Abby Zimet

Good news, a bit. When the fossil-fuel-and-Koch-Brother-funded American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) meets in Chicago this week, they'll have some explainin' to do to their corporate lackeys: Despite having declared their #1 priority to roll back states' clean energy standards via the usual disinformation campaign - including model legislation charmingly dubbed the "Electricity Freedom Act" - they failed to do so in every state they hit. Of course, they're still at it. More on what they tried to do, why and where it failed, what corporations are still listening (or not), and what comes next.

We know things are bad. We know it's worth the fight.

You are part of a strong and vibrant community of thinkers and doers who believe another world is possible. Alone we are weak. Together we can make a difference. At Common Dreams, we don't look away from the world—we are not afraid—our mission is to document those doing wrong and galvanize those doing good. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. We have now launched our annual Summer Campaign. Can you pitch in today?
