START A PETITION 27,000,000 members: the world's largest community for good
Jul 1, 2011
Sharing information is a powerful tool — one of the most powerful tools for any campaign to have — a tool that I will keep using with the Worldwide Campaign to Save the Grand Canyon even now as public comments to the U.S. Department of the Interior and Bureau of Land Management have officially closed.

As many may already know, there was a victory on June 20, 2011 for the cessation of uranium mining in the Grand Canyon Region. Secretary of the DOI, Ken Salazar, extended the current moratorium an additional 6 months to complete studies and impose a new 20-year moratorium in place.

I've been promoting petitions sponsored by SEN4Earth, Sierra Club,, CREDO and others urging everyone to take action to save this World Heritage listed area since August of last year. I personally started 2 petitions on behalf of for the cause, one here on Care2 (700+ signatures) and one on (51,000+ signatures).

There is still much work to be done to ensure that the DOI puts the 20 year moratorium in place at the end of this year. Thank the DOI if you feel so inclined on editor Jess Leber's petition at

I am holding open my petition on so that if you haven't yet signed it already and would like to, you are still able to. You can find it here:

Thank you all for supporting this campaign.

Sharing with everyone is what this site is about ~ these words couldn't be truer in my heart if I had penned them myself... our dear friend Gregory Hilbert has shared this message, and the links - I pray you all share them and take the action if you agree with the sentiments of so many already...

(original message from Gregory H.)

Dandelion is one of Care2's most giving members, and she needs your support for the sake of others including her own son NOW!

Please show your support, sign the worldwide petition if you agree with it, and if you don't agree, please delete me from your friend list!

Comment From Dandelion on her post:

Let's make every day a step closer to being independence day.

Join us by pledging YOUR dedication to this Call to Action for Independence Day for Earth for a Sustainable Future by signing our petition here.

Independence Day for Earth

When I had posted an article I saw on to the Care2 News Network, it was with the intention to share the message of the Brazilian Rainforest and it’s looming destruction. I thought about how I would share this message with my friends, and decided what better way than to share a wish of freedom and independence for all on the celebration of the US 4th of July holiday. The wheels were set in motion, my words in that original message, as they do now, flowed from my heart... read the full article here

Action Request: Petition
Location: United States


We the undersigned hereby petition Rupert Murdoch and News Corp to, at minimum, require Fox News and all its news outlets to regularly broadcast factual climate change reports representing the consensus of scientific thinking and findings.

The well-being of our children and all life on earth are at grave risk.

You, Mr. Murdoch, along with News Corp, hold within your grasp the power to educate and mobilize humanity towards a solution of this serious threat.  Flex this power and the world will recognize you as an important and influential contributor for posterity.

We commend your recognition and public admission of the reality of the climate change crisis, Global Warming, and the dire threat it represents to all mankind. Your commitment Mr. Murdoch and that of News Corp to achieve a neutral carbon footprint in the very near term is an important step forward for News Corp.

While you may be reluctant to impose editorial decision-making on your news outlets, we think it irresponsible corporate behavior to permit chronic pandering to ignorance on Fox News and their other news outlets by those claiming Global Warming is "a hoax" and "snake-oil" science; and further, that nothing of consequence is being done to offset that irresponsibility.

We respectfully demand, Mr. Murdoch, the disclosure of truthful reporting and factual information representing the consensus of the scientific findings on Global Warming and the climate crisis we, all of humanity, are facing.

Thank you for taking the time to read and accept this petition and challenge for the sake of all humanity.

Hello Friends,

As you may know already, co-Founder Gregory Hilbert and myself are working hard at bringing you information on Recently, we had a poll about the Climate & Energy - the results are in!

We feel this is especially timely because of the Climate-Energy bill debate and the gulf oil spill. And many of you are in the poll!

Notes, comments, shares and relays are all welcome.

Care2 Users Drive SEN Climate & Energy Poll, See the Results!
Many Care2 readers responded to SEN's April article "Drill Oil and the USA & World to Hell? Say What YOU Demand!". And "say" you did! See the results thru April 28 that SEN will report to govts, take the poll to be included in a future update...

Best to all!

ABC's Kimmel Joins Palin Alaska Condemnation
ABC's Kimmel Joins Palin Alaska Condemnation

Good news! Care2 and Defenders of Wildlife petitioners and SEN's Condemnation Boycott gained a media boost from ABC's Kimmel and SEN's link-up with Facebook group. Boycott Unilever's Dove soap and Degree deodorant!

Our campaign against "Sarah Palin's Alaska" on Discovery's TLC gained momentum over the weekend as the Defenders of Wildlife petition soared past 170,000. Care2 petition counts climbed, Jimmy Kimmel blasted Palin's Alaska on ABC, and SEN gained link-up with a boycott-ready Facebook group. Go to the site to see the video, insure you've signed all petitions including Care2 (there's a link to all) and SEN's condemnation boycott. The boycott commences with Unilever's Dove soap and Degree deodorant as a warning  shot accross the bow of Discovery advertisers.


Please note the article, comment if you wish, relay to friends.

Palin's Alaska is galvanizing many to action. By joining forces and applying relentless pressure over a sustained period on this symbolic issue, those who love animals and wildlife, those deeply concerned about the environment and global warming, those who want to fight corporate greed, those alarmed by political leaders and media pandering to ignorance and hate, all can gain a more powerful voice on the American scene and worldwide. We must win this symbolic battle if it takes us all of 2010 and into 2011!  -- Gregory

If you own a cat, please take a look at this very good website which lists essential oils which can prove fatal to them. If you as a for instance use essential oils on your face at night, then consider that your cat may then sleep on your pillow and get the oils on their fur etc..

Please also forward to any cat owner friends
