Squatting trees to stop a coal mine 19.9.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Political Action The occupation of numerous old growth trees in the Hambach Forest (Hambacher Forst) near Cologne, Germany, provides an inspiring and innovative example of grassroots resistance to the carbon-intensive, climate-killing coal industry that we can apply to struggles in this country. The open-pit lignite (a low-grade, brown coal) mine, owned by the German transnational RWE, is reported to be both the largest and most heavily polluting coal mine in Europe. Over a six-year period activists have camped in the 12,000-year-old forest to stop the expansion of the 33-square mile coal mine and protect the last 10 per cent of the forest from being destroyed. An estimated 150 to 250 activists live in 60-70 treehouses year-round. They live without running water (they collect rain water), use a compost toilet, have no electricity (other than what is generated by solar panels), and cook vegan in community kitchens in the treehouses with food collected by dumpster diving. One activist told Democracy Now! ...

Canary in the Coal Pond 23.4.2018 Truthout.com
New reports provide an unprecedented look at contaminants leaking from coal ash ponds and landfills. But the chasm between information and environmental protection may deepen thanks to a proposed Trump administration rollback that would lessen the consequences and weaken requirements for polluting power plants. Coal ash slurry pours into the first of two settling ponds adjacent to the Riverbend Steam Station on Mountain Island Lake in Gaston County, North Carolina, January 23, 2008. (Photo: Jeff Willhelm / Charlotte Observer / MCT via Getty Images) In tests conducted in late 2017, one in three coal-fired power plants nationwide detected "statistically significant" amounts of contaminants, including harmful chemicals like arsenic, in the groundwater around their facilities. This information, which utility companies had to post on their websites in March, became public for the first time under an Obama-era environmental rule regulating coal ash, the waste generated from burning coal. Mixed with water and ...

Ex-Massey Energy CEO Don Blankenship Will Try for a Senate Seat in Coal Country 10.4.2018 Truthout.com
Just when you think the GOP has scraped the bottom of the barrel with political candidates -- like, say, Roy Moore  – they manage to surprise us again. Democrat Joe Manchin's competitor in the race for one of West Virginia's senate seats is none other than Don Blankenship . If his name doesn't ring a bell, that might be because Blankenship has spent the last nine months in jail. He's the disgraced former CEO of Massey Energy , as in, the energy company responsible for a coal mining disaster that killed 29 people  in 2010. The company had racked up over one thousand warnings about unsafe conditions prior to the incident. West Virginia is coal country, so is it really a good move for a man who became the public figurehead of a horrific mining disaster to run for US Senate? Astoundingly, on at least some campaign stops, Blankenship has found support. Massey isn't winning any Democratic hearts and even Republicans are giving him a frosty reception, but in an era of extreme partisan politics, Politico found ...
