Help Put an End to Seafood Fraud~ As the task force works to implement its action plan, I ask that you rapidly expand traceability to all seafood sold in the U.S. & extend it through the full supply chain. This is the most effective way to provide consumers with adequate information about their seafood, protect fishers & seafood businesses that are competing with illegal & fraudulent products, and help stop IUU fishing that is harming our oceans.

Tell U.S. Dairies to Stop Wasting Milk! According to government data, Northeast dairies dumped 31 percent more milk this year than over the same time period in 2014. All that milk could have been used to feed calves that were removed from their mothers for the veal industry, or hungry people worldwide. The grains that contribute to the milk surplus could have also been better used to feed the hungry. Instead, dairy farmers are dumping their milk while doing nothing to curb milk production.

Huntington Beach Lawyer Matt McLaughlin has proposed an outrageous initiative called the "Sodomite Suppression Act," which would allow gays and lesbians to be killed. It is absolutely atrocious that someone who advocates for such violence and bigotry should be able to practice law in the state of California. A section of the initiative reads: "...the People of California wisely command, in the fear of God, that any person who willingly touches another person of the same gender for purposes of sexual gratification be put to death by bullets to the head or by any other convenient method."

    Mega droughts lasting decades will likely grip the Western half of the United States by the end of the century, according to NASA scientists. The cause: climate change. If carbon emissions are not reduced dramatically now, people in states from California to Kansas could experience conditions far worse than those of the 10-year Dust Bowl.

It's time for Congress to help U.S. Marines given toxic drinking water! One million Marines and family members who served our country at Camp Lejeune, NC, between 1953 and 1987 (including me) were given contaminated water to drink, cook, and wash in. Benzene, vinyl chloride, PCE - even diesel fuel leaked into our wells & gave many Marines horrible cancer! Dan Rather called it "the worst example of water contamination this country has ever seen."

Don't Let Wyoming Teach Bad Science! That's right, folks. Wyoming state leaders, including the governor, have blocked the teaching of Next Generation Science Standards, an approved science curriculum developed by twenty-six states & national science education organizations. What sticks in Wyoming's throat is that the new standards teach that climate change is real. But that's a lesson that Wyoming leaders refuse to learn.

    Teeters told the press that climate change isn't a "settled matter." Most importantly, he thinks that teaching good science will jeopardize Wyoming's energy exports industry, & might cause political unrest, like people thinking for themselves. Tell Wyoming leaders not to lie to children just to prop up the state's economy!

URGENT~ Add Labels to Genetically Modified Food Products!The reason as to why Americans should know what they are eating & what products have GMOs is because of studies tested on rats and the effects on them when put on a "GM (gentically modifed) Diet." The test showed that rats developed mammary tumors and severe liver & kidney damage as early as four months in males and seven months in females. Now imagine when you are eating foods that cause this to rats.

    It's too late. Monsanto owns the patent on all the seeds in the United States. Even if you are eating organic, the seeds are still GMO'd. :(

Vote With Your Wallet: Go GMO-Free~ It's about time Monsanto & its sister companies learned it's rude to play with our food. Our government has yet to ban GMO products, but we can vote with our wallets by refusing to buy GMO products. If enough of us eliminate GMO foods from our diets, we have a shot at getting rid of GMOs in America once & for all.

    Sorry Sondra but GMO is here to stay. Monsanto owns the patents on every single seed in the United States. All vegetables, grain, fruits have been seed modified, even organic. It's a losing battle. :(

Sign the petition and tell Congress: Pass the "Saving America's Pollinators Act" to protect our bees and food supply! Nearly 70 percent of Iowa's precious bees were too sick, poisoned by toxic agricultural pesticides produced by Bayer & Monsanto -- to survive this winter's frigid temperatures. Colony Collapse Disorder is a worldwide catastrophe, & what comes next is even worse. A quarter of everything we eat, from apples to watermelon, depends on bee pollination. Our food supply is at risk!
