Renewable Energy by 2020!

More Renewable Energy by 2020! Make fossil fuels a thing of the past, not the future. Attack laws that put nature/Earth behind first priority. Climate Change is a much greater issue than a Wall. In order to take action on climate change and have a goal of more renewable energy by 2020, WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT to convince the public, local government, and corporations to at least aknowledge climate change and try to take action, even if the President or Congress is too stubborn to do anything. The ice caps are melting at an unprecedented rate, animal endangered list is high, and weather is more extreme, these are all FACTS. Without your support, our world will become a lot worse, faster, endangering future generations. IS THIS ISSUE GREATER THAN A WALL AROUND THE US BORDER?? I THINK SO. (Of course the government has to be reopened before much change can start) But this petition is a one of the starts. - Pierce Soderquist Hurry, the ice caps are melting fast! #climatechangeisafact PLEASE CLICK THE LINK TOO: Climate Change Ice Caps

No more kids with cancer: clean up the Santa Susana Field Lab

When my daughter Grace Ellen was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer, at age four, I thought that our family had the worst, most devastating luck. But after spending months in the hospital with her, we learned that she was one of over 50 children who may have been poisoned by one of the worst nuclear meltdowns in America. Sign to demand that incoming governor Gavin Newsom push the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) to completely clean the Santa Susana Field Lab and prevent any more children from getting cancer. Grace Ellen’s form of cancer was incredibly aggressive. At age four she was put on several clinical trials, had ten times the normal amount of chemotherapy, and spent two years fighting her cancer. A year and a half later her cancer came back. She’s been addicted to morphine, unable to eat or drink, and had to fight for her life in the hospital isolation floor. Her childhood was stolen from her, and it haunts me to know her cancer might have been avoidable. She, like the other 50 children, grew up within 20 miles the Santa Susana Field Lab, land which was developed in the 1940s to conduct nuclear research. In 1959 an uncontained partial meltdown of a sodium reactor caused such a devastating radiation leak that many consider it to be the worst nuclear disaster in U.S. history – and it was completely covered up for years. Our community has up to 60% higher cancer rates, 20% higher invasive breast cancer rates, we have the reports to prove it. It is the Department of Toxic Substance Control’s job to clean up this mess. They know our children are sick and dying, but they aren’t taking any meaningful action against those who own the land – Boeing, NASA and the DOE. I will protect my children even if I have to tear down mountains with my bare hands – and I am one of many parents fighting for our kids. To win this, we need our future governor to push the corrupt Department of Toxic Substances to clean up this disaster once and for all. Will you join us?

Petition to Environmental Protection Agency

Clean water is now at risk: Tell the EPA not to gut water protections

Right now, the Trump Administration is aiming to roll back America’s water protections, all the way back to the pre-George H.W. Bush era. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is putting forward a plan to slash clean water regulations that protect streams and wetlands from pesticide runoff and other waterway pollution. It will put thousands of American streams and wetlands at risk of pollution. These are the streams and wetlands that feed America’s drinking water. Tell the EPA that water protections need to stay where they are. This roll back would bring U.S. water regulations back 30-years, harming the environmental legacy of George H.W. Bush, who first pushed to protect America’s waterways from pollution. It will also roll back an Obama-era policy that expanded on H.W. Bush’s waterway protections and the Clean Water Act. If made law, this policy would allow for more pesticide runoff from agribusiness, and give developers the ability to bulldoze over vital wetlands. Allowing industries to pollute and destroy waterways would be devastating for fish and wildlife, and put threatened species at risk. Waterway pollution gets into our drinking water, harms riverbeds and wetlands, and diminishes the ability of vital mangrove and wetland networks to protect coastal areas from flooding and storms. Tell the EPA to keep water protections exactly where they are. It doesn’t help that the people leading this effort are skeptical about the impacts of pollution on the health of Americans. Over the last two years, the EPA has spearheaded efforts to roll back clean air and clean water protections that will only benefit polluters. Demand the EPA stand up for Americans, not monied interests - stop plans to cut waterway protections.
