Current Actions

  • Save our oceans

    Ocean ecosystems are buckling under the strain of climate change: Scientists estimate that our oceans have absorbed 93 percent of the excess heat from global warming.

    The result: Oceans today are warmer, more acidic and less oxygen-rich. Critical habitats like reefs, mangroves and seagrass meadows are being devastated. Fish and wildlife populations are plummeting. And all of this has worsened the impact of the other stresses we're putting on our seas, like plastic pollution.

    There are two things we need to do to save our seas: act on climate change and protect ocean ecosystems from other harms. A new bill would do both, conserving vast swathes of ocean and promoting "blue carbon" habitats like kelp forests to absorb more global warming pollution.

    Tell your U.S. House representative to support the Ocean-Based Climate Solutions Act today.

  • Act on Climate: Show Your Support for Rejoining the Paris Agreement

    President-elect Biden,

    On January 20, 2021, you have an opportunity to show the world that the U.S. is all in on tackling the climate crisis. We urge you to follow through on your pledge to rejoin the Paris Agreement on the first day of your administration.

    In 2015, the U.S. played a critical role in developing the landmark accord to tackle climate change, signed by nearly every nation. But in the last four years, the Trump administration abandoned it's duty to act on climate and in November 2020, fulfilled his campaign promise to withdraw from the Paris Agreement.

    It is time that the U.S. establishes itself as a global leader on climate.

    There will be a lot of work to do moving forward, but rejoining the Paris Agreement will commit the U.S. to significant emissions reductions and would signal that the U.S. is serious about addressing climate change again.

  • Tell Exxon to Act on Climate

    Dear CEO Darren Woods,

    Climate change is the biggest challenge of our generation. If we want to have any chance of avoiding the worst impacts of global warming, we need all hands on deck. That means the federal government, state governments and companies large and small in every industry need to take action.

    Other major oil companies, like Shell and BP, have joined the effort to tackle climate change by pledging to reduce their emissions to net-zero by 2050. These actions will have a major impact on global warming pollution.

    The science is clear: we have to reduce emissions. We urge Exxon to join the others and pledge to hit net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

  • Tell Procter & Gamble: No clear-cutting in the boreal forest

    Shareholders of Procter & Gamble voted for a proposal asking the company to report on its efforts to reduce deforestation and forest degradation in its supply chains, an amazing first step to protect the ancient boreal forest in Canada from clear-cutting. Now we need to make sure leadership follows through. Join us in urging Procter & Gamble to stop using virgin wood to create tissue products.

  • Tell Congress: Invest in clean water

    Each year, billions of gallons of sewage and stormwater runoff pollute our waterways with sickening pathogens. This pollution has worsened in recent years -- causing millions to become sick when exposed to this dirty water.

    Right now, the U.S. Senate has its best chance in a long time to fix our outdated, decaying water systems with an $11 billion investment. Join us in calling on them to take it.

  • Tell your governor to commit to all-electric public and school buses

    Dirty air is making us sick -- and diesel exhaust is partially to blame. Multiple studies suggest exposure to diesel exhaust can worsen asthma and cause cancer. To mitigate air pollution caused by diesel exhaust, we have to transition public buses and school buses to electric vehicles.

  • It's time to act on climate

    Congress is getting back to work this month to pass a budget and a COVID-19 relief bill -- and there's a chance that an extension of clean energy tax credits could come up for a vote.

    Those tax incentives would make a big difference by giving people and businesses who want to invest in wind and solar power greater certainty in 2021 and beyond. But it's far more likely to happen if your U.S. senators and representative hear from you.

    Tell your U.S. senators and representative to act on climate.

  • Add your name to support appliance efficiency standards and cutting energy waste in D.C.

    One of the easiest ways to reduce energy and water waste is to set higher efficiency standards for the appliances and plumbing fixtures in our households and businesses. Now, Washington D.C. has a chance to embrace this commonsense solution to climate change with Bill 23-0204.

    By 2025, the appliance standards proposed in Bill 23-0204 will:

    1. Save enough electricity annually to power 7,000 D.C. homes for a year

    2. Save enough water to meet the annual needs of 15,000 D.C. homes

    3. Reduce emissions equal to taking 5,400 cars off of the road for a year

    4. Save D.C. consumers and businesses $19 million annually

    I support updated appliance efficiency standards because they can be a key part of the puzzle in addressing climate change. I urge D.C. council members to do everything in their power to ensure that Bill 23-0204 is passed during this legislative session. We have the technology to create appliances without needlessly wasting water, energy and money, and we should use it.

  • Ask UPS to go the extra mile on EVs

    Earlier this year, UPS committed to purchasing 10,000 electric vehicles. Now imagine if all 125,000 iconic brown trucks were electric. Thank UPS for the commitment, and ask them to go the extra mile and make a plan to electrify the entire fleet.

  • Support stronger energy efficiency standards

    If we're going to build a cleaner, more sustainable society, we need to tap into the cleanest form of energy: The energy we don't use in the first place. I support standards that require appliances and other commonly used products and machinery to be more energy efficient, for the good of our communities and our planet.

  • Tell Chevron: Don't drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    Chevron CEO Michael Wirth:

    There are some places too special, too ecologically important, too sacred to drill in. The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is one of them.

    The coastal plain of the refuge is home to vulnerable denning polar bears, North America's largest caribou herd, and millions of migratory birds from all 50 states and 6 continents.

    Any drilling in this American jewel would be a national tragedy. I ask that you pledge not to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

    Sincerely,

  • Help put an end to offshore drilling

    The Oceans-Based Climate Solutions Act is comprehensive and ambitious legislation that seeks to leverage the ocean's potential in the fight against climate change, including by prohibiting the expansion of offshore oil drilling and exploration. Send a message to your Representative today and ask them to support the bill.

  • Tell Costco: Help save the Boreal

    Costco, a major seller of toilet paper, has a chance to make a major difference on preventing widespread deforestation in the boreal forest. Tell Costco CEO Craig Jelinek: Help save North America's biggest and most vital forest by committing your company to only sell products made sustainably.

  • Join One Million for 100% Renewable Energy

    With 100 percent renewable energy, we could power our society reliably without polluting our communities or leaving environmental devastation in our wake. But to make that vision a reality, we need to demonstrate the broad nationwide support for transitioning to a sustainable society. Add your voice and become one of One Million for 100% Renewable Energy to join a growing community of changemakers and take coordinated and strategic action to move our country and our planet to 100 percent.

  • Tell Bank of America: Don't fund drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    Every major bank in the country has pledged not to invest in oil and gas drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge -- except for Bank of America.

    The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is one of the last truly wild places we have left. We can't afford to lose this place to drilling, and neither can the more than 200 species of wildlife that call it home. That's why I'm urging you to join the ranks of every other major bank in the country and pledge not to invest in drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

  • Tell Whole Foods Market: Planet Over Plastic

    In 2019, The Ocean Conservancy found that plastic food wrappers were the number one item of trash picked up on beaches worldwide. Single-use plastic packaging is a glaring example of a culture that prioritizes a moment's convenience over the long-term health of our oceans. We don't need it and, to protect wildlife and our ecosystems, we need to move beyond it.

    That's why we're calling on Whole Foods to make a bold, time-bound commitment to reduce its plastic footprint. Help us tell Whole Foods Market that it must put the 'planet over plastic' by eliminating all single-use plastic packaging from its stores.

  • Defend the Arctic from seismic exploration

    The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is one of our nation's treasures. It's our country's largest, most remote wildlife refuge and home to caribou, walrus, arctic wolves, foxes and birds from all 50 states. The Arctic Refuge also has the densest population of denning mother polar bears, and experts worry that human activity could drive mothers to abandon their dens and cubs. Seismic exploration could also injure, crush or kill denning polar bears who are hibernating under the surface.

    There are some places too special, too ecologically important, too sacred to drill in. The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is one of them. I urge you not to allow seismic exploration in the Arctic Refuge to protect this unique place and its wildlife for generations to come.

  • Tell your governor: Invest in clean, electric school buses

    Electric school buses are ready to roll and they are cleaner, healthier, and cheaper for school districts to operate in the long-run. We shouldn't be sending our kids to school on buses that give them a daily dose of toxic pollution and make the climate crisis worse. Tell your governor to invest in electric school buses.

  • Tell NOAA: It's time to start restoring the Florida Keys

    The coral reefs, mangroves and marine life in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary are experiencing unsustainable die-offs. There's plenty of threats -- climate change, disease, pollution and overfishing -- but there are only a few agencies with the power to make a difference.

    That's why we're calling on NOAA to act now. Help us tell NOAA that it must establish more marine zones and strengthen protections for the marine life that call the Keys home.

  • Show your support for phasing out super greenhouse gases

    Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) are extraordinarily potent climate pollutants. Even small concentrations of HFCs in the atmosphere can significantly harm the planet. The good news is that there are less harmful alternatives. Curbing HFCs can bring climate relief quickly. Phasing down HFC use now can avoid an additional quarter to half degree Celsius of warming by 2100. That's huge. The U.S. Senate is considering phasing them out. Send a message to your Senators to show your support today.

  • More Nature: 30 Percent by 2030 Resolution

    The wild places we love and need are under siege from oil drilling, overfishing and other threats. That's why we want to set a national target of protecting 30 percent of our land and 30 percent of our ocean by 2030.

  • Tell your representative: Support "solar strong" legislation

    "Solar strong" legislation would support first responders and increase renewable energy by putting solar panels and battery backup systems on every fire station across the country. Tell your representative to support solar strong legislation today.

  • Tell your senators: Permanently ban offshore drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic

    The president now favors a 10-year moratorium on offshore drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. But 10 years isn't enough -- especially when there's two permanent bans on the table.

    The U.S. House of Representatives has passed two bills that would permanently ban offshore drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the entire Atlantic coastline. Now, it's up to us to urge our U.S. senators to support this ban to save marine life from the dangers of oil spills.

  • Tell your senators: Support a ban on bee-killing pesticides

    Bees are vital pollinators: They play an indispensable role in the health of ecosystems and our food supply. Losing them would have a devastating effect on the natural world and the health of some of our most important crops.

    But here in the U.S., pesticides are already wiping out bee colonies from coast to coast. Specifically, the widespread use of a class of pesticides called neonicotinoids (neonics, for short) has been one of the key drivers of colony collapse in recent years.

    A new bill, the Protect America's Children from Toxic Pesticides Act of 2020, would follow the lead of Canada and the European Union by banning neonics, along with other pesticides shown to threaten the health of kids and farmworkers. Tell your senators to support it today.

  • Tell the EPA: Weaker toxic wastewater standards put our drinking water at risk

    The Trump administration's latest rollback will make it easier for coal power plants to dump wastewater filled with heavy metal contaminants into our rivers and streams. This pollution can contaminate our drinking water, putting us at greater risk of health problems such as cancer and heart disease.

    Tell the EPA: Protect our drinking water for the sake of our health and our environment.

  • Don't remove gray wolves from the endangered species list

    Gray wolves were once nearly driven to extinction -- with only a few hundred left in the lower 48 states by the time they received endangered species protections in 1973.

    Right now, gray wolves only occupy 10 to 15 percent of their historical range. This critical species requires a national plan, if not a continental one, if we are to make sure its numbers continue to rise.

    I urge you to keep gray wolves protected under the Endangered Species Act.

  • Take the pledge for Energy Efficiency Day 2020

    The fastest and easiest way to protect the planet is to reduce the amount of energy we need by being more energy efficient. This means using less energy in our homes, building smarter and more efficiently, and improving appliance efficiency standards. It's a commonsense way to save energy, reduce water use and lower greenhouse gas emissions. I pledge to join the movement towards clean energy by reducing energy waste in my life.

  • Defend the Endangered Species Act

    We don't just want our most precious endangered species to survive. We want them to thrive. When it comes to protecting our nation's unique creatures, the Endangered Species Act (ESA) is the most successful conservation law in the books. From the bald eagle to the grizzly bear, we've seen time and time again that recovery for endangered species is entirely possible -- but only if we give them the protection they need.

    The proposal by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to change "critical habitat" classifications under the ESA would make it more difficult for these incredible species to recover and thrive. We must protect these creatures before they vanish from our world forever.

  • Help save the bees

    Dear California Department of Pesticide Regulation,

    Thank you for taking an important first step in limiting the dangers of neonicotinoids to pollinators. By taking action on neonics, the CDPR is contributing to protecting California's vital bee populations.

