Toxic flood waters in Houston show the shortsightedness of industrial regulation

The New York Times reported the release of hundreds of industrial pollutants in its recent storm, “More Than 40 Sites Released Hazardous Pollutants Because of Hurricane Harvey.” All coastal cities should heed the warning from Houston.

Oppose seismic testing off the shore of SC

I just signed this letter to oppose seismic testing in SC’s coastal waters due to the demonstrated harm it does to marine life. Marine mammals are protected by federal law under the Marine Mammal Protection Act and the Endangered Species Act. Oil and gas, if they are to continue, should technologically evolve to cause less harm to the environment, not delve into new risks. Please take this action through the Coastal Conservation League: http://action.coastalconservationleague.org/page/speakout/no-to-offshore-seismic-testing

“Awakening V: King Tide” is underway

The 100-ft banner featuring “Charleston Airborne Flooded” was installed last week on Joseph Floyd Manor depicting the city of Charleston witha 4.5-ft sea level rise. The large scale art promotes the event series “Awakening V: King Tide” with Enough Pie. 7 art installations and 7 events are part of the program through May.
