[Main topics of the Week] Personally I need a break from the constant flow of bad environment and conservation news coming from the US. So I am going to focus primarily on a single event that happened this week: the birthday of an inspiring leader, a great woman, scientist and conservation: Jane Goodall.
And otherwise make sure you call your senators to get them to hear what you think about the dismantling of Alaska's Izembek National Refuge pushed by the Alaskan Environment thug that Rep. Don Young is. Although he is not alone: the Republicans are acting altogether at dismantling environmental protections, and eradicating conservation areas. [Common Dreams]