    I urge you to take additional measures to reaffirm California's position as a national leader on protecting bees from the impacts of deadly pesticides. I ask you to extend these regulations to include:

    1. Banning the consumer sale of neonicotinoids. Private citizens aren't typically aware of the impacts of neonicotinoids, and consequently over-apply the pesticides.

    2. Banning the pretreatment of seeds with neonicotinoids. Neonic coatings dissipate into soil and water, accumulating in our environment and posing a continual threat to nesting and foraging pollinators.

    Incorporating these additional measures to limit harmful pesticides will have a meaningful impact on bee survival.

    Sincerely,

  • Help put electric vehicle chargers in national parks

    Cars account for 60 percent of our transportation pollution. A zero-carbon transportation system means that every car on the road will need to run on clean, renewable energy by 2050. To get there, we need to build a nationwide network of charging stations so that charging across America is as convenient as finding a gas station is today.

    The Green Spaces, Green Vehicles Act would install charging stations at national parks across the U.S., so road tripping in an electric car can bring you to amazing natural wonders without the tailpipe pollution that fuels climate change.

  • Help save the Tongass National Forest

    The Tongass National Forest is an ancient wonder. Its old-growth trees have stood for 800 years, and provided critical habitat for wildlife. But the Trump administration has now overturned federal protections for the wildest parts of the forest, opening it to logging and roadbuilding.

    We can still prevent the destruction of the Tongass. Send a message to your U.S. senators today in support of the Roadless Area Conservation Act, which will permanently protect 58.5 million acres of wilderness, including more than half of the Tongass National Forest, from logging.

  • Tell Chevron: Don't drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    Dear Chevron,

    There are some places too special, too ecologically important, too sacred to drill in. The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is one of them.

    The coastal plain of the refuge is home to vulnerable denning polar bears, North America's largest caribou herd and millions of migratory birds from all 50 states and 6 continents.

    Any drilling in this American jewel would be a national tragedy, and a risk to your reputation.

    I ask that you pledge not to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

  • Tell your governor to take bold climate action today

    Governors have extensive power to reduce greenhouse gases and put their states on a path to clean energy -- often with just a stroke of the pen. Call on your governor to use that power to implement climate solutions today.

  • Tell your governor to save the bees

    Baby bees are being poisoned by dangerous pesticides that cause irreversible brain damage.

    As adults, this impairs bees' ability to forage for food and defend their hives, which contributes to declines in bee populations.

    Tell your governor to ban the worst uses of bee-killing neonics.

  • Become a Climate Defender and sign the pledge to take action

    The American West is on fire, East Coast cities are facing major flooding, and Southern states are being battered with hurricanes. The climate crisis is here, and we need our federal, state and local leaders to step up and take immediate and bold action to stop more burning of fossil fuels, speed the transition to clean and renewable energy, and give nature the time and space it needs to heal.

    I am signing up as a Climate Defender to add my voice to the thousands of others demanding change, and I pledge to take 10 actions over the next 10 weeks.

  • Tell your senators: We need climate-conscious transportation solutions

    The climate crisis is here. And right now, when it comes to greenhouse gas emissions, transportation is the biggest culprit.

    We need Congress to support policies that prioritize fixing and maintaining existing infrastructure before funding new projects, expand access to clean and efficient transit options, and put more electric vehicles on the road by building up charging stations.

    That's why we're calling on the Senate to include these policies in its transportation spending bill, currently under consideration.

  • Tell the EPA: Protect our air and our respiratory health from ozone pollution

    Subject: Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OAR-2018-0279

    I urge you to heed the recommendations of health experts and strengthen the existing protections on ozone pollution. Ozone exposure at current levels can cause inflammation of the airways, and a decrease in overall lung function. Air pollution, including ozone, is linked to health problems including respiratory illness, heart attack, stroke, cancer and mental health problems.

    We need stronger standards so that we can save lives and breathe clean, healthy air. That's why I'm calling on the EPA to strengthen ozone standards.

    Sincerely,

  • Let's a put solar panels on all new homes

    Every roof built without a solar panel is a missed opportunity. I support a solar homes policy in my state to install all new homes with solar panels, for healthier communities, cleaner air and a liveable planet for generations to come.

  • Tell Congress: Protect our oceans

    Rising ocean temperatures and other human impacts could doom entire marine ecosystems. The science is clear: Setting aside a certain percentage of our oceans as a sanctuary from drilling, fishing and other activities is a critical step towards addressing the extinction and biodiversity crises that threaten our oceans.

    The Thirty by Thirty Resolution to Save Nature would establish a nationwide goal of conserving 30 percent of the United States' land and oceans by 2030 to keep nature, and the climate, from its tipping point. Tell your U.S. representative to support the resolution today.

  • Call on your representative to ensure our drinking water is lead-free

    Lead is still getting in the drinking water of thousands of communities across America. That's why we need Congress to pass the Get the Lead Out Act, which sets a 10-year deadline for replacing lead service lines.

  • Help give bees a chance

    Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply.

    It's urgent we protect our bees. Tell your state legislators to restrict bee-killing pesticides.

  • We must block the Trump administration's methane rule

    The Trump administration just implemented a rule that lets oil and gas companies freely leak methane without reporting or repairing the leaks. What's worse: Methane leaks are one of the biggest contributors to global warming.

    We're calling on senators to block this dangerous rule before it can inflict irreversible harm to our climate. Will you join us?

  • Tell your representative: Support "solar strong" legislation

    "Solar strong" legislation would support first responders and boost renewable energy by requiring solar and battery backup systems on every fire station across the country. Tell your representative to support it.

  • Submit your comment: Protect endangered species from a dangerous new rule

    Docket No. NOAA_FRDOC_0001-5578

    U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service:

    The Trump administration's proposed change to the Endangered Species Act (ESA) would narrow the very meaning of "habitat" and have a disastrous effect on the very species the Act was created to protect.

    The new definition would make it harder to save vulnerable wildlife under the ESA through the restoration of historical habitat. At a time when species are dying off at an unprecedented rate, it simply makes no sense to weaken a law that has a 99 percent success rate in preventing the extinction of listed wildlife.

    I urge you to reject this proposed rule, and to let the ESA continue protecting the natural world.

    Sincerely,

  • Submit your comment to the Department of Energy: Don't go backwards on water and energy-saving standards for showerheads

    Now is not the time to go backwards on standards that reduce emissions and cut back on needless water and energy waste. I urge you to protect consumers and our planet by maintaining showerhead efficiency standards.

  • Tell Congress: Block oil and gas drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico

    Right now, Congress has a chance to block new offshore drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico and protect a huge swath of our coast from disruptive exploration and the threat of a catastrophic spill.

    Take action to protect our oceans: Tell your senators to support a moratorium on new offshore drilling in the eastern Gulf.

  • Tell the U.S. Senate: Support the Moving Forward Act

    The Moving Forward Act will help us combat climate change by taking on our country's largest contributor of global warming pollution emissions: the transportation sector.

    We can't solve global warming without changing how Americans get around. Tell the Senate to support the Moving Forward Act.

  • Protect our biggest ocean monument

    Hawaii's Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument is a national treasure. Established under the Bush administration and expanded by President Obama, it's one of the largest marine protected areas in the world, a priceless sanctuary to 7,000 species of marine creatures. A quarter of the wildlife it protects are unique to the Hawaiian Islands.

    But industry wants to open it to large-scale fishing, which would be disastrous for the monument's rich biodiversity and the sensitive species recovering in its critical habitat.

    Send a message to your senators telling them to protect this incredible place.

  • Tell the EPA: Incorporate climate science into flood planning at toxic Superfund sites

    More than 800 toxic Superfund sites in the U.S. could flood due to rising sea levels over the next 20 years and expose local communities to chemical contamination. But under the leadership of the Trump administration, the EPA isn't considering climate science when assessing and planning for flood risks in these hazardous areas. This means we're dangerously unprepared for floods and the havoc they could wreak on our communities.

    It is the EPA's responsibility to keep these hazardous sites from putting our health at risk. Tell EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler: Incorporate climate science into flood planning for toxic Superfund sites.

  • Save Our Orcas

    The population of Southern Resident orcas, a species of whales that lives off the West Coast, has dwindled to about 70 whales. A lack of Chinook salmon -- their food source -- is a primary factor in their decline. If we don't act now, our orcas could go extinct. That's why we're calling on our elected officials to develop a comprehensive plan to restore salmon and save our orcas.

  • Tell the U.S. Senate: Support the Moving Forward Act

    The Moving Forward Act will help us combat climate change by taking on our country's largest contributor of global warming pollution emissions: the transportation sector.

    We can't solve global warming without changing how Americans get around. Tell the Senate to support the Moving Forward Act.

  • Stop Arctic drilling to save polar bears

    The polar bears of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge are facing threats from all directions. Global warming is melting the sea ice they need to hunt -- and now, the Department of the Interior (DOI) is planning devastating oil and gas exploration on land where they den.

    Call on the Department of the Interior (DOI) to abandon its harmful and short-sighted plan to drill for oil in the priceless Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

  • Share your experiences taking action for 100 percent renewable energy!

    Have you taken action with your community to lead the transition to a renewable energy society? Whatever actions you've taken -- big or small -- we want to hear about them. Share your experience with us in the form below.

    We may choose to share these experiences with other members or on social media, but we won't share any of your contact information.

  • Tell your representative to support the SAVE Right Whales Act

    The first North Atlantic right whale calf of the 2019/2020 calving season is already dead -- a terrible blow to the 400 remaining right whales.

    The SAVE Right Whales Act is critical legislation drafted to protect this critically endangered species from fatal vessel strikes and fishing line entanglement.

    By calling on our representatives to support the SAVE Right Whales Act, we can take steps toward saving North Atlantic right whales from extinction.

  • Tell the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service: List monarch butterflies as endangered

    Monarch butterflies are important pollinators, but their population and habitat are being destroyed as a result of human activity and climate change. In the past year alone, the eastern monarch population has declined by a whopping 53 percent.

    If we act now, we can save these beautiful creatures by giving them the federal protection they need. Tell the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to list the monarch butterfly as endangered under the Endangered Species Act today.

  • Join One Million for 100% Renewable Energy

    With 100 percent renewable energy, we could power our society reliably without polluting our communities or leaving environmental devastation in our wake. But to make that vision a reality, we need to demonstrate the broad nationwide support for transitioning to a sustainable society.

    Add your voice and become one of One Million for 100% Renewable Energy to join a growing community of changemakers and take coordinated and strategic action to move our country and our planet to 100 percent.

  • Tell your representative to save the bees

    Bees had their worst summer on record, with beekeepers losing 43 percent of their hives in 2019.

    They're dying off due to multiple threats, including climate change, habitat loss, disease -- as well as the use of a class of pesticides called neonicotinoids.

    Tell your state representative to ban the worst uses of bee-killing pesticides today.

  • Tell the Senate: Get the lead out

    The U.S. House of Representatives has approved a major funding measure to get lead -- a known neurotoxin -- out of drinking water. Now, we need the Senate to pass the measure too.

  • Our beaches should be safe for swimming

    Each year, swimmers in the U.S. suffer from an estimated 57 million cases of waterborne illness. Stormwater runoff and sewage overflows are contaminating our beaches and putting swimmers' health at risk.

    We're calling on your senators to take action to fix outdated sewage systems and to prevent water pollution by investing in natural, green water infrastructure. Will you join us?

  • Our beaches should be safe for swimming

    We're calling on our senators to take action to fix outdated sewage systems and to prevent water pollution by investing in natural, green water infrastructure. Will you join us?

  • It's time to repeal one of our nation's worst energy laws

    HB6 has been called one of the worst energy policies in the country -- and now it's subject to corruption charges too. Let your representatives know that Ohioans care about clean energy, and it's time to repeal HB6.

  • Tell the Congress: No rocket fuel chemicals in drinking water

    A chemical that is commonly used in matches, fireworks, rocket propellants and signal flares has no business being in the water our children drink.

  • Tell Congress: Stop this reckless attempt to fast-track mining, pipelines and other destructive projects

    The Trump administration has moved to allow pipelines, mines and other destructive projects to skip environmental review and public input. Join us in calling on Congress to block this reckless order.

  • Call on President Trump to sign the Great American Outdoors Act

    Congress just passed the Great American Outdoors Act, which would permanently and fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund. Now, the bill is in President Trump's hands.

    Join Environment America and thousands of supporters like you in calling on President Trump to sign the Great American Outdoors Act into law. By raising our voices, we can demonstrate to the White House widespread support for our nation's best conservation tool.

  • Tell Congress: Protect our air from soot pollution

    As early as this week, Congress will be voting on measures that could improve our air quality. To make dirty air a thing of the past, join Environment America in calling on your representatives to support strengthening soot protections.

