If There's Going to Be a Wall, Let It Be This Collaboration Between American and Mexican Designers 21.4.2017 Mother Jones
This story was originally published by Fusion and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. When President Trump appealed to the public to submit proposals for his "big, beautiful" border wall, you can be pretty sure that the plan presented by the Mexican American Design and Engineering Collective (MADE) was not what he had in mind. In response to the president's mad quest to build a wall along the US-Mexico border, the group of 14 designers, engineers, builders, and architects from the US and Mexico proposed something entirely different—a high-tech "ecotopia" called Otra Nation. "Otra Nation will be the world's first shared co-nation open to citizens of both countries and co-maintained by Mexico and the United States of America," the group says in their proposal .

Pesticide maker Dow Chemical tries to kill risk study 21.4.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
WASHINGTON — Dow Chemical is pushing a Trump administration that’s open to scrapping regulations to ignore the findings of federal scientists who point to a family of widely used pesticides as harmful to about 1,800 critically threatened or endangered species. Lawyers representing Dow, whose CEO is a close adviser to President Trump, and two other manufacturers of organophosphates sent letters last week to the heads of three of Trump’s Cabinet agencies. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt announced last month that he would reverse an Obama-era effort to bar the use of Dow’s chlorpyrifos pesticide on food after recent peer-reviewed studies found that even tiny levels of exposure could hinder the development of children’s brains. For four years, federal scientists have compiled an official record, running more than 10,000 pages, indicating that the three pesticides under review — chlorpyrifos, diazinon and malathion — pose a risk to nearly every endangered species they studied. Regulators at the three ...
