Take Action: Take Action: Stop the Giveaway to the Coal Industry -- Read more. Stop the Giveaway to the Coal Industry

A new threat to strong coal ash safeguards, the Coal Ash Recycling and Oversight Act of 2012 (S. 3512), has been introduced in the Senate. This bill sets up weak safeguards that only protect polluter profits. It leaves communities living with coal ash pollution like arsenic, selenium, and lead. If the bill passes, citizens will have nowhere to turn if their state cares more about catering to the coal industry than about protecting families.

Tell your senators to support real coal ash protections and oppose S. 3512.

On Saturday, July 28, over 5,000 people marched through the streets of Washington, D.C. in the first-ever rally against fracking in our nation's capital. Let's keep the pressure on the natural gas industry, which wants to drill whenever and wherever and not be held accountable for the chemicals it injects into our ground water. The industry is lobbying hard to make sure the use of diesel -- a known carcinogen -- is still allowed in fracking fluids.

Send a letter to Congress telling them that diesel in our drinking water should never be allowed.

Grassroots Activism: Ohioans Sent the Bill for Coal -- read more. Grassroots Activism: Ohioans Sent the Bill for Coal

The Cleveland Beyond Coal team recently held an event where they symbolically attempted to mail an oversized "invoice" to the offices of FirstEnergy for costs incurred by customers because the utility has failed to invest in energy efficiency. Health costs were added to the invoice as well.

The bill was for more than $700 million... and it didn't fit in the mailbox.
