Received this e-mail today from actor and activist Mark Ruffalo on behalf of CREDO Action:
As it goes, I know a thing or two about coming to the rescue against evil plans -- it’s part of my day job.

But it's one thing to fight bad guys on the big screen, and quite another to stop pro-fracking extremists like Thom Tillis who are working to destroy vital protections that keep us safe from toxic drilling.

In real life, we can’t depend on a superhero to protect us. But when we come together in action, we are all at our most powerful, and we can accomplish amazing things.

One thing we need to accomplish this November is to defeat Thom Tillis, who cares more about serving the fossil fuel industry than protecting us.

Please join me in taking a stand against fracking by supporting CREDO SuperPAC's grassroots campaign to defeat Thom Tillis.

Tillis is a leader in the extreme pro-fracking agenda in North Carolina. He just helped push into North Carolina law one of the worst pro-fracking bills in the country. He helped lift the state's fracking ban, and then went so far as to make it illegal to disclose the toxins in fracking fluid.

It's time that we pitch in together with the funding desperately needed to build a people-powered campaign to beat him in November.

I hope you'll help build the fight against fracking by joining me to support CREDO SuperPAC's grassroots campaign. Together, we can defeat Thom Tillis and his radical fracking agenda.

We are the heroes we have been waiting for. Let's get this done.

-Mark Ruffalo

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
