    Ed Schultz Takes a Stand Against Keystone XL

    Although he initially supported the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, MSNBC host Ed Schultz has spent the past several weeks talking to climate change experts and landowners in Nebraska about what it would mean for our country. He delighted opponents of the dangerous pipeline this week when he announced that he has changed his mind, and now believes that it should not be approved.

    A Blatant Attack on the EPA

    Next week, the House will likely take up the so-called Electricity Security and Affordability Act, which aims to block the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ability to place commonsense limits on carbon pollution from power plants. This is yet another sweeping attack on the environment from the radial leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives. It would also be a big win for corporate polluters and a loss for the American people by preventing President Obama ...More

    2013 National Environmental Scorecard

    The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) today released our 2013 National Environmental Scorecard, which allows you to see how your members of Congress voted on the year’s key environmental issues. There is a shocking disconnect between the results of the Scorecard and the impacts of climate change that we are seeing right outside our windows—including stronger storms, more intense wildfires and longer droughts.

    While President Obama was making significant progress on tackling the climate crisis, ...More

    Representing Latino Voices to the EPA

    Yesterday, I had the opportunity to testify at the Environmental Protection Agency’s public hearing on their proposed regulations on carbon pollution for new power plants. This is a hugely important step forward in the fight against climate change and protecting our health. I, along with other LCV staff and several colleagues in the GreenLatinos coalition, testified in support of the rules. I was proud to represent the Latino LCV members I work with and raise ...More

    Congressional Allies: Reject Keystone XL Pipeline

    The State Department released the final environmental impact statement on the dangerous Keystone XL tar sands pipeline last week. We know that the Keystone XL pipeline would endanger water supplies, destroy forests, and worsen climate change at an intolerable rate. It’s clear that this pipeline is not in our national interest and must be rejected.

    The FEIS was just one step in a long process, and many of our biggest allies in Congress took ...More
