In the eyes of anti-big government Republicans, the EPA is a bureaucratic overreaching economic scourge that needs to be drastically scaled down if not dispensed with altogether. The hypocrisy of some Republican politicians in dealing with the EPA is breathtaking.
Critics of President Barack Obama's landmark regulation to reduce carbon dioxide emissions almost always highlight a series of flawed studies to attack the Clean Power Plan. In fact, many are often paid for by utility or fossil fuel interests.
Your Meat-Eating Habit Is Killing More Than Just Cows -- says a new report, which cites the land degradation, pollution and deforestation caused by rising global demand for meat as "likely the leading cause of modern species extinctions."
If you felt sorrow for the fate of the Animas River in Southwestern Colorado, please know there are over 5,000 abandoned mines in the Animas river corridor that need remediation. Colorado alone has over 22,000 such mines.
The facts are slippery when it comes to the great fracking debate in America, where truth, lies, and spin often collide, and end up leaving us confused and dizzy -- all thanks to the courtesy of the powers that be.
Getting our own house in order by creating a common-sense solution to fix preventable methane leaks should make it easier to build a convincing case for other countries to take meaningful action on climate.
The final Clean Power Plan is the most significant single action any president has taken to date to tackle climate disruption. It establishes the first-ever set of national carbon limits on power plants, our biggest source of the pollution that's throwing our climate into chaos
If we do not work now to curb the impacts of climate change on species, one in six wildlife species could face extinction in the next 75 years. This is an outcome that is simply unacceptable.
To understand the impact of these new draft rules, it's important to look at what they do - and what they don't - and measure them against the nation's bold but readily achievable goals set out by the Obama administration earlier this year.
Fox 'News' finally finds reason to 'care' about the environment; Hillary Clinton draws a bright green line around Arctic drilling; EPA tells oil and gas industry to cut the methane; and Islamic leaders call on Muslims worldwide.
On Tuesday the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) took another step to make good on the Obama administration's pledge to limit U.S. greenhouse gas emissions 26-28 percent by 2025 by proposing the first methane emissions rules for the nation's oil and gas industry.
This month the industry's biggest lie -- that it can be trusted with our water -- is once again on display as another mining disaster has spilled millions of gallons of toxic mining waste and chemicals into our streams, rivers and lakes.
The EPA had to do more inspecting to bolster its argument for Superfund designation and accidentally breeched a secret dam built inside the mine to hold back accumulated snowmelt, unleashing three million gallons of poisonous sludge.
In the last month alone, asbestos contamination has plagued a veterans' medical center in Denver, construction workers rehabbing a school in southern Illinois as well as an elementary school in the state, and potentially, a popular river and drinking water source in Colorado.
Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded.
Unlike the climate issue that Inhofe famously asserts does not exist, yellow and poisoned rivers are a bit harder to wish away. Blaming the problem on EPA's competence is more posturing than policy.
