Current Actions

  • Tell Congress to protect our oceans

    President Trump is working to open the Atlantic, Arctic and Pacific to drilling. Tell your senators and representative to oppose the president's disastrous plans for our oceans.

  • Act now to invest in the sun and move off of natural gas

    California has an opportunity to expand the state’s solar thermal rebate program so that more Californians can install solar water and air heating systems, reducing our state’s natural gas use and greenhouse gas emissions. But we’re facing a big hurdle this Wednesday. We need to secure the support of Assemblymember Chris Holden, who chairs the Assembly Utilities and Energy Committee.

    Please tell Assemblymember Holden: We need to act now to move off of natural gas and invest in the sun.

  • Tell your senator: Vote 'No' on this dirty, dangerous budget

    The president's budget would eliminate EPA funding for climate change programs. Tell your senators to reject this dangerous and short-sighted budget.

  • Tell your senator to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    Two U.S. senators just introduced a bill that would protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from oil and gas drilling. Urge your senators to vote 'Yes' for refuge protections.

  • Tell your local leaders to go solar

    More solar energy will benefit our community by reducing air pollution as we do our part to slow climate change. That's why I support setting strong goals and policies for solar energy in our community.

  • Defend the Places We Love

    Dear Senators,

    When it comes to protecting our environment, Americans stand united. We want clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, public lands to enjoy, and a livable climate to share.

    The children we know and love today can live cleaner, healthier lives in a greener world, but only if we can keep our environmental protections in place and make them stronger. I urge you to publicly oppose any bill that would threaten our environment or our health.

  • Tell your senator: Vote ‘No’ on this dirty, dangerous budget

    Dear Senator,

    President Trump’s proposed federal budget would virtually eliminate EPA funding for proven programs that are cleaning up the the Great Lakes, Chesapeake Bay, Puget Sound, San Francisco Bay and more.

    These regional programs have already made a difference. They’ve improved toxic pollution hotspots, restored coastal wetlands and worked to keep invasive species like the Asian carp out of the Great Lakes.

    I urge you to reject any dangerous and short-sighted budget that cuts funding to these successful clean water programs.

    Sincerely,

  • Protect Bears Ears National Monument

    Secretary Zinke,

    Bears Ears National Monument is a valuable addition to our country's wonderful natural heritage. It, along with the other parks, forests, monuments and other public lands we love, deserves our protection.

    Yet some short-sighted members of Congress are urging President Trump and yourself to revoke Bears Ears' national monument designation under the Antiquities Act -- the very act that Teddy Roosevelt enacted to protect our natural heritage.

    I urge you to support and defend the Bears Ears National Monument designation.

    Sincerely,

  • Join the Call for 100% Renewable Energy

    We can have healthier communities and a brighter future. But to get there, we need to transform the way we produce and consume energy.

    That's why we're calling for a nationwide commitment to 100% clean, renewable energy. Colleges, companies, and communities across the country can lead the way by committing to getting 100 percent of their energy from clean, renewable sources.

  • Defend Clean Car Standards

    The cars we drive should be cleaner, burning less gas and emitting less pollution. Current national standards point us in the right direction. But the president and his administration are moving to roll them back -- which could mean more of us breathing dirtier air, more kids suffering asthma attacks, and a climate that's changing even more rapidly.

    The issue is likely to end up in Congress. If we can convince 41 senators to vote to defend clean car standards from rollbacks, we can win.

    Tell your senators: Defend clean air. Oppose any rollbacks to clean car standards.

  • Defend the Clean Power Plan

    The president and his administration are moving to undo the Clean Power Plan, which would deliver more clean, renewable energy to America and reduce the pollution that's changing our climate. The debate is likely to end up in Congress. If we can convince 41 senators to vote to defend the Clean Power Plan, we can win.

    Tell your senators: Defend the Clean Power Plan.

  • Protect the waters we love

    Dear Senator,

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

    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,

  • 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,

  • 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,

  • 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,

  • (No Title)

    The LA Metro Board of Directors is considering locking us into another decade of dirty buses. Sign your name to block the procurement of dirty natural gas buses and tell Metro to commit now to achieving a 100% electric bus fleet by 2030, powered by 100% renewable energy.

