Cape Wind Site Not So Sacred After All?

Dirty energy interests (with help from wealthy land owners, including the Kennedys) have been leading a campaign for nearly a decade to block Cape Wind, the country’s first offshore wind farm in the Nantucket Sound. They have been successful in delaying the project, but their real hope for conquering the wind farm once and for all didn’t come until last year, when two local Native American tribes requested that the sound be declared off-limits for development because it would interfere with their spiritual practice. But one tribe member says that argument is a complete fabrication.

Most Credible Climate Skeptic Not So Credible After All

Patrick Michaels has more credibility than your average climate skeptic, and is often featured prominently in the press to offer an alternative view on global warming. But what Michaels doesn’t mention in his frequent media appearances is his history of receiving money from big polluters.

EPA Block Bad for Auto Industry, Says DOT

Efforts underway to block the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse-gas emissions would “profoundly” harm the already-ailing auto industry, warned the Department of Transportation in a letter.

McCain Goes Off the Nuclear Deep End

Obama’s $54.5 billion plan to restart the nuclear industry apparently isn’t good enough for John McCain.

HERE ARE THE FACTS:

Our fall fundraising drive is off to a rough start, and we very much need to raise $250,000 in the next couple of weeks. If you value the journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us do it with a donation today.

As we wrote over the summer, traffic has been down at Mother Jones and a lot of sites with many people thinking news is less important now that Donald Trump is no longer president. But if you're reading this, you're not one of those people, and we're hoping we can rally support from folks like you who really get why our reporting matters right now. And that's how it's always worked: For 45 years now, a relatively small group of readers (compared to everyone we reach) who pitch in from time to time has allowed Mother Jones to do the type of journalism the moment demands and keep it free for everyone else.

Please pitch in with a donation during our fall fundraising drive if you can. We can't afford to come up short, and there's still a long way to go by November 5.
