Google is, as we speak, trying to put together a search engine that'll let China block its citizens from searching for information about human rights abuses! What is the Chinese government afraid of? That their citizens will discover their government throws dissidents in jail on BS charges and detains hundreds of thousands of Muslims in "re-education camps"? I know what Google's afraid of, though: the Big Stick of Bad PR, which you can help wield, as Sum of Us helps you tell Google to abandon its plans to help the Chinese government censor its citizens' web searches. This ain't small potatoes stuff: information now travels faster than it ever has, and though Will Rogers might protest that this only means lies travel faster than they ever have, I prefer a world in which we have more of a fighting chance to learn the truth. And I want good Chinese citizens to have that fighting chance, too.
Meanwhile, our Administration has announced plans to gut Obama-era standards limiting carbon pollution from newly-constructed coal plants, not long after announcing plans to gut Obama-era standards limiting methane emissions from oil and gas drilling corporations. Remember when we fought to get carbon emissions standards applied to already-existing power plants, not just new ones? Well, it's a new day, one where our EPA doesn't care about the air you breathe and the water you drink; they now only care about ensuring that executives of dying industries (and coal surely is dying) keep raking in unearned dough. Hence the Environmental Defense Fund helps you tell our EPA to reject its own plans to put polluters first. When will we have a government that values its real bosses, the American people, more than it values corporate bosses? Only when we demand it and fight for it.
