Current Actions

  • Tell your senators: Rebuild Puerto Rico and the US 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 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 power system powered by clean, renewable energy.

  • Tell your governor: Defend and support rooftop solar energy

    Even though nearly 90 percent of Americans support more solar energy in America, a national network of utility and fossil fuel groups are chipping away at key state solar policies, threatening to stop rooftop solar's progress in its tracks. Tell your governor to oppose these efforts, and support policies that make it easier for everyone to go solar at their homes.

  • Tell Congress: Don't gut the Antiquities Act

    From Teddy Roosevelt to Barack Obama, America's presidents have declared more than 150 special places as national monuments to be protected forever under the Antiquities Act. Now Congress is trying to gut that law, making it harder to protect our nation's irreplaceable lands and giving future presidents the power to slash existing protections.

    Tell your representative to stand up for our public lands.

  • Join the call for 100 percent clean energy on campus

    We can harness clean, abundant energy more efficiently and cheaply than ever before. Yet we're still producing, consuming and wasting energy in ways that are doing lasting damage to our environment, our health and our climate. I support 100 percent renewable energy for colleges and universities across America.

    Note: For "organization," please enter your affiliated college or university.

  • Tell the State Department to reject the Keystone XL pipeline

    Building the Keystone XL pipeline would add to the pollution that’s destabilizing our climate, making America less secure now and endangering our children’s future. It also undermines the promise America made to reduce our carbon emissions.

    I urge the State Department to reject the Keystone XL pipeline.

    Sincerely,

  • Urge college campuses to go 100% renewable

    As hotspots of innovation and expertise, colleges and universities are uniquely positioned to help accelerate the transition to a clean energy future. Campuses are also bigtime energy users, serving more than 20 million students nationwide and spending more than $14 billion per year on energy. Add your name in support of a 100% renewable energy future on college campuses.

    Note: For "organization," please enter your affiliated college or university.

  • Tell your senators to fully fund the EPA

    The Environmental Protection Agency should have the resources it needs to safeguard our air, water and health from toxic threats. Yet President Trump's budget proposal would slash EPA funding by as much as one-third.

    Tell your senator to oppose budget cuts to the EPA today.

  • Tell Pres. Trump: Don't eliminate the Clean Power Plan

    The Trump administration has moved to roll back the Clean Power Plan, one of the best protections we have against air pollution. Tell President Trump: Don’t erase protections that keep our air clean and breathable.

  • Protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is one of America's wildest, most unspoiled public lands. For decades, the refuge has stood as a symbol of our nation's strong natural legacy. Now, it faces irreversible damage from oil and gas drilling thanks to the budget passed by the U.S. Senate.

    The Federal budget should reflect our nation's priorities, but this runs against the values of most Americans. I urge you to protect this special place and keep it out of the final budget.

  • Tell your senators to stand for our environment
    The U.S. House just voted for big cuts to EPA and other environmental programs.
  • 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,

  • Hold Illegal Polluters Accountable

    Dear Senator, 

    Our environmental laws protect us only when and if they're enforced. Yet the White House is moving to slash funding for the Environmental Protection Agency's enforcement programs, leaving more polluters free to violate our laws with impunity. 

    I urge you to protect our air, our water and our health by opposing any cuts to the EPA's enforcement programs.

  • Tell your senator to vote 'Yes' on 100% renewable energy

    The 100 by '50 Act would implement policies to phase out fossil fuels and put America on the path to achieving 100% renewable energy by 2050. There's no better time than now for America to make a commitment to a clean, renewable future.

    Tell your senator to vote 'yes' on the 100 by '50 Act today.

  • We can't ignore climate change

    In the face of overwhelming evidence that climate change is causing our oceans to rise, it’s unacceptable that we wouldn’t take these changes into account as we build roads, bridges and other infrastructure. But last month, the Trump administration rolled back rules requiring that certain infrastructure projects do just that. Tell President Trump: Now, more than ever, we need to plan for climate change and rising sea levels.

  • Send a message: These places are worth protecting

    The Trump administration is poised to erase protections for national monuments across the country. These one of a kind places could be opened for logging, offshore drilling and more. Tell President Trump: Keep public lands in public hands. Don't slash protections for our national monuments.

  • Tell Senators to Stand With Our Lands

    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 Grand Staircase-Escalante, Cascade-Siskiyou and more are preserved for future generations to enjoy.
  • Tell Sens. Tom Udall and Martin Henrich to stand with Rio Grande del Norte

But in addition to lawsuits we need the senators from New Mexico to do all they can to make sure Rio Grande del Norte protections remain in place.

