Comments Off on Keystone XL battle should be about food security and climate change, not economics

As we await President Obama’s veto of the Keystone XL  pipeline, expected later today, news outlets far and wide are recapping the evolution of the debate. Unfortunately, the headlines often focus on the economy and only mention some vague connection to the environment. In reality, the Keystone XL battle isn’t just about money. It is about reducing fossil fuel emissions and protecting the land necessary for our food and water supplies.

New York’s fracking ban is the cue for eco-activists to mobilize

Comments Off on New York’s fracking ban is the cue for eco-activists to mobilize

The ban on fracking in New York State is a great catalyst to inspire  grassroots environmental groups to come together. Shortly after Governor Andrew Cuomo’s decision to ban fracking due to health and safety concerns of residents, clean air, and drinking water, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf issued a response that said he was opposed to a ban and would make sure fracking was “ safe .” A big piece of Wolf’s election promise was to slap a severance tax on dirty shale gas and use it to pay for schools, transportation , budget-balancing, etc. That sounds attractive from the sidelines, but it’s actually really scary how much new drilling will occur. Now is the time to reallocate resources from coast to coast, and get mobilized to stop fracking across the USA.

Chipotle pulls pork from menus after pigs found to be poorly treated

Comments Off on Chipotle pulls pork from menus after pigs found to be poorly treated

The field of ethical meat consumption is a complicated (and arguably oxymoronic) one, but that hasn’t stopped some retailers from working to ensure that the meat products they serve come from animals who are humanely treated. Chipotle is among these retailers, and after finding that pork for over a third of their 1700 locations came from pigs who are farmed in poor conditions, the restaurant chain has pulled carnitas from the menu.

Saying “NO” to the Keystone XL pipeline is just the first step in our environmental revolution

Comments Off on Saying “NO” to the Keystone XL pipeline is just the first step in our environmental revolution

If you’ve checked Facebook in the past week or so you probably know that the Keystone XL Pipeline bill  failed in the Senate, despite aggressive attempts by Mary Landrieu (D-LA) to ensure its passing. But what does this mean for the United States? Does it mean we won’t have all those promised  jobs ? Will it lead us to living in caves because of a lack of energy ? Are we more vulnerable to ebola, AIDS, asthma, and heart disease? No. It just means we’ve shown that the environmental movement is actually going somewhat forward now .

Presentation Says Cheap Gas is a Lie, Despite Industry Claims

Comments Off on Presentation Says Cheap Gas is a Lie, Despite Industry Claims

On June 6th, Fred Heutte’s  presentation to the Northwest Power and Conservation Council Natural Gas Advisory Committee blew away idea of abundant, cheap natural gas  like a compressor station blow-down . Through the use of diagrams from places like the Energy Information Administration , Heutte dismisses conventional claims of energy independence; low-cost and production growth of shale gas up to and beyond 2040; liquified natural gas export terminals; and shale gas replacement of coal and oil for both transport and electricity generation.
