There's been a lot of emails this weekend from our friends, so I thought it might help to throw out a few clarifications before the Monday events so many of you are planning to attend. First, lets reiterate what we said on Friday: The State Department report is not the final word on KXL. We know that will be a 30-day […]

Update: What’s in the jam, Smucker’s?

There's only two things that gets me more worked up than when a Fortune 500 company trashes the planet.—one is when the company lies about it, and two is when it spends hoards of cash to stop laws that would prevent the ecocide the company is causing.

If Obama is really serious about doing something about climate change, his all of the above energy plan, AKA drilling + fracking + renewables, isn't going to cut it.

Smucker’s Supports GMO Labeling… Sort Of/Not Really

The Grocery Manufacturing Association (GMA), who represents Smucker's ConAgra, PepsiCo, and other giant food companies, is going to support a national GMO labeling bill. Good news for the planet right? Not really. Politico uncovered the GMA's proposed bill, that will introduce voluntary GMO labeling and bar state-by-state labeling laws. What does this environmentalsit think of the GMA's proposed bill?When Smucker's changed their […]

A year-end gift from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court: Parts of Act 13 unconstitutional

When I was first volunteering for local anti-fracking campaigns a year ago, we had an image on file in case Act 13 was declared unconstitutional.
