Making History: Paris Climate Agreement Signed on Earth Day

Apr 22, 2016

Last month, we urged our supporters to sign a petition asking President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry to sign the Paris climate agreement on behalf of the United States. Great news: John Kerry and other world leaders from nearly 170 countries signed the agreement at the United Nations today in honor of Earth Day.

Thanks to CLCV supporters and climate activists around the world, the momentum of climate action that started in Paris last year continues—appropriately—on Earth Day! Read More >

Protect Gray Wolves: Time Is Running Out!

Dec 23, 2015

Six years ago in the Oregon wilderness, a gray wolf pup was born into the Imnaha pack. By the age of 2, he’d grown from a pup into a wolf weighing nearly 90 pounds – that’s when he first met the biologists who named him “OR-7” and started tracking his movements. Just a few months later, OR-7 left the Imnaha pack and set out alone on an epic journey over hundreds of miles – through deep forests and mountain passes; crossing barren desert and gushing rivers; skirting small towns and dodging highway traffic – pushing further and further south.

New Fracking Study Confirms Risks to Water, Wildlife, and Communities

Jul 23, 2015

The recent release of an independent, state-funded study on fracking shows that our long-standing concerns about the risks are justified. This latest revelation comes on the heels of months of scandal involving oil companies and the state agencies that are supposed to regulate them but, by their own admission, have failed to protect Californians' health and safety.

Californians have heard a lot about fracking over the past few years. Our concerns have only grown into outrage as more evidence of its risks to our communities, our water, our health and safety has come to light. Read More >
