Destination: Zero Carbon

Transportation is now America’s number one source of global warming pollution, with greenhouse emissions from cars, trucks, buses and other vehicles surpassing every other source. We simply can’t solve global warming without changing how Americans get around.

Delaware Watershed Project

The Delaware River is one of America's most treasured waterways.  The river and its tributaries are a home for wildlife, scenic views, and opportunities for fishing, swimming and hiking.  The watershed provides drinking water for more than 15 million people.  
To realize the Clean Water Act’s promise to make all of our waters safe enough for swimming and fishing, we need to make it easier for people to see and understand the problems affecting our waters. That’s why we organized the Delaware Watershed Project.

Conservation

We live in a world of incredible material abundance, but we’re running short on nature. We want more places where we can hike, bike and jog among trees and wildflowers. We want more mountaintops where we can see nothing but forest below, more rivers that flow wild and free, more shoreline where all we can hear are waves. We want more wildlife in our world, from the grizzly on the ridgeline to the bee in our garden, from the wolf in the forest to the butterfly in our backyard.

Clean, Green & Renewable Energy

In a greener, healthier world, we would conserve more, use the energy we have more wisely and efficiently, and rely only on sources of energy that are clean, renewable and leave less environmental damage in their wake.
The question is, what concrete steps can we take right now to move closer to the world we want to live in?

Clean Water & Air

In a greener, healthier world, all of us would treat our air and water as the precious life-giving resources they are, not as dumping grounds for our waste. Environment America takes concrete steps to move us closer to the world we want to live in, from holding illegal water and air polluters accountable to networking local citizens who serve as champions of the local waters they love.

Clean Car Communities

To slow global warming, we 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. That’s why our Clean Car Communities campaign is urging local and state officials to pave the way.

100% Renewable

Out with the old

We have the power to harness clean, abundant energy from the sun and the wind, and we can do it more efficiently and cheaply than ever before. Yet we’re still producing, consuming and wasting energy in ways that do lasting damage to our environment and our health -- fracking for gas near schools instead of putting solar panels on their roofs; drilling for oil near beaches instead of harnessing the winds that blow offshore; and burning coal, oil and gas instead of powering our homes, cars and lives with clean, renewable energy.
