Lawsuits, rally in Albany question company's ability to extend land leases for fracking

Anti-fracking rally, Albany, NY May 2,2011Nearly 250 landowners in the Southern Tier are suing to stop a large gas company from indefinitely extending leases that landowners want to end.
While no Central New York landowners are involved in the suits, hundreds of local people received the same lease-extension notices from Chesapeake as those being challenged in the Southern Tier suits.

About 40 local residents plan to board a bus early this morning to attend a large rally in Albany to stop the controversial drilling technique known as fracking.  The rally comes just two weeks after a hydrofracking well blew out in Bradford, Pa., sending thousands of gallons of tainted water into a nearby creek. A spokesman for the Independent Oil and Gas Association of New York said drilling companies work hard to prevent accidents, but that some are inevitable.

Which U.S. cities have dirtiest and cleanest air?

Which cities have the cleanest air?How clean is your air? Most U.S. cities with the dirtiest air are getting cleaner but half of Americans still live in in areas where it's often difficult to breathe, the American Lung Association reports today.

Los Angeles remains the smoggiest metro area, although it's improved significantly in the last decade, and Bakersfield, Calif., has the worst particle pollution such as soot and ash, both on a daily and annual level, according to the ALA's 12th annual "State of the Air" report.

Climategate: What Really Happened?

Climate gate - what really happenedHow climate science became the target of "the best-funded, best-organized smear campaign by the wealthiest industry that the Earth has ever known."

It's difficult to imagine how a guy who spends most of his time looking at endless columns of temperature records became a "fucking terrorist," "killer," or "one-world-government socialist." It's even harder when you meet Michael Mann, a balding 45-year-old climate scientist who speaks haltingly and has a habit of nervously clearing his throat. And when you realize that the reason for all the hostility is a 12-year-old chart, it seems more than a little surreal.

Earth Day alert: Ozone hole has dried Australia

Clouds in the polar stratosphere are where ozone is broken downThe Antarctic ozone hole is about one-third to blame for Australia's recent series of droughts, scientists say. Writing in the journal Science, they conclude that the hole has shifted wind and rainfall patterns right across the Southern Hemisphere, even the tropics.

Their climate models suggest the effect has been notably strong over Australia. Many parts of the country have seen drought in recent years, with cities forced to invest in technologies such as desalination, and farms closing.

Pebble Mine: an environmental tragedy waiting to happen

Pebble Mine: environmental tragedyNear my home in Utah, Rio Tinto's massive Bingham Canyon Mine is one of the biggest man-made excavations on Earth and has rendered a large area of local groundwater too polluted for human consumption.

Now, the Rio Tinto and Anglo American companies want to put a mine even bigger than Bingham at the headwaters of our planet's greatest wild salmon river systems in Bristol Bay, Alaska. It's an environmental tragedy waiting to happen.

Their Pebble Mine would be gouged out of an American paradise -- filled with salmon, bears, moose, caribou, wolves and whales -- that has sustained Native communities for thousands of years.

Meltdown - Trickling Down On The Global Population

"The reactors at Fukushima are the largest in the world, and six of them are in total meltdown. They have been melting down since thirty-minutes after the Tsunami' because the cooling systems went off when the earthquake happened and 90 minutes after the cooling stopped-the reactors went into meltdown. This is all a cover-up, this is a false-flag, this is a poisoning of the oceans the atmosphere and the biosphere. No one can escape."