    Sign the petition to Sens. Tom Udall and Martin Henrich and ask them to stand up for Rio Grande del Norte, which belongs to all Americans.

  • 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.

    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 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 the governor to be ambitious.

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

  • 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,

    Dear Governor,

    Our country needs to do more to fight global warming, but right now Washington, D.C. is moving in the wrong direction. It’s time for you to act, because our climate can’t wait.

    Our state is already well on its way to becoming a leader in cutting global warming pollution. Along with 8 other states, we are part of America’s most successful regional clean air and climate protection program: the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).

    Over the past decade, RGGI has helped cut power plant pollution across the region in half, saved 600 lives and generated $2.6 billion dollars for clean energy projects. As Congress works to repeal our best federal protections, we need to lead the way.

    That’s why I’m calling on you to double the strength of RGGI, making sure the limit on pollution declines 5 percent per year through 2030. When it comes to protecting our health and climate, we shouldn’t settle for less.

    Sincerely,

    But the new administration and Congress have 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 pledge to block any and all legislation to roll back protections to our clean water.

    Sincerely,

  • Protect the places we love

    Dear Senator,

    When it comes the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the parks and public lands we love, our environment deserves to be protected.

    But the new administration and Congress have made clear their intentions to roll back essential protections to our clean air and water like the Clean Power Plan and the Clean Water Rule, which limit, for the first time ever, carbon pollution from coal-fired power plants, and protect the drinking water sources of 117 million Americans.

    I want stronger, not weaker environmental protections. That’s why I’m calling on you to defend the Clean Water Rule and the Clean Power Plan, and pledge to block any and all legislation to roll back protections to our clean air, clean water, and the parks and public lands we love.

    Sincerely,

  • Defend protections for the people and places we love, the air we breathe, and the water we drink

    Dear Senator,

    When it comes to our environment, Americans stand united. We want stronger, not weaker, protections for our nation’s environment.

    I urge you to publicly oppose any bill that would weaken protections for the places we love, the air we breathe, the water we drink, or the climate we share -- and to organize your colleagues to do the same.

    Sincerely,

  • Defend Environmental Protections

    When it comes to the people and places we love, they all deserve protection. Period. Tell your senators to defend critical environmental protections.

    Dear Senator, I urge you to vote against any and all attempts to dismantle environmental protections that keep our air, water, and land clean and our families safe. Please act now to protect the people and places we love.

    Sincerely,

  • Stand up for our families and our environment

    When it comes to the people and places we love, they all deserve protection. Period.

    Tell your senators to stand up to elected officials pushing to dismantle critical environmental protections.

  • Tell your senator you're disappointed in their vote to confirm Scott Pruitt for EPA administrator

    The American people care about the safety and quality of the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the future of our children and the planet.

    Now more than ever, we need to let our senators know that we’re paying attention to how they vote on the issues that affect our families, our environment and our health.

  • Take a moment to thank your senator for voting against Scott Pruitt's nomination for EPA administrator

    The American people care about the safety and quality of the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the future of our children and the planet.

    Now more than ever, we need to let our senators know that we’re paying attention to how they vote on the issues that affect our families, our environment and our health.

  • Urge your governor to get the lead out of school drinking water

    There is lead-tainted water in schools and pre-schools across the country, flowing from fountains and faucets where our kids drink water every day.

    Lead is highly toxic and especially dangerous to children. But right now, many states have no requirements to address the threat of lead in drinking water.

    Urge your governor to get the lead out of school drinking water.

  • Tell your governor to commit to 100 percent renewable energy

    States have always been at the forefront of climate progress. Now more than ever, we need states to lead the way towards a clean energy future. Urge your governor to make a commitment to a rapid shift to 100 percent renewable energy.

  • Protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    Dear Senator,

    I'm writing to urge you to designate the Arctic Wildlife Refuge as a protected wilderness. This incredible place is home to polar bears, whales, seals, caribou and other wildlife. Unfortunately, attempts to bring oil and gas drilling to the region threaten to destroy the habitat that these animals need to survive. Additionally, it is now more important than ever that we leave fossil fuels in the ground, given the increasing number of extreme weather events caused by climate change.

    Thank you,

  • Take action: Oppose undermining the Endangered Species Act

    Dear Representative,

    I urge you to reject HR 717, the Listing Reform Act, and other bills like it that would undermine the Endangered Species Act.

    The Endangered Species Act is a cornerstone of environmental protection, and since it was enacted in 1973, 98 percent of species listed as endangered have survived.

    HR 717 would undermine that success and allow short-sighted financial interests to stand in the way of protecting endangered and threatened species.

