State transportation workers are stretched thin battling extreme avalanche danger looming over Colorado’s high country highways. And another 2 feet of snow could fall in the mountains before the weekend. Avalanche mitigation and danger strangled the Interstate 70 corridor on Tuesday after three days of heavy snow and prompted the evacuation of Arapahoe Basin’s guests and employees because of worries about slides on U.S. 6 over Loveland Pass.

Undoing Miami's "Paved Paradise": An Interview with Meg Daly 10.1.2017 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
I recently met Meg Daly, the visionary behind The Underline : a 10-mile long, nature-inspired cycle and pedestrian track that will run through the heart of Miami alongside US Route 1. Inspired by similar projects in New York City, Seoul and Austin, The Underline's 100 feet by 10 mile design, with 120 total acres of open space, will also incorporate green infrastructure systems to manage storm water; improve urban air and mitigate heat; promote biodiversity; and provide recreation space for millions for people. As I travel back to Miami this week for a meeting of The Nature Conservancy leaders, I'm excited to share this story:   Pascal Mittermaier: Can you tell me about your background and what inspired you to start this project? Meg Daly: Well, I'm not an ecologist or urban planner. In my career, I was a marketer--I did promotions for TV stations. But I've always had a passion for parks, especially inner city parks. In my travels to cities I was always drawn to urban green spaces. Four years ago, I had a ...

10 Indigenous and Environmental Struggles -- and How You Can Help in 2017 3.1.2017 Truthout.com
The Black Snake is not yet dead. Far from it. The corporations behind the Dakota Access pipeline made it clear that they "fully expect to complete construction of the pipeline without any additional rerouting in and around Lake Oahe." The winter camps will stand their ground as long as DAPL construction equipment remains on Oceti Sakowin treaty land. We can all continue to support them by  emailing  or calling the US Army Corps of Engineers comment line at 202-761-8700 to ask when it will open the Environmental Impact Statement process to public comment. We can also keep pressure on the banks to divest with our international campaign to  #DefundDAPL . But while international attention has been on the Standing Rock Sioux and the #NoDAPL struggle, the Obama and Trudeau administrations have approved several other pipeline projects slated to run across indigenous territories from Canada to the US and Mexico. The struggle to protect sacred lands from climate change, toxic pollution, and the fossil fuel ...

A New York subway ride that was a century in the making will pull out of a gleaming new station on Manhattan's East Side on Saturday as the long-awaited Second Avenue line takes a select group of dignitaries and construction workers on its maiden run. First proposed in the 1920s, the Second Avenue line has achieved near-mythic status over the years as the best transit idea that New York never built. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Thomas Prendergast, chairman of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the agency that operates the system, are presiding over the ceremonial opening of the first phase, a modest two-mile (3.2-km) stretch along Manhattan's Upper East ...
