• What stopping Fracked Gas Exports looks like

    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 in the ground. And then we came back to FERC on Monday Morning - refusing to leave until some of us were carted away in handcuffs.
    Take a look at some of the photos from the last 48 hours.

    Obama Said WHAT?

    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. Check it out and encourage others to send comments on Obama's big new rule to cap global warming pollution from power plants.

  • One of those times

    The State Department final Environmental Impact Statement is out. What does it mean, and what should we do when the folks in charge of telling the president the facts about the pipeline insist on getting so many important things wrong?

    For our movement—to stop Keystone and save the climate—this is no moment to lose heart. In fact, we're actually winning. 

    There are key facts, key allies, and key opportunities for us in the next 90 days. Don't get bummed—show up. It's one of those times where our presence in the streets, online and all over will make a difference.

    What's up with Big Oil?

    Remember the good old days when, whatever else Congress did with it's time, you could count on its members to at least haggle, debate and eventually approve a spending plan for the $3.8 trillion of our money they collect every year?

    *sigh* It hasn't been that kind of year, so far. But don't despair just yet: because Congress is getting back to the budget debate this month, and that could be good news for the planet and all of us who live on it.

    No, really! Here's why if you care about the environment, it pays to care about the federal budget.
