• Who's Paying for No on 92?

    We're helping the Yes on 92 Coalition make Oregon the second state in the country with mandatory GMO labels.

  • Will EPA come clean on Fracking?

    Washington DC - Washington DC - Affected community members from Dimock, Pennsylvania, along with advocacy organizations, rallied outside of EPA Headquarters to demand that EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy either re-open investigations into fracking’s impact on people and the environment, or drink frack water from Pennsylvania that her agency has told residents is safe.

  • Letter to O'Malley: Leaders don't Frack

    More than 200 national and statewide progressive, health, environmental and community organizations called on Gov.

In a letter to the governor, the groups, including MoveOn.org, Food & Water Watch, Democracy for America, National Nurses United, Progressive Democrats of America and Environment America, highlight findings in the state’s study conducted by the Maryland School of Public Health that show fracking could have harmful and irreversible effects in Maryland.

  • So The People’s Climate March Kicked Ass, Now What?

Simply put, what’s next and where do we go from here (or there might be more appropriate)?

  • Capitalism and Climate Chaos

    You have to see it to believe it. A giant Carbon bubble, a polar bear and 1,000 people led by visionary writer Naomi Klein and inspired by her new book This Changes Everything, took over Wall Street for a day to demonstrate that unchecked Capitalism (at least the fossil-fueled kind) is destroying our climate.

    But it wasn't just a protest. Flood Wall Street also demonstrated some important ways that we can build a new economy - just, fair, and without pollution - by working together.

  • WE Built That

    It’s usually quite hard to render me speechless, to leave me in a state where I am of few words...yet I have only one word to describe what I experienced yesterday...WOW!!! When I interviewed Caroline Murray, Lead Organizer for the People’s Climate March, this past Thursday (Please check our website/Facebook page for extended footage of the interview soon), she indicated how happy she would be with an attendance of 100 to 150,000 marchers. How wrong she was; how wrong we all were....
