Shell Would Let the World Burn to Drill in the Arctic  This is a great (and short) video done by +Greenpeace International.  Check it out--and please share!  

#oilandgas   #environment   #drilling  
Incredibly proud to be able to make a difference by working with Greenpeace on their #StopShell #SaveTheArctic campaign which went live this morning.

Their video below, which I would urge you to look at, can and will make a difference.  Their last campaign did (it successful ended Lego’s partnership with Shell and had 7 million views).

Please please take literally 1 minute 40 seconds out of your day and watch and share this video. 

I know I often ask for shares and likes, but this isn’t for me.  It’s for you, your siblings, your children and their children. We really can make a difference and stop Shell from mining for oil in the Arctic.  It is one of the most stunning places on earth and has an amazing ecosystem which is fundamental to controlling climate warming.

Thank you.  Together we really can make a difference.  Let’s leverage the power of social media to do good ☺

Denton, Texas, banned fracking last year – then the frackers fought back

"The north Texas city of Denton became a beacon for the anti-fracking movement when residents voted to prohibit the practice inside city limits. But victory was fleeting. The oil and gas industry was alarmed by the grassroots insurgency and the state’s Republican politicians struck back with a flurry of measures aimed at asserting the primacy of state control over local regulations."

State’s Republican politicians counter anti-fracking insurgency by banning the ban, as critics say ‘they’ve just handed the golden ticket to oil and gas’

Congress manufactures doubt and denial in climate change hearing

"US Congress periodically holds hearings on issues related to climate change. Because the subject has become a partisan one in America, they generally follow a predictable pattern – Democrats invite science and policy expert witnesses who agree with the expert consensus on human-caused global warming and the need to address it, and Republicans invite witnesses who disagree."

Stop Congress from Gutting the Endangered Species Act! Sign here....only takes a second. From CREDO: "Just last week, the U.S. Senate considered eight bills that would modify the Endangered Species Act, most of which aim to saddle resource-strapped federal wildlife agencies with burdensome new hurdles and requirements."
Rand Paul's bill would gut and effectively kill the Endangered Species Act, an immensely successful and popular law that is the cornerstone of American wildlife conservation. Tell Congress to reject this horrible bill.
