This week Greenpeace airship flew by Glacier National Park with a message to the U.S. Dept of the Interior: KEEP OUR COAL IN THE GROUND.Join the crew of the airship by sending a message to Secretary Jewell today to stop the Interior from leasing public lands to coal companies: bit.ly/XARbjg
Last week, the Interior Dept sold 8 million tons of coal from public lands for just 36 cents a ton to a company that hopes to export much of it. This is hardly living up to the mission of the Interior: “to protect and manage the Nation’s natural resources and cultural heritage.” Read more here: bit.ly/1oys5eH

[BLOG]: TESORO’S CLEANUP OF MASSIVE NORTH DAKOTA OIL PIPELINE SPILL (PHOTOS)

Though the Keystone XL pipeline has been delayed due to popular backlash, oil and related hazardous materials continue to flow through the United States on trains and through pipelinesIncreasingly these pipelines leak, contaminating the surrounding neighborhoodsrivers, and wheat fields with hazardous cancer-causing chemicals like benzene.

Last year in North Dakota a Tesoro pipeline carrying oil obtained by fracking ruptured in a farmers field, spilling an estimated 20,600 barrels over a seven acre area, one of the largest land based spills in US history. The spill was caused by a leak the size of a quarter coin, and went undetected by Tesoro until the farmer drove his combine into a sodden field of oil. Tesoro has recently begun a two year cleanup, during which they will use a”thermal desorbtion” process, involving the excavation and baking of thousands of tons of soil.
