Wind power for America

American wind energy is powering the equivalent of nearly 13 million homes, avoiding as much carbon pollution as if 13 million cars were taken off the road, and supporting more than 70,000 American jobs. Thanks to President Obama and Congress, critical tax credit for wind power were extended on January 3, 2013.

Stop Fracking Our Future

Across the country, fracking is contaminating drinking water, making nearby families sick with air pollution, and turning forest acres into industrial zones. Yet the oil and gas industry is pushing to expand this dirty drilling—to new states and even near critical drinking water supplies for millions of Americans. We need to show massive public support to stop the oil and gas industry from fracking our future.

Save the Bees

Of the world’s major food crops, 71 percent are dependent on bees for pollination. But honeybee populations have been declining since 2006, threatening food supplies, such as strawberries, carrots and coffee. Widespread use of a class of toxic pesticides called neonicotinoids is a significant contributing factor. Now chemical companies want to be able to use even more of these pesticides. We should be using less pesticides, not more!

Let's Get Off Oil

The environmental costs of our oil dependence are out of control — from accidents and spills, to smog, to climate change. It's time to set this country on a path to getting off oil for good. We can get there by convincing our leaders to make new investments in fuel-efficient cars, new technology, and a first-class system of public transportation.

Go Solar

More and more Americans are going solar, meeting more of our energy needs in a way that’s clean and local. Unfortunately, dirty energy companies are putting up new roadblocks at every turn. Our research shows that the cities and states with the most solar power aren't the ones with the most sunshine—they're the ones with the best pro-solar policies. That’s why we’re urging our leaders to go big on solar and leave dirty energy behind.

Global Warming Solutions

Nobody wants our kids to inherit a world where storms like Superstorm Sandy—or worse—are the new normal. That’s why it’s so important we reduce the pollution fueling global warming. The less we pollute now, the safer our climate will be for future generations. We’ve launched a campaign to get information to more than 1 million Americans about the local impacts of global warming, the threats of power plant pollution, and the impact President Obama’s Clean Power Plan will have on our children’s future.

Conservation America

We should be doing everything we can to protect places like Riverbend Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway. But some in Congress want to eliminate funding for our most successful parks and open space program.

Program

Clean Water for America

Polluting industries have put our nation's waters in jeopardy by carving loopholes in the Clean Water Act, leaving 2 million miles of America's streams open to pollution. Join our call to restore the law's protection to all of our waters.

Program

Clean Air, Healthy Families

New clean air standards from the Environmental Protection Agency could cut emissions of dangerous air pollutants like smog, soot and mercury, saving tens of thousands of lives each year. The coal industry and their friends in Congress are trying to block these standards, so we’re urging the Obama administration and EPA to stand strong and move ahead with these commonsense standards to protect public health—and ensure that Congress doesn’t block this critical effort.