  • Protect our beaches

    Across the country, pollution is closing beaches and putting swimmers at risk of getting sick -- due in large part to stormwater runoff and sewage overflows. Tell Congress to protect our beaches by investing in water infrastructure that prevents this pollution.

  • Take action: No drilling near Chaco Canyon

    Docket number: 2020-04111

    Chaco Canyon is one of the most important cultural sites in the National Park System. It's also an International Dark Sky Park -- beloved by stargazers for its pristine dark skies full of constellations -- and a sanctuary for elk, bobcats, badgers, bats, lizards and other desert wildlife that thrive in the dark and away from development.

    More than 91 percent of the federal land around Chaco is already leased to oil and gas operations. And the development has already taken a toll on the health of the land and surrounding communities. So much methane has been released as a result of these operations that a methane cloud the size of Delaware looms overhead.

    We can't allow even more drilling on the doorstep of this priceless place. I oppose plans to expand drilling closer to Chaco Canyon, and urge the Bureau of Land Management to adopt a moratorium on oil and gas leasing on federal land within 10 miles of the park.

  • Tell Congress: Stop this reckless attempt to fast track mining, pipelines and other destructive projects

    The Trump administration has signed an executive order that will allow pipelines, mines and other destructive projects to skip environmental review and public input. Join us in calling on Congress to block this reckless order.

  • It's time to ban polystyrene foam in your state

    Polystyrene foam -- what most of us call styrofoam -- is a particularly destructive form of plastic pollution. It's time to put wildlife over waste and ban this harmful product. Send a message to your governor urging them to support a ban on polystyrene foam in your state.

  • Choose wildlife over waste

    Each year, Americans throw away millions of foam cups and take-out containers. Too often, this pollution ends up in our waterways, and eventually the ocean, where it can harm or even kill birds and marine animals such as turtles and whales.

    Nothing we use for a few minutes should pollute our environment for hundreds of years. Tell your legislators to support a ban on one of the worst types of plastic pollution: polystyrene foam cups and containers.

  • Tell your senators: Pass the Grand Canyon Centennial Protection Act

    The U.S. Senate has a chance to permanently protect more than 1 million acres of public land adjacent to the Grand Canyon from toxic uranium mining.

  • Tell Congress: Support America's public lands

    The U.S. Senate just passed the Great American Outdoors Act to fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which helps to preserve public lands and protect recreation areas. Now, it's the U.S. House of Representatives' turn. Call on your representative to support the Great American Outdoors Act today.

  • Tell Congress: Support America's public lands

    The U.S. Senate just passed the Great American Outdoors Act. This bill fully funds the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which preserves public lands and enhances recreation areas. Now, it's the U.S. House's turn. Call on your representative to support the Great American Outdoors Act today.

  • Tell your U.S. House representative: Keep the Tongass wild

    The Tongass National Forest is the world's largest remaining intact temperate rainforest, and it's home to more bears than people, as well as the largest concentration of nesting bald eagles in the world. All of this is at risk if roadbuilding, logging and mining invade the forest.

    Tell Congress to support the Roadless Area Conservation Act to keep the Tongass wild.

  • More Nature: 30 Percent by 2030 Resolution

    The wild places we love and need are under siege from oil drilling, overfishing and other threats. That's why we want to set a national target of protecting 30 percent of our land and 30 percent of our ocean by 2030.

  • Call on your U.S. representatives to take action on plastic pollution

    Nothing we use for a few minutes should be allowed to pollute our lakes, rivers and oceans for hundreds of years. Urge your federal representatives to support the Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act, which would ban the worst single-use plastics and place a moratorium on new plastic-producing facilities.

  • Tell Congress to support these vital clean energy programs

    Renewable energy is at a critical moment. To build a sustainable society and leave dirty, dangerous fossil fuels in the past, we need to expand and update clean energy tax incentives. Join us in asking Congress to go big on clean energy for a brighter, healthier future.

  • Tell Congress: Protect the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument

    President Trump is rolling back protections for the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument. We need to stand up to protect this ocean treasure.

  • Protect the Chumash ocean sanctuary

    Docket Number: NOAA-NOS-2020-0063

    The coastal waters included in the proposed Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary (CHNMS) are a priceless ocean wonder. There's so much in this area that must be protected for generations to come. The proposed sanctuary is home to rich cultural and historical sites. It also protects rare and endangered wildlife, like sea otters. And it features lovely stretches of beach that families can enjoy together. I strongly urge you to extend the Chumash sanctuary nomination for another five years.

  • Tell the U.S. Senate: Support the Great American Outdoors Act

    Our best program to help create and maintain so many of our beloved outdoor spaces is consistently underfunded. That's why we're calling for the passage of the Great American Outdoors Act.

  • Add your voice to defend solar rights

    Over 2.2 million families and 100,000 businesses have already invested tens of billions of their own dollars in energy independence. The petition recently filed by the New England Ratepayers Association (NERA) would allow a federal takeover of my solar rights. For almost forty years, states have appropriately had jurisdiction over solar rights. I urge you not to take up this petition and let states make their own energy choices.

    Local solar helps everyone save by reducing transmission costs, providing local peak energy resources, bolstering grid resilience, and more. We cannot afford to lose those savings now, during a global financial crisis, or in the future. I support my state's right to implement local clean energy policies, and I urge you not to take up the New England Ratepayers Association's petition to hand over this right and endanger important energy policies across the country.

  • Support stronger energy efficiency standards

    If we're going to build a cleaner, more sustainable society, we need to tap into the cleanest form of energy: The energy we don't use in the first place. I support standards that require appliances and other commonly used products and machinery to be more energy efficient, for the good of our communities and our planet.

  • Tell Congress: No bailout for plastic polluters

    Every year, we produce more than 300 million tons of plastic waste -- roughly 80 percent of which accumulates in landfills and our environment. Our taxpayer dollars shouldn't go toward encouraging the production of plastic waste. Call on Congress to oppose a bailout for the plastics industry.

  • Tell your governor: Enforce environmental protections

    Under a new Trump administration policy, the Environmental Protection Agency is no longer enforcing key environmental protections -- which is bad news for our air, water and health. Tell your governor to enforce these protections in your state.

  • Tell Procter & Gamble: Protect the Boreal Forest

    Dear CEO David Taylor,

    The Canadian boreal forest stores tons of carbon to help prevent climate change, and provides a home to irreplaceable wildlife -- but tree harvest for tissue production is contributing to the destruction of this precious ecosystem.

    The boreal is too important to destroy, especially since less damaging alternatives to virgin wood fiber are available. I strongly urge you to use forest-free materials such as post-consumer recycled paper, bamboo, and wheat straw in your tissue products, and to ensure that 50% of your tissue materials are forest-free.

  • Tell Congress: Repeal the Dirty Water Rule

    The Dirty Water Rule wipes out protections for wetlands, streams and headwaters that provide drinking water for millions of Americans -- and it's even opposed by the EPA's own science advisers.

    Tell Congress to repeal the Dirty Water Rule.

  • Tell the Bureau of Land Management: Protect our lands from drilling

    At a time when we need more nature, more beauty in our lives, the Interior Department is considering more than 230 nominations for oil and gas leases -- covering more than 150,000 acres in southern Utah -- that would bring drilling operations within mere miles of some of the nation's most precious protected areas.

    If oil and gas drilling is permitted here, industrial lighting and methane flaring would interrupt the expansive, star-filled night sky that the parks are known for. The pristine air quality and hundred-mile views would be disrupted. The stillness of the landscape would forever vanish.

    We can't let them trade these precious lands for a little more oil. Tell the BLM to protect these lands from drilling and reject the proposals for nominations of lease sales on parcels just outside of our national parks.

  • Tell the EPA: Protect our air and our respiratory health from deadly soot pollution

    Days after a Harvard study found that soot pollution increases the risk of death from COVID-19, the Trump administration ignored its own experts and decided not to rein in this deadly pollutant. Submit a public comment today calling on the EPA to protect our air.

  • Tell the EPA: Ban the worst uses of bee-killing pesticides

    Docket # EPA-HQ-OPP-2008-0844-1608

    Bumblebees are in trouble. In a new study, scientists found that baby bumblebees' brain functions are impaired by food contaminated with neonicotinoids.

    This is just the latest research documenting a link between neonicotinoids and colony collapse. To protect our most important pollinators, I urge you to ban the worst uses of all neonicotinoids, including all yard, garden and landscaping uses of neonicotinoids and the use of neonicotinoid-coated seeds in any setting.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Congress: The EPA must enforce key environmental protections

    President Trump's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is no longer going to enforce key environmental protections. Congress must exercise its oversight authority to ensure the EPA resumes protecting our air and water.

  • Make our country safe for monarch butterflies

    Monarch butterflies, easily recognized by their orange and black wings, are a keystone species known for their remarkable migration up and down North America. But since 1990, about 970 million monarchs have vanished from the skies they once majestically traveled from Mexico to the United States and Canada each spring.

    Planting milkweed on public lands -- along highways, in wildlife refuges, on public campuses and more -- is a concrete action we can take right now to support monarch butterflies.

    Tell the governor to make our state monarch-friendly by planting milkweed and nectar plants on state lands.

  • Tell Interior Secretary David Bernhardt: Don't bail out the oil and gas industry

    So far, the Interior Department has said it will not reward blanket royalty releases to the entire oil and gas industry, but individual companies are able to apply for royalty relief on a case-by-case basis. We need to make sure the Interior Department holds strong and opposes all royalty relief.

    We shouldn't be bailing out the fossil fuel industry to drill on public lands -- we should be turning to clean, green renewable energy. Tell Interior Secretary David Bernhardt to continue to oppose oil and gas royalty cuts.

  • Tell the Bureau of Land Management: Protect our lands from drilling

    At a time when we need more nature, more beauty in our lives, the Interior Department is considering more than 230 nominations for oil and gas leases -- covering more than 150,000 acres in southern Utah -- that would bring drilling operations within mere miles of some of the nation's most precious protected areas.

    We can't let them trade these precious lands for a little more oil. Tell the BLM to protect these lands from drilling and reject the proposals for nominations of lease sales on parcels just outside of our national parks.

  • Support our public lands

    Whether it's our local parks, hiking trails, state parks, national forests or national parks, America's public lands are beautiful and make our lives richer.

    Sheltering in place has reminded so many of us that these places are irreplaceable and that we need to invest in them.

    Please urge Congress to do all it can to support America's outdoor landscape.

  • Stand up for science

    EPA-HQ-OA-2018-0259; FRL-10004-72-ORD

    The EPA's proposed rule would require the agency to look only at studies where the underlying data is publicly available, effectively blocking the use of long-standing, landmark studies on the harmful effects of air pollution and pesticide exposure -- which often involve confidential personal or medical histories or proprietary information. These restrictions would make it harder for the EPA to protect Americans from toxic chemicals, air pollution, drinking water pollution, and other health risks. I strongly urge you to reject this rule.

  • Tell the EPA: Ban the worst uses of bee-killing pesticides

    Docket # EPA-HQ-OPP-2008-0844-1608

    President Trump's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is no longer going to enforce our nation's key environmental protections. Congress must exercise its oversight authority to ensure the EPA resumes protecting our air and water.

  • Tell BlackRock: Stand up for climate action

    BlackRock CEO Larry Fink,

    I applaud your calls for investor action to combat climate change, but I urge you to make sure that sentiment translates to action. In 2019, BlackRock only supported 11.5 percent of shareholder resolutions on climate change, lagging behind its peers and falling short of your stated commitment to confronting the climate crisis. As the nation's largest investment management company, BlackRock can help lead a shift toward business practices that don't harm the climate. I urge you to use that power.

  • Participate in our Nifty 50 Activities

    We hope you enjoyed our guide for 50 environmental activities kids can do at home, and we'd love to hear your stories! Share your stories and pictures of what your family did below, along with any more ideas for fun environmental activities:

  • Help give bees a chance

    Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply.

    It's urgent we protect our bees. Tell your state Legislature to restrict bee-killing pesticides.

  • Fund our nation's best conservation and recreation program

    This would reverse the Trump administration's recent proposal to wipe out almost all funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) -- but the president has since tweeted his support, and there's growing momentum in Congress.

    The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) funds thousands of amazing places across the country, from national treasures like the Grand Canyon to beloved local ballfields and parks. We need to tell Congress to fully fund this vital conservation program now.

  • Take a stand against strip mining in the Cumberland Plateau

    We can't open thousands of acres of unique mountaintops to coal strip mining -- especially when we should be shifting toward clean, renewable energy instead. Take a stand against destructive coal mining practices along the protected ridgelines of the Cumberland Plateau.

