The U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) Ron Kirk is negotiating an expansive Free Trade Agreement among countries in the Pacific Rim.

California's 328,000-acre Giant Sequoia National Monument is home to half of all the giant sequoia trees left in the world, serves as vital wildlife habitat, and is a source of enjoyment and recreation for thousands of visitors each year.

These majestic trees are threatened by climate change and poor management policies -- but thankfully they have some powerful Sierra Club activists like Joe Fontaine speaking up for their protection.