    Now, more than ever, we need local leaders to commit to a clean energy future. LA Metro has a tremendous opportunity to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while cutting the air pollution that is harming our communities, improving the quality of life for the 9.6 million people who live, work, play and breathe in this region.

  • Protect the waters we love

    When it comes to our streams, rivers, lakes and wetlands, they all deserve protection. Period.

    Tell your senators to defend the Clean Water Act by voting against any attempts to roll back the Clean Water Rule, which ensures the protection of more than 2 million miles of rivers and streams and the drinking water sources for one in three Americans.

  • 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,

  • 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,

  • Take action: Oppose Scott Pruitt for head of EPA
  • 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.

  • 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.

    Sincerely,

  • No bees, no food

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

  • ACT NOW: Protect the Grand Canyon

    The mining industry is pushing hard to open the land around the Grand Canyon to claims to dig for uranium and other metals. This could have catastrophic affects on the wildlife and waterways in and around the park and expose millions of people to radioactive uranium pollution.

    With your help, we can stop this from happening. And with little time left in office, it is more urgent than ever that President Obama act now to protect the Grand Canyon -- forever. Add your name to our petition:

  • Protect Chaco Canyon from fracking

    The Bureau of Land Management is considering opening up land around Chaco Canyon to fracking. Tell them this is a terrible idea.

  • Tell the EPA to declare a moratorium on bee-killing pesticides
  • Help us get to 1.5 million electric vehicles on the road

    Transportation is the single largest source of global warming pollution in California, creating pollutants that harm our environment and our health. But California can lead the transition from dirty vehicles to clean electric cars, trucks and buses.

    Tell the California Air Resources Board to resist pressure from special interests to put the brakes on California’s goal to place 1.5 million electric vehicles on the road by 2025. By upholding and meeting this goal, we can charge ahead to a cleaner, healthier future for all Californians!

  • "Thanks for protecting Maine's North Woods!"

    President Obama just officially designated a new national monument within Maine's North Woods -- protecting 87,500 acres of wilderness area and forest, home to moose, bear, migratory songbirds and more.

    Add your name to say thank you.

  • Great! Here's one way to show our parks some love:
  • Celebrate 100 years of national parks!

    As we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service, now is the time to renew our commitment to protecting the best of America.

  • 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.

  • Swarm the EPA!

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

    It's urgent we protect our bees. That's why we're swarming the EPA with more than 50,000 petitions to ban bee-killing pesticides by July 31. Add your name.

  • Stand up for rooftop solar

  • 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.

  • Halt the use of glyphosate

    Glyphosate, the chemical used in Monsanto's Roundup, is extremely prevalent in our bodies, food, and environment, and new evidence shows the chemical may cause cancer. Tell the EPA to suspend use of glyphosate until it's proven safe.

  • Tell the National Park Service: No corporate sponsorships in our parks.

    Our national parks are suffering from under-funding and a backlog of repairs, and to close the gap, the National Park Service is proposing a backwards plan: corporate sponsorships.

    Please join us in asking National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis to stand with our parks and say "no" to corporate sponsorships.

  • Fracking: A health nightmare

    Fracking has left behind a radioactive legacy, endangering public health. Researchers identified 3,900 radioactive spill sites in the Bakken Shale region, one of the most fracked areas in the country. Radioactive spills put surrounding communities at elevated risk of cancer. The only way to stop this health disaster is to ban fracking. Add your name in support of a ban. 

    *If you're a health professional, please indicate this in the "Occupation" field.

  • Tell Tyson to stop polluting our waters

  • Tell President Obama: No new drilling!

    The Obama administration has plans that would allow new drilling in the Arctic and the Gulf, risking our climate and communities. Tell President Obama: No new drilling!

  • Tell Congress: Not. One. Acre.

    Places like Puerto Rico's Vieques National Wildlife Refuge should be protected, not sold off to the highest bidder.

    But that's exactly what will happen if House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Rob Bishop gets his way. It's outrageous and it's just the most recent attempt to sell off our public lands to make a quick buck.

    Will you send a message to your members of Congress right now, telling them: Our public lands are not for sale. Not one acre.

  • Keep our public lands public!

