment during his confirmation hearings.

Call 1-866-943-8027 and tell your senators to vote no on confirming Gorsuch. If Trump's nominee can't garner 60 votes to overcome a filibuster, it's the nominee, not the rules, that needs changing.
