Take Action

Morgan Folger

Former Director, Destination: Zero Carbon, Environment America

We have myriad opportunities to transform our transportation systems at the local, state and regional levels, which can ultimately pave the way for action at the federal level.

Thanks in part to the work we’ve done, 13 states, representing a quarter of all vehicles in the U.S., now require a rising share of new cars to be electric. New York City, Chicago, Seattle and the state of California have already committed to switch from dirty diesel to clean electric buses. Our network has led efforts to improve public transportation and build safer streets for walking and biking in Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Washington and Wisconsin.

Will you stand with our forests?

Our forests are invaluable. They’re chock full of centuries old trees, provide irreplaceable wildlife habitat and act as a natural climate solution. It’s up to us to save our forests from clear-cutting. This week make a Giving Tuesday gift to help protect our forests.
