• Pass SB 1132 California Fracking Moratorium
    Last year, under pressure from the oil industry, the California Legislature failed to pass a moratorium on fracking. Since then, fracking has continued to expand in California, putting our communities, our water supply and the climate at risk. Now we have another chance to pass a fracking moratorium bill. State Senators Holly Mitchell and Mark Leno introduced SB 1132, a strong moratorium bill that, if passed, will protect California from fracking and other well stimulation techniques. SB 1132 just got a yes vote at the first committee hearing. The next vote is on April 30. We have a real opportunity to pass a fracking moratorium in California this year. The oil industry will spend huge amounts of money and political capital fighting this bill. We need your help before the next vote on April 30. Please sign the petition to urge our California State Legislators to vote yes on SB 1132 for a fracking moratorium now.

  • U.S. House of Representatives must immediately pass the Green New Deal and Medicare For All
    Americans, who mostly support these two bills, need assurance from our Congress members that the future is toward care of the Earth, its people and life itself. The 2020 Democratic Party Platform ahead of Nov. 3rd will be greatly enhanced in its power if the House takes action now on these two sweeping policy programs.

  • Climate Change is KILLING our Planet. Politicians & Corporations MUST take IMMEDIATE ACTION
    Climate Change is a reality. ACTION to stop man-made carbon dioxide is an EMERGENCY and the timeline is MOST URGENT now. Deniers are operating in the interests of fossil-carbon-based industries. Fixing the man-made contributions of carbon dioxide and methane in the atmosphere is far more URGENT than politicians and multi-national corporations realize. The deniers scoff at the conclusions of The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the guidelines they provided in 2006. The IPCC was founded in 1988. It took 18 years just to produce agreed-upon guidelines acceptable to all the nations that were part of the IPCC. Even with the massive effort needed to transform the American (and the rest of the world's) economy to a wholly renewable, sustainable carbon-neutral fuel system with best efforts and total support from government and corporate policies, even with enthusiasm and all haste in supporting the efforts it will take several years to accomplish this kind of change. Setting timeline goals of 2030 and 2050 is no guarantee that these measures will be effective enough to avoid billions (yes, billions!) of deaths as a result of Climate Change. Some scientists even claim that we may reach a point, very soon, that the effects of Climate Change will accelerate, feeding on the current effects themselves to continue in a self-sustaining way. We have arrived at a point that politicians have noticed that Climate Change requires attention. We need to make them (and corporate CEOs) aware just how URGENT an EMERGENCY this is, and to take massive and IMMEDIATE action to address this global problem. This is no time to spend another 18 years of debate to produce nothing but more guidelines. As one politician has said, we need to put ourselves, "On a war footing" as we did in gearing up for WWII. The USA reacted with fast-paced and transformative changes. We need immediate results on that scale and we need it NOW. Despite critticism of the cost, there is also huge economic opportunity in this transition. There is no one to fight here, no bombs or guns can defeat it. It cannot be condensed into the single face of an enemy but it is the world's problem, and we must unite to defeat this common foe. We must hold our politicians and corporate leaders responsible to take IMMEDIATE and MASSIVE WORLDWIDE ACTION to create worldwide infrastructure in support of sustainable, renewable fuel that does not put fossil carbon into an atmosphere already overloaded with climate changing elements. Contact your local politician. Demand change!

  • Repeal of the Jones Act
    Because it’s having a heavy impact on Puerto Rico’s economy. It’s also making it much harder for Puerto Rico to get basic necessities at a reasonable price when American citizens need it most.

  • Uranium is Dangerous to the Environment
    Petition on the ban of uranium should be taken seriously. Uranium is used in making nuclear bombs powerful in destruction of lives. It can easily be transported to rogue states. North Korea sells their nuclear materials for exchange of food.

  • NEW SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING AND MATH CABINET POSITION FOR PRESIDENT
    Politicians are rarely scientists, engineers or mathematicians. These areas progress, change and discover new things pretty much daily and are advancing in complexity. The President of the United States can impact the world today and for decades to come with decisions that they may not fully understand how these impacts will be felt. They need a STEM cabinet position to help them understand, no matter what their political party affiliation.

  • Don't Let Snowmobiles Drive Caribou to Extinction
    Conservationists have struggled to protect these animals for years, and have failed, largely due to opposition from snowmobile users. In 2012, the Fish and Wildlife Service proposed to set aside more than 375,000 acres of critical habitat for the caribou, but opposition forced officials to reduce that to 30,000 acres. Partly as a result, these Caribou are now nearly extinct. These magnificent animals are uniquely adapted to the harsh environment of the Selkirk Mountains. We can't let a small group of people concerned only with their own amusement drive them out of existence!

  • Support Roof Top Solar Panels
    This provides a diversified source of power, eliminates the need for installing and maintaining hundreds of miles of transmission lines and supports our transition to an alternative energy source. Concentrated energy sources and transmission lines are susceptible to floods, fire. weather events and acts of terrorism.

  • Support the Great Monarch Butterfly Migration
    Monarchs are being seriously depleted--through loss of habitat and especially loss of milkweed, which they depend on to feed their caterpillars to carry on their amazing migration across North America every year.

  • Ban Fracking in Maryland Now
    Governor Cuomo of New York just declared a ban on fracking based on a recently released scientific study demonstrating "significant public health risks" associated with fracking, including water contamination and air pollution. Former Governor O'Malley of Maryland ordered a study of the potential impact of fracking on Maryland, which estimated that drilling and extraction could support as many as 3,400 jobs and generate millions in tax revenues--but that those benefits are likely to last only a few years, and that energy development could hurt tourism and outdoor recreation, two other industries on which Maryland relies. Although O'Malley concluded that fracking could be done safely if very strict regulations are placed on companies for protecting the environment, experience has shown that in practice, regulations are often violated at the expense of the environment. It's not worth the short-term financial gain to put Maryland at risk for long-term disastrous environmental consequences. It is time for Governor Larry Hogan to take action and ban fracking in Maryland now.
