Take Action: Say "No Way" to Toxic Tax Plan

President Trump and Republicans in Congress have released their tax plan, which gives huge tax cuts to corporate polluters and the richest one percent of Americans. In order to give tax breaks to their special interest pals, GOP leaders plan to slash funding for environmental programs and government agencies like the EPA, NOAA, and the National Park Service, while opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas drilling.

Starbucks Falls Short on Green Commitments

Those Starbucks cups aren't actually recyclable, and you may want to look more carefully under the wrapper of those breakfast sandwiches. A recent report slammed Starbucks for providing single-use cups and gave the coffee chain a D+ for antibiotics present in their meat supplies.

Commission Caves, Company Pouts

Four days after a TransCanada pipeline spilled more than 200,000 gallons of oil in neighboring South Dakota, the Nebraska Public Service Commission approved a permit for TransCanada to build the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline through the Cornhusker State. (Bizarrely, Nebraska state law forbids the commission from taking into account "safety considerations, including the risk or impact of spills or leaks.") But the route approved by the commission has been called "unworkable" by TransCanada, which has been noncommittal about whether it will proceed with the new route.

"This much is certain, though," says Sierra Club executive director Michael Brune. http://click.emails.sierraclub.org/?qs=bf81bfb2d31a192750d1f812e853ac56e74cb1f011794dfed2812b10b508cbc9745907623f87edf79c3a20e5192a82bdcb373c52a20fcfcf "The fight to keep this pipeline from being built won't end with this decision."

Letter from Puerto Rico

Two months after Hurricane Maria slashed across Puerto Rico, the power remains off in most places, and the whir of gasoline and diesel generators has replaced the island's usual soundtrack of bomba, reggaeton, and salsa.

Sierra's Jason Mark just returned from the island, where he spoke with residents, business owners, doctors, and community advocates.

Put in Your Two Cents

As most Insider readers know, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has proposed to more than double the entrance fees at 17 of our most popular national parks during the five-month "peak" season. Zinke claims the fee hike is necessary to help pay for long-overdue infrastructure upgrades, but jacking up the price of admission from $30 to $70 per vehicle isn't the way to do it.

The public comment period has been extended to December 22.

Backpacking in the Big Apple

Say what? "Urban backpacking sounds like an oxymoron," says Katie Brantley, a Digital Storytelling Fellow with Sierra Club Outdoors. "For most of us, backpacking is an activity that takes place away from the city." But that axiom didn't stop the Sierra Club's Inspiring Connections Outdoors program from teaming up with partners at Patagonia and a local youth leadership academy to organize a multi day backpacking trip within the five boroughs.

Bonn Voyage

Sierra Club Beyond Coal campaign staffers Mary Anne Hitt and Bruce Nilles and volunteer leader Verena Owen traveled to Germany to participate in the COP23 Climate Change Conference. Hitt came away from the conference more optimistic than ever about the prospects for moving beyond coal, both in the U.S. and around the globe.

Pull the Financial Plug on Keystone XL

On November 20, TransCanada's preferred route for Keystone XL was rejected by the Nebraska Public Service Commission and another route was advanced -- one that TransCanada has called unworkable. That means the company still has multiple hurdles to overcome and the pipeline might never be built. Wells Fargo currently supports $1.5 billion in loans supporting construction of KXL—out of line with its public commitments to climate action and indigenous rights—that are up for renewal in December.
