The Fable of the Wolf
 
02:16
Wolves once roamed the United States before decades of unregulated slaughter wiped them out. It wasn’t until they were missing that people began to recognize the crucial role wolves play in maintaining the health of the natural world. The gray wolf was one of the first to be protected by the Endangered Species Act. Its re-introduction in the northern Rockies restored a balance in the ecosystem. Now those protections are under attack in Congress. Join The Pack to take action and learn more about the plight of wolves. Visit: earthjustice.org/howl Take Action: https://secure.earthjustice.org/site/SPageNavigator/P2A_WolfDelisting_Governor "The Fable of the Wolf" was illustrated by the award-winning, Athens-based artist Daniel Egnéus.

Growing Change

Take action for healthy food and healthy workers - https://secure.earthjustice.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=1838&s_subsrc=video Jim Cochran arrived at work before dawn. He walked out into the strawberry fields. As the sun rose and light hit the field, he began to smell chemicals. His eyes watered. His head spun. He started to shake. He had just walked into a field that had been sprayed with pesticides. An acre of conventional strawberries is covered with 300 pounds of pesticides, 1,100 percent more than the average food crop. As he recovered from the effects of the spray he knew that he had to help the industry change. Jim Cochran helped invent the organic strawberry industry. After pioneering and profiting from a healthier crop, he turned his attention to the health of his workers. He became the first organic farmer in American to unionize his workforce when he signed a contract with the United Farm Workers of America. His workers make three times the national average for strawberry work, have health care, vacation pay and an employee owned stock plan. Jim Cochran uses his business to fight for healthy food and healthy workers. Earthjustice fights in court for these same principles. Our staff and court cases recently removed pesticides from the shelf and helped create stronger worker protections for farm workers.

Saved by Bears
 
03:44
Doug Peacock returned from the Vietnam War and couldn't shake the experience. He went to the wilderness for comfort and being in the wild among the great bear helped end his flashbacks. The bears brought Doug into the present, and from then on, he has spent his life documenting and advocating for them. "Those bears saved my life," Doug said. "Now it's payback time." When the Trump administration removed the grizzly bear from the endangered species list, Peacock knew that the courts could be a place to fight for the great bears and that Earthjustice could help. He is a declarant in their case to restore Endangered Species Act protections for grizzlies. The week, Earthjustice heads to court to fight for the return of Endangered Species Act protections and to stop the Sept. 1 trophy hunt of Yellowstone’s grizzly bears.

180 Seconds of Coal Ash Problems
 
03:01
Take Action Now - http://earthjustice.org/coalashaction Every year power plants generate 140 million tons of coal ash, enough to fill a train stretching from the North Pole to the South Pole. It contains chemicals like arsenic, mercury and lead. It can cause cancer and developmental problems. It poisons fish and wildlife in rivers and lakes. In some places the ash is dumped into uncovered pits. In others it sits behind leaky dams. It poisons the air. It destroys the water. And the corporate polluters responsible, they claim that cleaning up this toxic mess would hurt their profits But in 2008, when that dam broke, something changed. Nearly half a million people asked the EPA for stronger protections. Thousands of citizens attended public meetings. Local and national environmental and public health groups got involved. We brought the coal industry face to face with the people they were hurting. Those people are America, and America spoke with one voice. "Clean Up Coal Ash!" But that was then and this is now. Four years later there are still no federal protections. Right now some senators want to pass a bill that will prevent the EPA from ever regulating coal ash. They want to ignore the disaster in Tennessee and avoid deadlines to clean up this toxic waste all across America. But we can't let polluter profits triumph over public health. We have to do something to clean up this mess. So call your senators. Send this email. And share this video with your friends right now. Together we can clean up this toxic mess. But we have to take action now.

This is How Asthma Feels
 
02:07
Take Action for Clean Air - http://asthmafeelslike.org/ People who suffer from asthma often say an attack feels like breathing through a pool of water or like a pillow is covering their face. In the United States, asthma is a bona fide public health epidemic: 17 million adults and 7 million children suffer from the disease. In thousands of severe cases, people die. Environmental triggers, like ozone pollution, known as smog, can exacerbate asthma. In this video, asthma patients and experts describe what the disease feels like and what contributes to it. The Clean Air Act gives us all the legal right to breathe clean, healthy air. There is overwhelming evidence that the current health standard for ozone pollution endangers lives and leaves people with asthma and other respiratory disease vulnerable.

