The Next Generation of Fracktivists Are Ready to Lead

Fracking is a bigger issue in Florida right now than just about any other place in America. That’s why I traveled to the State Capitol in Tallahassee earlier this year and worked with friends from ReThink Energy Florida, Speak Up Wekiva and Environment Florida to fight the pro-fracking Senate Bill (SB) 318. The bill would expand fracking throughout the state […]

New Lease On life Gulf action

A New Lease on Life for the Gulf

Yesterday was a turning point in our movement to keep fossil fuels in the ground. For the first time ever, we shut down a BOEM event related to the auction of fossil fuels on public lands – in this case under the Gulf of Mexico – and sent a powerful message to the Obama administration and Big Oil companies everywhere that to stop […]

Flint Hearing Sparks Congressional Combustion

Yesterday marked a moment that many in Michigan and across the country were waiting for, a Congressional Hearing on the Flint water crisis where Governor Rick Snyder would face questions while under oath. It was so important that nearly 150 citizens and activists from Flint travelled 12 hours by bus to observe the hearings themselves. They wanted answers and an explanation from […]

A Tale of Two Debates: Climate Change Makes an Appearance

It could be said of the last three Presidential debates (for both parties) that “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” The good news is that climate change made appearances at all three most recent debates — on both sides of the aisle. As I previously reported, the Flint debate included great questions on climate change, due largely to the […]

Florida #GopDeabte

LIVE – the Florida #GOPDebate

The next #GOPDebate was March 10, at Florida’s University of Miami. CNN hosted again with our old friend Jake Tapper of The Lead at the helm. This was the last debate before the March 15th Florida and Ohio primaries, a pair of winner-take-all contests in the respective home states of Marco Rubio and John Kasich. It’s no secret we’ve had some issues with Jake Tapper’s previous […]

Good Afternoon Commissioners. My name is Anthony Rogers­Wright, I am the policy director for Environmental Action, a national non­profit with nearly 1,000,000 members. I am here on behalf of our members to urge you to adopt a resolution that would ban the hunting of Black Bears in Seminole County.

GOOD News For The Bears

Last year we fought and fought to convince Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) to #StuntTheHunt of Florida’s Black Bear. You already know they didn’t listen and the result was a Black Bear Bloodbath that took nearly 300 bears from the people of Florida. Worse yet, FWC announced plans to make the hunt an annual event despite not even knowing the […]

It’ll be the second time Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton have met this week – and their eighth debate of the primary election. Univision will broadcast the debate in Spanish with Maria Elena Salinas and Jorge Ramos of Univision moderating along with Karen Tumulty from their co-host The Washington Post. There were some dramatic results to the […]

Climate/Racial Justice Makes An Appearance in Flint

Last week I delivered 100,000 petition signatures to the Democratic National Committee with friends from Color of Change, Daily Kos, Climate Hawks Vote, Friends of the Earth, Honor the Earth and the HBCU Climate Change Initiative. I must admit that I was skeptical. Even after we spoke with the DNC’s Deputy Communications Manager, who gave us assurances that Flint was not […]

#DemDebate Flint

Sunday’s #DemDebate in Flint was a Big deal. CNN’s Anderson Cooper, backed up by Dana Bash and Don Lemon did a great job asking questions on #JusticeforFlint, #ClimateJustice and more. Check it all out below and read Anthony’s recap here. Earlier this week we delivered nearly 100,000 signatures to the Democratic National Committee and CNN asking them to focus the Flint Debate solely on racial […]