    I urge you to vote no on HR 717.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to reject the Keystone XL pipeline

    Building the Keystone XL pipeline would add to the pollution that’s destabilizing our climate, making America less secure now and endangering our children’s future. It also undermines the promise America made to reduce our carbon emissions.

    I urge Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to reject the Keystone XL pipeline.

    Sincerely,

  • It's time for our state to lead!

    Pollution from cars and power plants is driving global warming and endangering Americans across the country. We need to shift to clean energy in order to protect our families, our communities and our future.

    Fortunately, our state and eight others in the Northeast are leading the way to better our health, our economy and our environment. With the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, we have seen six consecutive years of declining emissions!

    But we can do more! Sign the petition calling on our governor to double the strength of the petition today!

  • Don't fast track DAPL

    Dear Army Corps of Engineers,

    I’m writing to urge you to conduct an Environmental Impact Assessment on the Dakota Access Pipeline. Skipping this critical step would be reckless and would advance the project without consideration to the harm it could cause. I encourage the Army Corps to study impacts on both climate and water. Fast tracking this project by bypassing this analysis makes no sense and would be dangerous.

    Thank you,

  • The U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works just suspended committee rules to advance Scott Pruitt's nomination for EPA administrator.
  • Make sure your state continues to lead on climate!



    With 2016 topping the charts as the hottest year on record and with climate safeguards under attack in Washington D.C., state leadership is more important than ever. Join us in calling on your governor to keep your state at the forefront of the climate fight in 2017.

  • Stand up for the Arctic

    Dear Senator,

    The Arctic is a place of unique beauty, and home to one of the most fragile and sensitive ecosystems in the world. This pristine region should be protected, not exploited for oil and gas and made vulnerable to the unnecessary risk of oil spills.

    Please stand up for the Arctic and reject Senate Bill 49, the Alaska Oil and Gas Production Act.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Your Senators: Protect us from fracking 

    Fracking is wreaking havoc on our environment and putting our health at risk. The oil and gas industry even wants to bring fracking to places like the Delaware River Basin, which provides drinking water for 15 million people, and the White River National Forest in Colorado. 

    We must take action now to protect communities and our special places from fracking while we ultimately work to end this dirty drilling practice.

    Please urge your Senators to protect our environment and health from fracking by filling out the form below: 

  • It is time for our states to lead on climate

  • Take action: Oppose Scott Pruitt for head of EPA

    Dear Senator,

    I urge you to reject the nomination of Scott Pruitt for EPA administrator.

    Americans deserve an EPA administrator who is guided by science, respects and enforces the law, and will work tirelessly to protect the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the planet we call home.

    Scott Pruitt’s track record indicates that he will not meet this test.

    Sincerely,

  • Thanks, Mr. President!

    Dear President Obama,

    From protecting the water we drink and the places we love, to leaving our children a safer, more livable climate, thank you for an environmental legacy that all Americans can be proud of.

    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 EPA to declare a moratorium on bee-killing pesticides.

  • Close fracking loopholes in our bedrock environmental laws

    Since 2005, the oil and gas industry has fracked over 137,000 wells, used over 6 billion pounds of chemicals (including potential carcinogens), and produced billions of gallons of fracking wastewater. Yet the fracking industry is exempt from regulation by the EPA. Now more than ever, it’s urgent that we close loopholes in our nation’s key environmental laws that exempt the fracking industry.

    Join us in calling on Congress to close the loopholes that leave us vulnerable to toxic contamination of our drinking water.

  • ACT NOW: Protect the Grand Canyon

  • Move forward with cutting carbon emissions from transportation

    As global temperatures continue to break records, we need to cut the pollution that's making the problem worse.

    The Obama Administration's Department of Transportation is considering a rule that would require state and metropolitan transportation organizations to track, measure, and set goals to reduce carbon pollution as well as other air pollution from transportation projects.

    This new measure would help reduce global warming pollution, while increasing investment in public transit, expanding zero-carbon transportation like walking and biking, and cleaning up the air we breathe. But it won't happen without your support. Tell the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Environmental Protection Agency you support new rules to curb pollution from transportation.

  • Stop fast-tracked pipelines

    Right now, we have the chance to end a senseless program that fast tracks the construction of pipelines in our nation’s wetlands, which provide habitat for many animals and plants, not to mention the critical role they play in improving water quality. Add your name to help us end this program and protect our vital wetlands.

  • Transportation Secretary Foxx: Address carbon emissions from transportation

    We need to cut emissions from transportation.

