To promote global warming solutions, Environment America, our network of 29 state affiliates, and members and activists in all 50 states are running these projects and campaigns:
Fossil Fuel Free: Even as global warming accelerates, the major oil, gas and coal companies are sticking to business as usual. Fortunately, a growing number of investors understand that the industry’s business model is incompatible with what scientists are telling us we must do to slow global warming. That’s why we’re supporting the fossil fuel divestment movement.
Tropical Forest Protection: To slow global warming, we must protect the world’s tropical forests. We’re doing our part by urging companies to commit to stop cutting them down—a commitment known as zero-deforestation. We are currently focusing on the beef and soybean supply chain.
Destination: Zero Carbon: We simply can't solve global warming without changing how Americans get around. To reach our destination, we’re aiming to make all new car sales electric by 2035, make all school and transit buses electric by 2030, and double the number of people who travel on foot, bike, or public transit by 2030.
Regional Climate Action: We also must reduce and ultimately eliminate carbon pollution from power plants. Especially given the absence of leadership from Washington, D.C., the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative might be the most important climate program you’ve never heard of.
Environmental Defense: Our Climate: The Trump administration has moved to dismantle protections that limit global warming pollution from power plants, cars and trucks, and other sources. We’re working to defend and strengthen these climate protections.
