California Is Preparing to Defend Its Waters From Trump Order 12.1.2018 Truthout - All Articles
In its first act to shield California from the Trump administration's repeal of regulations, the state's water board has prepared its own rules protecting wetlands and other waters. The proposed new rules could insulate the state from President Donald Trump's executive order to roll back the reach of the Clean Water Act.

Can Hunters and Activists Team Up to Phase Out Lead Bullets? 11.1.2018 Truthout - All Articles
Truthout takes zero advertising money -- instead we rely on readers to sustain our site. Will you join the thousands of people who fund our work? Make a donation by clicking here! For centuries, hunters have relied on lead ammunition to quickly and humanely kill game, but with each shot they release a potentially lethal poison into the environment, threatening vulnerable animal populations. While harmless to humans, the gut piles and carcasses hunters regularly leave behind often contain lead fragments, which can be deadly for scavengers who eat them, particularly raptors like bald and golden eagles, California condors and turkey vultures. Consequently, a seemingly unlikely alliance between sportspeople and environmental activists has formed to tackle the issue by advocating for copper and other non-lead options and promoting hunters as environmental stewards.  Hunter Russell Kuhlman, who serves as the Institute for Wildlife Studies' non-lead ammunition outreach coordinator for California, says, "I think ...

More roads in grizzly bear habitat means more deaths 10.1.2018 Environmental News Network
It’s simple math, says a University of Alberta conservation biologist. More roads equals fewer grizzly bears.In a recent study examining a non-invasive DNA (hair collection) dataset of grizzly bear activity in British Columbia, Clayton Lamb and his colleagues determined what scientists have long suspected: higher road density leads to lower grizzly bear density—a critical problem for a species still rebounding from a long period of human persecution.

GOPspeak: Fighting the Anti-Trump Bias One Word at a Time 23.12.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Yes, Trump is correct, there is a definite bias against the Republican Party. It's called quantifiable reality. When accurately reported, we call it "truth." And when people are exposed to truth and tellers of truth, they tend to turn against Trump and his loyalists. Truth, it turns out, is biased. Those exposed to it often think differently, become different people, and as such, vote differently. Neither truth nor the realities it supports are balanced. For the Trump team, reality is a motherfucker and has to be suppressed at all costs. An Anti-Trump Conspiracy Journalists, when they do their jobs, report the truth. This puts the press part and parcel at the center of an anti-Trump conspiracy. By the very nature of their profession, they conspire to build on each other's work, pick up where others leave off, and craft their reporting around growing bodies of evidence, growing like cancers on the dreams of fascists. At the core of this truth-telling conspiracy are words. Without words journalists could ...
