EEO 623 is here! Would you let a uranium mine in the Grand Canyon watershed reopen based on impact studies done two dozen years ago? The Forest Service is.

“Now that the D.C. Circuit has affirmed the reality of the climate crisis and EPA’s duty and ability to address the problem, it’s time for the agency to aggressively combat the most serious social and environmental threat of our age. All parties need to put politics aside right away and work toward the solutions that are so readily available — because the moral case for action could not be stronger.”

“The harms of climate change are all around us, but our leaders have failed to act to reduce this threat. Today’s warning, coming from our country’s leading scientific advisors, sends an urgent message to our president and other policymakers: We need strong action, right now, to avert climate catastrophe.”
