Wishing Exxon, API and Big Oil A Crude Christmas

Dear ExxonMobil Corporation:Thanks to the amazing reporting of InsideClimate News, we know that you were not alone in one of the biggest cover-up scandals in human history.

2015 in Review

2015 Review

Remember that time we stopped the pipeline, saved a species, shut down FERC or called out climate denial live on national TV? I do. But there’s no way I could fit all the amazing stuff you, me and everyone at Environmental Action did this year into one message. So check out our 2015 highlight reel – stuffed full of more […]

D12 Red Lines at the Cop21 conference closing

The final agreement at #COP21 is out. It’s a victory simply because this is the first time the world has gotten together and said climate change is real, we all have to do something about it and that means reducing pollution.

Climate Justice Youth to Senate: The Ban Must Stand!

Enter Your Information Below:Even though Big Oil has been nothing but naughty, some members of Congress want to give them an early holiday gift. These Senators are willing to deal away our climate, public lands and health in exchange for a weak deal to support renewable energy in a must-pass spending bill. Just today Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), a member of […]
