Florida Power and Light wants to build a fracked gas plant in Dania Beach, Florida. The company wants to burn fossil fuels instead of putting that investment into better, reliable clean energy alternatives like solar power.

Pilgrim's Pride, the country's second largest poultry processor, dumped three times the allowable level of pollutants into the Suwannee River, and two weeks ago, the company settled a lawsuit filed by Environment Florida and Sierra Club's Suwannee St. John's Group.

In addition to a slate of clean-up actions, a federal judge slapped the company with what is believed to be the largest civil penalty for a Clean Water Act violation brought by a citizen suit in Florida history.
