The Pebble Mine should be terminated - once and for all. And when that day comes, when the only thing left of The Pebble Partnership is a mountain of legal bills, don't be surprised if the company's last gasp is an attempt to pass them on to U.S. taxpayers.
Deterioration continues in the financial condition of Northern Dynasty Minerals ("Northern Dynasty" or "NDM") -- a small Canadian exploration company, and the only remaining investor in the once formidable Pebble Limited Partnership ("Pebble").
On May 4, several environmental organizations filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), calling for an end to the regulatory exemption it carved out in the late 1980s for the oil and gas industry with regards to how it handles industrial waste.
While the Pebble Mine scheme may appear all but dead, Northern Dynasty's outside lawyers are alive, kicking, and doing very well indeed. As long as there is money to fund their pursuit of frivolous claims, look for this to continue.
This week the US House Committee on Oversight and Reform is holding two hearings on the mess in Michigan. I expect we will hear more of the same from the folks who created this disaster when they testify in DC.
The mess in Michigan has yet to be cleaned. Despite all the national attention and big talk from politicians who should share blame for the poisoning of Flint, very little has been done to improve the core problems with the city's water crisis.

I've been impatiently waiting for the world to come together and combat climate change since the '90s. Knowing the Paris talks would be different th...
Any legislative roadblock that makes it harder for business to operate in the state will have harmful long-term effects for Ohio's economy and environment. Until Ohio fixes this flawed law, the state will have to sit on the sidelines while others it by.
Make no doubt about it: This is a public-health disaster that requires city, state and federal leadership and cooperation, including more transparency about how Flint's drinking water is tested and treated.
The war against clean energy and effective climate action may have several fewer soldiers manning the barricades to foil the public interest.
After years of contentious debate, Keystone XL has been rejected once and for all. This is the behind-the-scenes story of how a small group of unlikely allies turned what everyone expected to be a routine governmental approval process into one of the most heated environmental battles in US history -- and prevailed.
Yesterday, the U.S. finally unveiled the text of the ...
