Yes, purely national alerts are off-topic on Enviro-Mich, which
is solely devoted to Michigan environmental protection and 
conservation issues, citizen action on these issues, environmental 
consequences of actions by Michigan elected officials, local 
environmental/conservation issues in Michigan and issues
associated with Michigan industrial and resource exploitation 
sites and Michigan DEQ and DNR..

This list was established with this policy in order to maintain
the focus of the list on Michigan matters.

National alerts can be made relevant to Enviro-Mich by 
including significant and non-trivial Michigan content.   This
would include discussion of Michigan delegation members
that are important to the issue, specifics on how the national alert/
issue affects specific Michigan environmental/conservation 
issues and Michigan natural resources, environmental 
and public health problems and other relevant and 
significant "Michigan-based" environmental context (i.e.
specific organizing in Michigan on a national issue
or events/meeting discussing national issues being
held in Michigan).

Without such Michigan-specific content that actually 
explains the relation of the issue to Michigan, such 
national alerts are off-topic on Enviro-Mich.   Posters
cannot merely assume/presume that the Michigan 
connection is implicit or understood....you're going to 
have to explain in the posting why such a Michigan connection
