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.
Clean Car Communities: We also need to change what we drive. We’re calling for all new cars and trucks to be electric by 2035. We know our leaders in Washington, D.C., are going the wrong way on this issue, so our Clean Car Communities campaign is urging local and state officials to point the way forward.
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.
