Climate Change Solutions Cannot Include Fracking

Climate change is the issue of our time, so we support your decision to take executive action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. However, the window to save our planet from climate catastrophe is rapidly closing. Therefore any action taken must be swift and meaningful. The EPA proposed power plant rules set inadequate targets, fail to aggressively promote renewable energy, and by encouraging the expanded use of natural gas from fracking could actually make matters worse. Methane, the main ingredient of natural gas, is 86 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide over 20 years – the time...

Tell President Obama: Stand up to Big Oil and stop exploding oil trains!

Over the last several years, the oil and rail industries have brought the growing threat of hazardous, flammable oil trains into the Main Streets and downtowns of millions of Americans. The Department of Transportation’s new draft safety rules on the rail transport of extremely volatile and flammable crude oil must be strong, enforceable, and protect all Americans -- not Big Oil's profits.

Stop NC voter suppression by Americans For Prosperity

Hundreds of North Carolinians have called the N.C. State Board of Elections complaining about receiving incorrect voter registration information forms sent by Americans For Prosperity, a conservative political advocacy group backed by the billionaire Koch Brothers. We call on Gov. Pat McCrory to denounce AFP for their shamelessly misleading North Carolina voters.

Justice for Darrien! Stop Police Violence

Several days ago, a 22-year-old black man, Darrien Hunt, was shot multiple times in the back while running from Saratoga Springs, Utah, police officers. He was carrying a fake sword, so was, essentially, unarmed. He might as well have been carrying a stick. The officers, armed with ambiguous information, guns, AND Tasers, still shot and killed him. The details are sketchy. They have not provided answers to the family OR the community. The attorney general's office is reportedly investigating. It is TIME for change. This is a racist crime. Children of color are a huge minority in this state and...

The long term benefits to Tucson and Pima County far outweigh the modest short term budget savings gained by defunding this project. Please do the right thing and support funding for Pima County's community cat program in Tucson.

Tell Gov. Corbett: You can't erase climate change

Just the other week, a new Audubon Society report noted that climate change imperils more than half of U.S. bird—that includes Pennsylvania's state bird the Ruffed Grouse and the Bald eagle. You can't just ignore this problem or order your staff to delete it off websites to make it disappear. I want you to let the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources highlight how climate change will impact our natural heritage and wildlife on their website—and then get to work solving the problem.

VICTORY: Tribune Papers Spared From Koch Empire

When the Tribune Company went up for sale, it was widely reported that the Koch brothers were interested in acquiring its newspapers - including the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune.