    A new proposed rule from the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) considers requiring state and metropolitan transportation organizations to track, measure, and set goals to reduce carbon pollution as well as other air pollution from transportation projects. If enacted, this new measure could help reduce global warming pollution, increase investment in public transit, expand zero-carbon transportation like walking and biking, relieve traffic congestion, and clean up the air we breathe. But it won’t happen without your support.

    If states and cities are held accountable for their transportation emissions and reductions goals, we will protect not only our environment, but public health. In fact, by reducing dangerous global warming pollution from this top polluter, nearly 120,000 lives could be spared from global warming-fueled premature death by 2030.1 We need your help to fix the problem. Tell U.S. DOT to support rules to clean up transportation now.

  • The most important thing you can do to solve global warming

    President Obama has proposed the biggest action we’ve seen in years to fight global warming – setting the first-ever limits on global warming pollution from existing coal plants, the single largest source of global warming pollution in America.


    Send a message to your representatives in Congress urging them to support the Clean Power Plan. 

  • (No Title)
  • Protect our parks!

    For more than 100 years, American presidents have used a law called the Antiquities Act to preserve our most treasured natural areas, from the first National Monument created by Teddy Roosevelt, Devil’s Tower in Wyoming, to the Statue of Liberty, to our newest National Monument, Browns Canyon in Colorado. Now, some in Congress want to eliminate the Antiquities Act and stop protecting our most beloved landscapes, leaving North America’s oldest ponderosa pine forest open to logging, the Grand Canyon watershed suspectible to toxic mining, and the wild stretches of Idaho and southern Oregon at risk.  We need to keep this law in the books to help ensure these lands won’t be sold to the highest bidder, but protected and preserved forever.

    Email your member of Congress today and urge them to vote to protect the Antiquities Act and protect our parks.

  • Help us keep fossil fuels in the ground

    Despite the devastating environmental impacts of drilling, mining, and burning fossil fuels, the oil and gas industry has no plans of stopping. That's why senators from across the country are coming together to pass landmark legislation.

    The 'Keep Fossil Fuels In The Ground' bill would:

    • Ban drilling in the Arctic
    • Stop new drilling leases in the Pacific, Atlantic, and Gulf of Mexico
    • Stop new oil, coal, and gas leases on all federal lands

    While senators from Oregon and California to Vermont and New York have already cosponsored the bill, we need more senators to stand beside them. Tell your senator to be a champion for the environment:

  • Make wind power a major part of America’s clean energy future!

    This year was a major milestone as construction began on America’s first offshore wind project but unfortunately, Congress allowed the main federal tax incentives for wind energy to expire in 2014 -- leaving the future of wind in peril. Don’t let Congress stand in the way of our clean energy future.

  • The showdown over water is now

    The long-expected showdown in the U.S. Senate over clean water will now happen in a matter of days.

    This is your last chance before the vote to convince your senators to do the right thing by protecting clean water. Contact your senators now.

  • #ExxonKnew

    Sign to demand the Department of Justices launches a formal investigation into Exxon for misleading the public and risking the health of the planet:

  • Nothing to fear from clean water

    Water is our most precious resource, but the threats to our waterways and drinking water are downright frightening. Tell Congress there is nothing to fear from clean water, but plenty to fear from not protecting it.

  • Reauthorize the LWCF

    For 50 years, the Land and Water Conservation Fund has protected watersheds and drinking water, preserved our national heritage, and conserved natural areas and open space for wildlife and recreation -- all while providing sustainable, local jobs to communities across America.

    Back in 1965, Congress made a promise to all Americans to use funds generated from offshore oil and gas leasing to conserve our precious landscapes and create close-to-home parks for the public to use and enjoy. But this Congress broke that promise when they failed to reauthorize the LWCF by the Sept. 30 deadline. They still have the opportunity to do the right thing by the end of the year.

    Tell Congress to reauthorize and fully fund the LWCF now.

  • Ban the beads

    Tiny microbeads can be a big problem for our environment, causing harm to aquatic habitats and wildlife. Tell Congress to pass a strong bill that bans all plastic microbeads in personal care products.

  • No tax breaks for the Gulf Coast disaster

    Tell the Department of Justice to deny BP tax write offs for the Deep Water Horizon explosion.

  • Move forward on clean water

    The historic clean water protections that you helped win have been suspended nationwide, and could be overturned.

    We simply can't allow our country to go backwards on clean water. Tell the more than 20 Attorneys General who are holding up the Clean Water Rule, to do the right thing and drop the cases.

  • Fracking: A public health nightmare

    The more studies that come out, the clearer it becomes: Fracking is a hazard to public health. Fracking has been linked to cancer, hormone disruption, and premature births, among other risks. No one should be exposed to these risks. The only way to end fracking's harms is to ban it completely. 

