Keep The Verde River open


There are very few areas near metro Phoenix where residents can spend time by a flowing river. Arizona is HOT during the summer and it is difficult to find cooler outdoor activities.

Spending time barbequing or camping in your own private spot by the river provides a chance to get outdoors without suffering from the tremendous heat. The lower Verde River runs south from the Bartlett Dam and joins the Salt River. The only part of...

Stop the stupid advertisements for helping Haiti


Maybe someone can help explain this to me... There are media groups SPENDING money that has been donated to help Haiti earthquake victims (and we're talking millions of dollars) to advertise fund donations for Haiti.

Urge Congress to Permanently Protect the Arctic Refuge!


The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is home to caribou, snow fox and millions of migratory birds. It is also the most important onshore denning habitat for America's vanishing polar bears.

But this natural treasure is constantly under siege. Time and time again, the oil industry and their allies in Congress have sought to open this special place to harmful new drilling, threatening all of the wildlife that depend on it for...

We Don't Need More Dirty Coal!


Coal-fired power plants are the largest source of global warming pollution in the United States-yet right now, our country is poised to increase these emissions by building many new dirty coal plants.

Virtually all of these proposed plants lack carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology, which aims to capture a plant's global warming-causing carbon emissions and store it underground. Building more plants without CCS would lock...

Stop Overusing Antibiotics on Healthy Farm Animals


Resistance to antibiotics is a public health crisis on the rise. These crucial drugs should only be used when necessary but 70 percent of antibiotics used in the United States are given to healthy chickens, pigs and cattle to increase weight gain or to prevent illnesses.

Free and clean production now!


Clean production is needed now! So many companies have been moving to China just to avoid production costs in producing clean products that it is overwhelming! The environmental hazard protection in China is devastatingly lower than in the United States which makes it cheaper and easier for companies to manufacture products. However with every teaspoon of spilled oil, or little bit of pollution added to the air our world dies a little.