    It's the 100th anniversary of our national park system. But instead of celebrating America's "best idea," some in Congress want to sell off our treasured public lands -- land that belongs to all Americans.

    Send a message to your representatives: Our public lands are not for sale. Not one acre.

  • Tell Bayer to stop producing bee-killing pesticides

    You probably know Bayer as the aspirin company. But Bayer also produces neonicotinoids, the pesticides that are contributing to bee decline.

    Tell Bayer to stop producing bee-killing pesticides -- because if there are no bees, there's no food.

  • The Great Barrier Reef is at risk, take action today!

    The Great Barrier Reef is in 'grave danger' due to climate change. In order to protect this beautiful place, we need to take strong action here at home.

    Sign our petition to our governors, telling them to stand up to big polluters and their allies trying to turn back progress on climate. Support the Clean Power Plan and protect beautiful places like the Great Barrier Reef.

  • Tell Congress: Not. One. Acre.

    It's the 100th anniversary of our national park system. But instead of celebrating America's "best idea," some in Congress want to sell off our public lands, even as mining threatens the Grand Canyon and drilling threatens the Everglades.

  • Get the lead out of our schools' drinking water

    Lead poisoning can create serious problems for children, but many public schools throughout the country are showing high levels of lead in drinking water, and no one really knows the extent of the problem because only 10 percent of schools are required to test for it.

    Tell President Obama and EPA to require all public schools and day cares to test for lead and to immediately make those tests public so regulators, schools, and parents can make informed decisions if a school's drinking water is safe.

  • Join the buzz: Tell the EPA to save the bees

    Saving the bees is going to take all of us doing our part. That's why we're stepping up this Earth Day with a bigger, bolder campaign to stop the use of bee-killing pesticides.

    That's why we're calling for a nationwide commitment to 100% clean, renewable energy.

  • 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!"

  • Gov. Brown holds the key to a safer climate

    It’s up to the states now. President Obama has taken action to limit global warming pollution, including the global agreement he forged in Paris. But to make the president’s Clean Power Plan work, every state needs to develop the strongest carbon reduction plan possible. 

    Take action, and call on our governor to protect our kids and set the strongest plan possible. 

  • Thanks for standing up for clean water, again
    President Obama vetoed polluters' latest attack on the critical clean water protections we helped win.
  • It's time to take action on climate
  • Stop the gas disaster, Governor Brown
    The methane leak disaster in Porter Ranch has been ongoing for three months already and officials say it won't stop until late February. This is unacceptable.

    Thousands have already been forced to relocate after being exposed to toxic chemicals, including the known-carcinogen benzene. Five more weeks of this is too long. We need Governor Brown to demand quick action to stop the leak and then use his full authority to shut down this gas facility permanently.
  • Protect our communities and our climate from methane disasters

    One of the country's largest natural gas storage facilities, located just outside Los Angeles, is sending 110,000 pounds of climate-disrupting methane into the air every hour.

    Meanwhile, the Obama administration is finalizing rules to limit methane emissions from new oil and gas facilities. But the current proposal does nothing to prevent future disasters from existing oil and gas facilities.

    Tell President Obama and the EPA to take stronger action to protect our climate and communities from methane pollution.

  • Tell California regulators to stand strong on solar

    The California Public Utilities Commission has heard all of our calls to keep solar growing. They recently announced that they intend to reject utility company proposals to gut our state's strongest solar policy, net metering. But there's still time for the utility companies to change the commissioners' minds—and they're trying hard to do just that. The final vote is happening on January 28th. We need your help now to remind the Commission that Californians like you want them to stand up for solar.

  • 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 EPA to declare a moratorium on bee-killing pesticides.

  • Don't let Congress create a dollars and senseless budget

    The final and most serious congressional battle in the polluter-driven war to derail the Clean Water Rule is happening now. Through the budget process, polluters are trying to undermine safeguards for our cherished waterways, drinking water, and public health.

    Send a quick note to your members of Congress now, telling them you want a clean budget without dirty-water riders.

  • 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.

  • We're for clean water

    America's rivers, streams, lakes and other waters are where we go to swim, fish, canoe or just enjoy the scenery. They supply us with clean drinking water. And we should be doing all we can to protect them.

