Monkey-Wrenching America; a site I hadn't seen before

Lots of information on enviroweenie actions, including this in Alaska:
Now, these groups have come together to demand the Environmental Protection Agency expand its reach under Section 404(c) of the Clean Water Act to deny permits for Pebble before any permit has been applied for. This unprecedented power grab from the EPA would eliminate local and state authorities from having any say in the permitting process and gut the process established under the National Environmental Policy Act — passed by the environmentalists themselves. It would chill future investments not just in mining projects but also in the estimated $200 billion yearly investments in projects relying on 404(c) permits.
We're back to either tar and feathers, or lamppost-rope-politician/bureaucrat...

For the EPA I favor the lamp post.
