Please tell Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, who oversees the Forest Service, that the agency must stand firm.
The US Forest Service is under intense pressure by the gas industry to abandon its proposal to prohibit horizontal drilling on more than one million acres on the George Washington National Forest.
Tell Congress fracking is not in our public interest
Not satisfied with simply fracking for domestic use, politicians in Washington are tripping over themselves to frack our communities even more to ship fracked gas overseas.
Congress is trying to strip the EPA of some of its Clean Water Act authority.
Tell Congress to say NO to the Regulatory Fairness Act of 2014 and protect clean water.
States like Texas and Oklahoma where earthquakes used to be rare are shaking.
It's time to make the ground shake in the halls of power and call on our elected officials to stop the frackquakes!
Methane is worse for climate than CO2, it's time to take action!
Tell the Obama Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Department of Interior (DOI) to prevent wasteful methane leaks, and to protect clean air. Tell them to directly regulate methane.
Don't tarnish your love with dirty gold.
Take the pledge to say NO to dirty gold.
Canadian mining company Infinito Gold didn't like it when Costa Ricans voted against their plan to mine.
Now the company is suing in order to overturn the vote of the people, the ruling of the supreme court and the national ban on open-pit mines.
It's time for frackers to play by the rules.
The Frack Pack, five bills recently introduced in Congress, would finally force the oil and gas industry to follow many of the same environmental laws as other industries and help protect our clean air and clean water.
President Obama: lead us to a renewable energy future!
Increased oil and gas development is part of the climate change problem, not the solution.
We need answers
Tell President Obama and Administrator McCarthy to uphold their responsibility to us, our health, and our drinking water and reopen the investigations into the dangers of fracking.
Because gold jewelry should mean *I love you*, not *I poisoned someone's drinking water*.
Gold jewelry demand accounts for over 80% of annual global gold mine production. So jewelers speaking out against dirty gold are essential to put a stop to irresponsible gold mining.
Urge Signet to pledge not to buy gold from the Pebble mine
Signet Jewelers, Kay & Jared Jewelers' parent company, is the world's largest jewelry retailer. Jewelry represents 80% of annual global mined gold production. Urge them not to buy gold from a mine that threatens the Bristol Bay salmon fishery.
