"he League of Conservation Voters and the political arm of the Natural Resources Defense Council said today they’re starting LeadingGreen to raise funds for federal candidates and identify more big donors for broader lobbying efforts. The fundraising is similar to Emily’s List, the nation’s largest political action committee, which attracts donations and then bundles cash donations to the candidates it endorses."
Two of the nation’s largest environmental groups are combining forces to raise $5 million for the 2014 election to blunt better-financed efforts by industry groups fighting tougher climate-change laws.

"In a letter to Interior Inspector General Mary Kendall, Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva (D) on Wednesday called for an investigation into the American Legislative Exchange Council’s “aggressive effort” to change state laws regarding public land use. The group’s work constitutes unregistered lobbying, he argues.

“Despite actively pressing state lawmakers on a range of issues, ALEC has failed for decades to register as a lobbying organization in states where it has promoted changes to state laws,” Grijalva writes.

"In the letter, Grijalva also requests an investigation into how ALEC’s efforts have affected department employees. ALEC’s position, he argues, is consistent with those of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, whose decades-long fight resulted in a weekend showdown between government officials and anti-government militia groups."
Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva seeks an Interior Department investigation into the conservative group's practices.

"Former president Jimmy Carter has joined a group of Nobel laureates who oppose construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, warning President Obama and Secretary of State John F. Kerry, “You stand on the brink of making a choice that will define your legacy on one of the greatest challenges humanity has ever faced – climate change."

"By announcing his opposition, Carter becomes the first former president to come out against the controversial project. Two years ago former president George W. Bush called the proposal "a no-brainer," and that same year former president Bill Clinton said that the revised route of the pipeline avoided Nebraska's Sandhills region, ""So, I think we should embrace it and develop a stakeholder-driven system of high standards for doing the work modeled on what was done with auto mileage agreement.""

It sucks that we live in an oligarchy and we need a billionaire plutocrat like Michael R. Bloomberg to counter the gun lobby and get the attention of politicians in Washington (since a new scientific study shows the average citizen has absolutely zero influence on legislation) but I'm still glad his new $50 million organization Everytown for Gun Safety is fighting gun violence and taking on the National Rifle Association.
Michael R. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City, said that gun control advocates had to learn from the National Rifle Association and punish those politicians who fail to support their agenda.

North Dakota recently discovered piles of garbage bags containing radioactive waste dumped by oil drillers in abandoned buildings. Now, the state is trying to catch up to an oil industry that produces an estimated 27 tons of radioactive debris from wells daily.
