It's like a cigarette smoker with lung problems: Doctors can treat the disease, but the first thing that has to be done is to get the patient to stop smoking, or in this case get off coal in the next five years, commission officials said in interviews.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Environmental groups on Monday renewed their call to end hydraulic fracturing in northwestern New Mexico as part of an ongoing battle over oil and natural gas development and the protection of cultural and archaeological sites. According to the groups, the BLM's Farmington office has approved 265 permits since 2013 and more than 90 wells have already been drilled, fracked and flared. The BLM in January did postpone an o...

Interior Department proposing a Rocky Mountain fracking free-for-all this month, threatening our climate and our public lands, including Colorado's Pawnee National Grassland. WildEarth Guardians responds with a call for a moratorium on new oil and gas leasing! We can't frack our way to a safe climate!

Our Climate and Energy Program Director also swung through Craig this past weekend, checking out the Colowyo mine, Tri-State's Craig coal-fired power plant, and spending some quality time playing on the Yampa River (which still has quite the flow) and Duffy Mountain.
Look, there's no doubt that coal supports Craig, but it comes at a tremendous cost, especially when coal mining requires illegal government approvals. This serves nobody's interests. As we've said here before, it's time for an honest conversation about the future of coal. That also means the U.S. Interior Department needs to start being honest with all Americans about the future of coal. Surely folks will disagree and we welcome posts that take issue with our assessment, but we're not going to back down in our efforts to safeguard the climate and to ensure the Interior Department helps communities confront the reality that our nation is moving away from coal.

As companies like Peabody plunge toward bankruptcy (just today, the company was again rejected by Standard and Poor's as an indicator of coal industry health, http://goo.gl/bypC4p), it's important to take note of how they've impacted the West and to ensure we get a fair return to clean up the messes they leave behind, especially as their ability to pay up is in question, http://www.reuters.com/…/usa-coal-bonding-idUSL1N0YC17N2015….

At the behest of Arch Coal, one of the largest coal mining companies, the Forest Service wants to lift protections on 20,000 acres of National Forest lands in western Colorado. This Arch Coal Loophole would open the door for 350 million tons of new coal mining in Colorado’s West Elk Mountains. Nearly 700 million tons of carbon would be unleashed once this coal is burned. Join us in calling on the Forest Service to abandon this ill-conceived proposal.

A Victory for the Climate and Clean Air! A federal court on Friday ruled that the Interior Department's approval to expand two coal mines in Northwestern Colorado were illegally approved, upholding a lawsuit filed by WildEarth Guardians challenging the government’s failure to include the public and safeguard the environment.
