Stop Shell from drilling for oil in the Arctic!

President Obama: please withdraw your support for offshore Arctic drilling. If Shell starts drilling for oil in the Alaskan Arctic, your own scientists tell us there's a 75% chance of one or more major spills. I ask that you deny Shell the necessary permits and permissions it needs to drill in 2015.

Governor Scott: banning the words "climate change" is not OK.

Banning the words "climate change" in the Florida state government is unacceptable. Florida is vulnerable to many of the impacts of climate change - such as extreme weather patterns and sea level rise. Florida's leaders should take every possible measure to stop global climate change in its tracks.

Stand with the Lummi Nation against Coal Exports!

I am writing to support the recent request from the Lummi Nation to deny the Army Corps of Engineers permit for the Gateway Pacific Terminal at Cherry Point. The coal export facility cannot be built without having major adverse impacts upon the Lummi Nation's treaty rights, fisheries, and way of life. Additionally, our health, waterways, and children's future are threatened by North America's largest proposed coal export terminal. I believe that our government should always keep its word: we promised the Lummi and other tribes that we would protect their fishing rights, and we cannot break that promise. Because these...

Protect Sharks and Ensure Your Tuna Is Legal and Sustainable

Millions of sharks are killed by tuna vessels every year—as bycatch or from illegal shark finning practices. Major companies like Bumble Bee have a responsibility to ensure that their products do not come with the hidden cost of millions of dead sharks. We both know that policies banning shark finning, including the guidelines of the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF), are not enough. Unless your company can publicly prove that all aspects of your supply chain, including the independent vessels that you buy fish from are not finning sharks, those guidelines become meaningless. I am requesting that Bumble Bee take...

Barack Hussein Obama II....Veganism needs to be a protected class.

Currently here in the U.S., veganism is NOT protected. So if you end up in jail, or a mental hospital, or hospital, or if you have children in school or college, their RIGHT to be vegan is not protected. Even though we come from every religion, and atheism, we all believe in the fact that ALL EARTHLINGS DESERVE TO LIVE! So I am starting this petition to try and make change...I am contacting various congressmen/women and senators who will support this and try to push it forward.....Join me, because we deserve the same rights as everyone else!

Man-Made Massive Die Off of Sea Mammals

Authorization of the use of sonic cannons along the Eastern Seaboard, from Florida to Maine, for oil and gas exploration.This is the first time in decades that the area would be opened. The cannons shoot sound waves and allow companies to locate oil and gas deposits. Sadly, these sound waves are 100 times louder than a jet engine and could harm or kill 138,000 sea mammals such as dolphins, turtles and whales. It is time to stand up to protect our oceans and our environment. Our children are counting on us. As are the sea mammals.

Stop nuclear power station development in Gloucestershire

Horizon Nuclear Power, the company planning to build a new nuclear power station in South Gloucestershire, has agreed contracts with four major firms to provide engineering and other technical services. Despite what the nuclear industry tells us, building enough nuclear power stations to make a meaningful reduction in greenhouse gas emissions is not economical(!) and creates tens of thousands of tons of lethal high-level radioactive waste, contributing to further proliferation of nuclear weapons materials, and results in a Chernobyl-scale accident once every decade. Perhaps most significantly, it will squander the resources necessary to implement meaningful climate change solutions. Beautiful England...

Stop Shell from drilling in the Arctic!

Polar bears drowning in oil. Whales inhaling toxic oil fumes. Threatened eiders potentially decimated, and distinct populations of salmon obliterated. These are just some of the impacts the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) predicts would be the result of a large oil spill in the Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for Lease Sale 193. According to your analysis, Mr. Cruikshank, there's a three out of four chance of a spill if you allow drilling in the Chukchi Sea, north of Alaska. This is an unacceptable risk. In April 2014, the National Academy of Science's National Research Council made it...

Investors in Herakles Farms: Stop Funding Destruction in Africa

The Herakles Farms palm oil project in Cameroon is the wrong project in the wrong place. If it is not stopped, it will cause widespread social and environmental damage in an area of great biodiversity sandwiched between protected areas and national parks. It will destroy natural forests and take away the livelihoods of communities reliant on those forests.

Please allow pit bulls in Miami-Dade County, FL!

This ban on pit bulls in Miami-Dade is detrimental to their survival rates in animal shelters. Statistically, bully breeds are the most often euthanized dog in America and because they are banned in Miami-Dade County, most of them are confiscated and then sent to the Miami-Dade County Animal Services. By lifting this ban, you can give them a chance to remain with their responsible, loving owners and prevent an unnecessary death because of the large number of pit bulls in shelters.

A value change

Ban the general application of pesticides from lawn-care and lawn-care products to force a value change from one of uniform but toxic emerald green to a healthier, more complex assortment of grasses and ground-cover. Contrary to what one might think, the uniform look was created by chemical companies to sell product and not by the general public looking for easier lawn maintenance. Ban pesticide use by towns along roadways, parks and around public buildings.

Recycle containers next to bottle machines

People who bring their bottles to recycle and who collect bottles to get the refund are discarding the rejected bottles back into the regular garbage cans. Can grocery stores supply recycle bins next to the bottle machines?

New Jersey: Reduce the Consumption of Plastic Bags

Every day thousands of plastic bags are used for just 5 minutes, then are thrown away forever. Five minutes of use for 1,000 years for that same plastic bag to decompose. If we pay for them, we will realize how many we are wasting. We will make efforts to reduce our consumption.
