Record-breaking weather, farmers losing crops, banks repossessing land from the poor, a president scorned by his opponents for socialism. We've seen this before. READ MORE»
Oh, I hope NOT, but what we are doing to our own environment by such activity as 'fracking' and all the excess of carbon that is in the atmosphere, we probably are. The worst thing about that is--would it be a wake up call or not. We caused the first dust bowl with poor farming methods. The problem with that is that since it did happen before there are deniers who claim that it is just part of 'weather cycles'.
We need to Stop being so Greedy, start changing our ways, from fossil fuels to reusable energy, before we 'Frack' away our Future.
Yes, I did sign. I am passing on this e-mail with the hope that everyone who can--will join us or at least pass it on to those who are able or maybe even both--THANK YOU;

Fracking -- the drilling process technically known as hydraulic fracturing where water, chemicals and sand are blasted at high velocity into underground fissures to release natural gas -- has been linked to pollution, flammable tap water and even earthquakes. But despite the dangers, state legislatures across the U.S. are letting the fracked gas industry write its own regulations, essentially letting the frackers do whatever they want.Pennsylvania and Ohio have already passed such laws and a dozen more states are planning to follow suit. And as coal plants shut down throughout the U.S., they're being replaced by power plants fueled by fracked natural gas, so unless we do something we'll simply have traded one evil for another.
Fortunately, Environmental Action is fighting back - they're part of a big national coalition fighting fracking the states, and calling for a nation-wide ban on this dangerous drilling. They're planning big events to show public opposition to fracking this summer, can you join me in signing on now to support a nationwide ban on fracking, before it's too late?http://bit.ly/KQZz2X-----------------

The top two corporations on the Fortune 500 Global ranking, Royal Dutch Shell and ExxonMobil, announced their 2012 second-quarter earnings today, bringing the total profits for three Big Oil companies to $44 billion for 2012 or $250,000 every day this year. Exxon profited by $16 billion this quarter, bringing its earnings for 2012 to $25 billion.If only some bosses could or would understand that their employees are other businesses costumers. When they short change their employees then other businesses suffer because their costumers have less money to spend. After all, those businesses that suffer employs the costumers of . . .

The New York Times wrote that Exxon and Shell’s earnings “disappoint,” because energy prices unexpectedly dropped for consumers this summer. Put their profits in the appropriate context, however, and Exxon and Shell still made a combined $160,000 per minute last quarter, even though the top five oil companies benefit from $2.4 billion federal tax breaks every year.
