A few years ago, Walmart promised to get serious about fighting global warming. They even promised to get 100% of their power from clean, green sources. But Walmart is hiding a dirty secret: They're one of America's largest users of dirty coal electricity. Their U.S. stores use more than 4.2 million tons of coal each year. That's nearly six times […]

Last night's election was, as the President put it "a shellacking." Climate champions were replaced by climate deniers. GMO labeling was denied. Wildlife will continue being hunted in cruel and unnecessary ways. It wasn't all bad news: Several cities passed bans on fracking – including Denton, in the heart of Texas oil country. The new Congressional class includes more women than […]

Friends:

 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 […]

In the last 48 hours, our movement showed up BIG TIME to stop fracked gas exports at Cove Point, and everywhere else fracking threatens. We rallied by the thousands on Sunday with Tim DeChristopher and our friends at CCAN and Berks Gas Truth to show the White House and Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) that we want to leave dirty gas […]

Have you seen this? Thomas Friedman interviewed President Obama on climate change, and he's got some interesting things to say about fracking, climate denial, and the need for action.

When we started this fight a few years ago, conventional wisdom was that the KXL Pipeline was sure to be built. So even though the State Department delayed the final decision a few weeks ago, that's not a set-back, it's a win for the planet. Every day that the pipeline decision is delayed, the confidence of the investors needed to finance this […]

If you're inspired by these images, send your message to the State Department and President Obama today – the 30 day public comment period starts tomorrow![View the story “February 3: Nationwide vigils against […]

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 […]

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 […]