    Sign to indicate your support for a fracking ban. If you work as a health official, please indicate this in the "Occupation" field to the right.

  • Don't let BP write off the Gulf Coast disaster

    The BP Deepwater Horizon blowout took a massive toll on our environment, the region’s wildlife, and nearby communities. For three months after the initial explosion, millions of gallons of crude oil and thousands of tons of methane spewed from the sea floor. Eleven people were killed and dozens more injured. Five years later, we are still suffering from the impacts.

    BP was found “grossly negligent” for its role in the disaster, however, their settlement will be almost entirely tax deductible. Tell the Department of Justice to deny BP tax write offs for its remaining payments to address the 2010 Gulf Coast disaster.

  • Sign your bill

    Sign now as a pledge to write a note on your next utility bill telling your local supplier to support distributed energy, especially solar.

    How to do it?

    1. Grab or print a copy of your next bill.  
    2. Write “support rooftop solar” or “support distributed energy” or something else you’d like to say on the bill (or type up a comment if you pay electronically).  
    3. Take a picture of your bill and Tweet it to us @EnvAm with the hashtag #BlockingtheSun (This step is by no means required).
    4. Mail your bill as normal.

    If utilities see that their customers are passionate enough about solar to hand write a note, they’ll be far more likely to stop blocking the sun. Some utilities are already finding ways to incorporate solar and other clean, distributed energy into their model. Make sure yours is on board.

    And don’t forget to let us know! If you Tweet a photograph of your note @EnvAm with the hashtag #BlockingtheSun we’ll be sure to share it.

    You don’t have to do it today.

    Still, please pledge now by clicking submit!

  • Support solar

    We need to focus on sustainable energy in order to protect our health, environment, and future. Yet many utilities are attempting to stop the growth of solar.

    That's why we're telling the nation’s utilities to stop lobbying decision makers and attacking policies that support clean energy -- such as net metering, which enables solar customers to sell back extra energy at a financial benefit to their community.

    Utilities can adapt and support an energy generation model of the future: one that incorporates clean energy. But we’ll need a lot of people to speak up to make them listen.

    So sign now!

  • Bring our top conservation program back to life

    After more than half a century of protecting America's favorite parks, forests and beaches, Congress just let the country's most important conservation program die.

    The Land and Water Conservation Fund has supported tens of thousands of national and local preservation projects in every state and nearly every county in the nation. It's protected the Grand Canyon, the Pacific Crest Trail, the Appalachian Trail and millions of beautiful acres in between. 

    Now it's gone. But not forever, not if we can help it. 

    Tell your members of Congress to revive our top conservation program. 

  • Stop attacks on solar energy

    Solar is virtually unlimited, pollution-free, and can help us meet many of our nation’s challenges.That's why we're urging our leaders to stand up to those trying to block the use of solar energy and support policies that will help us to obtain a clean energy future.

  • Urge the EPA to protect our water and health

    As a health care professional, you understand the importance of clean water to public health. Please add your name to call on the EPA to enforce existing law, so we can stop the pollution that threatens our health.

  • Stand up for clean energy

  • Here’s an idea – solar powered schools

    It’s that time of year again -- kids are going back to school. In fact, over 50 million students are expected to attend K-12 schools across the country this fall.

    Shouldn’t their classrooms be powered by solar energy? We think so. 

    Sign today to let the Department of Education know you support solar on schools through programs like Green Ribbon Schools. 

  • Will we take the biggest step ever on global warming?

    The Clean Power Plan is the strongest action we've ever taken to tackle global warming. The plan will reduce carbon pollution from power plants by 32% and it’s a critical part of helping us reach a strong climate deal in Paris later this fall. 

    But it’s under fire from all corners. Polluters and allies are filing lawsuits. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is even calling foreign officials to undermine President Obama's plan. 

    With record drought, record wildfire and record global temperatures, we can't afford to let climate-deniers block this critical step before it has a chance to work. 

    Tell Congress to support the Clean Power Plan today. 

  • Ban the beads

    Tiny microbeads can be a big problem for our environment, causing harm to aquatic habitats and wildlife. Tell Congress to pass a strong bill that bans all plastic microbeads in personal care products.

  • Tell the EPA to hold VW accountable

    hold VW accountable

    Volkswagen repeatedly violated the Clean Air Act for the last 6 years. Their "clean-diesel" cars could be emitting up to 15-35 times more smog-forming pollution while on the road than was showing up on their emissions tests.

    This is UNACCEPTABLE: Sign our petition to tell the EPA that we need to prosecute Volkswagen to the fullest extent of the law.

