It’s official! After lots of signature-gathering (some by your hosts here at GreenBaes), I-1631 will be on the ballot in Washington State. We have an amazing opportunity to lead the country in switching to renewables in an economically just way.

If you’re a Washington resident, we need your support. Visit the Yes on 1361 website  for info on what you can do to help!

Byebye, Bayou Bridge Pipeline

lake-trees-sky-hdr-445190.jpegAnother victory for climate justice activists!

This time, it’s a stay of construction on Energy Transfer Partners’ planned Bayou Bridge Pipeline. This will not only prevent more fossil fuel infrastructure, but save the delicate wetlands that support the people and wildlife of Louisiana’s coast.  The fight for climate justice might not be easy, but we will win!

The fight isn’t quite finished. Activists were arrested during the process of halting the pipeline, and need help with their legal fees. There is also an appeal from Energy Transfer Partners, who are determined to build their pipeline. Find out more about how you can help HERE.
