Did the DNC Just Do a Number on the Climate?

After a blistering primary season (which is technically still going), both parties are settling down to write their party platforms – a unity document that’s supposed to express the nature of what it means to be a “Democrat” or a “Republican” in 2016. For the Democratic National Committee (DNC), that means that Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders camps have each appointed members to […]

Direct Dialogue With The DNC: You Also Deny Climate Science

Last week I had the opportunity to address the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) platform committee in Phoenix, Arizona. Tens of thousands of us have been petitioning the DNC and their Republican counterparts to include a ban on fracking, and a move to #KeepItInTheGround in this year’s platforms. Phoenix was the second city in two weeks to hear testimony from invited guests and […]

offshore drilling delivery at BOEM

BOEM goes the dynamite – 1 million comments opposing offshore drilling delivered!

Last week was a watershed moment in the fight to stop offshore drilling and convince President Obama’s team to keep fossil fuels in the ground. It started, as it always does, with concerned activists and members like YOU – who signed on to petitions telling the President’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) to scrap all new offshore oil drilling in […]

Keep It In the Ground Obama!

We had a huge victory when coastal communities and nearly half a million Americans (including over 20,000 Environmental Action members) demanded President Obama protect the Atlantic Ocean from offshore drilling. He listened, and took all new Atlantic oil drilling off the table in his 5 year plan for drilling.1 Now, we have another opportunity to stop dangerous drilling plans before they […]

Coalition Sends Message to DNC: Don’t Frack This UP

With both the presidential primaries winding down, both the DNC and GOP are developing their party platforms ahead of their respective conventions in July. The platforms are supposed to define a sort of consensus positions for each party’s candidates during the general election season. A sort of short list of what it means to be a Democrat or Republican in […]

A Memorial for Climate Martyrs

The Forgotten, Ineffable Climate Martyrs I must commence by ensuring the readers that I mean no disrespect whatsoever to the brave women and men who have given themselves in military service to the United States. Nor do I wish to diminish the beliefs of anyone who contends that military service-people who died, did so to protect the freedoms we enjoy in this […]

Join the Clean Energy Revolution

So you say you want a (clean energy) Revolution?

This summer, all eyes will be on Philadelphia during the Democratic National Convention July 25-28. But before the press and delegates show up, there’s something important the nation (and all those politicians) need to talk about: Fracking and fossil fuels. More specifically, the fact that America’s boom in fracked gas and extreme energy is endangering our health and climate, and […]

Call to Stop the Toxic TSCA bill

Call Congress to Stop the Toxic TSCA bill

Enter Your Information Below: Senate negotiators and House Republicans have struck a deal to overhaul chemical safety laws, and a vote could happen this week — But there’s a toxic pill in the bill. Unless we speak up, Congress will approve an update to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) that makes it harder for states to regulate or ban dangerous chemicals in […]

Rubber Stamp Rebellion call button

The Rubber Stamp Rebellion will not be televised

When it comes to the rebellion against fossil fuels and fracked gas infrastructure, in particular, you need to do more than tune in — you need to show up, speak out and get radical to make change. Fortunately that’s exactly what we’ve been doing all week as part of the #RubberStampRebellion in Washington, D.C. But the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), has not […]
