  • Exxon: To Russia with Love

    Turns out Exxon really DOES hate America! First they took our tax money, then they polluted our climate, water and air. Now they're working with a sanctioned Russian oil company to open a drilling rig in the Arctic. Get the whole story and then join us in telling them to knock it the heck off already.

  • Reject and Protect - It's a wrap!

    Some things, you truly have to see to believe, or at least to understand. Last week's reject and protect rally was one of them. For six days, a coalition of ranchers, tribal communities, environmentalists and many others came together in Washington D.C. to stand united against pollution, climate change and the political odds. Oh, and Neil Young was there, so that was awesome.

    I don't know if this action will stop the KXL pipeline. The State Department has delayed the final decision yet again, so it will be a few more months before we know for sure. But when we stop this pipeline, and all the pipelines, I believe it will be because of actions that look like this. See for yourself here

  • Another day, another pipeline spill?

    There is no safe way to drill, refine, transport or burn oil. And helpfully, Canadian news network CBC set up an infographic of their review of the last twelve years of pipeline spills, from 2001 to 2012.
    While news coverage of Big Oil's messy mistakes may be down, the rate of such spills has doubled over the last few years. Check it out and help us spread the word.

    What's up with Big Oil?

    Remember the good old days when, whatever else Congress did with it's time, you could count on its members to at least haggle, debate and eventually approve a spending plan for the $3.8 trillion of our money they collect every year?

    *sigh* It hasn't been that kind of year, so far. But don't despair just yet: because Congress is getting back to the budget debate this month, and that could be good news for the planet and all of us who live on it.

    No, really! Here's why if you care about the environment, it pays to care about the federal budget.
