Three wins for the environment ahead of Christmas

Court overturns Ruataniwha dam decision, backs green groups (TVNZ One News, 12 Dec)

Rejected iron sands mining company considers fresh bid (NZ Herald, 13 Dec) – Trans Tasman Resources (TTR)  “…has abandoned a High Court appeal against a decision rejecting its application to mine up to 50 million tonnes of black sand off the West Coast seabed.”  Well done KASM and all those who have spoken against the mining proposal!

Cuomo bans fracking in New York State (EcoWatch, 17 Dec)

Government sticks head in sand (TDN, 18 Dec) – while not strictly a win, such a critical editorial in Taranaki would not have been imaginable a year ago, is the tide turning?
