Hi there,

Today is Giving Tuesday, a day dedicated to supporting non-profits. Democracy Now! is a free source of independent news for tens of millions of people around the world, but less than 1% of our global audience donates to support our critical journalism. Let’s pick up the percentage! In honor of Giving Tuesday, a generous contributor will TRIPLE your donation to Democracy Now!, which means if you give $10, we’ll get $30. Please don’t miss out on this opportunity to triple your impact. Democracy Now! doesn't accept advertising income, corporate underwriting or government funding because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. We rely on you for support—and we’re counting on you right now. I hope you’ll give as much as you can today. Every dollar makes a difference. Thanks so much.
-Amy Goodman

Biden Yields to Manchin’s “Dirty Deal” on Oil and Gas Projects as Manchin Vows to Stonewall EPA Noms

HeadlineMay 11, 2023

The Biden administration has agreed to conservative Democratic Senator Joe Manchin’s plan to expedite the approval of fossil fuel projects, which activists have dubbed “Manchin’s dirty deal.” The White House said the endorsement of Manchin’s plan was in exchange for speeding up the construction of new transmission lines for renewable energy, which are needed to meet Biden’s climate goals. This comes even as Manchin vowed Wednesday to oppose all of Biden’s nominees for the Environmental Protection Agency unless his administration rescinds a plan to limit power plant emissions.