  • Stop this bailout of dirty fracking companies

    Fracking is dirty and dangerous -- but the Trump administration is preparing to deliver fracking companies a massive taxpayer bailout, and use the coronavirus as its excuse. Our taxpayer dollars shouldn't fuel fracking that harms our communities. Call on Congress to block this bailout.

  • Save the Migratory Bird Treaty Act

    Docket No. FWS-HQ-MB-2018-0090

    The Migratory Bird Treaty Act has been the cornerstone of bird conservation in our country for a century. It is the strongest tool we have to protect birds at a time when bird populations are plummeting across North America. I support a strong Migratory Bird Treaty Act that holds companies accountable for incidental take of birds.

  • Put wildlife over waste in our country

    Each year, Americans throw away millions of foam cups and take-out containers. Too often, this pollution ends up in our waterways, and eventually the ocean, where it can harm or even kill birds and marine animals such as turtles and whales.

    Nothing we use for a few minutes should pollute our environment for hundreds of years. Tell your legislators to support a ban on one of the worst types of plastic pollution: polystyrene foam cups and containers.

  • Submit your comment to support the Transportation and Climate Initiative

    The Transportation and Climate Initiative is an opportunity for our state to reduce fossil fuel emissions and invest in clean transportation, like electric cars and buses, charging infrastructure, sidewalks/bike lanes, and regional rail.

    I urge you to move forward with TCI and require that the revenue generated by the program is used to expand clean transportation. There are simply too many cars on the road contributing to our warming climate, not to mention our asthma rates and traffic congestion problems.

    In particular, I'd like TCI funds to go towards zero-emission electric buses, EV charging infrastructure, expanded and improved bike lanes and regional rail, as well as tax rebates toward private EV ownership.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell your governor to support electric bus funding

    Transitioning to electric buses is a concrete step we can take toward tackling the largest source of climate-changing pollution: transportation. Cities around the country are replacing their dirty diesel fleets with electric buses -- it's time for our state to do the same.

  • Send a message to save the Boundary Waters

    Minnesota's Boundary Waters is a pristine forest paradise -- but toxic mining pollution could destroy it forever. Luckily, this legislation will permanently ban destructive copper sulfide ore mining in the Boundary Waters ecosystem. Tell your U.S. representative to support the Boundary Waters Wilderness Protection and Pollution Prevention Act.

  • Tell Congress: Pass the Extinction Prevention Act

    Dear Representative and Senators,

    We're losing species at an alarming rate, and scientists warn we're nearing another mass extinction. But President Trump has rolled back vital protections for threatened species -- and weakened the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

    The ESA has a 99 percent success rate saving species from extinction. I urge you to pass the Extinction Prevention Act to restore the ESA.

  • Tell Congress: It's time to move our country beyond plastic

    New legislation contains sweeping measures to protect waterways and wildlife from plastic waste -- including banning the worst single-use plastics and placing a moratorium on new plastic-producing facilities. Urge your federal representatives to support this bill today.

  • Urge Costco to help stop the destruction of Canada's boreal forest

    Canada's boreal forest is the world's largest intact forest ecosystem -- but it's shrinking fast as we chop down a million acres of ancient trees per year to make throwaway tissue products such as toilet paper and paper towels. Costco can help stop the destruction by only selling tissue products made from recycled materials. I urge Costco to 1) make its Kirkland Signature tissue products from at least 50 percent recycled materials, and 2) refuse to sell other brands of tissue products until they implement the same change.

  • Fund our nation's best conservation and recreation program

    The Trump administration's proposed budget just wiped out almost all of the funding for our country's greatest conservation and recreation program.

    The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) funds thousands of amazing places across the country, from national treasures like the Grand Canyon to beloved local ballfields and parks. We need to tell Congress to fully fund this vital conservation program now.

  • Your voice can make waves for clean water

    A resolution was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives condemning rollbacks to the Clean Water Act that make our water less safe. Call on your representative to support this resolution and protect U.S. waterways.

  • Tell your U.S. senators: Protect our oceans

    Marine life is suffering, ocean temperatures are rising, we're losing entire marine ecosystems: Our oceans need help.

    A new resolution that emphasizes the importance of conservation is the start to saving our oceans.

    The Thirty by Thirty Resolution to Save Nature would establish a nationwide goal of conserving 30 percent of the United States' land and oceans by 2030, to keep nature, and the climate, from its tipping point. Tell your U.S. senators to support the resolution today.

  • Call on your U.S. representative to stand up for clean water by supporting a moratorium on factory farms

    Huge volumes of manure from factory farms are winding up in our waterways, leading to fish kills, dead zones and toxic algae. With our waterways and wildlife at risk, it's critical that Congress halt the expansion of these polluting facilities.

  • Protect Communities from Explosive Gas Trains

    Re: Docket Number PHMSA-2018-0025 (HM-264)

    As a concerned citizen, I'm writing to oppose your proposal to open the door and allow the transportation of dangerous liquified natural gas (LNG) by rail. Shipping explosive gas through our neighborhoods and densely populated communities is a disaster waiting to happen. This proposal is reckless and exposes people and the environment to a greater potential for harm.

    Instead, America needs to get off of dangerous and dirty fossil fuels as soon as possible to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell your U.S senators: speak up for the clean car standards

    Transportation is the largest source of global warming pollution in America. Reducing emissions from cars and trucks is critical, but President Donald Trump and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler are weakening the federal Clean Car Standards. It's a dangerous plan that goes against the will and well-being of the American people, increases air pollution in our communities and will lead to even more dire impacts from climate change.

    Tell your senators to stand up to the Trump administration and support strong clean car standards.

  • Stand up for our country's land

    The Land and Water Conservation Fund is one of our country's greatest conservation programs, yet until it was put at risk, most Americans had never heard of it. LWCF has protected 2.37 million acres of land across the country, but it won't be effective if it's underfunded. Tell your governor to call for LWCF to be fully funded.

  • Tell the White House Council on Environmental Quality: Don't weaken NEPA

    Docket ID No. CEQ-2019-0003

    I oppose this update to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). These protections serve as a key tool for assuring the federal government acts as a responsible trustee for future generations. Without them, our environment will be at risk of lasting damage because our government will no longer have to look before it leaps. NEPA is good policy, and it's wrong to weaken it.

  • Tell Interior Secretary David Bernhardt to stop seismic blasting from harming marine wildlife

    Seismic blasting will have detrimental effects on thousands of dolphins, whales, turtles and more off of the Atlantic Coast -- particularly the North Atlantic right whales, one of the world's most endangered species. Tell Interior Secretary David Bernhardt to prevent this disruptive practice from invading the Atlantic.

  • Tell the EPA: Get the lead out of drinking water

    Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OW-2017-0300

    EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler:

    I am writing to urge the EPA to require the replacement of all lead service lines in the next 10 years or less, as part of the agency's update to the Lead and Copper Rule.

    Lead is a potent neurotoxin that can have permanent, lifelong negative health impacts, especially in children. And yet, we have an estimated 6 to 10 million pipes made of lead that bring water into our homes. These lead service lines are a huge source of contamination of our drinking water.

    That is why experts have been calling for the full replacement of these toxic pipes as soon as possible.

    After decades of delay, this update of the Lead and Copper Rule is the EPA's historic opportunity to "get the lead out" and keep our drinking water safe. Please order the replacement of all lead service lines as soon as possible.

    Sincerely,

  • Join One Million for 100% Renewable Energy

    With 100 percent renewable energy, we could power our society reliably without polluting our communities or leaving environmental devastation in our wake. But to make that vision a reality, we need to demonstrate the broad nationwide support for transitioning to a sustainable society. Add your voice and become one of One Million for 100% Renewable Energy to join a growing community of changemakers and take coordinated and strategic action to move our country and our planet to 100 percent.

  • Tell your U.S. senators: Protect our drinking water from toxic PFAS chemicals

    A bipartisan bill to protect our drinking water from toxic PFAS chemicals has passed the House. Now it's the Senate's turn to act.

  • Tell your state attorney general to protect Arctic wildlife

    Dear Attorney General,

    If there's anywhere in the world that should be safe for wildlife, you'd expect it to be our wildlife refuges.

    But in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, the wildlife that rely on it are in danger as the Trump administration moves to open the land to oil drilling. Wildlife refuges should be just that -- areas where animals can roam free, protected from human threats. If the Trump administration is successful in opening the coastal plain to oil drilling, there could be irreversible damage for the populations of birds, bears and caribou that depend on the refuge.

    I urge you to sue the Trump administration if it moves forward with it's reckless, slapdash proposal to open the entirety of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge's coastal plain to drilling.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell the EPA: Clean up Superfund sites

    The Trump administration has caused the biggest backlog of unfunded Superfund projects in the last 15 years -- almost three times as many that were stalled during the previous administration.

    Projects to clean up sites such as abandoned mines discharging heavy metals and arsenic, and a defunct dry cleaner spewing toxic solvents are ready to go, except for their funding.

    Tell EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler: Clean up toxic Superfund sites.

  • Thank your U.S. House representative for acting on climate

    The 100% Clean Economy Act of 2019 sets a nationwide goal of reaching net zero climate pollution by 2050, and directs all federal agencies to make a plan to reach that target. That means replacing dirty energy with clean sources like solar and wind in all parts of our economy, including manufacturing, transportation, and power plants.

    The 165 representatives who signed on to this bill have demonstrated that they understand the gravity and urgency of climate change. Thank your U.S. House representative for standing up for clean energy and a stable climate.

  • Tell your legislators: Put wildlife over waste

    Each year, Americans throw away millions of foam cups and take-out boxes. Too often, this pollution ends up in the ocean, where it can harm or even kill birds and marine animals such as turtles and whales.

    Keeping our drinks hot or cold isn't worth polluting our environment for hundreds of years. Tell your legislators to support a ban on foam cups and boxes made of polystyrene to reduce pollution in our oceans and protect wildlife.

  • Add your name: Ask NOAA to protect the Florida Keys

    Re: Docket Number NOAA-NOS-2019-0094

    The Florida Keys are home to amazing marine life. From coral gardens and seagrass meadows to mangroves and sandbars, the unique habitats protected by the Sanctuary are home to some of our most treasured and endangered marine animals. Restoring these habitats to health will be crucial to helping dolphins, manatees, sea turtles and other animals survive and thrive in an ocean threatened by climate change.

    That's why I urge you to take action to protect the largest number of habitats in the Florida Keys and the largest amount of our ocean and ocean life. By creating more marine zones in the Sanctuary and taking the most protective measures necessary, we can ensure the long-lasting survival of these amazing habitats and their marine life.

    Sincerely,

  • Take action to stop PFAS from poisoning our water

  • Tell the U.S. Senate: Pass the Grand Canyon Centennial Protection Act

    The U.S. House of Representatives voted to protect the Grand Canyon, and now it's the Senate's turn. The Grand Canyon Centennial Protection Act would permanently protect more than 1 million acres of public land adjacent to the Grand Canyon from toxic uranium mining.

  • Tell the EPA: Get the lead out of drinking water

    Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OW-2017-0300

    EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler:

    I am writing to urge the EPA to require the replacement of all lead service lines in the next 10 years or less, as part of the agency's update to the Lead and Copper Rule.

    Lead is a potent neurotoxin that can have permanent, lifelong negative health impacts, especially in children. And yet, we have an estimated 6 to 10 million pipes made of lead that bring water into our homes. These lead service lines are a huge source of contamination of our drinking water.

    That is why experts have been calling for the full replacement of these toxic pipes as soon as possible.

    After decades of delay, this update of the Lead and Copper Rule is the EPA's historic opportunity to "get the lead out" and keep our drinking water safe. Please order the replacement of all lead service lines as soon as possible.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Congress: Act on plastic pollution

    Every day, people are throwing away tons of single-use cups, containers and other plastic "stuff." All this waste clogs our landfills, trashes our parks, and washes into our rivers and oceans, where it can harm wildlife.

    Nothing we use for a few minutes should be allowed to pollute our oceans and rivers and threaten wildlife for centuries. Send a message to your federal legislators urging them to address our plastic pollution crisis.

  • Tell the U.S. Forest Service: Keep the Tongass wild

    The Trump administration has released its plan to open the Tongass National Forest up to logging, road building and other destructive development, and we have until Dec. 16 to submit public comments on the plan. Tell the U.S. Forest Service to keep the Tongass wild.

