Climate Justice Youth to Senate: The Ban Must Stand!

Enter Your Information Below:Even though Big Oil has been nothing but naughty, some members of Congress want to give them an early holiday gift. These Senators are willing to deal away our climate, public lands and health in exchange for a weak deal to support renewable energy in a must-pass spending bill. Just today Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), a member of […]

A turning point for the climate in Paris, but not at the U.N. talks

This weekend was a big turning point at the climate talks. For one thing, the international negotiating team met their deadline of creating a draft agreement to combat global warming. Granted, there are still A LOT of details to be worked out. Including critical questions about whether big economies the the U.S. will really commit to keeping fossil fuels in the ground […]

Thursday action on Fracking

Yesterday, along with friends like Sierra Club and Earthjustice, we delivered over 706,000 signature to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) telling them to plug the methane leaks from oil and gas drilling.These leaks are a huge problem. Methane leaks can cause sickness and disease, as in the case of the leak detected on Oct. 23 that has sickened nearby residents of Southern […]

Double time at the #COP21 talks

We did double duty today at the #COP21 climate talks! First we helped organize a rally right in the heart of the green zone we told you about earlier with our allies at Corporate Accountability International to kick big polluters OUT of the climate talks. Later in the afternoon, we sat down for some one-on-one time with the god-parents of the modern environmental […]

Making some noise at the #COP21 talks

After two days of talks, negotiators aren’t making much progress at Le Bourget and the #COP21 talks. But the good news is that the Congressional climate stunts we reported on yesterday don’t seem to be having much of an impact either.French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius basically waved off Congress’ attempts to COP-block climate progress saying, “My sense is that that wasn’t a great […]

Slow Walking the COP21 talks

Another busy day here in Paris and Le Bourget, but negotiations of real substance are still slow to take shape.Just for fun here’s a quick version of the Walk into the conference site’s ‘Green Zone’ called the climate generations space.

Will Cop21 be a triumph, a disaster, or just a lot of hot air?

Monday was a huge day for news and politics, but a slow start to the actual negotiations here in Paris. It felt like a little bit of a letdown after the weekend of intense marches and protests, including some dramatic tussles with the Police that sadly stole the headlines.Still, President Obama is here and he’s laid out the stakes pretty […]

From Paris, COP21 Eve: Hold The Line

Today was the official kick off of the COP21 Global United Nations Climate Change Summit. Yesterday, as we gathered to wish the wold a Bon Voyage for the talks, emotions were high for many reasons, starting with the location of the summit, Paris, France. Here in one of the greatest cities in the world, peaceful citizens were struck by calamitous events that took […]

Starving for change at Walmart

Some things are just morally wrong. Like when Walmart, the biggest private employer in America, owned by one of the wealthiest families in the world, refuses to pay their employees enough to feed their families. Or when President Obama gives Walmart an award for climate action, even though after promising to clean up their act, Walmart uses more coal than ever. Even […]

What If Environmental Organizations Were College Campuses?

Earlier this month a social revolution was hatched on the campus of the University of Missouri that led to swift changes and will hopefully open a path to greater equality, representation and shared power. And the best part about it is that it was led by our future leaders, students and youth, in a demonstration of grassroots activism and civil […]
