Solar Panel Roofs In All High Sun Areas

Recently, flying back from Las Vegas and then Florida, I noticed many rooftops baking in the sun. What if there were solar panels on all those roofs? How much electricity could all those buildings save? Please provide incentives for businesses in sunny areas to put solar panels on wasted roof space. These incentives could be tax credits, reduced rent space, or the savings on the power bill.

What's in the Jam, Smucker's?

Smucker's has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on campaign contributions to block GMO labeling laws. Tell Smucker's CEO Richard Smucker to stop blocking GMO labeling and to label the GMOs in his products.

To Save Wildlife, Replace Killing License FUNDING of state agencies with general public funds.

I propose FAIR PAY/FAIR SAY/FAIR PLAY. The bias of killing license funding of state agencies that govern wildlife is an atrocity that has created maximum torture and killing of wildlife on most public lands. We need to legislate general public funds to replace killing license funding. Wildlife watchers already bring 10-40 times the revenue of the 5% minority who kill serially, to state tax coffers. Organize to push it to fair power.

Don't Frack St. Tammany Parish

The citizens of St. Tammany Parish have spoken, and spoken loudly. They don't want the Helis fracking facility in their community. The documented negative effects of fracking on the natural environment and public health are bad enough, but the fact that this facility would be located next to Lakeshore High School goes too far. We must protect all of our resources, including our most precious resource, our children. Therefore, we the undersigned urge you to block the Helis fracking facility, to listen to the citizens of St. Tammany and to uphold St. Tammany's zoning laws, which prohibit this facility from...

Attorney General Mark Herring: Protect Private Property Rights

We call upon Mark Herring, Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Virginia to uphold the 5th Amendment of the U S Bill of Rights . We regard Section 56-49.01 of the Virginia Code as unconstitutional since it permits companies such as Dominion Resources, Williams and MVP,LLC to survey private properties for gas transmission lines without due process or the just compensation mandated by the fifth amendment. We therefore insist that Mr. Herring work together with Governor Terry McAuliffe and the General Assembly to correct this error and protect the rights of the citizens of Virginia rather than siding with corporations....

Penn State dropping “The Boom” on freshmen? We say NO!

We, the undersigned, believe it is unacceptable that you have selected Russell Gold’s pro-fracking book, "The Boom: How Fracking Ignited the American Energy Revolution and Changed the World", as compulsory reading for all incoming freshmen as part of this year’s Penn State Reads program. While other academic institutions are correctly divesting of fossil fuel investments, you are glorifying an extractive technology that is contributing to climate change and harming Pennsylvanians and our environment in the process. We demand that you remove "The Boom" from this year’s Penn State Reads program and break your ties with the filthy fossil fuel...

Don't allow Grays Harbor to be Big Oil's sacrifice zone!

The Westway and Imperium oil terminal proposals present too much risk without reward. A single major oil spill could devastate the area’s maritime economy, productive fisheries, tribal cultures and economies, and spectacular coastal waters. Given the alarming safety record of oil trains in recent months, an explosive oil train derailment is a very real possibility. There are better way to meet our energy needs. Washington State is already moving away from fossil fuels and towards clean, renewable sources to meet our energy needs. Building more fossil fuel infrastructure will only chain us to the energy past, and at a terrible...

Protect the Boundary Waters

Mining companies are pushing to conduct a toxic form of mining called sulfide mining, next to the Boundary Waters. Runoff from this mining can create toxic sulfuric acid and cause mercury contamination -- both of which could flow into and pollute the pristine Boundary Waters area. We don't risk this natural treasure by allowing dangerous sulfide mining in Boundary Waters watershed.

Environmental Disaster

Since our government doesn't protect our environment - It is Time for the Public to sue the Oil, Gas, & Nuclear Energy Industries for neglect of our environment & for the Suppression of New Advanced Technologies. The money claimed will be used to fund New Technologies that lack funding. We no longer need the use of oil, gas, or nuclear energy and they have known it and continue to pollute our environment.

Chevron, Pizza Coupons to Apologize for a Well Explosion? Really?

We, the undersigned, are calling on John Watson to apologize for giving neighbors of a gas well that exploded In Greene County, Pennsylvania coupons for a free pizza and two-liter bottle of soda. One man died, and another was injured. A tragedy occurred. A coupon for pizza and soda to make up for that is an insult.

Say NO to the Cove Point LNG Export Facility!

I respectfully submit this public comment to urge FERC to reject Dominion Resources’ application to construct a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility at Cove Point in southern Maryland (Docket #CP13-113). Given evidence that Dominion’s proposed Cove Point project will harm regional air and water quality, increase the demand for dangerous natural gas fracking, and trigger an exorbitant amount of greenhouse gas pollution – potentially equal to all of Maryland’s coal-fired power plants combined – this project is not in the public interest. The only way that FERC could possibly justify the Cove Point project is by sweeping the dangers under the rug, and...

Support Animal Welfare & Human Health: End Cruel Factory-Farming

Animals have a unique purpose with special abilities, senses, intelligence, emotional lives, and the right to live freely. They are not born to live in barbaric conditions, to be used only as a commodity for profit, then mercilessly discarded or slaughtered. We can all help: pledge to stop eating animals, or eat less, and SIGN this petition.

Governor McAuliffe: Uphold Private Property Rights

Due to Virginia Code Section 56-49.01, natural gas companies like Dominion Resources can trespass onto the private property of Virginia citizens to survey for gas pipelines without due process or compensation. This is nothing more than an attack on the Bill of Rights, specifically the 5th Amendment. Private property rights should never be infringed upon, and especially not for oil and gas exploration or fracking. We call on Governor McAuliffe to meet with property owners who are now being sued by Dominion for refusing to allow them onto their property, and, furthermore, call on the Governor to develop new legislation...
