We helped win the single biggest action our country has ever taken on climate

Under the newly announced Clean Power Plan, gas and coal power plants will pollute 32 percent less and clean energy sources such as wind and solar will meet much more of the nation’s electricity needs. Environment America is proud of the role we’ve played to galvanize public support for this historic plan. With continued commitment from President Obama and state leaders, and strong backing from the American people, this will mark a giant shift toward the 100 percent clean energy reality that the climate crisis demands and future generations deserve.

We’re leaving a safer climate for kids growing up today.

After we helped present the facts, engage elected leaders and gather an overwhelming 8 million comments of support, President Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency finalized the historic Clean Power Plan in 2015. The plan limits emissions from America’s No. 1 source of global warming pollution—power plants. It also helped set the stage for the historic Paris Agreement, made between 196 countries to reduce emissions last December.
