The U.S. Forest Service today proposed broad revisions to the environmental review process that could greenlight and fast-track destructive activities like logging and overdevelopment. “Once again, the Trump administration is abandoning protections for our treasured natural resources as it moves to end safeguards ensuring that the public has a say before our forests are logged,” Kabir Green, federal affairs director at NRDC.

Newsflash: one million species could soon face extinction. Climate change is accelerating at a breakneck pace, already affecting about half of all threatened mammal species and a quarter of threatened birds. The threat to our climate, and to our biodiversity, are inextricably linked, and there's one clear solution: by saving plants and animals, we can save the world.

When the Trump administration gave the Atlantic Coast Pipeline permission to cross the Appalachian Trail, a federal court said no. National Scenic Trails like the Appalachian Trail are treasures to be protected and set aside for future generations, not sacrificed for the sake of for-profit, privately owned fossil fuel infrastructure. But the Trump administration won’t give up—they’re appealing the ruling, putting fossil fuel interests ahead of our environment, as usual.

BREAKING: NRDC and nine other environmental groups (@earthjustice @sierraclub @healthygulf @centerforbiodiv @defendersofwildlife @foe_us @nccoastalfed @conservationleague) are suing the Trump administration to challenge rollbacks of the 2016 Well Control and Blowout Preventer Rule.  The rule set safeguards to prevent another blowout like the 2010 BP disaster.

This lawsuit seeks to restore protections put in place after the 2010 BP blowout that killed 11 men, spewed over 130 million gallons of toxic crude into the Gulf, and polluted 1,300 miles of shoreline. “The well control rule was one of the most important measures we took, as a nation, to reduce the risk of another BP-style disaster at sea,” NRDC’s Director of Strategic Engagement, Bob Deans.

Our addiction to plastic is a bad look (to put it lightly)🤦‍♀️. Artist @thijs_biersteker reflects (quite literally) on the ever-growing problem of plastic pollution. His traveling exhibition, Plastic Reflectic, is an interactive reflecting pool, but instead of seeing your reflection, viewers see a silhouette composed of small pieces of plastic. It's a powerful statement on our role in toxic pollution. Learn more via the link in our bio.

As far as Sabre Bee (right) is concerned, the the city of Newark has flat-out failed to protect its residents from the escalating drinking water crisis—so she’s taken on the task herself. As cofounder of @cleanwater4newark, Sabre is out in the neighborhoods, handing out educational materials on the dangers of lead exposure and talking with fellow residents (like this shopkeeper on South Orange Avenue) about how to receive one of the filters promised by the city. Sabre knows even that is not much of a solution—the model she received, for example, didn’t fit on her sink and stopped working a month after it was installed. So Sabre resorted to buying her own filter and paying out of pocket for jugs of water each week. All this effort has left her exhausted—and still terrified, especially for the health of her mother, who’s recovering from cancer and shares her home in the North Ward.

Yvette Jordan, a teacher at Newark, New Jersey’s Central High School and a resident of the city’s South Ward, worries about her students. Some haven’t heard of the city’s drinking water crisis when she first tells them, and many don’t yet have water filters installed in their homes to protect against lead. She knows that lead exposure, even at low levels, is particularly dangerous for developing brains. To help spread awareness, she recently included a lesson on environmental justice in her Intro to Social Justice class. They discussed the parallels of the crisis they are facing to the better-known one in Flint, Michigan. “Their response was that it was more of the same,” Yvette says. “They said, ‘OK, we know this is happening, it’s awful, but what do you expect? That’s what we get here.’” Read more: Link in bio.

Americans are connecting the dots between a warmer climate and more devastating disasters across the heartland, as record flooding and storms have washed away billions of dollars’ worth of livestock, crops, and property.

Trump’s response is to try to hide the truth about the growing threats and rising costs of the climate crisis.

It’s time for responsible climate action with sound science, the national interest and our children’s future at its core.

Meet Kiran, Vic, Sahara, and Levi (clockwise from top left), four young climate activists fighting for a livable future with @youthvgov. With 17 other youth plaintiffs in the Juliana v. United States case, they’re arguing that the federal government is violating their constitutional right to life, liberty, and property by taking actions that have knowingly contributed to the climate crisis for more than five decades. But their work as climate activists goes beyond the courtroom. Kiran, 22, is both a musician and member of a collective that organizes concerts to spread awareness of environmental and social justice issues. The singer Patti Smith is one of his biggest inspirations, “because she didn't compromise in her goal of making art.” @connectwithlevi, 11, helps with beach cleanups, eats vegan, and picks up trash on walks with his family. “I fight for what I stand for and don't give up,” he says. “I've also learned to give speeches and talk to adults about something I understand better than they do!” The cl
🌊Happy World Oceans Week! 🌊 In the face of new reports on the climate crisis and biodiversity loss, it can seem difficult to celebrate. But that’s why it’s more important than ever to protect our oceans. And thanks to your support, NRDC has scored some big wins recently against the Trump administration and succeeded in securing protections for our ocean and the life it supports. And we’ll continue, day after day, to keep fighting to protect sea life, secure our ocean sanctuaries, fight harmful offshore drilling, stop overfishing, and make our oceans more resilient to climate change.