AN ILL WIND - The Secret Threat of Coal Ash
 
07:41
See the whole project at http://www.earthjustice.org/illwind The Moapa River Indian Reservation, tribal home of the Moapa Band of Paiutes, sits about 30 miles north of Las Vegas and about 300 yards from the coal ash ponds and landfills of the Reid Gardner Power Station. Coal ash is the toxic ash and sludge left at the end of the coal burning process. It's laced with arsenic, mercury, lead and other heavy metals. It's the second largest waste stream in America and it's currently unregulated. If the conditions are just wrong, coal ash picks up from Reid Gardner and moves across the desert like a toxic sandstorm sending the local residents running for their homes. The reservation has lung, heart and thyroid disease rates that are abnormally high and the power plant is currently seeking to expand its coal ash storage capability.

The Fight to Ban Chlorpyrifos: Inside the Case
 
02:52
Take action: https://ejus.tc/FightChlorpyrifos Learn more: https://earthjustice.org/chlorpyrifos On the eve of a hearing in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, Earthjustice attorney Patti Goldman breaks down Earthjustice's case seeking a ban on chlorpyrifos nationwide. The pesticide chlorpyrifos is known to damage children's brains. Exposure to chlorpyrifos at low doses is linked to reductions in IQ, memory loss, and other developmental disabilities, according to mounting studies. At higher doses, it can cause paralysis and even death. It is commonly used on dozens of U.S. crops, including apples, broccoli, and citrus. Goldman is the lead attorney on Earthjustice's lawsuit challenging the EPA's delayed implementation of a ban of chlorpyrifos.

The Tribe did engage in discussions, more than TWO YEARS AGO. In Sept. 2014, Energy Transfer Partners came to speak to the tribe. Tribal members told them in no uncertain terms not to build the pipeline near their reservation. At the end of the meeting. tribal elder Phyllis Young delivered a speech about the injustice of the past and present and the fight for justice that will be waged against the pipeline in the future.

Too Wild To Drill: Journey to the Arctic Refuge in Virtual Reality
 
07:55
The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a cherished landscape owned by all Americans. Yet after decades of protection, the Trump administration is barreling forward with plans to open this irreplaceable wilderness to the fossil fuel industry for oil and gas drilling. These plans have been met with widespread opposition, including from indigenous Gwich’in people who rely on the caribou that migrate to the Refuge and consider the area targeted for drilling to be sacred. Too Wild to Drill, filmed with 360-degree cameras, brings you to the threatened coastal plain of the Arctic Refuge, an Arctic Gwich’in village, and the epicenter of oil and gas drilling in America’s Arctic.

Visions of the Arctic
 
08:02
Of all the places Earthjustice works to protect, few are as iconic and misunderstood as the Arctic. At best, it conjures images of a distant, icy land sparsely inhabited by polar bears and walruses—beautiful, but removed from our everyday lives. At worst, it's a frozen wasteland devoid of life but rich in oil, a place to exploit at will. But nothing could be further from the truth. With these images, I hoped to make the general public a lot more aware of what beauty is up there and also what's at stake. Earthjustice teamed up with photographer Florian Schulz who has been doing incredible work to document the Arctic. With his images he hopes to make the general public more aware of what beauty is up there and also what's at stake. The Arctic is a thriving, diverse landscape filled with life. Here, caribou in the hundreds of thousands still embark on epic migrations across mighty rivers and coastal plains. And here, wetlands, lakes and oceans teem with life, supporting whales, polar bears, seals and waterfowl.

If You Can Hear My Voice: The Fight to Ban Chlorpyrifos

Take Action: https://bit.ly/2VNJTa2 Learn More: https://bit.ly/2T3JMoY Claudia Angulo's son was born with developmental delays after she was exposed to chlorpyrifos during her pregnancy. She's fighting for a ban on the pesticide. The pesticide chlorpyrifos is known to damage children's brains. Exposure at low doses is linked to reductions in IQ, memory loss, and other developmental disabilities, according to mounting studies. At higher doses, it can cause paralysis and even death. It is commonly used on dozens of U.S. crops, including apples, broccoli, and citrus. For years, Earthjustice and our partners have fought to convince the EPA to ban chlorpyrifos. In 2016, it agreed to do so. Then President Donald Trump appointed a new EPA administrator who refused to implement the ban, falsely claiming the science around the pesticide was unresolved. Earthjustice represented a dozen health, labor, and civil rights groups in a lawsuit to hold the EPA accountable. Last year, the Ninth Circuit ordered the agency to heed its own scientists and implement a ban. But the EPA continues to drag its feet, so we continue to fight. In this video, Claudia Angulo describes how chlorpyrifos has harmed her family. Her son, Isaac, suffered brain damage after she was exposed to the pesticide during pregnancy. Since Isaac’s diagnosis with ADHD, she has worked to raise awareness about the chemical's health effects in children. "If we want things to change, we have to work together," Angulo says.
