RNC platform fracking

It’s no secret that of the two major political parties, the Republicans are the less climate hawkish.

Rubber Stamp Rebellion call button

When it comes to the rebellion against fossil fuels and fracked gas infrastructure, in particular, you need to do more than tune in — you need to show up, speak out and get radical to make change.
