Take Action: Protect Our Watersheds From Mountaintop-Removal Coal Mining
Next week, the House of Representatives will decide on whether the coal industry can dump its toxic mining waste into our streams and waterways. Big polluters lost this battle in court, but now they are using this bill as an end run to bring a destructive Bush-era policy back to life. With hundreds of miles of waterways at risk, we must protect communities living downstream from dangerous coal mining pollution.
Tell your representative to vote no on HR 2824!
Grassroots Activism: Coal Export Terminal Rejected in Oakland
A huge congrats to the Sierra Club activists around Oakland, California. Over the past six months, local and national Sierra Club volunteers and staff have formed a coalition of groups to work against a proposed coal export terminal.
And when the coal export proposal came up for a vote last week, the coalition turned out more than 40 community activists on short notice, all of whom expressed their opposition.
And the city of Oakland rejected the terminal!
