• WE Built That

    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 how happy she would be with an attendance of 100 to 150,000 marchers. How wrong she was; how wrong we all were....

  • 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.

  • Reject and Protect - It's a wrap!

    Some things, you truly have to see to believe, or at least to understand. Last week's reject and protect rally was one of them. For six days, a coalition of ranchers, tribal communities, environmentalists and many others came together in Washington D.C. to stand united against pollution, climate change and the political odds. Oh, and Neil Young was there, so that was awesome.

    I don't know if this action will stop the KXL pipeline. The State Department has delayed the final decision yet again, so it will be a few more months before we know for sure. But when we stop this pipeline, and all the pipelines, I believe it will be because of actions that look like this. See for yourself here
