via globalnews.ca From the article: Organizer Don Montgrand says the blockade of the gravel road began Saturday and will block vehicles from companies that are drilling for minerals, oil or uranium. He says the peaceful blockade is to protect their fur block, one of 80 in the north. Continue reading

via blogs.law.columbia.edu From the article: As SCCCL has previously reported, the use of NEPA to encourage consideration of how the environment might affect a project has gained momentum in recent years. This type of “reverse environmental impact” analysis can promote adaptation to climate change in vulnerable areas like Plaquemines Parish. FERC’s letter to LLNGE is an important first step towards protecting the infrastructure, economy, and communities on Louisiana’s coastline. - See more at: http://blogs.law.columbia.edu/climatechange/2014/11/26/ferc-directs-lng-facility-applicant-to-disclose-climate-change-impacts-as-urged-by-sabin-center/#sthash.vSZkG0tL.BmPtwvVC.dpuf Continue reading

Will the Ferguson decision create a push for change across America? | MSNBC From the video blurb: Color of Change’s Rashad Robinson and Keith Beauchamp of “The Injustice Files” join NewsNation to share their reaction to the grand jury decision in Ferguson. Robinson says the “pain people are suffering in Ferguson and around the country” continues and that no justice was served. Robinson says a conversation on police accountability and criminal just must occur. Beauchamp says the events that took place in Ferguson are a “trans-generational issue that doesn’t seem to stop.” Continue reading

via www.theguardian.com From the article: The world’s fossil fuels will “obviously” have to stay in the ground in order to solve global warming, Barack Obama’s climate change envoy said on Monday. In the clearest sign to date the administration sees no long-range future for fossil fuel, the state department climate change envoy, Todd Stern, said the world would have no choice but to forgo developing reserves of oil, coal and gas.

The words “science education” once evoked images of a professor in a white coat lecturing at a blackboard filled with equations or students in a lab conducting “experiments” with beakers and Bunsen burners. Such limited views of science education no longer hold today, when science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) learning takes place in a wide variety of social dynamics and settings. Learning experiences might take the form of an observant walk on a family outing to a park, activities that impart lessons about biology at a summer camp or museum, or an evening at home watching Cosmos or other...

via www.alternet.org From the article: The short life of Adam Lanza, the killer responsible for the 2012 mass shooting at Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary School, was a perfect storm of missed cues, bungled mental healthcare, overwhelmed and absentee parenting, easy access to guns, violent video games and online chats where murder was discussed like baseball scores.

via www.dailykos.com From the article: Following his long public hand washing and cheerful mocking of witnesses, St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch stood by for a few minutes of questioning. It was a frustratingly brief exchange, during which McCulloch was three times asked the one question that McCulloch had already said he could not answer: what was the actual vote count on the charges before the grand jury. Thank you, "professional reporters" for wasting this unique opportunity to clear up a few matters. But there are a few things they could have asked McCulloch. Things that needed to be said...

We are profoundly disappointed that the killer of our child will not face the consequence of his actions. While we understand that many others share our pain, we ask that you channel your frustration in ways that will make a positive change. We need to work together to fix the system that allowed this to happen. Join with us in our campaign to ensure that every police officer working the streets in this country wears a body camera. We respectfully ask that you please keep your protests peaceful. Answering violence with violence is not the appropriate reaction. Let's not just... Continue reading

via thinkprogress.org From the article: Specifically, McGraugh and Christmas question McCulloch’s unusual decision to present “all evidence” to the grand jury. Typically, prosecutors present to the grand jury only the evidence necessary to establish probable cause. (A grand jury does not determine guilt or innocence but only if a reasonable jury could find the defendant guilty.) McGraugh and Christmas are especially critical of McCulloch’s decision to allow Wilson to testify for hours in front of the grand jury. Continue reading

via indiancountrytodaymedianetwork.com From the article: It’s no secret that parts of North Dakota are plagued with spills of both briny wastewater and fracked oil from the notorious Bakken shale formation. But the number and scope, uncovered by The New York Times and reported this week in a two-part investigation, is staggering.

via interactioninstitute.org From the article: We have just heard that the Grand Jury did not indict Darren Wilson for killing Michael Brown. The brilliant and courageous young people of Ferguson know that justice has not been served. The relentless profiling, criminalization, harassment and killing of young people of color is a an old an ongoing crisis in this country. It must stop. Continue reading

via interactioninstitute.org From the article: If calm is a proxy for no further damage to communities that have historically been harmed by underinvestment and racism it might be a worthy goal. And, calm raises several questions when we want to think about this moment historically and systemically: How could any of us stay calm? We are in the face of egregious wrongs. There is data that demonstrates inequitable stops and arrests. Yet there is lack of attention to the underlying issues that create these conditions, allowing police violence to continue. Why are local and state forces being armed in advance... Continue reading

Although this is a false-color image, the color map has been chosen to mimic what the human eye would expect to see. Bright red pixels depict areas of very high temperatures and show active lava. White areas are clouds. Continue reading
