Another for you to check out! The Environmental Protection Agency just issued a draft of precedent-setting
standards under the Clean Air Act to curb industrial carbon pollution from new
power plants. Power plants are the nation's largest polluter of carbon dioxide
emissions, which contribute to global warming.

Warmer temperatures intensify smog pollution and its health impacts on
Americans, including more asthma attacks in children and seniors. Over the past
year, the U.S. House of Representatives has passed many measures seeking to
restrict the ability of the Environmental Protection Agency to protect the
public health under the Clean Air Act, including the agency's ability to control
carbon pollution. The Obama administration deserves credit for standing up to
defend the Clean Air Act from these efforts and for moving forward with these
landmark standards.

It is vital that millions of Americans tell the administration to keep doing the
right thing.

Please, contact EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson today and urge the agency to
finalize strong standards to curb industrial carbon pollution!

Millions of acres of public land in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming are being considered for oil-shale and tar-sand development, the dirtiest energy in the world.

We need your help to tell the Bureau of Land Management to reject this outrageously destructive proposal.

Oil-shale and tar-sand development would consume vast amounts of Colorado River water, which is already running dry. It would destroy thousands of acres of habitat, threaten endemic plants with extinction and accelerate global warming with massive energy inputs and CO2 emissions. Between worsening global warming and the extinction crisis, it's hard to imagine a worse use of public land.

Take action today to tell the BLM to reject this absurd proposal, which flies in the face of sound fiscal, social and environmental policy.

Click here to find out more and take action.

Subject: Tell Public Utilities Commission on the verge of a big decision for solar - take action!

Dear Friend,

As the most anti-environmental congress in Washington maintains their relentless pursuit of dirty energy and dirty pollution, California is on the verge of a game-changing decision that could help nearly double the amount of customer-produced solar power in our state.

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) will vote next month on a plan that would fix a loophole which currently allows utilities to unfairly limit benefits to producers of solar energy in California, (a program called net metering.)

Many utilities are fighting back hard. But if the PUC hears from enough Californian's there's a very good chance they could move forward with this important plan which would be a boon to solar power in the golden state.

I just signed a petition to tell CPUC to move forward. Please take action now to support solar energy in California:

Dear Friend,

Tens of thousands of birds are dying in the Pacific Northwest. Please read the alert below from the National Audubon Society, and join me in taking action by sending an email to the Secretary of the Interior.

AUDUBON ACTION ALERT
More than 20,000 birds have already died in the Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge (located on the Oregon-California border) as water levels reach dangerously low levels. The Refuge is widely considered the most important habitat for migratory waterfowl in the Lower 48, and yet the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation has failed to provide adequate water to support the millions of birds arriving for spring migration. With more than two million birds forced to bunch together in the remaining wetlands, an outbreak of avian cholera has caused the massive die-off.

***Take Action***
Please send an email to Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar. Ask him to direct the Bureau to send more water to the Refuge to avert a major disaster for birds:

The Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge is a national treasure. It was the nation's first waterfowl refuge when it was established in 1908 by President Theodore Roosevelt. And its importance has never waned. Approximately 40 percent of the migratory waterfowl in the Pacific Flyway depend on this Refuge during spring and fall migrations. It hosts the largest concentration of wintering Bald Eagles south of Canada and harbors more than 80 species that are listed as sensitive, threatened or endangered.

***Take Action***
We need to demonstrate overwhelming public support for helping the millions of birds that depend on a healthy Klamath Basin. Please send your email today:

Who Should an Economy Serve?

The top one percent own half of all the world's assets. In stark contrast, the bottom fifty percent of the world owns less than one percent. According to the 2014 Global Wealth Report from Credit Suisse, global inequality has surged since the 2008 financial collapse. The report explains that while global wealth has more than doubled since the year 2000, the vast majority of overall growth has gone to those who were already wealthy.
