The Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN) Action Fund is an environmentalist lobbying group organization whose mission is to fight global warming on a policy level, through opposition to fossil fuels in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. It is the advocacy arm of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network, a 501(c)(3). 
The CCAN Action Fund receives grants from its sister organization Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN), the New York-based Tioga Fund, and the Big Organizing Action Fund, a now defunct organization that was funded by Food and Water Watch (FWW).  FWW is an environmental organizing group that supports the far-left socialist Green New Deal (GND) while supporting campaigns against natural gas development, bottled water, and genetically modified foods.

He is an environmentalist author and filmmaker, whose works include the book The Ravaging Tide: Strange Weather, Future Katrinas, and the Race to Save America’s Coastal Cities, and the documentary film We Are All Smith Islanders.