Born and raised in Newark, New Jersey, Anthony Diaz (@newarkpolitics ) credits the city for making him into the man he is today: a dedicated community advocate. “There’s so much grit and so much beauty, but it gets overwritten by crime and gentrification and overdevelopment,” he says. “But I love it, and that’s why I continue to fight for it.” Lately, as a cofounder of @cleanwater4newark, that means fighting for clean water for Newark. As lead levels in residents’ tap water continue to rise—and the city’s own response to the crisis lags—the Newark Water Coalition works to pass out filters and inform community members on the risks of lead exposure. (The city’s own distribution program, it turns out, is riddled with problems.) “I would love to have rallies with thousands of people, but today, victory might just mean giving a water filter to one person with lead-contaminated water,” Diaz says. “I’m still showing up to be of service.” Read more: via the link in our bio. -

In June 2017, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection first flagged Newark’s lead levels as exceeding the federal action level. In September 2017, NRDC, along with 10 local and state groups, sent the city a letter requesting quick action to protect its most vulnerable residents. Yet by the the time government officials agreed to take action, Newark residents had been drinking lead-laden tap water for at least 21 months. Now, two years later, we're taking a look back at Newark's ongoing fight for clean drinking water.
A resident of Newark, New Jersey’s West Ward, Shakima Thomas works hard to protect her son, Bryce, from the lead-contaminated water supplied by the city. At 72 parts per billion, the lead levels in their tap water are more than five times the federal action level, and just recently, Bryce tested positive for elevated levels of lead in his blood. Even low levels of exposure to this heavy metal have been linked to potentially irreversible damage to developing brains and nervous sys

Great news! California’s Senate just passed an anti-Trump rollback bill, bringing the state one step closer to ensuring that decades of progress aren’t erased by one administration.

EPA’s proposal for limiting rocket fuel in drinking water is dangerous to public health! This is another Trump administration gift to polluters and water utilities. The toxic chemical perchlorate has already been detected in drinking water systems that serve millions of Americans and even low levels of exposure to the chemical can impair hormone production critical to brain development. “Fetuses and infants are especially vulnerable to harm from perchlorate,” says NRDC’s Erik Olson.

@wendys has a secret. 🤔🍔 While its top competitor develops plans to move away from unnecessary antibiotics use in its beef supplies, Wendy’s—the third-largest burger chain in the United States—continues to buy beef from companies that routinely feed their animals medically important drugs, contributing to the growing global health threat posed by antibiotic-resistant superbugs. 🙅‍♀️ If @mcdonalds can do the right thing, so can Wendy’s.

Toxic PFAS chemicals are detectable in the blood of virtually every American. These “forever chemicals” are used to make cookware, clothing, firefighting foam and other materials. PFAS have been linked to cancer and other health problems and can be harmful even at extremely low doses. The U.S. government has left Americans vulnerable to exposure to these highly toxic chemicals in our water, food, air and soil. That’s why @NRDC_org Senior Director of Health and Food, Erik Olson, testified before the House of Representatives this week to urge officials to take action on widespread PFAS contamination and exposure.

Like hundreds of millions of other Americans, westerners want to see national leadership on climate, energy, and public-lands issues. With the absence of that leadership in D.C., western states are stepping up and taking matters into their own hands. In Colorado and neighboring states, a thoroughly western combination of self-reliance and responsibility is translating into action on climate.  Governors across the West are responding to 2018 voters who demanded bold vision and leadership on climate change. @GovofCO @JaredPolis campaigned on transitioning Colorado to a clean energy economy. Like his fellow recently installed western governors, @SteveSisolak (Nevada) and @GovMLG @MichelleLujanGrisham (New Mexico), he made his commitment to clean energy and opposition to the Trump administration’s energy and environmental policies a cornerstone of his campaign.

Greater Chaco Region Wins Reprieve From Fracking! A Federal Appeals Court just held that the Bureau of Land Management illegally approved oil and gas drilling in sacred landscape. This is a victory for public lands and communities in Greater Chaco.

The U.S. House Passed The First Climate Bill in a Decade! #HR9 would ensure that the United States follows through on its #Pari Agreement commitments in spite of backtracking by President Trump. The bill, also called  the #ClimateActionNow Act, would require that President Trump send a plan to Congress detailing how the country will meet its emissions reductions targets—a roughly 26 to 28 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from 2005 levels by 2025—as laid out by the #ParisAgreement. It would also block Trump from using federal funds to withdraw from the agreement, which he announced his intentions to do in June of 2017. Learn more at the link in our profile!
