We’re going on the road
You know that the small staff of Environmental Advocates works hard to advance smart solutions to protect our environment, and we sound the alarm when decision-makers attempt to chip away at our hard-fought safeguards. You help us hold elected officials accountable for what they do – or don’t do – to protect our air, land, water and communities.

In my 20s I had a type, and he liked B List horror movies. I can’t explain it, and I won’t try. Sometimes we just have to accept these things.
As a result I’ve seen (read: endured) my fair share of zombie flicks. There’s only one I would ever want to see again (Disclaimer: this is an R-rated zombie clip resplendent with fake blood and guts, harsh language, and Queen).
The average person has no clue how much of their waste can actually be recycled. After all, it’s easy to get in the habit of throwing garbage away. But with just a little more consciousness, it is not only easy but very gratifying to let your waste – paper, metal, plastics and glass – live another day. And that day isn’t in a landfill, stream, or along the side of the road!

The City of Oberlin, Ohio is the home of a revolution for environmentalists and citizens everywhere. You can now visit a website and see the city’s energy and water consumption habits in real time, and even zoom down to municipal buildings. Interested or concerned taxpayers, for example, can soon be able to check to see whether the Mayor left the lights on overnight. Business can run friendly competitions with each other over who is greenest, and all this information is updated in real-time and as available as if you were friends with the city on Facebook.

It never crossed my mind that New York’s elected officials would let the 2013 legislative session end without taking some kind of meaningful action to fight climate change. I mean, the devastation felt by recent storms, floods, and extreme weather patterns is too much to ignore, right?
Shark finning is the cruel process of capturing a shark, removing its fins, and dumping the rest of the animal back into the ocean to die painfully. The fins are used for shark fin soup which is considered a delicacy is many Asian cultures, especially in China but also in some places in the United States. Shark finning takes place all over the world (including the north Atlantic) and is rarely regulated.
