The Malheur takeover ain’t over ’til it’s over: Yesterday Cliven Bundy, father of Malheur takeover leader Ammon Bundy, published a certified letter he sent to Harney County Sheriff David M. Ward, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, and U.S. President Barack Obama. In it, he pronounced that “we the people of Harney County” intend to “retain possession” of the federal preserve. The letter affirms his group’s intention of retaining possession of the federal natural reserve and is filled with ALEC talking-points on states rights.
The real agenda behind the Malheur takeover in Harney County, Oregon, becomes clear: The area is home to a “model” land management agreement that could undermine the movement to privatize federal land.
Three hot trends converge for a gigantic new wind turbine project: biomimicry, public-private partnerships and inter-corporate collaboration.

A pattern of willful ignorance links the California methane leak, swarms of earthquakes in Oklahoma and water contamination in Michigan.
The Volkswagen emissions scandal keeps growing, as the company fails to reach a recall agreement with the US EPA and gets slapped with a lawsuit.
ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson promotes petroleum as the only solution to “energy poverty” in developing nations, but affordable solar power is on the verge of completely undercutting his argument, at least when it comes to household lighting. In Africa, for example, the company Off Grid Electric is offering a soup-to-nuts solar lighting system aimed squarely at replacing kerosene.
While global political leaders lurch to a conclusion at the COP21 Paris climate talks, 114 global companies take a stronger position on carbon emissions.
Texas makes a great case for a strong outcome at the COP21 Paris climate talks, despite the antipathy of U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) to climate action.
