Not so fast Mr. President – progress and setbacks for the planet

A few months after the planet exceeded 400 ppm of global warming pollution in the atmosphere for the first time in hundreds of years we're still seeing some mixed signals from President Obama and his team.  One day they're sweating climate change, calling it a grave threat to the national interest and promising real action. The next day they're considering allowing […]

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

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.

New Year’s Resolution: No on KXL

My New Year's resolution for 2014 is a holdover from 2013: get President Obama to say "No on Keystone XL." Please don't mistake: It's not a failure that I'm making the same resolution again. The fact is that making it all the way through 2013 without a "yes" from Obama on this issue is a huge victory for a grassroots […]

We’re Winning! #Smuckers

After 3 weeks of silence from Smucker's, on Friday we got their attention. Hundreds of Environmental Action activists jammed Smucker's phone lines for hours — demanding that CEO Richard Smucker stop blocking GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) labeling. Prior to our call in day, Richard Smucker had refused to respond to our 20,000+ petition signatures and had no official policy regarding GMO […]
