Fracking Our Farms: A Tale of Five Farming Families
Their names are Carol, Steve & Jackie, Susan, Marilyn & Robert, and Christine. They share a bond. Two bonds, actually: They all own, or owned, farms. And those farms, along with their own health and the health of their farm animals, have all been ruined by fracking. More than 600,000 fracking wells and waste injection sites have popped up all over the country, according to ProPublica. The oil and gas industry, along with federal regulators, would have you believe that injecting trillions of gallons of toxic liquid deep into the earth is harmless. Tell that to Jacki Schilke of North Dakota, who lost two dogs, five cows, chickens – and her health – after 32 oil and gas wells sprouted up within three miles of her ranch. Or Christine Moore, a horse rescuer in Ohio who sold her farm after a well went up five miles from her farm, creating an oily film on her water and making her too sick to care for her horses. You’ve heard it before. No farms, no food. As one farmer said, “If they frack all the farms, there isn’t going to be any organic.” Read the essay

National Forest, Rare Salamander Threatened by ORV Destruction
New Mexico's Santa Fe National Forest has issued a decision that would leave a spider web of more than 2,400 miles of roads open, exposing wildlife to the continued damage of excessive motorized use of public lands, including by ORVs -- even though the U.S. Forest Service can afford to maintain only 10 percent of roads approved in the plan.
The decision would allow roads to continue to devastate habitat for species like the Jemez mountain salamander, a small, insect-eating amphibian that spends much of its life underground and is threatened by not only road building but also logging, climate change and fire suppression.
The Center for Biological Diversity and allies petitioned the Forest Service to close the roads in this area in 2009 to protect the salamander. About 3,500 comments from the public -- including you Center supporters -- opposed the road-opening decision.

Recently, the WWF has been widely criticized and accused of greenwashing, corruption and vague objectives. The WWF must take its responsibility as the world's largest lobby for nature seriously. That's why we demand fundamental reforms including higher transparency with regard to use of donated money, eco-labelling and negotiations, dismissal of personnel opposing the WWF's basic principles (such as Juan Carlos who is still honorary president of the WWF) and responsible use of (private) donations for projects that benefit the environment, the wildlife and the local people rather than corporations. We will turn to those responsible as soon as we have 1,000 signatures. Therefore, we are grateful for any support: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/345/718/694/for-real-environmental-care-reform-the-wwf/ Please also share (f.e. on facebook). The sooner we reach our goal, the sooner we can take action!

Will post petitions here for this group,that are for the earth,eco,enviroment,ect.....It's Time to Protect Our Wild Places
What do the awe-inspiring wonder of the Grand Canyon, the ancient beauty of California's Big Sequoia forests, and the smoldering giant Mount St. Helens all have in common?
These national treasures were all permanently protected as national monuments by a sitting President, and that’s why we are able to enjoy them without fear that they will be ruined by mining, drilling or clear-cutting.
President Obama has already taken steps in the right direction by making Forts Monroe and Ord national monuments -- but there's more to do.
The President can establish his own legacy by making some of our special places national monuments -- starting with a piece of the California Coast, Fort Ord. The site of a former army post, it's one of the last wild places on the stunning Monterey Peninsula: home to mountain lions, golden eagles and red-tailed hawks and prized for hiking and cycling.
Tell President Obama -- now is the time for him to establish his Presidential legacy by naming some of our most special wild places as national monuments, starting with Fort Ord on the California Coast.
