Josh Fox and Mark Ruffalo Invite You to Stop the Frack Attack

Stop the Frack Attack

By Robby Diesu

Bill McKibben of 350.org, Josh Fox of the documentary film Gasland and Mike Tidwell of Chesapeake Climate Action Network are just some of the names of the incredibly powerful speakers who will be joining us on July 28 in Washington, D.C. at Stop the Frack Attack, the nation's largest-ever anti-fracking rally. We will also hear from Dayne Pratzky, who is fighting fracking in Australia; Lori New Breast of Blackfeet Women Against Fracking; cancer survivor Laura Amos; Kari Matsko, who helped start the battle against fracking in Ohio and many more. For a full list of speakers, click here.

Something you might notice about our speakers is that they are mostly local people taking up the fight against fracking. From the beginning, Stop the Frack Attack has been led by our advisory committee—11 individuals who have put in countless hours to make sure this event reflects the movement on the ground. They chose the speakers because, to them, they are the ones who best represent the anti-fracking movement.

We also want to draw your attention to our newest video from Mark Ruffalo and Josh Fox, inviting you to Stop the Frack Attack. You might also notice that they hint at our next steps, making sure New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo makes the right decisions about fracking in his state.

Don't forget to check out the Stop the Frack Attack website for detailed information on Lobby Day and the National Gathering that lead up to the day of action.

In 2010, world leaders agreed to 20 targets to protect Earth's biodiversity over the next decade. By 2020, none of them had been met. Now, the question is whether the world can do any better once new targets are set during the meeting of the UN Convention on Biodiversity in Kunming, China later this year.

The first 24 hours of the administration of President Joe Biden were filled not only with ceremony, but also with real action. Executive orders and other directives were quickly signed. More actions have followed. All consequential. Many provide a basis for not just undoing actions of the previous administration, but also making real advances in public policy to protect public health, safety, and the environment.