  • Tell Congress: Pass the Protect America's Wildlife and Fish in Need of Conservation Act of 2019

    Dear Representative and Senators,

    We're losing species at an alarming rate, and scientists warn we're nearing another mass extinction. But President Trump has rolled back vital protections for threatened species -- and weakened the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

    The ESA has a 99 percent success rate saving species from extinction. I urge you to pass the Protect America's Wildlife and Fish in Need of Conservation Act of 2019 to restore the ESA.

  • Tell your senators: Save Chaco Canyon

    Chaco Canyon is one of the most important cultural sites in the National Park System. Oil and gas operations would ruin everything that makes the park so special. The U.S. House just passed the Chaco Cultural Heritage Area Protection Act, which would permanently protect lands within a 10-mile radius around the park from oil and gas extraction. Now, we need the Senate to do the same.

    Tell the Senate to protect Chaco Canyon.

  • Healthier Farming can Build a Healthier Planet

    The damage from the volatile pesticide dicamba was worse this year than ever before. Meanwhile, neonicotinoid pesticides are a major culprit behind bird and bee population declines. It's time to rethink the way we farm and build a healthier future. Call on your legislators to fund programs that help farmers diversify their crops and reduce chemical use.

  • Tell Congress to support clean energy incentives

    By building on recent clean energy progress and taking it to the next level, we can stop polluting our communities and planet with dirty energy sources and make real strides in tackling the climate crisis. Tell your representatives and senators to expand their support for clean energy incentives.

  • Protect our drinking water from toxic PFAS

    We should be able to put out fires safely and effectively without putting our lives and our environment at risk from toxic PFAS chemicals -- especially when PFAS-free alternatives already exist. Tell Congress to require the U.S. military to stop using PFAS foams by 2023.

  • Tell the U.S. House of Representatives: Protect Chaco Canyon from oil and gas drilling

    As early as this week, the U.S. House of Representatives will be voting on the Chaco Cultural Heritage Area Protection Act. Urge your representative to permanently protect this special park from oil and gas drilling.

  • Tell the U.S. Forest Service: Keep the Tongass wild

    The Trump administration has released its plan to open the Tongass National Forest up to logging, road building and other destructive development, and we have until Dec. 17 to submit public comments on the plan. Tell the U.S. Forest Service to keep the Tongass wild.

  • Tell Congress: Support the SAVE Right Whales Act

    The death toll of North Atlantic right whales has risen to 10 this year alone, leaving just about 400 right whales surviving in the wild. And they're not dying of natural causes, but at the hands of humans.

    Tell Congress to take action to protect these whales and support the SAVE Right Whales Act.

  • Tell the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service: Protect the monarch butterfly

    I'm writing to urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to list monarch butterflies as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. We've lost 970 million monarch butterflies since their peak in the 1990s, and researchers have estimated that the North American monarch population stands a 72 percent chance of going extinct in the next 20 years if the current trend isn't reversed. It's time to list the monarch as threatened, granting the species critical protections under the Endangered Species Act.

  • Tell the U.S. House of Representatives: Support the Grand Canyon Centennial Protection Act

    The U.S. House is scheduled to vote on a bill, which, if passed, would permanently protect more than 1 million acres of public land adjacent to the Grand Canyon from toxic uranium mining.

  • Tell your representative: Stand up for clean cars

    The Trump administration finalized a plan to rescind California's authority to set stronger car pollution standards than the federal government.

    Thirteen other states have already adopted the California auto emissions standards, and several leading automakers have agreed to follow them as well. We should be setting stronger national emissions standards, not taking away states' rights to set their own. Tell your representative to speak out in defense of the Clean Car standards.

  • Healthier Farming can Build a Healthier Planet

    The damage from the volatile pesticide dicamba was worse this year than ever before. Meanwhile, neonicotinoid pesticides are a major culprit behind bird and bee population declines. It's time to rethink the way we farm and build a healthier future. Call on your legislators to fund programs that help farmers diversify their crops and reduce chemical use.

  • Tell the EPA: Stop the deadly tide of plastic pollution

    Every year, over 250,000 tons of plastic pellets spill into the environment. The Clean Water Act is meant to protect our waterways from this kind of harmful pollution -- but the current regulations governing plastic are decades old. I strongly urge you to set new restrictions on plastic pollution from industrial plants to protect our environment and wildlife.

    Sincerely,

  • CALL ON YOUR SENATORS TO SUPPORT THE TRANSITION TO ELECTRIC SCHOOL BUSES

    Over 25 million American children, as well as thousands of school bus drivers, breathe polluted air on traditional diesel yellow school buses every day. Diesel pollution stunts the growth of kids' lungs and worsens asthma symptoms, and has also been linked to poorer academic performance.

    Fortunately, there is a better solution: electric school buses. Electric buses don't emit any tailpipe pollution, eliminating exhaust that is linked to asthma attacks, respiratory illness,cancer, and climate change. While electric school buses are available, school districts often need help financing the switch away from diesel. The Clean School Bus Act will help school districts get the resources they need to ensure that every child has healthy air to breathe and a safe ride to school.

    Tell your senator to co-sponsor the Clean School Bus Act to help bring electric school buses to your community.

  • Tell the U.S. Senate: Support a ban on new offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico

    A bill to ban new offshore drilling in the eastern Gulf coast just passed the U.S. House. This legislation is critical to defending marine ecosystems and coastal communities from oil and gas drilling. Urge your U.S. senators to support the ban today.

  • Tell your U.S. senators: Stop offshore drilling

    Offshore drilling means oil spills, and oil spills can mean death or serious harm for marine wildlife. The U.S. House of Representatives has passed a bill that would block drilling off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts for good, and now it's the Senate's turn. Tell your senators to stand up for sea otters, harbor seals, whales and other ocean wildlife and end the threat of offshore drilling.

  • Tell your governor to help offshore wind power get over the final big hurdle.

    The Interior Department is slowing down offshore wind energy that's key to dealing with climate change. You can help speed things up.

  • Tell Interior Secretary Bernhardt to get offshore wind power over the final big hurdle

    The Interior Department is slowing down offshore wind energy that's key to dealing with climate change. You can help speed things up.

  • Tell your senators: Stand up for Arctic wildlife

    The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the polar bears, caribou and migratory birds that call it home are under threat. Unless the U.S. Senate follows the lead of the House and protects this area, our nation's largest wildlife refuge will soon be opened to oil and gas drilling. Urge your senators to take action to protect the Arctic Refuge's coastal plain.

  • Tell your representative: Stand up for clean cars

    The Trump administration is announcing a plan to rescind California's authority to impose stronger car pollution regulations than the federal government.

    Thirteen other states have already adopted the California's auto emissions standards and several leading automakers have agreed to follow California's standards. We should be setting stronger national emission standards, not taking away states' rights to set their own. Tell your representative to speak out in defense of the Clean Car standards.

  • No Bees, No Food

    Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply.

    It's urgent we protect our bees. Ask your governor to restrict bee-killing pesticides.

  • Let's get the Plastic Pollution Reduction Act over the finish line

    There's just one step left before the historic Plastic Pollution Reduction Act becomes law in California. Let's let Governor Newsom know that the whole state is behind him on this bill.

  • Tell Congress: Permanently fund land and water conservation

    Give our parks and other public lands the funding they deserve. Tell your U.S. House representative to permanently fund land and water conservation.

  • Tell your U.S. senators: Pass the Roadless Area Conservation Act

    The Trump administration just announced plans to open up more than half of Alaska's pristine Tongass National Forest to destructive mining and logging. The Roadless Area Conservation Act of 2019 would protect the Tongass and all 58.5 million acres of roadless national forest in 39 states -- permanently. Tell your senators: Pass the Roadless Area Conservation Act.

  • Tell the House of Representatives to Restore Protections for the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the polar bears, caribou and migratory birds that call it home are under threat. Unless Congress passes the Arctic Cultural and Coastal Plain Protection Act, the largest wildlife refuge will soon be opened to oil and gas drilling. Urge your U.S. representative to support this legislation and conserve the Arctic Refuge's coastal plain for generations to come.

  • Tell your governor: Make our state monarch-friendly

    Monarch butterflies are in steep decline. The population that overwinters in the U.S. hit a record low in 2018. Tell the governor to make your state monarch-friendly by planting milkweed and nectar plants on public lands.

  • Tell the U.S. Department of Agriculture: Stand up for bee research

    Secretary Sonny Perdue,

    I urge you to resume data collection for the annual Honey Bee Colonies report. Bees are dying off at unsustainable rates -- with dire consequences for our environment and food supply. We should be doing more, not less, to study bee populations so we can solve this crisis. Please direct the U.S. Department of Agriculture to continue its honey bee research.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Congress: Act on plastic pollution

    Every day, Americans throw away tons of single-use plastic bags, cups, containers and other "stuff." Among the worst forms of plastic pollution is polystyrene foam, which never degrades and far too often ends up in our waterways and oceans where it can harm wildlife.

    It's time to put wildlife over waste and end our reliance on single-use plastics.

  • Add Your Name: Oppose the Trump Administration's Plan to Weaken Methane Regulations

    I strongly urge you not to finalize proposed rollbacks to the federal regulation of methane leaks from the oil and gas sector.

    The current rule that fossil fuel companies install technology to inspect for and fix methane leaks is critical to preventing increased emissions. The increased emissions that will result from weakened regulations will accelerate global warming and permanently damage our environment. It is crucial that we limit methane emissions, not leak hundreds of thousands of tons into the atmosphere.

  • Tell Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to produce less polluting vehicles.

    The Trump administration is finalizing rollbacks to fuel efficiency and emissions standards. Under this proposal, annual pollution will reach the equivalent of 43 coal-fired power plants by 2040. That's why we're calling on automakers to take action.

    Ford, Honda, Volkswagen and BMW of North America have reached a deal with the California Air Resources Board to produce fleets with improved fuel efficiency -- despite rollbacks. Tell Fiat Chrysler to join this agreement and commit to protecting our environment.

  • Tell ADM to stop deforestation and save tropical forests

    Tropical forests are often destroyed to make way for soybeans traded and sold by the world's largest agricultural companies. To save forests, we need agricultural companies to commit to sustainability.

    With the Amazon on fire, and 40 football fields worth of tropical forests being lost to deforestation every single minute worldwide, there's not a moment to lose. Call on ADM -- a large, U.S.-based agricultural firm -- to commit to zero deforestation in all of its supply chains by 2020.

  • Tell your governor to support 100 percent renewable energy in your state

    Renewables are on the rise, and this progress should give us the confidence that we can take it to the next level -- because we can and should be doing so much more as a nation to reach a 100 percent renewable energy future. Send a note to your governor supporting 100 percent renewable energy today.

  • Speak up for Bristol Bay

    The Trump administration is fast-tracking a mining project that would cause a "complete loss" of habitat in Alaska's Bristol Bay. Join us in calling on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to hold the administration accountable.

  • Tell your senator: Protect species, support the Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act

    The Trump administration's rollbacks to the Endangered Species Act are devastating. But it's not too late for endangered species. Call on Congress to save wildlife by supporting the Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act.

  • Stand up for the North Atlantic right whale

    North Atlantic right whales are one of the world's most endangered species -- and human activity is the biggest threat to their survival. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) plans to update protections aimed at keeping right whales safe from human threats, and it is requesting comments from the public. Tell NOAA: Act immediately to help save the North Atlantic right whale.

  • Tell your governor: Help save our Clean Car Standards

    The Trump administration's Clean Car Standards rollback puts our climate at risk. Across the country, 24 governors are standing up for clean cars and lower emissions. Call on your governor to do everything possible to protect the Clean Car Standards.

  • Tell Congress: Protect America's beaches

    Across the country, more than 2,500 coastal and Great Lakes beach sites had unsafe levels of bacterial pollution last year -- due in part to stormwater runoff and sewage overflows. But water utilities are lobbying Congress right now to allow sewage plants to keep polluting at the same level for years to come. We can't let that happen. Tell your representative to protect our beaches.

  • Tell the U.S. Department of Agriculture: Stand up for bee research

    Secretary Sonny Perdue,

    I urge you to resume data collection for the annual Honey Bee Colonies report. Bees are dying off at unsustainable rates -- with dire consequences for our environment and food supply. We should be doing more, not less, to study bee populations so we can solve this crisis. Please direct the U.S. Department of Agriculture to continue its honey bee research.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell your governor to stand up for conservation in your state

    We're calling on America's governors to stand up for a program that makes our country beautiful: the Land and Water Conservation Fund.

  • Tell Congress to support clean energy incentives

    By going big on renewable energy, we can stop polluting our communities and planet with dirty energy sources and make real strides in tackling the climate crisis. Tell your representatives to expand their support for clean energy incentives.

