Our Allies

We welcome more and more allies to the  New Progressive Alliance. We invite your organization to consider becoming an ally. Some allies support all of the Unified Platform. Other allies support just one of the ten points such as environmental protection or corporate accountability. Some by their charter and actions clearly support the goals of the  Unified Platform.  Either way, it is to our mutual advantage to be working together. We welcome all to the Alliance! Click an organization to learn more about it. To become an ally just email us and we can talk.

Dr. James Hansen

Boiling Frog Party  The NPA is a 501c4 educational organization. Many - including us - have tried to educate on subjects such as the environment or economy with serious papers.

For examples of Gary's serious papers see Gary Swing on Election Reform and When Clinton Lied, Yugoslavia Died.

 MOVE-AMMEND-JPEG.JPG

 On January 21, 2010, with its ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons, entitled by the U.S. Constitution to buy elections and run our government. Human beings are people; corporations are legal fictions. Move to Amend seeks to change this. 

 

 

Ocean Agency

Of all the conservation challenges on the planet, ocean conservation should top the list – it is about conserving the very source of life on Earth. But it is a challenge that is out of sight and out of mind - awareness of the issues and fundamental role of the ocean is so low, ocean conservation is one of the least supported areas of conservation. Each of the main issues; pollution, overfishing, ocean warming and acidification are major in their own right, but together they create arguably the greatest environmental challenge we have ever needed to overcome - that of ocean change.  For thousands of years, the ocean has been stable, providing our planet with food, most of the oxygen we breathe, a favorable climate and a reliable supply of fresh water. It is the main reason why mankind has been able to flourish. But the ocean is no longer stable. It is changing faster now than at any time in millions of years. We have pushed it to its limit and beyond, thinking it was too big to fail us. 93% of climate change heat is being absorbed by the ocean, and a third of CO2 emissions, rapidly changing ocean chemistry – the ocean is where the momentum of climate change is building up. Letting rapid ocean change continue is quite frankly not an option, not if we want humanity to continue to flourish.
