California is suffering a severe drought that's forcing citizens to cut their water use. So why would the state allow hydraulic fracturing that consumes & contaminates massive amounts of water? Over 200,000 Californians are calling for a ban on fracking!

CO2 emissions still dominate the total radiative forcing of climate change, leading methane CH4, nitrous oxide NO2 and combined CFC release into Earth's upper atmosphere. Including an alarming report of an incredible 29% increase since 1990. See graphs...
Cows Holding Breath Over New Methane Model

Taxpayers want government to enforce regulations and create rules to limit excess and greed in banking, insurance, housing, and on Wall Street. Let's not forget to regulate industrial agriculture. It is one of our most polluting and dangerous industries.

The Environmental Protection Agency is preparing to issue its findings on climate change. Focusing on the role automobiles play in producing greenhouse gases, the agency, however, ignores the fact that animal agriculture is one of the biggest culprits!
