Can you imagine a safer, healthier fossil fuel-free future filled with more trees and cleaner ways to get around for your children and grandchildren? So can we. And we’re working together to make it happen.
To avoid the most catastrophic effects of climate change, from stronger storms to more frequent floods and worsening wildfires, it is clear that we need to reduce our reliance on dirty fossil fuels such as methane, keep our old trees standing tall and transition to a zero-waste economy powered by clean, renewable energy. Fortunately, global warming solutions are all around us — we just need to use them.

What We're Doing
It’s clearer than ever that we no longer need to rely on dirty fossil fuels. We have an opportunity to repower our society and save our planet by urging our decision-makers to find common ground on climate change and reduce our country’s global warming emissions.

Biden promises action on climate change during event at former coal plant
President Joe Biden took his campaign to slow down climate change and speed up our transition to clean energy to the site of the former Brayton Point coal-fired power plant on Wednesday. Brayton Point is now becoming a hub for the development and production of offshore wind technology.

Statement: U.S. Postal Service more than doubles its electric vehicle commitment
The U.S. Postal Service announced on Wednesday that it would purchase at least 25,000 electric vehicles as part of its plan to replace an aging fleet, more than doubling its previous commitment. The announcement comes after the agency’s initial plan to “modernize” its fleet would have electrified only 10% of its vehicles, prompting calls for the agency to revisit its decision and a lawsuit filed by 16 states. The new commitments means at least 50% of the agency’s first 50,000 vehicle purchases will be electric.
