The upcoming election presents us with an opportunity to preserve and conserve a habitable planet. That's why I'm hosting "Green The Senate, Save the Planet" on Thursday, October 8 at 8pm EST to support pro-environment champions running for Senate.

In celebration of Earth Day, Borderland Festival is very proud to release a video featuring members of the Infamous Stringdusters, Greensky Bluegrass, Fruition with a guest appearance by Keller Williams.

Stop. Just stop.

It is no longer a request. It is a mandate.

We will help you.

We will bring the supersonic, high speed merry-go-round to a halt

We will stop

the planes

the trains

the schools

the malls

the meetings

the frenetic, furied rush of illusions and “obligations” that keep you from hearing our

single and shared beating heart,

the way we breathe together, in unison.

Our obligation is to each other,

As it has always been, even if, even though, you have forgotten.

As a dead center member of Generation X, I know all too well what it’s like to live with the Baby Boomers’ bullshit for, well, ever. As a kid growing up I had to endure their hijacking of pop culture long after their ideas and youth and influence were actually relevant. I’ve had Bob Dylan, The Beatles, and the Rolling Stones shoved down my throat as the gold standard for rock and roll for as long as I’ve been able to draw breath.  Jimi Hendrix is the greatest and there is no disputing it.

Moments ago, the Trump administration -- led by Interior Secretary Zinke -- announced that it is gutting a critical protection for public health and the environment.

The Bureau of Land Management’s methane waste rule stopped oil and gas companies from pointlessly venting and flaring methane on our public lands. Now, Zinke’s rollback of this rule will mean more air pollution, public health threats, and climate pollution.

The Mercer Family Foundation has sunk millions of dollars into Breitbart, climate-denying politicians, and a host of climate denial organizations.

But the head of the foundation, Rebekah Mercer, sits on the board of one of our nation’s largest and most respected natural history museums -- the American Museum of Natural History.

Friends of the Earth is joining a broad coalition of groups to kick Rebekah Mercer off the board of this museum -- but we need your help!
