Hi Friends of the Colorado River! Here's this week's updates for our work protecting and…
Hello Amazing Friends of the Colorado River!
We need RIVER WARRIORS to STOP TRUMP and SAVE THE COLORADO RIVER!
2. Federal government regulations and environmental laws protect the river, the environment, people’s health, and the economy in the Southwest U.S.
3. The California drought is real.
4. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) needs to be strengthened, not gutted.
5. The federal process for permitting new dams and diversions needs to be strengthened, not streamlined.
However, in his campaign for presidency, Donald Trump said the exact opposite. He said climate change is a hoax, he wants to cut regulations, he said the California drought was not real, he wants to gut the EPA, and he wants to “streamline” federal permitting processes that impact the environment. Moreover, as the President of the United States and with an anti-environmental majority in the U.S. Senate and House, he can try hard to do those exact things.
One of the most effective tools to STOP TRUMP and his agenda in Congress is to fight them in the courts. The GOOD NEWS is that Save The Colorado is an aggressive organization and we are already geared up to do exactly that! We have a team of attorneys and scientists, and we are poised to wage court battles against new proposed dams and diversions in Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, and across the Colorado River basin.
Your donation to Save The Colorado will be timely, strategic, and make a real difference in our ability to fight these court battles and protect the Colorado River from more dams and diversions.
EVEN MORE GOOD NEWS! If you donate $35 or more before the end of 2016, we will send you a free signed copy of my brand new book, RIVER WARRIOR: FIGHTING TO PROTECT THE WORLD’S RIVERS!
Hot off the presses, River Warrior is a collection of my writings and activism over the last few years and contains 30 articles and 94 color photographs that have been published in the Denver Post, USA Today, Waterkeeper Magazine, Canoe and Kayak, EcoWatch, and scores of regional newspapers across the Colorado River basin.
River Warrior’s 162 pages are filled with my eco-adventure travels and impassioned voice about saving rivers in Peru, Thailand, Belize, Mexico, Columbia, and Costa Rica, as well as the COLORADO RIVER and Cache la Poudre River in the U.S.
My river-saving activism has generated over a thousand news stories and has been profiled in the New York Times, NPR, Rachel Maddow, BBC, and Los Angeles Times. Dozens of media outlets across the Colorado River basin have covered Save The Colorado’s viewpoint, and our voice for the Colorado River is an integral piece of the public dialogue.
By donating $35 or more before the end of 2016, you will help us FIGHT TRUMP IN COURT which is one of the most effective forms of advocacy an environmental group can do when the wheels of power have changed against the environment.
You will also get a FREE SIGNED COPY of my brand new book, RIVER WARRIOR.
To STOP TRUMP and SAVE THE COLORADO RIVER, we all need to become RIVER WARRIORS. Click here to donate to Save The Colorado and please join us today!
