2015 in Review

Remember that time we stopped the pipeline, saved a species, shut down FERC or called out climate denial live on national TV? I do. But there’s no way I could fit all the amazing stuff you, me and everyone at Environmental Action did this year into one message. So check out our 2015 highlight reel – stuffed full of more […]

Word from the #COP21 talks is that we’re on-pace for a final agreement by Friday, but what kind of agreement is still very much in doubt.

That’s a show of resolve that would never have happened without our movement organizing. […]

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.

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.
