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

Introduction It’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 […]

Live chat to save Florida Bears

Check out the recording of our live chat on Florida bears with special guests from the Florida Humane Society.  We discussed the history of Black Bears in the state, why and how the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission has proposed to open a hunting season on them, and why non-lethal alternatives like better trash cans and public education are a […]

No Fooling Around at City Hall

Spring is still negotiating it’s first actual appearance in New York City. And while it’s still a bit chilly here, that did not stop over 50 fracktivists from descending on City Hall to demand that Governor Andrew Cuomo issue a veto for the proposed Port Ambrose Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) import facility. The facility, which would be located off the coast […]

The Senate is moving (to stop the Bomb Trains)

Good news: Senate Democrats have heard our call for action to ban the bomb trains! Yesterday, four champions for the planet and public safety sharply criticized the lack of White House and Department of Transportation action to ban shipments of crude oil by rail as they introduced their own plan to improve safety and prevent bomb trains from exploding or […]

Tisk, Tisk TSCA: A Toxic Paradox

In what can only be described as a Shakespearean tragedy of paradox, this week the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee convened a hearing to consider an update to the 1976 Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The bill, S 697, was introduced by Senators Tom Udall (D-NM) and David Vitter (R-LA). You could say that the paradox, or at least […]

FERC meeting disrupted over Cove Point, again

More than a dozen of our allies from Cove Point Maryland and other frontline communities disrupted the monthly Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) commissioners’ meeting on Thursday. They were there to deliver more than 20,000 messages from Environmental Action members and other allies calling on FERC to shut down the construction of a massive fracked gas export terminal at Cove […]

KXL update – VETO!

We’re all celebrating the Keystone XL veto. But as Anthony points out, the fight isn’t over yet. Since the video is a little windy, let me add three points: President Obama didn’t hesitate, he vetoed the KXL bill within hours of Congress (finally) sending it to him. That’s a show of resolve that would never have happened without our movement organizing. […]
