New Picture Addition, Action Alert & Extinction Bill Update

New Picture Added to Shower Bath Hot Springs in Idaho

I was revisiting past trips and came across this picture of Shower Bath Hot Springs in Idaho. I liked this pic in particular because you can actually see the pool located at the base of the geothermal outflow.

Important Action Alert - Now is your chance to make a difference!

The House of Representatives is moving two new energy bills that would exploit our national tragedy in order to fulfill the fondest dreams of the oil giants: to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge . . . to plunder America's coastal waters . . . and to evade pollution controls on their smog-spewing refineries.

Tell your Representative to vote NO on these shameless giveaways to the oil lobby!


Extinction Bill Update from Katelyn of SaveOurEnvironment.org

Dear Josh & Hot Springs Enthusiasts,

Last week we told you that some members of Congress were attempting to cut the heart out of the Endangered Species Act by decreasing protections for our endangered species and severely weakening the law's vital safeguards. Thank you again for speaking out on behalf our endangered species. Unfortunately, despite all of our best efforts, on September 29, the Pombo Wildlife Extinction bill was passed by a vote of 229 to 193 in the House of Representatives.

This vote is a setback, but the fight to protect our endangered species is far from over. Next, this bill will move to the Senate where we expect yet another tough fight and close vote. We hope that we can count on your support as we continue this battle to protect bald eagles, grizzly bears, Florida manatees and other endangered animals and plants.

The Endangered Species Act is a safety net for our nation'’s most vulnerable species on the brink of extinction. This landmark legislation has successfully protected hundreds of vulnerable species. Representative Pombo'’s bill would cut large holes in this safety net and significantly weaken protections for our nation'’s fish, plants, wildlife, and the places they call home.

The cynically named "“Threatened and Endangered Species Recovery Act" is an absolute nightmare for threatened and endangered species. One provision would end the protection of critical habitat necessary for the survival and recovery of animals and plants. Another provision states that taxpayers must pay developers to comply with the
Endangered Species Act, setting up a dangerous precedent of paying people not to break the law.

We a’re not about to stop fighting now. We have strong allies in the Senate, and we're working with them to ensure that this extinction bill does not become law. SaveOurEnvironment.org will continue to keep you informed about what you can do to protect our endangered species.

Thank you for all that you do to protect our endangered species.