    But polluters and their allies in Congress are fighting to reverse the president's historic action to protect the waters we love.

    We're setting the record straight: Americans are for clean water. Not polluting rollbacks.

  • 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.

  • Tell Lowe's to go solar

    National big-box stores with huge roofs like Lowe’s could help jump-start the move to go solar. 

    But Lowe’s has a long way to go to “never stop improving” the way their stores take advantage of the limitless solar energy hitting their roofs each day: Less than 1 percent of Lowe’s 1,840 stores have installed solar.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Say you’ll stand with us.

    Transportation is the single largest source of global warming pollution in California, creating pollutants that harm our environment, our communities and our health. But California can get in the driver’s seat and lead the transition from dirty vehicles to clean electric cars, trucks and buses for all.

    But the fossil fuel industry and their allies in the automotive industry are pushing fighting hard to keep California addicted to dirty fuel. So we’re mobilizing the support of Californians all over the state in support of accelerating the clean vehicle revolution to benefit all Californians.

  • We want clean water, not polluted water

    Polluters' friends in the U.S. Senate are reaching deep into the bag of dirty tricks to halt restored protections for our waterways. We can't let any of their "dirty water" efforts succeed. Send a note to your senators asking them to stand for clean water.

  • 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.

  • 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. 

  • 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.

  • 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 representatives to take a stand against fracking by cosponsoring the Protect Our Public Lands Act. 

  • Tell your legislator to vote YES on SB 32 and SB 350

    California has a tremendous opportunity right now to pass historic legislation – SB 32 and SB 350 – that will put us firmly on the path towards 100% clean energy.

    We need to make sure that legislators are hearing from Californians all across the state – from you – in support of a cleaner, healthier future for all.

  • Tell the CA Public Utilities Commission to protect rooftop solar

    California has a tremendous opportunity right now to protect the policies that have enabled the state to lead the way on solar. 

    We need to make sure the Public Utilities Commission is hearing from Californians all across the state – from you – in support of a cleaner, healthier future for all. 

    Note: This email will only send for California zip coldes

  • 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.

    Will you add your name in support of clean power?

  • Stand against pesticide pollution of our water

    Some members of Congress are trying to pass a law that would eliminate federal oversight of spraying pesticides in and around our waterways.

    Pesticides have been linked to a wide range of human health hazards and wildlife die-offs. Permitting helps ensure pesticides are used in a responsible way that reduces contamination of our streams, rivers, and lakes.

    Please tell your senators to stand against this reckless action now.

  • Protect our parks and special places

    In less than 50 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.

  • 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.

  • Thank the president for acting on climate



    The Clean Power Plan is the single biggest step the United States has taken to reduce global warming pollution. Ever since the Obama administration proposed it in 2014, polluters and climate deniers have fought it every step of the way. But now, the rules are final, and it's time to celebrate!

    Join us in thanking the president for acting on climate, and passing 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.

  • Not in California. Not at a time like this. 

    California cannot call itself a climate leader when it is the third-largest producer of oil in the United States — the country that tops the list globally.

    Environmental experts and affected communities for years have been calling on Gov. Jerry Brown to curtail the expansion of oil development and protect our the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the farms that grow our food. Instead, we've seen our drinking water, air quality and food safety compromised as fracking and other dangerous extraction methods continue unabated.

    As our Govenor recieves more national attention for his leadership role in climate talks, we'd like to remind him: There is clear evidence of the growing damage caused by fracking. We can — and must — put a stop to this dangerous practice. 

    Will you send a message to the governor now?

  • 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.

  • 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 protecting our wilderness!

    It’s official! President Obama just proclaimed the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument in California.

    The monument status will make it much easier for the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Forest Service to cooperate on a specific preservation plan to combat the effect of climate change and other environmental threats in the area, including the northern migration of plant life.

    Californians already know Berryessa is a dazzling outdoor wonderland rich in unique natural features and loaded with recreational opportunities. The designation is supported by local communities, businesses, organizations, elected officials, tribal groups, and all of us here at Environment California—we've been working hard to make this happen for years.

    That's why we're so grateful today—join us in thanking President Obama for getting this done by sending him an email on through this form!

  • 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.  

