Patagonia's CEO Is Ready To Lead The Corporate Resistance To Donald Trump 18.6.2017 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
NEW YORK ― On a cloudy May morning, Rose Marcario, the chief executive of outdoor retailer Patagonia, stared out a second-story window of a Manhattan restaurant, watching construction workers jackhammer the street below. The workers made her think of her grandfather, an Italian immigrant who, after making it through Ellis Island in the 1920s, got his first job digging the streets of this city. He earned 10 cents a day and had to bring his own shovel. People regularly spat at him and sneered at his broken English.  “He’d tell me, ‘I didn’t mind that, because I knew that someday in the future, you were going to have a better life,’” she recalled.   His sacrifice has been weighing on Marcario lately. She isn’t a parent herself, but she thinks of her young cousins, nieces and nephews. She wants them to inherit a planet with a stable climate and normal sea levels ― a country that still has some pristine wilderness left. Her job ― running a privately held company with roughly $800 million in annual revenue and ...

Trump Order Could Open Up Area Larger Than Yellowstone to Drilling 13.5.2017 Truthout.com
In addition to Bears Ears and Grand Staircase, monuments now threatened under Trump's newest decision to review national monument protections include Upper Missouri River Breaks in Montana and Carrizo Plain -- which is the last remnant of a vast grassland that once stretched across California. (Photo: Bureau of Land Management / Flickr ) More than 2.7 million acres of iconic US landscape could be at risk from fossil fuel exploration following Donald Trump's decision to review protections on national monuments, an Energydesk investigation can now reveal. Trump issued an executive order last month requiring the Department of Interior to review 27 monuments designated since 1996 -- suggesting they could pose a barrier to energy independence. Energydesk can now reveal that an area of protected land larger than Yellowstone national park could be at risk from drilling as a result -- with six national monuments affected by the executive order sitting above known or potential reserves of oil, gas and coal.

Trump's Plan to Dismantle National Monuments Comes With Steep Cultural and Ecological Costs 8.5.2017 Truthout.com
In the few days since President Trump issued his Executive Order on National Monuments , many legal scholars have questioned the legality of his actions under the Antiquities Act. Indeed, if the president attempts to revoke or downsize a monument designation, such actions would be on shaky, if any, legal ground . But beyond President Trump's dubious reading of the Antiquities Act, his threats also implicate a suite of other cultural and ecological laws implemented within our national monuments. By opening a Department of Interior review of all large-scale monuments designated since 1996, Trump places at risk two decades' worth of financial and human investment in areas such as endangered species protection, ecosystem health, recognition of tribal interests and historical protection. Why Size Matters Trump's order suggests that larger-scale monuments such as Bears Ears National Monument in Utah, or the Missouri River Breaks National Monument in Montana, run afoul of the Antiquities Act because of their ...
