Letter: Bundy vs. biodiversity 22.4.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Thank you for the editorial, “Bundy is a lawbreaker, not a hero” (April 15). In addition to Cliven Bundy flaunting federal authority over public land, he’s violating the Endangered Species Act. The lands that his livestock are trespassing on are designated critical habitat for the Mojave desert tortoise, a species threatened with extinction. If human-caused threats to a species aren’t removed from critical habitat, the very survival of that animal or plant is compromised, and this also affects t...

Spotlight on Green News & Views: Keeping fossil fuel in the ground, this land is not your land 17.4.2014 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
Moorhen and babies . Many of the dozens of environmentally related posts that appear at Daily Kos each week don't attract the attention they deserve. So, more than seven years ago, a new feature was launched to highlight those diaries. Initially called Eco-Diary Rescue, the name was change to Green Diary Rescue after a couple of years. Now, after nearly 17,000 green diaries have been rescued, the name is changing again. From now on, because of the growing number of diaries being posted at the site, Spotlight on Green News & Views will appear twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays. As has all along been true, inclusion of a diary in the Spotlight does not necessarily indicate my agreement with or endorsement of it. Choose Wisely —by Michael Brune: "The Climate Action Plan that President Obama announced last year is full of good ideas, and his administration has already done more to address carbon pollution than any other has.

Carbon destroys ocean life as well as our climate 15.4.2014 The Earth Times Online Newspaper - Health News
Air pollution is rarely linked to water pollution, but the strong links will soon be obvious, just as the surface air movement is influenced by the ocean currents and the temperatures of both. While scientific models can tell us what is going to happen as the earth warms, climate change will also be influenced by small so far neglected fluctuations in chemistry such as these pH changes in our oceans, affecting billions of creatures, and of course, us.

AP Goes to Occupy Movement-Supporting Enviro Group For Comment on Bundy Ranch Standoff 14.4.2014 NewsBusters
Guess who's all of a sudden standing up for law and order? Why, it's radical environmentalists, who despite their general disdain for lawful behavior have felt compelled to speak out in support of the Bureau of Land Management's attempts to round up Cliven Bundy's cattle and ultimately force the Nevada rancher to abandon his family's century-old business. Martin Griffith at the Associated Press relayed the comments of one such group in a Sunday report in the aftermath of the BLM's abandonment of its roundup efforts, in Griffith's words, "after hundreds of states' rights protesters, some of them armed militia members, showed up at corrals outside Mesquite to demand the animals' release" (There's much to it than that; go this archived Drudge Report page for more; bolds are mine throughout this ...
