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.
Investors are pulling out, it's time for the EPA to take decisive action!
Anglo American, the major backer of the Pebble Mine proposal, withdraw its support recently. In so doing, Anglo made good on its promise not to mine if there were local community objections. Thank you Anglo American!
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.
Exxon spilled 84,000 gallons of crude oil in Arkansas and a legal loophole will let them get away with it
Tell your Representatives and the President to close the loophole and prevent more spills by stopping the Keystone XL pipeline!
The whole nation is watching how New York handles fracking and public health
Let Governor Cuomo know we're watching. Urge him to release the public health review and allow public comment. Tell him he needs to keep his promise to allow the science to determine whether New York moves forward with fracking.
Over 50 jewelry retailers have already signed the Bristol Bay Protection Pledge
Bristol Bay communities are asking all jewelers to support their efforts to protect Bristol Bay, their source of sustenance and livelihood. Take a minute to thank them for their support!
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.
