NRDC

Stand up, speak out, and be heard. Get involved. Oppose Trump's immigration ban. Take action. Today. Each of us has a stake
Whatever uncertainty there is about Donald Trump's actual agenda as president -- or more fundamentally about the legitimacy of his presidency -- there can be no doubt about his hostility to environmental protection and progress.
For Northern Dynasty -- and for any potential partner - the hard truth is that the Pebble Mine is going nowhere.
Unfortunately, although we depend on the Fisheries Service to get it right, its latest authorization to the Navy just this

The Pebble Mine should be terminated - once and for all. And when that day comes, when the only thing left of The Pebble Partnership is a mountain of legal bills, don't be surprised if the company's last gasp is an attempt to pass them on to U.S. taxpayers.
Deterioration continues in the financial condition of Northern Dynasty Minerals ("Northern Dynasty" or "NDM") -- a small Canadian exploration company, and the only remaining investor in the once formidable Pebble Limited Partnership ("Pebble").
On May 4, several environmental organizations filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), calling for an end to the regulatory exemption it carved out in the late 1980s for the oil and gas industry with regards to how it handles industrial waste.
While the Pebble Mine scheme may appear all but dead, Northern Dynasty's outside lawyers are alive, kicking, and doing very well indeed. As long as there is money to fund their pursuit of frivolous claims, look for this to continue.
This week the US House Committee on Oversight and Reform is holding two hearings on the mess in Michigan. I expect we will hear more of the same from the folks who created this disaster when they testify in DC.
The mess in Michigan has yet to be cleaned. Despite all the national attention and big talk from politicians who should share blame for the poisoning of Flint, very little has been done to improve the core problems with the city's water crisis.
Changes in leadership and public health proclamations are not enough. Flint residents need answers, accountability, and changes in the way that our nation's safe drinking water laws are implemented in Michigan.
Paris was abuzz. At the Chamber of Commerce, 200 adults in business suits, wearied by two hours of oil companies' execu-speak, slammed coffee at the 11 a.m. break. There I was, a 5-foot-3 15 year old in a ponytail in a room full of blue suits and gray hair. I felt so out of place.
My husband George and I were honored to participate as members of the NRDC delegation. Our agenda included an endless array

Any legislative roadblock that makes it harder for business to operate in the state will have harmful long-term effects for Ohio's economy and environment. Until Ohio fixes this flawed law, the state will have to sit on the sidelines while others it by.
Make no doubt about it: This is a public-health disaster that requires city, state and federal leadership and cooperation, including more transparency about how Flint's drinking water is tested and treated.
