Last week, India's Telecom Regulatory Authority recommended strong net neutrality regulations protecting consumers' rights to go where they want on the internet, unfettered by corporate attempts to herd them into junk news or junk pop culture ghettos; of course, our pedantic right-wing FCC Chair appointed by a President who got only 46% of the popular vote wants to take our great country in the other direction -- not the direction of freedom for the American people, but the direction of "freedom" for corporations to make the American people less free, and gouge them in the process. So, though we've already left over 20 million comments supporting net neutrality with the FCC (most of which they've already come out and said they've ignored), you can keep calling your House Reps and Senators (and the three right-wing FCC Commissioners) about the matter, while Battle for the Net helps you find a pro-net neutrality protest tomorrow. (Verizon used to employ our FCC Chair, after all.) They want to silence us, so let's make sure they fail.
Meanwhile, Hurricanes Irma and Maria destroyed most of Puerto Rico's power infrastructure, as you know, and the Trump Administration has been handing out taxpayer-funded contracts to thoroughly undeserving corporations -- but Penn Environment helps you tell your Congressfolk to help Puerto Rico get power and clean water back, and to help them do so with renewable energy. The coal industry is all full of their TEH SUN SETZ TEH WIND DIEZ!!!!! billboards, but coal, oil, and gas are the real unreliable fuels, because they're all going to run out one day, and probably make our planet uninhabitable first. Meanwhile, the sun shines every day, and the wind always picks up eventually, there is such a thing as battery storage, and you can put up more solar panels and wind turbines a hell of a lot more easily than you can dig into the ground to find fossil fuels -- plus you won't be polluting the planet anywhere near as much. The good folks of Puerto Rico (American citizens, by the way!) deserve a lot better from our government, so let's make our government do better.
