Thunder over New Orleans Lightning strikes our movement

Ten years ago this week, Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans. It was a super storm powered by warming oceans, extreme weather and climate change. Nearly half of the city was forced to evacuate, but not everyone was impacted equally. Like most climate disasters, low-wealth communities and communities of color were hit the hardest — and many of them simply […]

all fracking considered

What’s your NPR fracking horror story?

Loading… If you’re an avid NPR listener, you’ve probably heard one or two “fracking horror stories.” I’m talking about the ones that tell you fracked gas is clean-er, safe-er or spurring the economic development of some little town that’s just SO GRATEFUL, and then ends with an ad from the American Natural Gas Association (ANGA) that tells you to “think about […]

Climate Debate

A Grand Old Climate Denial Party

Last night 17 Republicans took the stage in Ohio as part of two sessions of the first debate of the GOP Primary. For weeks, Environmental Action members have been calling out the entire Republican field of the troubling trend of climate denial. We had hoped, with the big news of President Obama’s Clean Power Plan dominating the news and several candidates […]

Carbon Bath

The Clean Power Plan Cannot Exist In a Vacuum

The United States (U.S.) currently has no rules for global warming pollution from power plants. This is significant given that power plants account for roughly 40 percent of carbon dioxide emissions — the single largest source in the nation. Globally, U.S. power plants accounted for 6 percent of global warming emissions, second only to China. For these reasons, President Obama’s […]

GOP debate RSVP

GOP Debate watch party – RSVP!

The Fox News debate starts tonight at 9pm Eastern, but the media is still failing to fact-check many candidates’ climate denying statements.

RSVP here to get a […]

Frack Free Local Radio

Frack free local NPR!

NPR is still taking money from frackers, running pro-fracking ads and reporting stories with a pro-fracked gas bias. So far, we’ve had trouble getting the national reporters and ombuds people to listen to our concerns, so we’re trying a new angle to turn up the volume and get them to drop the frackers: NPR gets more money from local stations (like […]

Illinois hunters target bobcats

Bobcats will not be protected in Illinois, after Gov. Bruce Rauner signed a law Tuesday. Illinois hunters will target bobcats beginning next year. This is over the express objections of tens of thousands of Illinoisans and wildlife lovers who wrote the governor asking him to veto the bill. It’s a slap in the face to the 75% of Illinois voters who […]
