After completing work on the film The Last Castle, Ruffalo was diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma, a type of brain tumor, and had surgery; the tumor was benign, but resulted in a period of partial facial paralysis. He recovered from the paralysis; however, he became deaf in his left ear as a result of the tumor.
On December 1, 2008, Ruffalo’s brother, Scott, was shot at his Beverly Hills condominium, and died a week later.
In 2008, Ruffalo expressed concern that gas companies were eyeing his family’s land in Callicoon, New York. After doing his own investigation, New York magazine wrote, he becomes “anti-fracking’s first famous face.”
On October 4, 2010, Ruffalo appeared on The Rachel Maddow Show to discuss hydraulic fracturing and the FRAC Act of 2009.

The Department of Homeland Security denied the claim.
The Solutions Project is an organization formed by engineering professor Mark Z. Jacobson (Stanford University), documentary filmmaker/activist Josh Fox and Mark Ruffalo, with the aim of moving The United States towards 100% renewable energy, including the use of wind power and solar power. The organization says this energy transition is mainly social and political in nature, not technical.
In 2014, Ruffalo spoke out against Israel’s Operation Protective Edge, Israel’s 7-week war against Hamas, tweeting: “Israel destroys el-Wafa hospital as staff evacuates all patients”. After receiving criticism for defending Palestinians, Ruffalo responded: “Sorry, I thought blowing up Hospitals was something that all human beings could agree was off limits.” Finally, in response to accusations of anti-Semitism, Ruffalo responded, citing a Tikkun Daily article: “Empathizing w/ Gaza does NOT make me anti-Semitic, nor pro-Hamas or anti-Israel. It makes me human.”
In 2016, Ruffalo narrated and produced Dear President Obama: The Clean Energy Revolution Is Now, a documentary by director Jon Bowermaster which looks at President Obama’s environmental tenure and legacy concerning the massive expansion of oil and natural gas drilling.