  • Tell the House of Representatives to Restore Protections to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska is one of the most pristine and wild public lands in the United State. Unfortunately, the 2017 Tax bill opened the Arctic Refuge for oil and gas development, reversing decades of keeping the area protected. Drilling for oil and gas in the Refuge would devastate the habitats of dozens of species, including caribou, musk oxen, polar bears, snowy owls, and many more, and ruin a spectacular wilderness area. The Arctic Cultural and Coastal Plain Protection Act (HR 1146) would restore the protections the coastal plain used to have, once again prohibiting oil and gas development, and protecting this irreplaceable wilderness area.

  • Tell Congress: Protect America's beaches

    Across the country, bacterial pollution at our beaches is putting swimmers at risk of getting sick -- due in large part to stormwater runoff and sewage overflows. Tell your representative to protect our beaches - by investing in water infrastructure that prevents this pollution.

  • Tell your governor: Be a climate leader

    The Trump administration's Dirty Power Plan takes us in the wrong direction. Join the call for climate action in your state.

  • Join the call for renewable electricity

    The Renewable Electricity Standard (RES) Act of 2019 would put the U.S. on track for at least 50 percent renewable electricity by 2035. Tell your senators to pass the RES Act.

  • Tell Congress: Vote YES to protect drinking water

    Congress is considering a bill to protect our drinking water from a set of toxic chemicals called PFAS. Tell your representative to vote YES to protect safe drinking water.

  • Stand up for climate science

    Dear United States Geological Survey Director James Reilly,

    I oppose the decision to restrict USGS climate studies to models that only project through 2040. Because the most serious impacts of climate change will occur after that year, failing to project through the end of the century will cripple our ability to deal with the effects of climate change as they occur and to avert a full-on climate crisis. I urge you to follow sound science at USGS and use projections that study the full century.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell our senators: It's time for America to go renewable

    New legislation calls for increasing renewable energy in every state. This bill is an essential step to ensure that renewable energy grows in every part of the country. Tell our senators to support the Renewable Electricity Standard Act of 2019.

  • Tell your representative: Pass the Roadless Area Conservation Act.

    The Trump administration is chipping away at the Roadless Rule, which protects some of our most valuable wild places. The Roadless Area Conservation Act of 2019 would protect all 58.5 million acres of roadless national forest in 39 states -- permanently. Tell your U.S. House representative: Pass the Roadless Area Conservation Act.

  • Tell Congress to Protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    The Trump administration is rushing forward with plans to auction off the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil companies for drilling. Sometime during the week of June 17, Congress will be voting on legislation to fund the entire Department of the Interior, and there is a provision in that bill that could help keep the Arctic Refuge protected. The oil industry will try to have this provision removed. We need to tell Congress to please support the Arctic Refuge in the Interior Appropriation bill.

  • Tell Your U.S. senators: Stop Arctic Ocean Drilling

    Offshore drilling is a bad idea anywhere, but it would be especially unwise in the Arctic Ocean. According to the Coast Guard, the U.S. is not ready to clean up an oil spill in the Arctic. Tell your senators to pass the Stop Arctic Ocean Drilling Act of 2019.

  • Tell your U.S. House representative to oppose space billboards

    In just two years, companies expect to put billboards where no ads have gone before: In orbit above our heads, for the whole world to see, whether we want it or not. Space should remain a final frontier, free from corporate logos.

  • Tell Your Representative: No Bee-Killing Pesticides in Wildlife Refuges

    A new bill in Congress would ban bee-killing pesticides in our wildlife refuges -- the one place bees should be the safest. Tell your U.S. House representative: Protect bees by passing H.R. 2854.

  • Let us fix our stuff

    We generate too much waste, and companies use their power in the marketplace to make things harder to repair. That adds to the amount going to landfills.

    We should give every consumer and every small business access to the parts, tools, and service information they need to repair products by passing Right to Repair reforms in New York.

  • Tell your senators: Vote for Climate Action Now

    The U.S. House has voted to take some long overdue action to confront the climate crisis. The Senate should do the same. Tell your senators: Vote for Climate Action Now.

  • Put wildlife over waste

    Nothing we use for a few minutes should pollute our oceans, lakes and rivers and threaten our wildlife for centuries. Ask your governor to take the lead on plastic pollution by supporting a ban on polystyrene foam cups and containers.

  • Tell your governor to protect our waterways from plastic pollution

    Plastic pollution is everywhere. Now it's even in the lowest part of the planet, the Mariana Trench. Tell your governor to ban polystyrene, one of the worst forms of plastic pollution.

  • Tell Congress to save the bees

    Bees are dying off at unbelievable rates, threatening our food supply and our way of life. Some beekeepers recently suffered losses of 90 percent of their hives.

    We know one of the biggest causes of bee die-offs is neonicotinoid pesticides, otherwise known as neonics.

    Take action for bees: Tell your U.S. House representative to keep our pollinators safe.

  • I support 100 percent clean energy in my state

    Four states, along with Puerto Rico, have now made bold commitments to using 100 percent clean energy. We should be next. For the health of communities here in our state, and for the future of our planet, I support my state becoming a climate action leader and making the switch to 100 percent clean energy.

  • Tell the Trump administration: No fracking near our national parks

    Docket Number: DOI-BLM-CA-C060-2018-0082-EIS

    Dear BLM Acting State Director Stout:

    I oppose the plan to open up federal land in California for oil development. At a time when clean and inexhaustible alternatives such as wind and solar power are rapidly rising, and electric vehicle sales are quickly ramping up, it makes no sense to risk the surrounding national parks and wildlife refuges simply to extract the last few drops of oil from the ground. I urge you to withdraw this plan.

  • Tell the EPA: Keep toxic PFAS chemicals out of our drinking water.

    Dear Administrator Andrew Wheeler:

    I urge you to set strong, health-based standards that keep toxic per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) out of our drinking water. Even at low levels, PFAS chemicals are highly toxic, and they have already contaminated the drinking water of millions of Americans. Please protect our health by setting a limit of 1 part per trillion in drinking water for the entire class of PFAS chemicals.

    Sincerely,

  • Every state can do more to put us on a path to 100% clean, renewable energy

    Washington Gov. Jay Inslee just signed the 100% Clean Electricity Bill into law, making Washington the fourth state -- following Hawaii, California and New Mexico -- to commit to 100% clean energy.

    We need more leaders to take bold action so more of our energy comes from solar, wind and other clean, renewable sources.

  • Give bees a chance

    Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. Yet bee-killing pesticides are being sprayed in the one place bees should be safe, wildlife refuges.

    It's urgent we protect our bees. Tell Congress to support a ban on the use of bee-killing pesticides in wildlife refuges.

  • Tell your senators: Permanently fund land and water conservation

    Give our parks and other public lands the funding they deserve. Tell your senators to permanently fund land and water conservation.

  • Tell your representative: Ban offshore drilling

    Oil spills are the greatest human-caused threat to sea otters, but the Trump administration will move to open more of our oceans up to offshore drilling as soon as possible. And we know that when we drill, we spill.

    Tell your representatives to ban offshore drilling off all of America's coasts.

  • Give bees a chance

    Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. Yet bee-killing pesticides are being sprayed in the one place bees should be safe, wildlife refuges.

    It's urgent we protect our bees. Tell your state legislators to support a statewide ban on the use of bee-killing pesticides in wildlife refuges.

  • Thank Your U.S. House Rep for Climate Action Now

    Dear Representative,

    Thank you for voting for the Climate Action Now Act (H.R. 9). The science of global warming is clear -- we have no time to spare, and the stakes could not be higher. Thank you for supporting this critical first step in addressing the climate crisis.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell your representative: Ban offshore drilling

    Oil spills are a terrible threat to wildlife like sea otters and risk the livelihood of coastal communities, but the Trump administration just announced a rollback of offshore drilling regulations put in place after the Deepwater Horizon disaster. We know that when we drill, we spill -- especially if fewer safety regulations are in place.

    Tell your representatives to ban offshore drilling off all of America's coasts.

  • Thank Rep Cunningham for Climate Action Now

    Dear Representative Cunningham,

    Thank you for voting for the Climate Action Now Act (H.R. 9). The science of global warming is clear -- we have no time to spare, and the stakes could not be higher. Thank you for supporting this critical first step in addressing the climate crisis.

    Sincerely,

  • Maine Can Make History

    Maine could become the first state to ban polystyrene foam, one of the worst forms of plastic pollution. Send a message to Gov. Mills today urging her to protect our state and make history by passing the first statewide polystyrene ban in the country into law.

  • Maryland Can Make History

    A polystyrene ban is on the governor's desk, and if he signs it, Maryland will become the first state to ban this harmful plastic statewide. Send a message to Gov. Hogan today urging him to protect our state and make history by passing the first statewide polystyrene ban in the country into law.

  • Tell Congress: Don't defund the fight against climate change

    The Trump administration's proposed budget would gut climate research and clean energy investment. Tell your representative: Don't defund the fight against climate change.

  • Tell Procter & Gamble: Protect the Boreal Forest

    Dear CEO David Taylor,

    The Canadian boreal forest is vast, ancient and of indescribable value. Covering over a billion acres, the forest absorbs and stores tons of carbon to help prevent climate change, and provides a home to irreplaceable wildlife.

    Tree harvest for tissue products is causing the boreal forest to shrink alarmingly fast. The boreal is too important to destroy, especially since less damaging alternatives to virgin wood fiber are available. I strongly urge you to use recycled paper in your Charmin, Bounty and other tissue brands in order to protect the boreal forest.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell the EPA: Keep toxic PFAS chemicals out of our drinking water

  • Tell the EPA: No Dirty Water Rule

    RE: Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OW-2018-014

    Administrator Andrew Wheeler:

    The EPA's proposal to drastically weaken Clean Water Act protections is unacceptable. The proposed rule would wipe out federal protection for streams that provide drinking water to tens of millions of people, and for wetlands that filter pollution and protect our communities from flooding.

    Please abandon this proposed rollback and return to the 2015 Clean Water Rule, which helped protect drinking water sources for 117 million Americans.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Acting Interior Secretary David Bernhardt to stop seismic blasting from harming marine wildlife

  • No offshore drilling in the Atlantic

    Acting Interior Secretary Bernhardt,

    Love of our coast and the urge to protect the Atlantic is an issue that crosses even the bitterest political divides. The facts have shown time and time again that offshore drilling leads to dangerous spills that do irreparable harm to ocean ecosystems. The Atlantic is simply too precious to risk for the sake of a little more oil. I strongly urge you not to expand oil development off our coasts.

Tell your US House representative to support the Grand Canyon Centennial Protection Act and permanently protect the Grand Canyon from uranium mining.

  • Stand up for energy efficiency

    Docket EERE-2018-BT-STD-0010

    I oppose any revisions to the definitions of general service lamp and general service incandescent lamp. Undoing the January 19, 2017 standards will cost consumers money and waste energy. By 2025, the additional energy waste would increase CO2 emissions by 34 million metric tons -- the equivalent of the annual CO2 emissions of more than 7 million cars.

    If allowed to take effect as scheduled in January 2020, the new standards will save twice as much energy as any other efficiency regulation in history
    .

    I urge you to keep the 2017 standards in place.

  • Call on your legislators to codify the Roadless Rule

    The state of Alaska has asked the Trump administration to exempt the Tongass from the Roadless Rule -- and despite thousands of public comments arguing to keep Tongass wild and roadless, the Forest Service is still moving full steam ahead with a possible exemption.

    One clear way to stop this? Making the Roadless Rule the law, so the U.S. Forest Service can't grant an exemption for the Tongass or any special wild place. Call on your legislators to protect the wild places in the Tongass and all our national forests.

  • Protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the wildlife that inhabit it from oil development

    The Arctic Cultural and Coastal Plain Protection Act is the strong step we need to protect the crown jewel of our wildlife refuge system from dirty and dangerous drilling.

  • Pledge to skip the straw

    Single use plastic products, like straws, pose a serious threat to the environment and to wildlife when they are discarded. Nothing we use for a few minutes should be allowed to pollute our rivers and oceans for hundreds of years--especially when we don't really need it.

    I pledge to say "no" to plastic straws on this National Skip the Straw Day, February 22, 2019, and beyond.

  • Will you pledge to Skip the Straw?

    Nothing we use for only a couple of minutes should pollute our environment for hundreds of years. When we discard single-use plastic products -- like plastic drinking straws -- they can make their way into the environment, threatening wildlife and polluting our communities. It's time to say "no" to plastic pollution.

