Tell Murray Energy to Stop the War on Climate

Mr. Murray, coal-fired power plants are the single largest driver of carbon dioxide pollution and climate change. President George W. Bush's Supreme Court gave the EPA the ability to regulate carbon dioxide in 2007. The newly proposed EPA limits on carbon dioxide will protect Americans from the extreme heat and floods that continue to do untold damage to public health, agriculture and infrastructure. The energy industry must become more efficient and burn less coal. The U.S. leads industrialized nations in carbon dioxide emissions per capita and should lead efforts to reduce greenhouse gas pollution. Please spend your days figuring out...

Chicago: Ban Styrofoam Containers

Dear Mayor Emanuel and Chicago City Council Members, Styrofoam is terrible for the planet and public health. As a resident of Chicago or potential tourists we call on you to ban styrofoam containers within Chicago's cities limits. - Up to 30% of landfill space is filled with Styrofoam and other plastics - When Styrofoam is dumped in the environment, it is notorious for breaking up into pieces and clogging animals digestive systems - Toxic Chemicals can leach out of Styrofoam products into food that can effect human health and reproductive organs. As the third largest city in the United States,...

Obama, Speak Up On Climate

While other countries debate intelligent action to fight climate change, American politicians debate whether it's a hoax. President Obama, please speak up, clear the air, and lead the US on climate change!

Reduce th human population.

Human Overpopulation is the Mother of All our other environmental problems. Some 314 million Americans consume more than 40% of Earth's annually available resources. How many people can live on Earth at the American standard of living? Who wants to live at a lower standard? 314 is to 40 as X is to 100. Earth can reasonably support fewer than one billion people. There are 7 billion of us now!

Demand for Full Fracking Chemical Disclosure

We, the undersigned, in conjunction with the public comment period currently underway, call on the EPA to conduct public hearings in areas where fracking operations are either occurring or have occurred so that we may voice our concerns over the lack of full disclosure of the fracking chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing. (Docket number EPA-HQ-OPPT-2011-1019)

Frickin fracken

Fracking is dirty, and destructive to our water, environment and climate. Big oil wants to frack. Big oil does not care about our future. Stop fracking.

In addition to the thousands of New Yorkers who will attend the march, tens of thousands more will travel to our city from all across the country. Given that the City Council recently passed a resolution endorsing the People’s Climate March, we the undersigned call on the City Council to demonstrate their support by allowing for Free Public Transit within the city on September 21, 2014. Providing New Yorkers and guests this one day of...

Pass The Low Income Solar Act

The Low Income Solar Act (LISA) introduced by Senator Bernie Sanders is designed to assist low-wealth communities, communities of color, and tribal communities with facilitated access to solar power. Many low-income families who would benefit the most from a reduction in their electricity bills are not taking advantage of solar power source due to a lack of access to financing options, and/or living under a roof that cannot support a solar panel. LISA includes various mechanisms to correct this. Each senator, including yourself, on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee has either low wealth communities, communities of color, tribal...

Gov. Wolf: Don't rob alternative energy funds to build more pipelines

Governor Wolf, cancel your newly announced Pipeline Investment Program. The program takes $24 million in taxpayer money - which should be spent to benefit the public good - and uses it to only benefit the fracking industry. Fracked gas pipelines are inherently dangerous. Earlier this year, a pipeline exploded in in Westmoreland County, causing severe injury and property damage. In October, a gasoline pipeline operated by Sunoco ruptured in Lycoming County, leaking 55,000 gallons into the Susquehanna River. The Pipeline Investment Program purports to help schools and hospitals by connecting them with fracked gas energy. New fracked gas pipelines would...
