The Trump administration has weakened an Obama-era rule aimed at stopping coal plant pollution that has contaminated streams, lakes and underground aquifers. The changes finalized Monday, Aug. 31, 2020, will allow utilities to use cheaper wastewater cleanup technologies and take longer to comply with pollution reduction guidelines adopted in 2015.

LETTER: Fight for climate change

U.S. President Joe Biden has taken much-needed steps to fight climate change.

It’s time for Canada to get on board instead of crying about a dying industry.

Alberta has seen this coming and instead of taking steps to introduce environmental jobs to put thousands back to work, they keep beating a dead horse.

We’re living with the effects of coal and oil and Mother Earth is saying enough.

Let’s hold Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to his word of a “Just Transition Act” which he committed to in Burnaby in 2019.
