Un Fracking the COP talks

Yesterday was the day to Un-frack the #COP21 climate talks in Paris. Dozens of Environmental Action members chipped in to support a delegation from Beyond Extreme Energy — our pipeline fighting, export terminal busting, front-line community supporting buddies who you’ve met before on the sidewalks in front of FERC.Don Weightman of Philadelphia was one of a delegation of international fracktivists who […]

Women lead the way at #COP21 Climate talks

We’re celebrating Women today at the #COP21 climate conference, so Anthony sat down with one of the leaders of Via La Campesina. They’re an amzing, trans-national group of rural women from central and South America fighting the joined battles of colonialism, economic development and climate change.One of the things that makes their movement unique is that it’s all by and […]

A little too little, but not too late at #COP21

Word from the #COP21 talks is that we’re on-pace for a final agreement by Friday, but what kind of agreement is still very much in doubt. The key items under dispute remain the same:Should the temperature ‘Goal’ — essentially the upper limit of global warming we, as a planet, are prepared to accept — be set at 2C or 1.5C? Many […]

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.

A turning point for the climate in Paris, but not at the U.N. talks

This weekend was a big turning point at the climate talks. For one thing, the international negotiating team met their deadline of creating a draft agreement to combat global warming. Granted, there are still A LOT of details to be worked out. Including critical questions about whether big economies the the U.S. will really commit to keeping fossil fuels in the ground […]

Thursday action on Fracking

Yesterday, along with friends like Sierra Club and Earthjustice, we delivered over 706,000 signature to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) telling them to plug the methane leaks from oil and gas drilling.These leaks are a huge problem. Methane leaks can cause sickness and disease, as in the case of the leak detected on Oct. 23 that has sickened nearby residents of Southern […]

Double time at the #COP21 talks

We did double duty today at the #COP21 climate talks! First we helped organize a rally right in the heart of the green zone we told you about earlier with our allies at Corporate Accountability International to kick big polluters OUT of the climate talks. Later in the afternoon, we sat down for some one-on-one time with the god-parents of the modern environmental […]

Making some noise at the #COP21 talks

After two days of talks, negotiators aren’t making much progress at Le Bourget and the #COP21 talks. But the good news is that the Congressional climate stunts we reported on yesterday don’t seem to be having much of an impact either.French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius basically waved off Congress’ attempts to COP-block climate progress saying, “My sense is that that wasn’t a great […]

Slow Walking the COP21 talks

Another busy day here in Paris and Le Bourget, but negotiations of real substance are still slow to take shape.Just for fun here’s a quick version of the Walk into the conference site’s ‘Green Zone’ called the climate generations space. It’s free and open to the public, and is an easy space where anyone can come in and attend a lecture or stop […]

Will Cop21 be a triumph, a disaster, or just a lot of hot air?

Monday was a huge day for news and politics, but a slow start to the actual negotiations here in Paris. It felt like a little bit of a letdown after the weekend of intense marches and protests, including some dramatic tussles with the Police that sadly stole the headlines.Still, President Obama is here and he’s laid out the stakes pretty […]
