"What the U.S. doesn't realize [is that China] is going from manufacturing hub to the clean-tech laboratory of the world."

1) Take Action: Strong Coal Ash Protections Needed! EPA
Tomorrow the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is holding the third in a series of public hearings on new coal ash protections. The pollution in toxic coal ash is known to cause cancer, childhood developmental problems and many other serious health troubles. The coal industry is fighting hard to preserve the failed status quo. EPA needs to hear from you as well.

With seven hearings across the country there’s a good chance you live near one. Find out and RSVP here. Not a hearing near you?

4)Tar Sands: New Report Shows Dangerous Pollution
Tar SandsA peer-reviewed study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences has found high levels of dangerous pollution, like arsenic, lead and mercury in waterways near and downstream from tar sands development sites. The report contradicts previous findings by oil industry research panels which claimed the pollution was "natural."