    I pledge to "skip the straw" for National Skip the Straw Day this February.

  • Tell Cargill to end its role in tropical deforestation and save the jaguar's home.

    Cargill CEO David W. MacLennan,

    Deforestation is on the rise in areas of Brazil that jaguars call home -- and where Cargill sources commodities like soy, which has been linked to deforestation.

    To save jaguars and other rare or threatened species, we need to protect their home -- the world's tropical forests.

  • Protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from drilling

    Bureau of Land Management,

    The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is one of the most pristine wilderness areas left on the planet. Its coastal plain is essential to the polar bears, migratory birds and Porcupine caribou that depend on the plain throughout the year. Oil drilling would do irreversible damage to the wildlife populations and the land. Drilling doesn't belong in a wildlife refuge, especially the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

    Dear Secretary Zinke,

    Please do all you can to save the Land and Water Conservation Fund. As a Congressman, you were an outspoken champion for the program, yet as Secretary of the Interior, you publicly defended a budget that drastically slashed funding for LWCF. We need you to be a champion again so that America's most successful conservation and recreation program is renewed and funded. Please don't let the Land and Water Conservation fund perish on your watch.

  • Tell Congress: Renew the Land & Water Conservation Fund

    America's most successful conservation and recreation fund has gone away. Congress let the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) expire in September.

    This program has funded everything from stunning national parks and monuments to local parks, hiking trails, and even Little League fields.

    Please tell Congress to renew the Land & Water Conservation Fund before it's too late.

  • Tell Secretary Zinke: Our oceans deserve protection

    Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke,

    Our oceans are vital to the lives and livelihoods of coastal communities, small businesses and marine wildlife, all of which are threatened by the proposal to open our coastal waters to offshore drilling.

    I urge you to listen to the communities, small businesses, governors and the millions of Americans from Florida to Alaska who have voiced their opposition to offshore drilling.

    Our oceans deserve to be protected. I urge you to withdraw your plan to expand offshore oil drilling.

  • No mining on Boundary Waters' doorstep

    Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue,

    The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is America's most-visited wilderness area: beautiful, nearly pristine, and irreplaceable. It is also uniquely vulnerable to the potential impacts of mining on its doorstep. The cancelled study of the potential impacts of copper-nickel mining on the Boundary Waters must be allowed to be completed. When the future of one of America's most special places is at stake, decisions that could impact its health forever must be made with all possible data at hand.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell your senators: Support the Roadless Area Conservation Act.

    The Trump administration is chipping away at the Roadless Rule, which protects some of our most valuable wild places. The Roadless Area Conservation Act of 2018 would protect all 58.5 million acres of roadless national forest in 39 states -- permanently.

    Add your name now to tell the Trump administration you won't stand for its Dirty Power Plan.

  • Don't let the EPA put the brakes on clean cars

    Dear EPA Acting Administrator Wheeler,

    I oppose any efforts to weaken national fuel efficiency and emission standards for cars.

    If kept intact, these standards would cut carbon pollution nationwide by 6 billion metric tons, protecting the environment and public health. In addition, the average American household will save $2,800 under these standards.

    You should be strengthening clean car standards, not putting the nation in reverse.

    Sincerely,

    *This comment will also be submitted to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.

  • Tell the U.S. Forest Service: Keep the Tongass National Forest protected

    RE: Docket Number 2018-18937

    Dear Acting Deputy Chief of the Forest Service Christopher B. French,

    The Tongass National Forest in Alaska is the world's largest temperate rainforest and one of America's most valuable wild places. Removing the Tongass from the protection of the Roadless Area Conservation Rule, which protects wild areas in the Tongass and other national forests, would threaten its ancient spruce, hemlock, and red and yellow cedars -- and the blacktail deer, brown bears, wolves, marbled murrelets, bald eagles and many other species that call the 17 million-acre forest home.

    I strongly urge you to keep the Tongass National Forest under the protection of the Roadless Area Conservation Rule.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell the U.S. Forest Service: Keep the Tongass National Forest protected

    Nothing we use for a few minutes should pollute our oceans, lakes and rivers and threaten our wildlife for centuries. Ask your governor to take the lead on plastic pollution by supporting a ban on polystyrene foam cups and containers.

  • Tell the EPA to uphold strong protections against methane leaks

    EPA Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler:

    Methane is one of the most powerful greenhouse gases, and approximately one-third of all methane pollution is generated by the production of oil and gas. The newly proposed rollback would produce an additional 350,000 metric tons over the next six years and have detrimental effects on our air quality and health.

    I urge you to uphold the EPA's mission of protecting the environment and our health -- not polluters.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell the EPA: No More HFC Pollution

    Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) are, in the EPA's own words, "the most potent and longest lasting type of greenhouse gases emitted by human activities." In a world already experiencing historic storms, raging wildfires and dire drought -- the impacts of climate change -- we simply can't afford to release any more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. I strongly urge you not to rescind protective regulations surrounding potent climate-changing refrigerants.

    Sincerely,

  • No bee-killing pesticides in national wildlife refuges

    I urge you to keep bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides out of our national wildlife refuges. Bees need a safe habitat now more than ever: They're dying off at dangerous rates, and last year, a study found that there's "almost no safe place for a bee to exist." Our national wildlife refuges are the last place we should be spraying pesticides that are poisonous for bees.

  • Protect the Endangered Species Act

    Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross:

    The Endangered Species Act (ESA) has formed the bedrock of American conservation for over 40 years, and has been 99 percent effective at preventing extinction. The proposed regulatory changes would make it easier to take protected status away from vulnerable species, and harder to protect the habitat they depend on to survive.

    To protect our nation's rich biodiversity and the health of ecosystems on which we all depend, I urge you to withdraw the proposed changes to the ESA, specifically those contained in Dockets No. FWS-HQ-ES-2018-0006, No. FWS-HQ-ES-2018-0007, and No. FWS-HQ-ES-2018-0009.

  • Protect Grand Staircase-Escalante

    I urge you not to finalize any plan that would allow mining or drilling on the land formerly protected under Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Its iconic rock formations, 30 million years of fossils, and prehistoric ruins are more valuable than any resource we could extract. It would be a tragedy to see this beautiful place crawling with bulldozers and dotted with oil wells.

    Sincerely,

  • Protect the Ruby Mountains

    I urge you not to open up any land in the Ruby Mountains for drilling and fracking. This is a special, iconic place that deserves to be protected -- for the people who hike its hundreds of miles of trails, and for the animals that call it home.

    Sincerely,

  • Speak up to keep lead out of your water

  • No seismic blasting in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    I urge you not to allow seismic blasting in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. It's destructive, and it will harm the very wildlife that ANWR is supposed to be a refuge for -- disrupting birds' migration patterns, driving caribou off their calving grounds and leaving endangered polar bears with fewer places to shelter for the winter. It has no place in a wildlife refuge.

  • Thank you for going 100% renewable

    Dear California legislative leadership,

    Thank you for passing the landmark clean energy bill SB 100. When a place as big as California makes a commitment to deploy more renewable energy, everyone feels the impact -- technologies improve, prices drop across the country, and our national contribution to global warming is reduced. This is a win for everyone, bringing the world closer to a future where we no longer rely on burning fossil fuels to power our lives. Thank you.

  • Tell the U.S. Forest Service: Continue to protect wild, roadless areas in the Tongass

    The Tongass National Forest is a truly special place. It has a diverse ecosystem filled with thriving salmon populations, tens of thousands of grizzly bears and the world's largest grouping of bald eagles, and it is one of the largest intact wild places in the United States.

    But the U.S. Forest Service is considering a plan to open up the Tongass up to commercial logging and the road building that accompanies it. Join us in urging the U.S. Forest Service to continue to protect wild, roadless areas in the Tongass.

  • Speak up for a cleaner, healthier future

    The Obama-era Clean Power Plan was set to stave off the worst impacts of global warming by cutting carbon emissions by 32 percent by 2030. With the dire impacts of climate change becoming more visible by the day, neither our health nor our environment can afford an increase in carbon dioxide entering the atmosphere. I strongly urge you to implement a power plan that dramatically cuts carbon emissions and ensures a healthy, sustainable future for us all.

  • Tell Secretary Perdue: Keep the Tongass National Forest protected

    Dear Secretary Perdue,

    The Tongass National Forest in Alaska is the world's largest temperate rainforest and one of America's most valuable wild spaces. Removing the Tongass from the protection of the Roadless Conservation Rule would threaten the ancient spruce, hemlock, and red and yellow cedars and thriving wildlife like the blacktail deer, brown bears, wolves, marbled murrelets and bald eagles that call the 17 million acre forest home. I strongly urge you to keep the Tongass National Forest under the protection of the Roadless Area Conservation Rule.

  • Tell your senators: Support the CLEARR Act

    We've known for decades that lead contamination is a threat to our health.

    The Contaminant and Lead Electronic Accounting and Reporting Requirements (CLEARR) for Drinking Water Act would provide federal funds for communities to get the lead out of their drinking water when they can't afford to do it themselves. It will also direct the Environmental Protection Agency to require electronic reporting of lead testing results and put in place stronger requirements for repeat offenders.

    Tell your senators: Support the CLEARR Act.

  • Protect Clean Car Standards

    Transportation is the single largest producer of greenhouse gases in the United States. Freezing car emissions standards at 2020 levels for the next six years will allow billions of tons of dangerous pollution to continue to enter our atmosphere. For the sake of the air we all breathe, I strongly urge you not to roll back the national clean car standards that protect our health and environment, and to maintain states' abilities to set higher standards.

  • Tell the EPA: Keep dangerous glider trucks off the road.

    Acting Administrator Wheeler,

    The EPA's own data shows that diesel glider trucks release more than fifty times the amount of certain dangerous pollutants compared to vehicles with modern engines. Diesel exhaust has been linked to many dangerous health and environmental effects, including respiratory illnesses, smog, and acid rain. It is irresponsible to allow more of these dangerous trucks to hit the road. I strongly urge you to close the loophole left by your predecessor and enforce the 300 glider-per-manufacturer limit that was imposed to help keep our health and environment safe.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell your senators: Vote no on dangerous anti-environment riders

    A spending bill just passed the House with many anti-environment riders in tow, including a repeal of the landmark Clean Water Rule that helps keep drinking water for 1 in 3 Americans safe. Other harmful riders threaten the health of our land, air and wildlife.

    It's not too late to stop these dangerous anti-environment riders in the Senate, but only if your senators hear from you. Your senators need to know that you won't stand for a spending bill that puts our environment at risk.

    The House will be voting any day now on a spending bill containing over a dozen dangerous policy riders, including a repeal of the Clean Water Rule, which helps keep drinking water for one-third of Americans safe. Other riders threaten our land, air, forests and wildlife.

    There's too much at stake to let these riders slip through. We've succeeded in defeating dangerous anti-environment riders before, but to win again we need to speak up. Your representative needs to know that you won't stand for a spending bill that puts the quality of our environment and the safety of our drinking water at risk.

  • Tell Congress: Say no to clean energy cuts

    Last month, the Trump administration sent an order asking for deep cuts to clean energy research. Tell your representatives in Congress to reject those cuts and keep funding our future.

  • Tell your governor to support a ban on plastic straws

    Plastic straws are convenient, but are they worth the cost?

    Tragic examples of the toll single-use plastic waste takes on animals and our environment have made front page news in recent months, from the whale that washed up on a beach in Spain with 64 pounds of plastic lodged in its stomach to a hard-to-watch video of scientists pulling a plastic straw out of a sea turtle's nose.

    And still, we're making the problem worse: We throw away an estimated 175 million plastic straws every single day here in the U.S.

    Ask your governor to choose wildlife over waste and support a statewide ban on plastic straws.

  • Join our call to go 100 percent renewable

  • Tell President Trump: The EPA deserves a leader who believes in its mission

    Finally, Scott Pruitt is out as the EPA administrator. With just over a year in office, Pruitt took action to repeal 22 environmental regulations -- including gutting the Clean Power Plan, the Clean Water Rule and clean cars standards. It's heartbreaking.

    Now, President Trump has the chance to nominate someone who will protect our environment. Someone who will defend this country's most precious resources -- our land, water, and air. Someone who will live up to the mission of the EPA.

    Tell President Trump to nominate an EPA leader who will be a true protector of the environment.

  • Tell your governor: Give clean cars a green light

    The Trump administration recently announced it would roll back the federal clean car standards enacted under former President Obama. But with transportation emissions now the single largest contributor to global warming pollution, it's clear we need to act.