  • No turning back on clean water
    Polluters and their friends in Congress are taking steps right now that could overturn the president's historic action for clean water. Now that we've restored the Clean Water Act, we're not going to let the polluters carve it up again.

    California is hurting.

    In response to the worst drought in our state’s long memory, our public institutions—with one unfortunate exception—are stepping up.

    Governor Brown and the legislature passed long-overdue groundwater and sustainable water investments through last year’s $7.5 billion water bond. Local governments and water districts are launching conservation plans to preserve dwindling water supplies. The Obama administration is providing millions in emergency grants to drought-stricken communities and farmers.

    But some in Congress have treated the drought as a political opportunity instead of a moral imperative. They’ve dusted off the same political agenda they’ve pursued for years: weakening environmental laws, gutting fishery protections, and redirecting water needed by other regions—and tried to sell it as a drought response.

    Instead, we need to work together to get through this drought. That’s why I developed the kind of serious, comprehensive legislation this crisis demandsand I want your input

  • It's time to go big on solar 

    ame-cleanwater-action-fba.jpg

    Our research shows that the cities and states with the most solar power aren't just the ones with the most sunshine; they're the ones with smart pro-solar policies.

    That's why we're urging our leaders to commit to getting at least 30% of our power from the sun by 2030.

  • 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.

  • Join our team

    Americans use an estimated 100 billion plastic bags every year—that’s about 1,500 per family. Although most lightweight plastic bags can be recycled, more than 95 percent end up in landfills or are set adrift in the environment where they can wreak havoc on wildlife and our infrastructure.

    Polls suggest that Californians overwhelmingly support a law banning plastic bags—more than 100 cities and counties, including Los Angeles and San Francisco, have already enacted their own local bans. Everyday voters see the windblown bags littering our streets, stuck in trees, and washing up on shore. We know that these bags never fully decompose, and that they aren’t being recycled enough to justify the long-term harmful impact they’ve already placed on our environment.

  • 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 Congress to protect The Great Lakes

    The Great Lakes are undoubtedly a huge part of what makes living here so great. They’re the backbone to America and a beloved part of our natural heritage.

    Tell Congress to champion the program that’s made the recovery of The Great Lakes so successful: The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. This program needs to be expanded and enhanced, not weakened.

    Don't let Congress mess with clean water.

  • 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 polluters win

    The final Clean Water Rule restores protections for the places we swim, fish and hike, as well as the drinking water for 7.3 million Californians.

    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.

  • President Obama: You can do something to stop oil spills

    The Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Administration (PHMSA) has not had a leader in seven months. The most recent permanent administrator left the position in October, more than 220 days ago.

    This agency is responsible for regulating approximately 2.6 million miles of pipelines that carry natural gas, crude oil, gasoline, and other hazardous liquids all over our country. Unfortunately, California has experienced first hand what happens when old pipelines break.

    Earlier this year, Congress provided increased funding to PHMSA after an alarming amount crude-by-rail safety concerns. But how can we expect PHMSA to use that funding to effectively increase inspections without appointing permanent leadership?

    Last week, California's Senators Feinstein and Boxer sent a letter to President Obama urging him to take action on this appointment immediately. If you think this issue is as important as we do, send a letter to President Obama reminding him what happens when we let oil companies regulate themselves.

  • We have to stop this from happening again.
       An estimated 105,000 gallons of crude oil spilled on California's coastline near Santa Barbara last week. The broken pipeline created a slick stretching nine miles along some of California's most popular camping destinations before it was secured.

       The company responsible, Houston-based Plains All American Pipeline, released a statement saying, “We apologize for the damage that it’s done to the wildlife and the environment, and we’re very sorry for the disruption and inconvenience it has caused.”

       Our remaining natural coastline is too precious to risk to the "inconvenience" of oil spills—and we know no amount of safety regulations can prevent a disaster. We have the ability to get 100% of our energy from clean, renewable sources. The sad fact is: when you drill, you spill.

  • When they drill, they spill.

    An estimated 105,000 gallons of crude oil spilled on California's coastline near Santa Barbara on this spring. The broken pipeline created a slick stretching nine miles along some of California's most popular camping destinations before it was secured.

