Ask Army Corps of Engineers to Require a Clean Water Act Permit for Proposed Rail Bridge Last Updated on 2017-06-18 03:12:33 BNSF AT IT AGAIN - Putting Our Water At Risk A new railroad bridge proposed to cross Idaho’s largest lake could open the rails to dramatic increases of coal and oil trains, the consequences of which would reverberate up and down the rail line. Sound familiar? This is similar to Union Pacific’s recent attempt to build a second rail line through Mosier, Oregon to increase oil and coal trains through the Columbia River Gorge.

Students for the Salish Sea Trip to Protect Salmon From Natural Gas, Lelu Island BC, Summer 2017 Last Updated on 2017-06-18 02:31:22 The third largest salmon habitat in the world is at risk from a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) export facility on Lelu Island in Northern B.C.  Scientists say that if built, this export facility would obliterate vital salmon habitat in the Flora Banks and Skeena river, as well as increase tanker traffic in one of the world’s most pristine salmon-bearing estuaries. With your help, a coordinated group of members from Students for the Salish Sea and the community in Bellingham, WA will travel to Northern B.C. this summer and join in the indigenous-led defense of Lelu Island. Help send these trained and welcomed allies to protect essential salmon habitat from extractive industry. Please consider making a generous gift to support our cause    More »
