No Dakota Access Pipeline Update
On February 8th, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers issued an easement allowing the installation of the Dakota Access Pipeline under Lake Oahe in North Dakota. In response, the Standing Rock and Cheyenne River Sioux filed new motions to halt the pipeline’s construction and operation. After an initial hearing on those motions, the federal judge on the case allowed construction to proceed but will be considering the Tribes’ claims before oil will pass through the pipeline under Lake Oahe.

Gas Pump Information Labels Comes to TED Talks!
Robert Shirkey, Executive Director at OurHorizon.org in Toronto Canada just recently did a TED talk on Canada's gas pump campaign. It is a very informative and well spoken speech about the merits of implementing a consumer-oriented label at the point of purchase:
