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)

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...

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...

NO CPV VALLEY FRACK-FIRED POWER PLANT IN NY

Whereas the CPV Valley Energy Center project will be a new source of over two million tons of greenhouse gases in New York state; will facilitate and depend on frack fields in Pennsylvania; is predicated on fracking in New York State; and will take us on the wrong road, away from a viable and sustainable energy future which can only be obtained with a turn towards 100% renewables; we the undersigned demand that all state, local, and federal agencies reject any applications or permits for this project. We further demand full legislative hearings on this project to address the many...

Secretary Jewell: Don't Lift The Hunting Ban For Louisiana Black Bears

Dear Secretary Jewell: While the increase in the Louisiana Black Bear population is encouraging, the species has still not recovered to a point where removing it from the Endangered Species List is warranted. Such a drastic action would result in lifting the 30 year hunting ban that has allowed this iconic species to recover from the brink of extinction. I urge you to reconsider removing the Louisiana Black Bear from the Endangered Species List and to prohibit any proposed hunting program.

Take the Earth Day 50 Challenge!

We’re destroying our oceans, forests and climate -- but we can’t afford to. In order to save life on earth, we’re calling on you to meet us at Earth Day Texas and develop a plan to: ~ Stop pollution, and protect critical fisheries. ~ Stop deforestation, start systemic reforestation, and shift to climate-positive agriculture. ~ Support/implement a price on carbon and build market demand for renewables and efficiency.

Stop Commercializing Our Clean Drinking Water Reservoirs

What are your priorities? Stop private profiteers from commercializing our clean drinking water reservoirs. Stop rewarding those linked to blatant dumping and disregard environmental law with Marina permits. Take private corporate marina's and gasoline storage out of our by deed no commercial neighborhoods and off of our central Texas drinking water reservoirs where they do not belong.

Stop the Algonquin Pipeline Expansion!

As the FERC will not make our health and safety a priority, we pledge to protect the beautiful waterways in the place that we call home. We pledge to protect our strong communities. We pledge to protect the land. We pledge to stand together in opposition to the proposed Algonquin Pipeline Expansion Project, that would increase demand for fracking in the shalefields of Pennsylvania as well as impact the land, the water, and the air in our communities for generations to come.

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.

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...

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.

One Mile Minimum! Keep Oil & Gas Operations Away from Our Schools!

There is no evidence that fracking and supporting infrastructure can operate without risks to human health. Yet there is a growing body of peer-reviewed science that provides significant evidence of the public health risks of shale oil and gas development. There is also no scientifically definitive setback distance that would prevent health and safety impacts from oil and gas infrastructure. Given the accidents like explosions and fires that have occurred, and documented water and air pollution from oil and gas infrastructure, policy-makers should exercise the utmost precaution when making decisions that could impact children and other vulnerable populations. Children are...

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!
