    The Results are in: LCVEF is Granted $74,299 from CREDO

    Last month, CREDO, a business that donates a portion of their mobile, long distance, and credit card revenues to progressive nonprofits, selected the League of Conservation Voters Education Fund (LCVEF) as one of three nonprofits to receive a donation at the end of July. Compellingly, the size of CREDO’s donation depended on the number of votes LCVEF tallied in the month-long poll of CREDO members. As it turns out, LCVEF received a whole ...More

    Underhanded Tactics? That’s Business-as-Usual for the U.S. Chamber

    Recently, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce took a brief timeout from their efforts to kill the EPA’s Clean Power Plan to brag. They gloated about a Denver CBS affiliate’s piece regarding their since-debunked study warning that the EPA proposal would lead to economic catastrophe. This is just the latest example of how the U.S. Chamber has engaged in underhanded tactics in their efforts to kill the EPA’s Clean Power Plan and continues to ...More

    National Monuments as Engines of Economic Growth

    A monument with a name that initially evokes fear from those unfamiliar with it, Devils Tower is a striking geologic structure that rises 1,267 feet above the surrounding terrain in Crook Country, Wyoming. Those who are captivated by its imposing structure or who are intrigued by its name – which stuck because its original name was lost in translation – soon learn that it served as a sacred site for the Lakota and other Native ...More

    The Land and Water Conservation Fund Turns 50

    This week marks the 50th anniversary of the Land and Water Conservation Fund’s (LWCF) passage by the House of Representatives. This fund was designed to guarantee the protection and conservation of many of America’s natural treasures, and its existence allows all Americans greater access to public lands, waterways and open spaces.

    The U.S. Chamber's Long History of Extreme Opposition to Environmental Safeguards

    A major part of President Obama’s Climate Action Plan is the reduction of carbon pollution from power plants – the largest domestic source of climate pollution. As the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) prepared to release its Clean Power Plan proposal that would achieve this goal, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce came out swinging.

    The House Pushes Anti-Environment Spending Bill

    On Tuesday, the House Committee on Appropriations marked up the Interior and Environment Appropriations bill for fiscal year 2015. While the committee’s primary responsibility was designating funding levels for agencies and activities relating to the Department of the Interior and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), it quickly devolved into a forum for the conservative fringe to express their disdain for the EPA and climate change science.

    The proposed bill will cut funding for the ...More

    Climate Deniers Taking a Page Out of Big Tobacco Playbook

    In a May 11 interview with ABC, Florida Senator and possible 2016 GOP Presidential candidate Marco Rubio stated the following: “I do not believe that human activity is causing these dramatic changes to our climate the way these scientists are portraying it… and I do not believe that the laws that they propose to pass will do anything about it.”

    The scariest part of Rubio’s comments is in the phrase “these scientists.” “These scientists” derides ...More
