Stop the fracking rush
Senate Bill 76, if passed, would speed up the permitting process for fracking in NC. Worst of all, is that this will happen before the state legislature even reviews the strength or weakness of fracking rules and regulations that are currently under debate in the state’s Mining and Energy Commission. This irresponsible bill comes after pro-drilling legislators pledged last year that they would only legalize fracking in NC with strict standards in place.
Send a message to Gov. McCrory and your state legislators and urge them to oppose S76:
Stop Senate Bill 10
Recently, the NC state House passed an amended version of S10 that is much more moderate and measured than the Senate version, which would fire and replace all members of most of the state's environmental boards and commissions. However, S10 in its current form is still an unnecessary bill. The initial House version of S10 introduced was especially better because it removed the state’s Utilities Commission from the bill. But, Rep. Mike Hager, a former employee of Duke Energy, successfully passed an amendment to place the Utilities Commission back in the bill and thus fire all the current commissioners.
Send a message to your state legislators and Governor McCrory to oppose SB10.
Promote Solar Energy in NC2012 has gone down as the hottest year ever recorded in the continental United States and scientific evidence points overwhelmingly to human activity (like the burning of fossil fuels) as the cause of a global temperature increase. But, it's not too late to act and North Carolina can do its part by expanding its commitment to clean renewable energy, especially solar power.
Tell Governor McCrory that you support solar energy:
