Burning Our Future, Sneaky Frackers, and More!


Fossil Fuel Follies:

OO New – And Worrisome – Contaminants Emerge
From Oil And Gas Wells
– two new hazardous fracking waste chemicals – ammonium and iodide – are pouring into Pennsylvania and West Virginia waterways, a new study shows.

OO Who Needs Lobbyists?
Big Energy Spends Big Ad Bucks To Win American Minds

OO Fracking Plays Dirty – fracking sand companies in Wisconsin are asking to be annexed to cities so country regulations don’t stop their growth.


OO Burning Oil : 2.7 Million Gallons A Minute and Rising – Global oil consumption has never been higher and is rising.

OO Canada: 230,000 People With No Drinking Water After Diesel Spill

Biomass burning emits greenhouse gases, and is how America is legally burning its carbon-storing forests: turning them into wood pellets and exporting them to European fireplaces.

OO EPA Gives Green Light to Biomass Pollution – a bad idea, made worse when people start defining carbon-storing forests as “biomass.” Burning biomass emits greenhouse gases.

Even more emissions occur when OO Biomass Industry Plays With Fire and gets burned.

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here. This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is in 2016!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
