Regional Climate Action

To slow global warming, we need to ultimately eliminate carbon pollution from power plants. But we know that our leaders in Washington, D.C., are moving in the wrong direction. That’s why the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative might be the most important climate program you’ve never heard of.

No Bees, No Food

Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. We rely on bees to pollinate everything from almonds to strawberries to the alfalfa used to feed dairy cows. What happens if the bees disappear? It’s simple: No bees, no food. 

Go Solar

More Americans are going solar every day. By 2019, our country had enough solar energy capacity installed to power the equivalent of more than 12 million homes.

 

Go Big On Offshore Wind

Wind power is a key component in our energy future.

Global Warming Solutions

A greener, healthier world requires each of us to do all we can to eliminate the pollution and practices that are warming the planet and changing our climate. Environment America takes concrete steps to move us closer to the world we want to live in, from promoting the fossil fuel divestment movement to accelerating the transition to cars that don’t pollute.

Get the Lead Out

Get the Lead Out

Medical experts estimate that more than 24 million American kids will lose IQ points due to lead exposure. Our research finds many of these kids will be exposed to lead in their schools’ drinking water. That’s why we’re working to Get the Lead Out.

Environmental Defense: The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

One of the most spectacular wildlife migrations in the world takes place each spring and summer on the coastal plain of America's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. Some 200,000 caribou migrate hundreds of miles annually to give birth there. Millions of migratory birds flock there to nest. Polar bears and cubs den on the coastal plain over the winter. And, due to this abundance of wildlife, for thousands of years the native Gwich’in people have depended on this biological jewel for survival, with a culture centered around the caribou herd.

Environmental Defense: Our Water

Decades ago, some people thought polluted rivers and streams were the price we had to pay for progress. That’s not a world we have to live in anymore. Nor is it the future our children deserve. Yet President Trump and his allies in Congress are pushing for changes that would turn back the clock to when environmental protection was an afterthought — not the foundation for a better quality of life and a brighter future.
