Countless Archaeological Sites at Risk in Trump Oil and Gas Auction 14.3.2018 Truthout - All Articles
On March 20, the federal government is scheduled to auction off almost 41,000 acres in southeast Utah to oil and gas companies under expedited lease sales ordered last year by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. The push to lease these public lands would mean that archaeologists and Native Americans will not have a chance to fully document what's at stake. Carvings line a rock formation in the Nine Mile Canyon area of Utah. Such archaeological are currently threatened by the Trump administration's push to lease public lands.

'Even Forests and National Parks Are Racist?!' Not! 9.1.2017 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
As an immigrant from Jamaica, I yearned for the experience of Hope Gardens on Sundays, or Sunday afternoon drives when "Brother Reggie" piled all the children in the open back of his truck and took us exploring the countryside. We dressed up for Sundays at the botanical gardens where young and old went to relax and stroll among the exotic blooms, or lie on manicured lawns under lofty Royal Palms soaking up the ambience. Some of my best times as a teenager and young adult were Sundays spent in exquisite Hope Gardens, Kingston. Newly arrived in Rockland County, upstate New York I craved similar experiences. I went to Bear Mountain my first fall and had my mind completely blown by the vastness and variety of colors on the trees! I'd seen postcards but had no idea such scenes could be real. Every year I organized a Memorial Day picnic in a park, even if it was still snowing. Seeing this unlimited view of fall leaves expanding around Bear Mountain State Park upstate New York redefined my idea of what is ...

Will New Mexico Double Down on Dirty Energy? 15.3.2015 Truthout - All Articles
The future of energy development in New Mexico’s Four Corners region is at a crossroads. The San Juan Generating Plant is slated to shut down half of its coal-burning capacity in 2017 and a new energy replacement plan must be decided upon. The Four Corners, where New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, and Utah intersect, was dubbed a national energy sacrifice zone in a report by the National Academy of Sciences during the Nixon Administration. The area has been mined for coal and uranium and drilled for oil and gas for decades. The Four Corners Generating Station, a coal-fired power plant near the San Juan Generating Plant.
