Congressman Mike Honda has spent more than a decade in Congress working tirelessly to protect our environment and public health, earning him an impressive 97% on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.
Ugh—Under The Tea Party influence, House Republicans’ votes on the environment went from bad to worse in 2013. See if your representative sided with climate change deniers or stood up for our environment last year: http://scorecard.lcv.org/
BREAKING: We’ve just released the 2013 National Environmental Scorecard!

Now is the time! Secretary of State John Kerry is making up his mind on whether he thinks the Keystone XL pipeline is in “our national interest.” The answer is clearly NO!

Michael Bloomberg has been appointed as the United Nations' Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change. A proven leader on climate issues, he will be a strong advocate to address climate change and help improve the lives of people in urban regions around the globe.
President Barack Obama began last year by making strong arguments for why we must #ActOnClimate during his Inauguration and State of the Union speeches. In his speech tonight, we’re hoping he’ll lay out even bolder plans to combat climate change.
What environmental issues do you hope Obama will talk about during tonight’s #SOTU speech?
Good news for our Arctic: Just last week, Shell received another setback in their quest to drill oil in the pristine Arctic Ocean when a federal appeals court ruled that the company wrongly received drilling permits in 2008. Learn more: http://bit.ly/1f6AleM
Over the weekend, a TransCanada natural gas pipeline exploded shooting flames 300 meters into the air and leaving thousands without heat in sub-zero temperatures. This is the SAME company that’s trying to run the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline through America’s heartland. They say their pipelines are safe—does this look safe to you? http://bit.ly/19Xlju2
We cannot let TransCanada build any more pipelines that endanger our lives and environment.
Illinois Congressman Bill Enyart pledged to support action on climate change under the Clean Air Act during the 2012 campaign in order to get our support. But he went back on his word and co-sponsored legislation that would GUT the Clean Air Act. Not cool. Tell him to give LCV’s campaign contribution back here:http://wefb.it/ncLKBW