    The company responsible, Houston-based Plains All American Pipeline, released a statement saying, “We apologize for the damage that it’s done to the wildlife and the environment, and we’re very sorry for the disruption and inconvenience it has caused.”

    But they've done it again: the same company spilled 4,200 gallons of crude near St. Louis on July 10th.

    Our remaining natural environment is too precious to risk to the "inconvenience" of oil spills—and we know no amount of safety regulations can prevent a disaster. We have the ability to get 100% of our energy from clean, renewable sources. The sad fact is: when they drill, they spill.

  • Stop Shell, protect the Arctic

    We are outraged. Shell was just given approval to drill in the Arctic, despite the Administration's own data showing a large spill is more than 75% likely to occur in the area if Shell is to move forward with their plans.

    Some areas are just too pristine and too precious to risk to the dangers of drilling - and we know no amount of safety regulations can prevent a disaster. The sad fact is: when you drill, you spill.

    Tell President Obama to send Shell back to shore and out of the Arctic!

  • 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.

  • Don’t let polluted politics foul our waters

    ame-cleanwater-action-fba.jpg

    Our research shows that the cities and states with the most solar power aren't just the ones with the most sunshine; they're the ones with smart pro-solar policies.

    That's why we're urging our leaders to commit to getting at least 30% of our power from the sun by 2030.

  • Tell your Congress members: Be a clean water champion

    The proposed clean water rule would restore protections to nearly 140,000 miles of California's streams. Will Congress heed the more than 800,000 Americans who have called on the EPA to protect our drinking water and ensure the health of our streams? Or will Congress cater to the polluters and developers who want to pollute our waterways and pave over our wetlands? We're on the verge of a big victory, but we need your action to protect the waters we love!

    Send a message to your Congress members urging them to move forward on clean water by making a public statement in support of the clean water rule.

  • Tell President Obama to protect Berryessa-Snow Mountain as a national monument

    Northern California’s Berryessa-Snow Mountain region is truly a hidden gem. Its a home for bald eagles, tule elk, and nearly half of California’s dragonfly species. Dozens of rare flowers bloom among region’s unique valleys.

    Help save this incredible place for future generations to enjoy. Tell President Obama to protect Berryessa-Snow Mountain as a national monument.

  • Save the Bees!

    beeOf the world’s major food crops, 71% are dependent on bees for pollination. But honey bee populations have been in alarming decline since 2006, threatening food supplies from strawberries to carrots to coffee. Widespread use of a class of toxic pesticides called neonicotinoids is a significant contributing factor. And now, chemical companies want to be able to use even more of these pesticides. We should be using less pesticides, not more! 

    Its urgent that we protect our bees - no bees, no farms. No farms, no food. Tell the EPA to limit pesticides that kill bees.

  • Not in California. Not at a time like this. 

    frack well

    Big Oil wants to use millions of gallons of water—at a time when California cannot afford to lose or abuse a drop—lace them with toxic chemicals and frack across California.

    It's the worst idea and critical we shut the door on it now.

    We're sending messages to Gov. Brown letting him know that Californians won't stand by and allow our communities and environment to be threatened by dirty drilling.

  • Save the monarch

    Over the last 20 years, 90 percent of monarch butterflies in North America have died off.

    And we know the reason: massive amounts of herbicides killing off milkweed -- the only plant on which monarchs will lay their eggs, and the primary food source for monarch caterpillars.

    Send a message to President Obama urging him to rein in reckless herbicide use.

  • We need to #PutSolarOnIt

    Put Solar On It

    We've just begun to tap the potential to power the nation with virtually unlimited and pollution-free energy from the sun. With the cost of solar energy declining, we must take advantage of solar energy to meet our energy needs while reducing pollution that harms our health and contributes to global warming.   

    That's why we are asking our state leaders to commit to a bold goal of getting 30% of our power from the sun by 2030.

    Protect clean water

    Will the U.S. Senate heed the more than 740,000 Americans who have called on the EPA to restore Clean Water Act protections to nearly 2 million miles of our nation's streams? Or will the Senate cater to the oil and gas, coal, developer and agribusiness lobbies that want to block us? We're on the verge of a big victory, but we need your action to protect the waters we love.
