Bears are calling on Rick Scott

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) is only weeks away from authorizing a bear hunt. And our best chance to stunt the hunt and save the bears is to convince Gov. Rick Scot that it’s a bad idea for Florida’s tourism industry to allow the senseless and cruel killing of these shy forest dwellers.But we need your help getting Gov. Scott’s attention. Can you to […]

Even for FERC, this is UnFracking believable

This is low, even for the secretive and “rogue agency” known as the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC): Late yesterday evening when they thought nobody would notice, they quietly rescheduled their May meeting, and specifically said they were trying to avoid our protest action for the same day. FERC claims that we’re a safety risk, and that they need help from […]

Senate Passes Budget Without Addressing Climate Change…Sort of

Early this week the Senate approved the same basic budget plan that passed the House last week. As we reported, this budget failed to include an amendment introduced by Senator Michael Bennett (D-CO)  to consider national security and economic risks associated with human-induced climate change. This amendment previously passed in the Senate and should have instructed the House to include climate risks in their budget.  But the […]

Stop the Ferc-us, not one more permit

Calling on Cuomo

Yesterday the stars were aligned for an awesome rally at the midtown Manhattan offices of Governor Andrew Cuomo. Even the weather acted in protest to the forecast of low temperatures and rain, instead providing 100 fracktivists with clear blue skies and sunshine. This certainly contributed to the lifted spirits of the fracktivists who convened in front of the governor’s office […]
