I understand, Val and thank you for checking if a new thread can be started.  I do a lot of work on Care2 on my kindle (tablet) and it just takes forever to reach the bottom to comment that I signed the petitions.  If not, I will still check for new petitions but may not comment if time doesn't permit.

End Oil Drilling in the Amazon Rainforest

Two uncontacted tribes call this range of the Yasuni National Park their home, where a variety of birds, amphibians, trees and reptiles also dwell. Unfortunately, other gas companies such as Shell have already drilled in other parts of the Amazon, but this pattern should not continue. Our planet is precious and the oil should remain in the ground. Sign this petition and tell President Correa once and for all that the Amazon Rainforest should be left alone.

Tell Staples "Too Soon to Buy From Asia Pulp and Paper!"

Asia Pulp and Paper (APP) is one of the largest, and most notorious, pulp and paper companies in the world. After destroying an area of tropical rainforests nearly the size of Massachusetts, APP announced a new commitment to clean up its act last year. Despite having many good elements, one year on, many of the company’s promises have yet to be implemented. Additionally, the company’s performance has yet to be independently verified.
That's why your voice is needed. Take a moment to send an email to Staples CEO Ron Sargent to tell him "Don't buy - verify." Make sure he knows that you're looking to Staples to live up to its commitments to the forests instead of taking APP's promises at face value.

Keep Tassie's forests protected

After a decades-long campaign, critical areas of Tasmania's spectacular ancient forests were officially protected with World Heritage status in June last year. For the first time ever, this was supported by the Tasmanian timber industry and unions.
World Heritage status is awarded by the international community to recognise the highest natural values on Earth.

Now the Abbott Government is seeking to have this protection stripped.

The forest can’t defend itself

Greenpeace campaigners Richard Brooks and Shane Moffatt revealed devastating logging practices in the Boreal Forest by Canada’s largest forestry company, Resolute Forest Products.

Now, in an apparent effort to silence them, Resolute is suing Richard, Shane and Greenpeace for $7 million. Stand with us to show Resolute they cannot intimidate and silence our campaigners with lawsuits.

By signing this pledge, you’ll join thousands who are standing up to help protect this critical habitat and our right to know what’s happening in Canada’s forests. Sign now and your name will be added to the Guardian Tree,which we are going to deliver in-person to Resolute CEO, Richard Garneau, as a symbol of our shared resolve to protect Canadian forests.

Protect Forests in Eastern Oregon

We must send a clear message to Senator Wyden that the interests of these logging companies should not outweigh the public good. We hold these forests in trust for future generations; therefore, we should seek to increase protections rather than allowing increased logging to adversely affect the environment. Please tell Senator Wyden to reconsider his federal forest plan.

Preserve Georgia's Trails

According to a new U.S. Forest Service report, the southern states are projected to lose 23 million acres of forest — the approximate size of South Carolina — over the next 50 years. In particular, forests in the Piedmont, which includes Georgia and the Carolinas, could decline by as much as 22 percent in coming years.
These alarming findings emphasized the importance of Environment Georgia’s work to push for a federal conservation fund called the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which could go to work purchasing and preserving forests along some our most special trails, including the Appalachian and Benton MacKaye trails.
The fund has been cut from a potential $900 million to $60 million by the House of Representatives. Now, we need Sens. Johnny Isakson and Saxby Chambliss to stand up for green space. Use the form below to email them today.

When natural habitats such as that of the mountain gorilla are destroyed, rainfall and weather patterns can be affected, areas can become more susceptible to flooding or drought, and huge amounts of carbon dioxide can be released into the atmosphere, accelerating the effects of climate change.

A recent report by Oxfam shows that corporations like Kellogg’s have acquired over 4 million hectares of land for sugar production. Activists say the purchases are undertaken without transparency they say much of this land belongs to indigenous peoples, and it often consists of pristine Rainforests.
Once the land is obtained by Kellogg’s they lock out local people and cut down the forests to turn it into farm land

All this so Kellogg’s can put sugar on our cereals! It’s time for Kellogg’s to stop these land grabs and operate in a transparent and ethic way.

Burning trees for electricity creates more carbon pollution than coal, gas and oil. It's a dirty process that destroys our forests.
Three companies--Enviva LP, Dominion Power, and Drax Group--lead the industry in cutting and burning forests for electricity. Virginia-based Dominion Power and UK-based Drax Group buy millions of tons of wood from our Southern forests for fuel. Enviva, the South’s largest wood pellet manufacturer, supplies them both—and plans to double production in the coming years.

The nation of India is rapidly clearing its old growth forests to make way for coal development. This, matched with explosive population growth, will quickly destroy the country�s natural ecosystems.

Since India is enormous both in landmass and population, its environmental collapse will surely affect the entire region, if not the world.
