Global Divestment Week – Divest & MNvest!

Minnesotans have long appreciated our state’s lakes, rivers, forests and farmlands, yet climate change threatens our state’s treasures through rising temperatures, extreme weather events, and degraded air and water quality. These climate impacts also threaten our economy, agriculture, and public health. Yet individual Minnesotans can only do so much. Minnesota businesses and banks are profiting from investments that contribute to climate change and hurt our communities. For example, U.S. Bank invests in the fossil fuel […]

Federal Judge Ruling on Alberta Clipper Scheme

The ruling did not endorse the scheme, nor discuss its legality, but stated the court did not have the authority over decisions regarding cross border permitting. […]
