An Un BEAR able Decision In Florida

Yesterday the Florida Wildlife Commission (FWC) in a 5-1 decision, voted to lift the 40 year Florida Black Bear hunting ban. They did this despite the fact that a majority of Floridians (75 percent) oppose the hunt after a massive public education campaign by Environmental Action members and our allies — including running ads like the on on the right […]

Taking TSCA To Task

Today, around 6:30 PM EST, the House of Representatives will vote on H.R. 2576, “To Modernize the Toxic Substances and Control Act and For Other Purposes.”  The goal of the bill is to update the very outdated Toxic Substances and Control Act (TSCA) of 1976. On the one hand I totally agree that TSCA needs to be updated to best […]

Free Trade, Superfluous Acronyms and The Environment

Today was a dizzying day in the House of Representatives as they voted on a package of bills associated with trade legislation. The package included the so-called “Fast Track” authority, which would give President Obama authority to negotiate free trade deals such as the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) without Congressional input. Sensing how close the vote would be, the president made […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Earth Day Blues: 45 Years Later, The Environmental Movement Still Whiter Than Green

IntroductionIt’s been 45 years since the very first Earth Day, the same day that Environmental Action was born. Since then, the environmental movement has grown in many positive ways. With new challenges, the movement has implemented myriad new tactics to improve and increase mobilization, fundraising, list growth and to inform the public about pressing environmental issues. However, there is one […]

2 Outs, Bottom of The 9th For Florida Black Bear

Yesterday I addressed the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) in a last ditch effort  to keep the 20 year hunting ban on hunting bears intact. It was an honor to represent the amazing membership of Environmental Action and present FWC with the $5,000 we donated towards non-lethal management tools like bear proof trash cans and public education.Thank you so […]

Are Virginian’s Property Rights Totally Fracked?

Yesterday I visited Richmond, Virginia, with a coalition of local activists representing citizens and property owners asking Governor Terry McAuliffe to withdraw his support for the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) and other projects that eviscerate property rights and put communities at unnecessary risk. The ACP, which is being proposed by Dominion, LLC (the same fracked gas barons that brought us […]
