some crypto is bad for the climate

  John, As cryptocurrency becomes more popular and the industry grows, we’re discovering that certain crypto technology can have a massive negative impact on the environment. “Proof of work” platforms like Bitcoin are the worst offenders. They require so much computing …

I am outraged, and you should be, too.

  John, For decades, extreme religious conservatives have tried relentlessly to overturn Roe v. Wade and prevent women from accessing critical reproductive health care — and now, their efforts have come to fruition. Last night, news broke that the Supreme Court has inde…

why me?

  John, President Biden has set a new and more hopeful climate action agenda, and we are making progress. But honestly, we are still not doing nearly enough to end our dependence on planet-killing fossil fuels. Perhaps our greatest challenge is the fact that the fossil f…

The only way we can tackle the climate crisis

  John, The climate crisis is the challenge of a generation, and we are quickly running out of time to change course. The devastation of climate change is a direct threat to the livability of our planet, which is why this Earth Day, we must seize this opportunity to conf…

Jared’s note about running for reelection

  Hello John, I wanted to make sure you received Jared’s email about why he’s running for reelection (forwarded below). What Jared didn’t say is that he is facing a challenge from multiple challengers. His record speaks for itself, but it’s important that we report strong support on our fi…

what happened at the USPS

urge the USPS to invest in electric vehicles

We need to protect women’s reproductive rights

Regarding January 6th, 2021

we must act to protect polar bears

Supreme Court to hear major abortion case
