Calling on Cuomo

Yesterday the stars were aligned for an awesome rally at the midtown Manhattan offices of Governor Andrew Cuomo. Even the weather acted in protest to the forecast of low temperatures and rain, instead providing 100 fracktivists with clear blue skies and sunshine. This certainly contributed to the lifted spirits of the fracktivists who convened in front of the governor’s office […]

2 Outs, Bottom of The 9th For Florida Black Bear

Yesterday I addressed the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) in a last ditch effort  to keep the 20 year hunting ban on hunting bears intact. It was an honor to represent the amazing membership of Environmental Action and present FWC with the $5,000 we donated towards non-lethal management tools like bear proof trash cans and public education. Thank you so […]

Tax day and the fight for $15

Why is a big ol’ environmental group like us working with the employees of Walmart, McDonald’s and a lot of other companies to stand up for fair wages today?

In fact, their U.S. stores use nearly six times as much dirty energy as the entire U.S. auto industry, including more than 4.2 million tons of coal each year. Walmart says it […]

Are Virginian’s Property Rights Totally Fracked?

Yesterday I visited Richmond, Virginia, with a coalition of local activists representing citizens and property owners asking Governor Terry McAuliffe to withdraw his support for the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) and other projects that eviscerate property rights and put communities at unnecessary risk. The ACP, which is being proposed by Dominion, LLC (the same fracked gas barons that brought us […]

Fracktivists mobilized outside of City Hall prior to City Council Hearing

No Fooling Around at City Hall

Spring is still negotiating it’s first actual appearance in New York City. And while it’s still a bit chilly here, that did not stop over 50 fracktivists from descending on City Hall to demand that Governor Andrew Cuomo issue a veto for the proposed Port Ambrose Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) import facility. The facility, which would be located off the coast […]

The Senate is moving (to stop the Bomb Trains)

Good news: Senate Democrats have heard our call for action to ban the bomb trains! Yesterday, four champions for the planet and public safety sharply criticized the lack of White House and Department of Transportation action to ban shipments of crude oil by rail as they introduced their own plan to improve safety and prevent bomb trains from exploding or […]

Tisk, Tisk TSCA: A Toxic Paradox

In what can only be described as a Shakespearean tragedy of paradox, this week the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee convened a hearing to consider an update to the 1976 Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The bill, S 697, was introduced by Senators Tom Udall (D-NM) and David Vitter (R-LA). You could say that the paradox, or at least […]
