The Center for a Livable Future has joined with several other environmental groups concerned that potential amendments to an Interior Appropriations Bill may hinder the Environmental Protection Agency’s reporting of greenhouse gas (CHG) emissions from concentrated animal feeding operations. Several CLF staffers signed a letter to Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), adapted from a joint letter sent to multiple members of the Appropriations Committee. The joint letter was signed by, CLF, The Center for Biological Diversity, Center for Food Safety, Center for Science in the Public Interest, Clean Air Task Force, Cool Foods Campaign, Defenders of Wildlife, Earthjustice, Environmental Integrity Project, Environmental Working Group, Farm Sanctuary, Food Animal Concerns Trust, Food & Water Watch, Friends of the Earth, Humane Society of the United States, Illinois Citizens for Clean Air & Water, National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition, Natural Resources Defense Council, Organic Consumers Association, Republicans for Environmental Protection, Sierra Club, The Wilderness Society, Union of Concerned Scientists, and Waterkeeper Alliance.
