Obama Administration Does Nothing on Mountaintop Removal in West Virginia

"Mountaintop removal coal mining blows off the tops of mountains to extract the coal that fuels our nation's power plants. It has already leveled 500 mountains and buried over 1,200 miles of streams2 -- but it gets worse. It raises my community's risk of birth defects, cancer, and heart disease.

Right now, dozens of permits are pending for new mines and the Obama Administration could approve them any day. If they get approved, it will mean more people get sick and more mountains get destroyed. I don't know about you, but I don't want any more families to suffer the effects of Big Coal's pollution."

Obama Administration Department of the Interior allows water to be pumped from Mojave

"Deserts are known for beautiful vistas, curious creatures and resilient plant life. What they're not known for is water. That's why it seems so crazy to me that the Interior Department is allowing a private developer to pump water out of Mojave Desert aquifers to feed Los Angeles and Orange Counties

Water is a huge issue in California. No doubt, people need a clean source of drinking water in cities. But pumping water from under the Mojave Desert -- especially without proper federal review of the plans -- is not the smart answer "

Obama Administration and EPA fail to act to protect Sea Life and Oceans.

"The world's oceans and their rich array of life are in trouble. Every day 22 million tons of carbon dioxide are spewed from cars, power plants and other human sources are absorbed by oceans, making seawater more and more acidic. The lower pH is robbing creatures like sea stars, crabs and corals of the compounds they need to develop their hard shells -- and thus threatening their very survival. This has a ripple effect up the food chain, spelling disaster for larger animals, from salmon to sea otters to whales and people.

On Wednesday the Center for Biological Diversity took the unprecedented step of calling on the White House and the Environmental Protection Agency to develop a sweeping national plan to address ocean acidification. It's part of our new Endangered Oceans campaign to save sea life from this pending disaster.

Join us in asking the EPA to stop ocean acidification from forever ruining our oceans and killing off the life they sustain."