    It's up to states to pave the way toward a cleaner future. Tell your governor to take the lead on clean cars.

  • Tell Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke: Offshore drilling isn't worth the risk

    Secretary Zinke,

    Eight years after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the damage to the Gulf of Mexico lingers: Oil residue has hurt the deep-sea microbe populations that form the base of the ocean food chain, potentially causing wide-ranging harm to ocean health. I urge you to prevent future disastrous oil spills by halting the opening of our waters to more offshore drilling.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell your governor: Keep kids safe. Ban chlorpyrifos.

    Chlorpyrifos is the most widely used pesticide in U.S. agriculture, and exposure to it has serious consequences.

    The EPA recognized the risks and banned indoor use of chlorpyrifos more than a decade ago. But chlorpyrifos is still sprayed on crops like corn, apples, strawberries and oranges, leaving families -- and especially children -- vulnerable.

    Tell your governor to ban chlorpyrifos and protect our health today.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell the Senate: Protect Wild Places in Our National Forests

    The Roadless Area Conservation Rule protects areas still untouched by logging and road-building, i.e. wild places. But there's an effort in Congress to exempt our two largest national forests from the rule. We can't let that happen. Send a message to your U.S. Senator now.

  • No bees, no food

    Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply.

    It's urgent we protect our bees. Tell the governor to declare a moratorium on bee-killing pesticides.

  • Ban bee-killing pesticides

    Dear Mayor,

    Millions of bees are dying off at an unprecedented rate, with real consequences for our environment and our food supply. One cause is a widely used class of pesticides, called neonicotinoids.

    When we rely on bees to pollinate everything from strawberries to coffee, it's clear: no bees, no food. That's why I urge you to support a ban on bee-killing pesticides.

  • Tell the EPA: Don't discount sound science

    Docket No. EPA-HQ-OA-2018-0259

    The mission of the Environmental Protection Agency is to protect human and environmental health. Restricting the types of science that the EPA can use in regulatory decision-making would undermine the EPA's ability to carry out this mission, and needlessly put the health of our families at risk.

  • Tell the CEO of Cargill to help stop tropical deforestation

    Dear Dave MacLennan:

    Tropical forest destruction drives out the orangutans, elephants, jaguars and other threatened or endangered animals that live in the forests. What's more, scientists estimate that razing forests to make way for crops or cattle accounts for 10-15 percent of the pollution that's warming the planet and changing the climate. As one of the biggest players in the world's food market, Cargill is in a position to help save our tropical forests. I urge Cargill to honor its 2014 pledge to end deforestation in all of its supply chains by 2020.

With the Trump administration moving forward with dangerous proposals for offshore drilling, it's up to Atlantic coast governors to forge a different path forward. Tell your governor to go big on offshore wind today.

  • Stand up for the Tongass National Forest

    Provisions in the budget bill would exempt the Tongass National Forest from the "Roadless Rule," potentially allowing logging and other destructive industries to pave over this wild, pristine forest. Tell Congress to stand up for one of America's great wild places and oppose the exemption.

  • Tell Bill Ford and Ford Motor Company to support clean car standards

    Dear Bill Ford,

    I urge you to defend the existing vehicle emissions standards. When fully implemented, the existing standards are set to save 6 billion metric tons of dangerous global warming pollution and cut our oil use by 12 billion barrels. Weakening them in any way would be a mistake.

    Do the right thing for our health and environment, and defend the standards in place.

    Sincerely,

  • Zero New Right Whales in 2018: We have to act now before it's too late

    We need to stop the Trump administration's offshore drilling proposal -- because our coastlines are beautiful, because oil drilling leads to spilling, because drilling requires an industrialization of our coasts, and because the right whale is nearing extinction. But we can't do it without you.

  • Tell Secretary Ryan Zinke: Don't auction off Bears Ears

  • Tell the EPA: Protect our climate and our health

    Docket No. EPA-HQ-OAR-2017-0355

    Dear Administrator Pruitt,

    The Clean Power Plan is our nation's best tool to reduce carbon pollution from power plants, combat climate change and protect our health. Analysis by the Environmental Protection Agency finds that the Clean Power Plan could prevent the premature deaths of as many as 4,500 Americans per year by 2030.

    Americans deserve clean air to breathe and a safe future for our children. I urge you to protect our climate and our health by keeping the Clean Power Plan intact.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell your elected officials to support a national goal of 100 percent renewable energy

  • Urge Governor Ige to cut pollution and deliver on the Paris Climate Agreement!

    After the president announced last year that the United States would withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement, Governor Ige said not so fast. He joined fourteen other governors and 2,500 leaders of cities, counties, corporations and universities in committing to slash pollution on their own.

    Members of this coalition are acting, putting new rules in place to cut pollution and accelerate clean energy development.

    Hawaii can step up and do more to cut pollution, as well. We can set tough limits on power plant pollution. We can accelerate wind and solar power development. And we can get more zero-emission cars and trucks on the road.

    Governor Ige needs to hear from you, rather than dirty energy interests, to forge ahead.

  • Tell Governor Carney thank you for cutting pollution!

    We won a major campaign at the end of the year, and it's time to say thank you!

    In late December 2017, Governor Carney adopted tougher limits on global warming pollution from power plants, joining eight other governors from both political parties. The new rules will cut pollution across the region by at least two-thirds below 2005 levels by 2030, and generate billions of dollars to fund important clean energy programs -- accelerating our transition away from dirty fuels like coal and gas.

    This is an important step forward. Please thank Governor Carney for taking action against pollution, and urge him to keep going!

  • Tell Governor Scott thank you for cutting pollution!

    We won a major campaign at the end of the year, and it's time to say thank you!

  • Tell Secretary Zinke: All our oceans deserve protection

    Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke,

    Our oceans are vital to the lives and livelihoods of coastal communities, small businesses and marine wildlife, all of which are threatened by the proposal to open our coastal waters to offshore drilling.

    I urge you to listen to the communities, small businesses, governors and the millions of Americans from Florida to Alaska who have voiced their opposition to offshore drilling.

    Our oceans deserve to be protected. I urge you to exempt them from offshore drilling today.

  • Protect our oceans from offshore drilling

  • Tell your elected officials: Hands off wind and solar power, reject the tax bill

    The tax bill passed by the Senate late Friday night includes an obscure provision that could stifle wind and solar energy. The House version of the bill also scraps key renewable energy tax credits. If the final bill includes either or both of these provisions, it "would have a devastating ... impact on wind and solar energy," according to renewable energy industry leaders. Send your elected officials a note today urging them to oppose the bill.

  • TELL CONGRESS TO PROTECT THE ARCTIC REFUGE

    The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is one of the last truly wild places on earth and a sanctuary to an amazing diversity of wildlife: caribou, polar bears, moose, muskoxen, and over 200 species of migratory birds.

    I urge you to vote against any legislation that opens the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas drilling.

    Now is the time to protect the Arctic Refuge and the wildlife that call this special place home.

  • Tell your senators: Rebuild Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands with clean energy

    The electrical grids of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands were almost totally destroyed by Hurricane Maria, causing tremendous hardship and suffering. Power needs to be restored quickly, and it should be done in ways that prioritize the health and well-being of the citizens of our Caribbean islands. But if we don't demand resilience and clean energy, FEMA could rebuild the same old, fossil-fuel powered grids that were in place before the hurricanes. Tell your senators to support funding to restore power and clean water as quickly as possible. At the same time, urge them to require that money spent by federal agencies to upgrade the grid be focused on a cleaner and more resilient electrical grid powered by clean, renewable energy.

  • Tell the National Park Service: Keep our national parks affordable

    To the National Park Service,

    Our national parks have been set aside for the enjoyment and benefit of generations of Americans. Families who want their kids to experience and learn to cherish our country's natural spaces shouldn't be turned back by the price of entering our shared public lands.

    I urge you not to enact these proposed entrance fee increases for 17 parks across the country, and to keep our national parks affordable for all.

    I urge you to keep in place the existing vehicle emissions standards. When fully implemented, the existing standards are set to save 6 billion metric tons of dangerous global warming pollution and cut our oil use by 12 billion barrels; weakening them in any way would be a mistake.

    Do the the right thing for our health and environment and keep the standards in place.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Scott Pruitt: Protect our clean car standards

  • Save our national monuments

    Secretary Zinke,

    Our national monuments are part of what make our country special. For most Americans, the idea that we've found some places so beautiful, sacred even, that we put them off limits to development, forever, is one of our proudest achievements.

    I urge you to uphold this tradition and make sure places like Bears Ears, Katahdin Woods & Waters and more are preserved for future generations to enjoy.

    Sincerely,
  • Protect our oceans from offshore drilling

    Docket No. BOEM-2017-0050

    Our coasts and oceans are home to stunning wildlife and beautiful beaches that we stand to lose from offshore drilling.

    I urge the Trump administration to listen to the thousands of citizens, fishermen and business owners in our coastal communities and the millions of Americans from Alaska to Florida who have already said no to offshore drilling in our oceans.

    Opening them to new offshore drilling goes against the values a majority of Americans share: that our oceans should be preserved, not sold off to the highest bidder.

  • Say No to Smoggy Skies

    The Smoggy Skies Act would block updated ozone pollution limits for years, and impose sweeping changes to future standards for smog-forming ozone and five other major air pollutants. Urge your senators to vote 'No'.

  • Lawn signs to protect our monuments

    If you live on Capitol Hill please help us save our public lands by putting up a lawn sign before August 24th for Secretary Zinke to see. We’ll deliver it right to your yard. Sign up below.

  • Protect the waters we love

    EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt,

    When it comes to our streams, rivers, lakes and wetlands, the waters we love deserve to be protected.

    But the Trump administration has made clear their intentions to roll back essential protections to our clean water like the Clean Water Rule, which protects the drinking water sources of 117 million Americans.

    I want stronger, not weaker clean water protections. That's why I'm calling on you to defend the waters Americans love, and uphold the Clean Water Rule.

    Sincerely,
  • There’s no coming back from extinction

    Since it became law, the Endangered Species Act has successfully kept 98% of species under its protection from going extinct, including gray wolves, lynx, and more than 1000 others. Proposals to weaken it could have dangerous consequences that we can never take back. That’s why we need you tell your senators to defend the Endangered Species Act.

  • Tell your senators to defend clean cars

    Some in the Senate are trying roll back the progress we’ve made on clean car standards at the expense of our air, our health and our wallets. The “Blunt Clean Cars Rollback” (S.1273) would worsen air pollution by allowing automakers to wiggle out of complying with federal fuel efficiency standards.

    Tell your senators to defend clean cars.

  • Tell your governor to get serious about cutting pollution
    2017 is shaping up to be the 2nd hottest year on record for our planet, behind only 2016. However, instead of taking action to safeguard our communities from climate change, President Trump is taking us in the wrong direction.

    We need to do more in your state to pick up the slack.

    Your governor has a huge opportunity right now to speed our progress. Within a matter of weeks, your governor and eight other governors will be deciding how fast to cut pollution from power plants across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic through 2030.

    To make this decision as strong as possible, we need to tell your governor to be ambitious.

    Customize the template letter here and tell your governor to get serious about cutting pollution.

    The decision is imminent. Your governor needs to hear from you now -- because our climate can't wait.

  • There’s no coming back from extinction

    Sen. Rand Paul (KY) and Sen. Dean Heller (NV) have introduced a bill that would remove protections from endangered species after only five years. In addition, if they have their way it would take a vote by the full Congress to add protections for new species, and even then, any governor could just decide that it doesn’t apply to their state. Even worse, the bill blocks any review by the courts. Saving species needs to rely on science not politics!

    Gray wolves, grizzly bears, and more than a thousand other species rely on the protections of the Endangered Species Act just to survive. Since it became law in 1973, the Endangered Species Act has successfully kept 98% of species under its protection from going extinct.

    This is a dangerous proposal that could have consequences we can never take back.

    That’s why we need you tell your senators to defend the Endangered Species Act.

  • Tell the EPA to ban the bee-killing pesticide imidacloprid

    Docket No. EPA-HQ-OPP-2008-0844

    EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt,

    I am deeply concerned that the EPA has published reports recognizing that imidacloprid poses risks to honey bees as part of its updated risk assessment, but has yet to remove the pesticide from the market.

    I urge you to take immediate action, listen to scientific studies, including your agency’s own analysis, that provide compelling evidence that the pesticide is harmful, and ban all neonicotinoids, including imidacloprid, dinotefuran, clothianidin and thiamethoxam.

    Sincerely,

  • No free pass for polluters

    Tell your representative to vote against a reckless bill that would weaken accountability for polluters.