  • Tell Congress to stand with Pope Francis to stop global warming

    “Climate change is a global problem with serious implications: Environmental, social, economic, political… It represents one of the principal challenges facing humanity in our day" -- Pope Francis

    As the first Pope to address a joint meeting of Congress, Pope Francis will talk about the issues facing humanity and is expected to bring his call for climate action to Congress. He has made it clear that it is our moral obligation to address climate change, now let’s get Congress on board!

  • Save New England’s ocean treasures

    President Obama is currently considering permanent federal protections for one or more areas off our New England coast. These areas are home to a remarkable diversity of ocean life, but without protections, these fragile habitats are at risk.

    Now that the president has started the process, it’s time for New England’s members of Congress to show their support.  

  • Save our ocean's natural treasures

    The Obama administration is considering permanently protecting two of the nation's most magical underwater habitats. These areas are home to a remarkable diversity of ocean life from endangered right whales to sea turtles, but without protections, these fragile habitats and the animals that call them home are at risk.

    Urge President Obama to protect these national treasures before it's too late.

  • Clean energy and the Clean Power Plan

    Attacks against advancement and attempts to turn back the path of process are rampant in our nation. Policies such as The Clean Power Plan and Clean Energy Incentive Program are essential for not just our children's future, but also to protect our current way of life. However, with big coal and other special interests fighting to keep things just as they are, we need to do more to make sure these policies remain in place.

    Solar, energy efficiency, and wind are the best ways to assure that the clean power plan is successful. We know clean energy solutions work, and we know how to make them available for all.

    Sign to help the EPA implement affordable energy solutions as a part of the Clean Energy Incentive Program.  

  • Keep it in the ground

    Scientists now warn, "If we burn it all, we melt it all." That’s why we must keep most of the Earth’s fossil fuels where they belong: in the ground.

    Tell Congress you oppose lifting the oil export ban.

  • Voice your support to clean up trucks!

    After a summer like this, we know we need to do everything we can to tackle global warming pollution. Making trucks go farther on a gallon of fuel can curb pollution, help save the planet, and save money.

    Voice your support NOW for cleaning up dirty trucks!

    Tell the EPA to pass the strongest possible rule --  to reduce pollution from medium- and heavy-duty vehicles by 40% by 2025!


  • Solar and utilities?

    Utilities have been unwilling to accept transformation for years. This is slowly changing. New York Power Authority CEO, Gil Quiniones, took a big step by saying that all utilities must adapt their current model to accommodate rooftop solar. But this didn’t happen out of the blue. They’re hearing from all of us who are voicing our support for solar. But the fight’s not over. Thank the New York Power Authority for speaking up, and tell them to do even more today. 

  • Protect our rivers from toxic mining pollution

    The disaster on the Animas River reminds us that, for far too long, the mining industry has polluted our rivers. Forty percent of the West's headwaters are now contaminated with pollution from mines.

    President Obama has the authority to put a moratorium on all new mines near our waters on public lands.

    The hard rock mining industry should not be allowed to build new mines in and around our cherished waterways until it cleans up from past mining operations. Please add your name.

  • MORE OIL = MORE GLOBAL WARMING

    After sweating through the hottest July on record and with wildfires and drought crippling the western states, the last thing we need is more global warming pollution. But in Congress’s first week back in session, big oil is already pushing to lift the ban on crude oil exports in order to expand drilling in the U.S.

    We need your help to stop Congress from giving into big oil's bad idea. 

    Lifting the ban would increase U.S. oil production by up to 3.3 million barrels per day between 2015 and 2030. Senator Elizabeth Warren states that lifting the export ban would increase worldwide carbon emissions by almost 22 million metric tons per year. This is the equivalent of the global warming pollution from 5 average US coal plants!

    After a summer like this, the last thing we need is more global warming pollution. Help us stop big oil’s bad idea and tell Congress that more drilling means more pollution and to stop crude oil exports.

  • Protect the Atlantic Ocean for our heritage, economy, and wildlife

    President Obama is currently considering permanent federal protections for one or more areas off our New England coast. These areas are home to a remarkable diversity of ocean life, but without protections, these fragile habitats are at risk.

    Now that the president has started the process, it’s time for New England’s members of Congress to show their support.  

  • Save our coasts from offshore drilling

    Our coasts are home to stunning wildlife and incredible beaches, from the bald eagles and loggerhead sea turtles in the Chesapeake Bay to the white sandy beaches of the Outer Banks.

    But offshore drilling is putting our natural heritage and marine life at risk. Even the standard operations of offshore drilling rigs kill and injure wildlife and threaten human health and the economy. And when major disasters happen -- such as the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon blowout -- they are catastrophic.

