March 9, 2021: Monthly News Roundup
It’s time for our monthly roundup of environmental news and stories.
This week, we start with an update to a story we brought you last month on coal exploration and mining in the Rocky Mountains. Next, you’ll hear about a pipeline spill in Richmond, California and devastating blackouts to power grids across the United States. We’ll head to Alberta’s northern boreal forest and hear about the proposed expansion of Kitaskino Nuwenëné Wildland Provincial Park, and then end in Nunavut with the Nuluujaaq Land Guardians blockade of Baffinland’s Mary River mine.
Many of the stories in this episode have their roots in the efforts of Indigenous land and water protectors across Turtle Island. And at Terra Informa, these are the stories that we are committed to amplifying and sharing with you. Groups like Raven Trust and Niitsítapi Water Protectors have been invaluable resources for us to learn from, and we hope you find these to be good starting points to learn more about the ongoing work of these organizers.
