Califracktivation: The Video

Two weeks ago I had the honor of representing Environmental Action at the March for Real Climate Leadership in Oakland, California. It was an amazing event attended by over 8,000 fracktivists, dressed in yellow and blue, who had a simple, but powerful message for Governor Jerry Brown: End Fracking in California Now! It’s a timely message because Jerry Brown has made […]

#BlackBearsMatter

Yesterday I attended the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) hearing in Jacksonville, Florida, which was convened to discuss lifting a 20 year ban on black bear hunting throughout the State. The Florida Black Bear has made an impressive comeback during that time from a population of approximately 500 in the 1970s to approximately 3,000 today. During this same time […]

What the Deniers Giveth, They Taketh Away

I am no longer shocked, amazed, dumbfounded or even surprised by how silly members of the United States Congress behave and “legislate.” Last week, however, the U.S. Senate proved how it can take a serious issue like climate change and turn it into a perverse version of an Abbot and Costello routine. I was surprised, then dumbfounded and finally chagrined […]

Fracking: Beneath The Ground, Above The Law

We can now add a new item to the list of dangers posed by the poisonous practice of fracking: imposing on the Bill of Rights. Dominion Resources (Dominion), the same company that brought us the Cove Point LNG export facility in Maryland, has filed suit against a number of residents in Virginia who refuse to allow them on their property to […]

Like A Good Neighbor

It was seriously cold in New York City last night. So cold that I swear I saw a tauntaun run across Rockaway Boulevard on my way to the hearing for the proposed Port Ambrose LNG Import facility. Nonetheless, a coalition of fractivists including Surfrider Foundation, Sane Energy Project, Food and Water Watch and New Yorkers Against Fracking brought the heat […]

C’est La Veto

President Obama has promised to veto the Keystone Pipeline bill if the Senate passes it this week. But that may not stop the new pipeline-pals running Congress. Right now, the Senate bill has 60 co-sponsors; that means they need just six more Senators to override the President's veto. When it comes to stopping this climate-killing pipeline, we can't afford to take […]

COP20 Kicks The Climate Change Can

The United Nations Climate Change Conference recently wrapped up in Lima, Peru producing an agreement between over 200 nations known as the "Lima Accord. On the surface, it appears that the Lima Accord ends an impasse that has prevented the UN from creating a global concerted effort to fight climate change. However, digging deeper, the Lima Accord is more superficial rhetoric […]

Lame Duck; Lame Bill

The Republicans didn't even wait until assuming control of the full Congress to unleash their attack on the environment. They've given us a preview of what's to come and unwrapped a surreptitious spending bill, called the Cromnibus. Written in a cigar smoke filled back room, the bill contains a litany of stocking stuffers for their polluting pals, just in time […]

The Environmental Movement and Ferguson: From Why to How

I recently attended many of the successful and largely peaceful protest in New York City surrounding the death of Eric Gardner at the hands of the New York City Police Department. On my way home from one of them, I could not help but think about the differences between the protests in New York and those in Ferguson following the […]