    Please join us in telling the Obama administration to: "Save our Coasts. No offshore drilling!"

  • Protect public lands from fracking

    As the oil and gas industry seeks to expand fracking on public lands across the country, including near our national parks and areas that provide critical drinking water for millions of Americans, now is the time to call on our elected officials to take a stand against dirty drilling.

    The Protect Our Public Lands Act would ban fracking on all federal lands, protecting our most special places from fracking's dangerous and destructive impacts. While the only way to truly protect our environment and our health from fracking is to ban it outright, some places are just too precious to drill and frack and that includes our parks, canyons and forests. 

    Tell your Congressperson to take a stand against fracking by cosponsoring the Protect Our Public Lands Act. 

  • Stand up for clean power

    President Obama finalized the Clean Power Plan, the biggest step we've ever taken to tackle the climate crisis -- and predictably, climate deniers almost immediately attempted to block it. It's up to us to defend it.

  • Tell the Governor to clean up toxic mines

    In the wake of the Animas River disaster, now is the time to clean up the remaining 230 mines in Colorado that are polluting our rivers.

  • Stop mines from polluting our waters

    An outdated law from more than a century ago gives hardrock mining special priority over our drinking water, our communities, and our wildlife. The legacy of this 1872 law leaves 40 percent of the headwaters in the Western United States impaired due to mine pollution.

    The solution to this problem is passing a bill currently in Congress that would protect communities by balancing mining with other uses of public land, set standards to protect water, and create jobs by creating a dedicated fund to clean up abandoned mines.

    Contact your representative today and ask them to support The Hardrock Mining Reform and Reclamation Act of 2015.

    The program is not funded by public tax dollars, but instead through royalties paid by energy companies for drilling offshore oil and gas.

    Every year, $900 million is generated from these royalties, but each year Congress raids LWCF to spend on other projects, and now they only have 50 days to reauthorize this landmark conservation program.

    Here’s what you need to do – commit to make the call and we’ll set you up with a nifty tool that will help you call your U.S. Senator on July 30. That’s it – we’ll do everything else! Let’s remind these Senators to #ActOnClimate and support the Clean Power Plan.

  • No drilling in the Arctic

    The U.S. Department of the Interior just granted conditional permits for Royal Dutch Shell PLC to begin drilling off the coast of Alaska in the Chukchi Sea.

    Tell President Obama this is a big mistake.

  • Tell President Obama our coasts are worth too much to gamble!

    Our valuable tourism industry, commercial fisheries and coastal business communities rely on clean oceans and beaches, but the Obama Administration’s current proposal to drill off the Atlantic Coast puts our coasts at risk. You and your local business can send a strong message that our coasts are worth too much to gamble for short term gain. Sign onto our letter to President Obama today.

  • Protect our parks and special places

    In less than 100 days, our nation’s most successful conservation program could end.

    From the Grand Canyon to the parks and trails in our own backyards, the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) has set aside and protected special places for the past 50 years. Don’t let Congress let it die.

  • Protect the Grand Canyon from mining

    Tell President Obama to protect the Grand Canyon and its watershed from uranium mining by creating a new national monument.

  • Thank President Obama for supporting solar for all

    Solar is often viewed as an option only available to the upper middle class and wealthy. President Obama just took an important step to help remedy that and make sure that all Americans have the right to choose clean energy.

    Thank you for sending a letter to the President thanking him and letting him know we back his efforts to expand solar energy for all.

  • I stand with Pope Francis on global warming
    Pope Francis just took an incredibly powerful and highly visible stand on global warming, but climate-deniers and polluters are already belittling his words.
  • Tell EPA to clean up trucks!

    A third of U.S. global warming pollution comes from transportation. Big trucks represent an opportunity to clean that pollution up. Although they make up only 7 percent of the traffic on our roads, medium-and heavy-duty vehicles produce more than a quarter of on-road global warming pollution.

    The U.S Environmental Protection Agency and the National Highway Traffic & Safety Administration have proposed a new standard that will make trucks go further on a gallon of diesel. This is an important opportunity to prevent pollution, help America get off of oil, and save us all money. Tell Transportation Secretary Foxx and EPA Administrator McCarthy to make the final rule as strong as possible.

  • Grandparents Act on Climate

    It’s our duty to leave our grandchildren the best planet we can. With polar ice caps melting, sea levels rising, and storms growing more powerful, scientists are warning us: We need to do more on global warming and we need to act fast. 

