Under Louisiana Bill, Peaceful Protesters Could Face 20 Years in Prison 18.4.2018 Truthout - All Articles
New Orleans, LA, September 21, 2013, The environmental group 350.org's 'Draw the Line' on Tar Sands and the Keystone XL pipeline protest took the form of a second line parade as it made its way through the french quarter. Under a proposed Louisiana law, peaceful protests against pipeline infrastructural projects bear the possibility of prison sentences as long as 20 years, or fines of up to $10,000. (Photo: Julie Dermansky / Corbis via Getty Images) With House Bill 727, Louisiana has joined a growing number of states that are criminalizing nonviolent civil disobedience actions at "critical infrastructure" sites, which typically include pipelines, refineries and electrical power facilities. Financed by Big Oil, the Louisiana bill makes even discussing a possible trespass action punishable with prison sentences of five years and fines up to $10,000.

Appeals Court Reverses Decision Stopping Bayou Bridge Pipeline Work Through Cypress Swamp 18.3.2018 Truthout - All Articles
The empty construction site for the Bayou Bridge pipeline through the Atchafalaya Basin February 25, the day after a district judge granted an injunction halting work. (Photo: Julie Dermansky) This week the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals  reversed a federal judge's temporary injunction   halting work on the Bayou Bridge pipeline  within Louisiana's Atchafalaya Basin. In a 2-1 vote the higher court's decision will allow construction to proceed while the company, Bayou Bridge Pipeline LLC, a subsidiary of Energy Transfer Partners, appeals the injunction. On February 24, US District Judge Shelly Dick, an Obama appointee, granted Earthjustice an injunction in order to prevent irreparable harm to the basin, an environmentally sensitive  National Heritage Area , until the group's lawsuit challenging a US Army Corp of Engineers permit for the pipeline could be heard. Earthjustice had filed this lawsuit January 11 on behalf of the Atchafalaya Basinkeeper, the Louisiana Crawfish Producers Association-West, ...

Activists Block Construction of the Bayou Bridge Pipeline in Louisiana 27.2.2018 Truthout - All Articles
Three activists were arrested Monday during a protest that temporarily halted construction on the Bayou Bridge Pipeline at a site in southeastern Louisiana. For activists, the pipeline -- which is directly connected to the Dakota Access Pipeline -- is not just a threat to sensitive bayous and wetlands, but a potent symbol of the destruction caused by fossil fuels. A protester arrested during a sit-in at a Bayou Bridge Pipeline construction site is lead past pipeline workers. Environmentalists say oil companies should hire more workers to fix leaky and aging fossil fuel infrastructure in Louisiana rather than building new pipelines.

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.

Trump Picks a Big Pharma Profiteer 28.11.2017 Truthout.com
Help preserve a news source with integrity at its core: Donate to the independent media at Truthout. Donald Trump has nominated yet another corporate swamp creature, this time to run the agency that oversees public health. Alex Azar, a former executive and lobbyist for pharma giant Eli Lilly, is Trump's pick to be Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Former HHS Secretary Tom Price resigned in September amid charges that he had taken private planes costing more than $400,000 instead of using commercial air travel. HHS contains 11 divisions, including the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (which also runs Obamacare and the Children's Health Insurance Program), the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control. Azar's nomination follows a Trump administration pattern of filling government posts with private industry executives -- like Secretary of State/former ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson and Treasury Secretary/former Goldman Sachs executive Steve ...

A study of a Lake Erie wetland suggests that scientists have vastly underestimated the number of places methane-producing microbes can survive—and, as a result, today’s global climate models may be misjudging the amount of methane being released into the atmosphere.

How Many More "500-Year Storms" Will People Endure Before They Start Abandoning Coastal Cities? 1.10.2017 Truthout.com
Damaged homes and streets littered with debris are seen after Hurricane Irma passed through the area on September 13, 2017, in Ramrod Key, Florida. (Photo: Joe Raedle / Getty Images) People love living near the coast. Only two of the world's top 10 biggest cities -- Mexico City and Sáo Paulo -- are not coastal. The rest -- Tokyo, Mumbai, New York, Shanghai, Lagos, Los Angeles, Calcutta and Buenos Aires -- are. Around half of the world's 7.5 billion people live within  60 miles  of a coastline, with about 10 percent of the population living in coastal areas that are less than 10 meters (32 feet) above sea level. Coastal migration has been steadily trending upward. In the U.S. alone, coastal county populations increased by  39 percent  between 1970 to 2010. As the population skyrockets -- from 7.5 billion today to 9.8 billion by 2050, and 11.2 billion by 2100, according to a recent United Nations  report  -- the question for sustainability and development experts is, will the world's coasts bear the burden ...
