In this episode, Earthjustice staffer Jessica Knoblauch reports on the record-breaking ice melt that’s occurring in the Arctic. As Arctic temperatures increase, research suggests that warmer waters could shift weather patterns elsewhere, bringing more extreme weather to the U.S.
Earthjustice Press Secretary Kari Birdseye speaks with David Henkin, an attorney in our Mid-Pacific office. For almost two decades, Henkin has worked to force the U.S Army to stop live-fire training operations at the Mākua Military Reservation on Oʻahu. A culturally and ecologically important area, Mākua is home to scores of ancient Hawaiian artifacts, cultural sites and nearly 50 endangered plants and animals.

In March 2012, Sen. Sherrod Brown voted to reduce toxic emissions from industrial power plants or boilers. As a result, thousands of children will be protected from hospital visits, severe asthma attacks and even death.

An interview with attorney Erika Rosenthal on how Earthjustice is engaging the international community in the process of reducing the causes of climate change, including tackling emissions on the international stage and working to reduce emissions of other global warming pollutants, like black carbon and ozone, which are accelerating warming and melting in the Arctic.
Earthjustice staffer Jessica Knoblauch speaks with Steve Roady, Managing Attorney for Oceans at Earthjustice. For more than a decade, Roady has been litigating cases that help protect our oceans from pollution, overfishing and habitat loss. Earthjustice is also ramping up efforts to mitigate climate change impacts to the ocean, such as sea level rise and ocean acidification.
Earthjustice staffer Jessica Knoblauch speaks with Patti Goldman, Vice President for Litigation at Earthjustice. Before serving as Vice President, Goldman headed Earthjustice’s northwest regional office where she has spearheaded efforts to protect the orca whales that make Puget Sound their home. The iconic creatures are at risk of extinction due to a decline in both the abundance and toxic contamination of salmon, their main food source.
Earthjustice staffer Jessica Knoblauch speaks with Andrea Treece, an attorney who focuses on west coast issues as part of Earthjustice’s core oceans litigation team. Treece first started at Earthjustice as an intern for the Ocean Law Project. She now works on protecting forage fish species like herring, anchovies and sardines, which serve as the building blocks of the ocean food web and are being vacuumed out of the ocean at unsustainable levels.
Earthjustice staffer Jessica Knoblauch speaks with Roger Fleming, an Earthjustice attorney who focuses on east coast issues as part of a core oceans litigation team. Since 2007, Fleming has worked with local fishermen to promote healthy ocean ecosystems in New England, an area that is often referred to as the poster child for bad fisheries management. Over the years, Earthjustice has had a string of victories that have led to more sustainable fisheries on the east coast.
Earthjustice staffer Jessica Knoblauch speaks with David Doubilet, an acclaimed underwater photographer for National Geographic. Doubilet has spent decades photographing underwater images and has seen first-hand how ocean stressors have negatively impacted the aquatic environment he loves. In this conversation, Doubilet speaks about the changes he’s seen to the ocean over the past twenty years, particularly the effects that climate change is having on coral reefs. He also discusses his time as an underwater photographer and explorer for National Geographic.
On September 15, 2011, Earthjustice hosted a telepress conference with three of the leading research scientists on climate change, who spoke about the massive ice melt record, weather patterns and rising sea levels.
The lowest amounts of Arctic sea ice on record since satellite monitoring began in 1979 have all been recorded during the last six years. It’s possible to slow the pace of warming and melting in the Arctic in the near term by reducing emissions of soot and smog, which would have fast climate benefits.
Deborah Goldberg, Managing Attorney at Earthjustice's Northeast Office and a nationally recognized expert on the environmental impacts of natural gas development, discusses Earthjustice's campaign to clean up and regulate the natural gas industry.

Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, has spawned a new generation of superweeds that are spreading rapidly across the United States. Use an interactive map to find out where superweeds have made their appearance.
Gershon Cohen, project director of the Campaign to Safeguard America’s Waters, speaks with Earthjustice staffer Jessica Knoblauch. For more than a decade, Cohen has been working to clean up the cruise ship industry, which routinely dumps wastewater pollution into national and international waterways. In June, Earthjustice, on behalf of conservation groups like Cohen’s, successfully defended an Alaskan ballot initiative that called for cruise ships to stop discharging waste into Alaska’s pristine waters.
Earthjustice staffer Jessica Knoblauch speaks with George Kimbrell, a staff attorney at the Center for Food Safety. Kimbrell is currently serving as co-counsel in Earthjustice’s genetically modified sugar beet and alfalfa cases. In 2006, the Center for Food Safety challenged the USDA’s approval of genetically modified alfalfa, a case that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and resulted in the ban of the GE crop.
Earthjustice staffer Jessica Knoblauch speaks with Frank Morton, an organic farmer who is a client member in Earthjustice’s Roundup Ready sugar beet case. Morton, a seed grower in the Willamette Valley, believes that the USDA’s approval of genetically engineered sugar beets poses a threat to his organic seed crop. Roundup Ready sugar beets are wind pollinators, which means that pollen from Roundup Ready beets could contaminate non-GE beets and other compatible species, such as red chard.
