Regional Climate Action

Each year, the climate crisis gets worse, affecting more of us with increasingly devastating storms, raging wildfires and severe droughts. Yet most of us are still powering our lives with energy from dirty and dangerous fossil fuel-fired power plants.

Fortunately, we don’t have to wait for decision-makers in Washington, D.C., to take action. States can take part in the best regional climate pollution reduction program you’ve probably never heard of: The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).
