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 3rd. Read about our recent victory here.

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.

Repower America

Too much of our energy comes from dirty sources that harm our environment. But by tapping the power of the sun and wind, and using less energy in the first place, we can repower our lives with clean energy that doesn’t pollute and never runs out.

Protect America's Waters

From the Chesapeake to the Puget Sound, to the streams in our backyards, we should be able to swim, fish, and play in our local waterways without worry of pollution. But loopholes in the Clean Water Act have left more than half of the nation’s streams, 20 million acres of wetlands, and 117 million Americans’ drinking water at risk of unchecked pollution. Join our call to close these loopholes by taking action.

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.

Global Warming Solutions

Global warming is the most profound environmental threat that our children face. Scientists warn that unless we act now, our children and future generations will face catastrophic consequences. Despite the science, the dirty energy industry has been spending millions to continue to pump carbon pollution into our skies. But our staff and members are proving each day that there is a way forward on global warming.

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 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.
