RexxonMobil: Entertaining, yet Truthful.

Posted on October 11

by Caleb-Michael Files, Midwest / Plains Region Organizer, National Student Power Convergence

Posted in UMKC Environmental Science Student Association

I launched RexxonMobil.com to hold fossil fuel executive Rex Tillerson accountable for his actions in an entertaining and sharable way that drives attention to the serious issue of global climate disruption. This summer, Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson said “we can adapt,” to global climate disruption, so I think he should telecommute from places being ravaged by drought, wildfires and floods.

I traveled up and down the Gulf Coast this summer visiting my family in Louisiana. I have seen the impacts of extreme weather fueled by climate change and fossil fuels. Mr. Tillerson and his colleagues in the fossil fuel industry have no regard for the damage their companies are causing.

Posted in UMKC Environmental Science Student Association

I know I kind off fell of the face of the earth BUT its for a good reason!

I got hired to work in the field campaign for Jason Holsman. He has represented South Kansas City and Grandview in the Missouri House of Representatives for the past 6 years and has definitely been a friend to the environmental movement. Holsman is the Ranking Member on the Energy and Environment Committee, the Vice-Chair of the Democratic Policy Committee, a deputy floor whip, and the Recruiting Chair for the House Democrat Campaign Committee.

CALL TO ACTION: Help Shut Down Michigan State University’s T.B Simon Coal Plant

Posted on April 2

by Caleb-Michael Files, Midwest / Plains Region Organizer, National Student Power Convergence

Posted in UMKC Environmental Science Student Association

Students at MSU have been working tirelessly since 2009 to pressure their administration to shut down the T.B. Simon coal plant and transition to 100% clean energy.

After 3 years of organizing from students the administration finally came up with an unambitious energy transition plan that calls for 40% clean energy by 2030. The end goal is 100% clean energy. However, the current timeline extends to 2030 and doesnt even come close to half of the 100% goal. MSU Students are calling on the Board of Trustees to REJECT the current energy transition plan.

Meet Caleb: Spreading MO LOVE wherever he goes.

Posted on March 20

I wasn’t always an environmental activist. I had been a healthcare activist and LGBT activist before being asked to be a trainer at this thing called Power Shift2011. I had no idea what it was. I always picked up trash on the ground and recycled as much as I could, but didn’t know that there was a movement of youth activists around the nation working together to eliminate coal plants oncampuses, ban fracking in their states and working for green fees. I hesitantly said yes to travel to Chicago with people I had never met before.
