The West's Changed Climate

Report
Human activities are already changing the climate of the American West. This report by the Rocky Mountain Climate Organization (RMCO) and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) shows how the West is being affected more by a changed climate than any other part of the United States outside of Alaska. Embracing available solutions at all levels of government is critical to minimizing further disruption of this region’s climate and economy.
The New Energy Economy
Putting America on the Path to Solving Global Warming

Issue Paper
How America and the world respond to global warming and our growing demand for energy -- and whether we respond in time -- will determine what kind of planet we have for generations to come. Fortunately, many of the technologies and policy tools we need to make the shift to cleaner energy solutions already exist, and we can deploy them without harming the economy. NRDC outlines six energy-sector opportunities that can help America reduce global warming pollution. The next step is decisive action by the U.S. government to facilitate these investments and reduce our global warming pollution the necessary 80 percent, or 10.6 billion tons, by 2050.

Playing Chicken with Antibiotics
Previously Undisclosed FDA Documents Show Antibiotic Feed Additives Don't Meet the Agency's Own Safety Standards

Issue Brief
Between 2001 and 2010, the FDA quietly reviewed the safety of 30 penicillin and tetracycline antibiotic feed additives approved for "nontherapeutic use". FDA's scientific reviewers' findings show that none of these products would likely be approvable as new additives for nontherapeutic livestock use if submitted today, under current FDA guidelines.
Wild Things
Overview
Progressive ranchers are rejecting the old practice of slaughtering large carnivores to protect livestock. Instead, they are using new technology and old methods of animal husbandry to coexist with carnivores.
Reform Wildlife Services' Predator Control
Why does the government continue to kill public wildlife for private interests?

Overview
Wildlife Services spends over $100 million annually to kill more than one million animals.   Some of its work, such as preventing bird strikes at airports and controlling the spread of rabies, benefits the public interest, but its current predator control program damages the environment and wastes taxpayer dollars.
Fuzzy Math
Wildlife Services Should Improve Its Economic Analysis of Predator Control

Issue Paper
About 100,000 coyotes, bobcats, foxes, wolves, bears, and mountain lions are killed each year by Wildlife Services, a U.S. Department of Agriculture federal agency. Much of this lethal predator control program is partly justified by economic analyses that are often incomplete, and sometimes incorrect.
