Clean Energy March front age of Democratic Convention

The Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) convention officially launches today, but climate activists wasted no time making their presence known in Philadelphia, or as we like to say the DNC in PHL: Last weekend we held a series of events and mobilizations. We joined friends from Food & Water Watch, Americans Against Fracking, Stop the Frack Attack and for the Summit […]
RNC platform fracking

It’s no secret that of the two major political parties, the Republicans are the less climate hawkish. All through the early part of the primary process, we pressured candidates from both parties — but especially the Republicans — to face up to the facts that climate change is real, caused by humans and that we need a massive national response at all levels of […]

We had a huge victory when coastal communities and nearly half a million Americans (including over 20,000 Environmental Action members) demanded President Obama protect the Atlantic Ocean from offshore drilling. He listened, and took all new Atlantic oil drilling off the table in his 5 year plan for drilling.1Now, we have another opportunity to stop dangerous drilling plans before they […]
Join the Clean Energy Revolution

This summer, all eyes will be on Philadelphia during the Democratic National Convention July 25-28. But before the press and delegates show up, there’s something important the nation (and all those politicians) need to talk about: Fracking and fossil fuels. More specifically, the fact that America’s boom in fracked gas and extreme energy is endangering our health and climate, and […]
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. Fortunately that’s exactly what we’ve been doing all week as part of the #RubberStampRebellion in Washington, D.C.But the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), has not […]