    The good news is the president is finally moving forward with what’s being called “the strongest action ever taken” on climate change. The plan would limit carbon pollution from dirty power plants: America’s #1 source of global warming emissions. Unfortunately, our new leaders in Congress have vowed to do everything in their power to block the president and protect the polluters.  With so much at stake, we can’t let them kill this plan -- and that’s why we need you to stand with us today.

  • Don't let polluters win

    The final Clean Water Rule restores protections for the places we swim, fish and hike, as well as the drinking water for 117 million Americans.

    But polluters’ friends in Congress are trying to gut these protections with their dirty water bills. For the health and welfare of our citizens, we can’t let that happen.

  • Tell the EPA to prohibit fracking wastewater from being sent to Publicly Owned Treatment Works

    Fracking uses a wide range of toxic chemicals that can contaminate our drinking water, pose health threats to our families and pollute our waterways. High concentrations of heavy metals, chemical additives and even cancer causing compounds such as benzene have been found in wastewater produced by fracking.

    Astonishingly, this toxic wastewater can still be sent to sewage treatment plants that were never designed to treat all of the pollutants found in it. This allows pollutants to directly enter our waterways putting at risk downstream rivers and streams including sources of drinking water for millions of Americans.

    The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed a rule to stop fracking's toxic wastewater from being sent to these facilities. Will you add your name in support today?

  • Don't let BP write off the Gulf Coast Disaster

    The BP Deepwater Horizon blowout took a massive toll on our environment, the region’s wildlife and communities. For three months after the initial explosion, millions of gallons of crude oil and thousands of tons of methane spewed from the sea floor. Eleven people were killed and dozens more injured. Five years later, we are still suffering from the impacts.

    BP was found “grossly negligent” for its role in the disaster, however, a forthcoming decision to address BP’s liability could earn the company an additional $4.9 billion tax windfall. Tell the Department of Justice to deny BP tax deductions for its remaining payments to address the 2010 Gulf Coast disaster.

    BP has claimed billions in tax write-offs for the cleanup and damages in connection with the Deepwater Horizon catastrophe already. Of the $40 billion BP paid to clean up the environmental damage caused by the blowout, about 80% qualifies as "ordinary and necessary business costs," allowing BP to reap at least $10 billion in tax windfalls.

    Enough is enough. Don't let BP write off the disaster again.

  • Tell President Obama: Declare our nation’s parks and forests safe from fracking.

    Oil and gas companies have expressed interest in fracking 12 million more acres of public lands -- and the Obama administration is on the fence whether to let them have it.

    Please tell the president: Do not allow fracking in our national forests or near our national parks.

  • Tell Congress: Keep our families and health safe from fracking

    Across the country, fracking is contaminating drinking water, making nearby families sick with air pollution, and turning forest acres into industrial zones. Even so, the oil and gas industry is seeking to expand fracking at a frenzied pace – into our communities and forests, near our national parks, and around areas that provide drinking water for millions of Americans.

    While we ultimately need to stop fracking altogether, officials in Washington should at least close the loopholes exempting fracking from key provisions of our nation’s core environmental and public health laws. Luckily, a pack of bills has been introduced in Congress to close these loopholes.

    Send a message to your congressperson urging them to sign on the “Frack Pack” bills and help keep our natural heritage safe from this drilling!

    Our coasts are home to stunning wildlife and incredible beaches, from the bald eagles and loggerhead sea turtles in the Chesapeake Bay to the white sandy beaches of the Outer Banks.

    But offshore drilling is putting our natural heritage and marine life at risk. On ‘good’ days, drilling kills and injures wildlife and threatens human health and the economy. When they happen (which is way too often) major disasters such as the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon blowout are catastrophic.

    Currently, the Obama Administration is considering a proposal to open the Atlantic coast to offshore drilling. Please join us in telling the Obama Administration to: "Save our Coasts; No offshore drilling!"

    For more than 100 years, American presidents have used a law called the Antiquities Act to preserve our most treasured natural areas, from the first National Monument created by Teddy Roosevelt, Devil’s Tower in Wyoming, to the Statue of Liberty, to our newest National Monument, Browns Canyon in Colorado. Now, some in Congress want to eliminate the Antiquities Act and stop protecting our most beloved landscapes, leaving North America’s oldest ponderosa pine forest open to logging, the Grand Canyon watershed suspectible to toxic mining, and the wild stretches of Idaho and southern Oregon at risk.  We need to keep this law in the books to help ensure these lands won’t be sold to the highest bidder, but protected and preserved forever.

    Email your member of Congress today and urge them to vote to protect the Antiquities Act and protect our parks.

  • Don’t let polluted politics foul our waters

    The same companies that are polluting our rivers with toxic chemicals are also polluting our politics with their spending.
