Current Actions

  • 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.

  • 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,

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • Protect the Grand Canyon

    The mining industry is pushing hard to open the land around the park 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.

    But we can protect the Grand Canyon by ending mining activity in its surrounding areas. Forever. Add your name to our petition to President Obama today.

  • Tell the EPA to declare a moratorium on bee-killing pesticides

     

  • Add your name: Save the monarch butterfly
  • Add your name: Save the monarch butterfly
  • Tell the EPA to declare a moratorium on bee-killing pesticides
  • 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.

    That's why we're calling on President Obama to permanently protect the Grand Canyon by declaring a new national monument before he leaves office.

  • 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.

  • Say no to mining near the Grand Canyon

    The Grand Canyon area is a terrible place for uranium mining. President Obama has the ability to protect this special place for future generations before he leaves office.

    Send a message to the president: Declare the Grand Canyon and its watershed off-limits to mining forever.

  • Say no to mining the Grand Canyon

    The Grand Canyon area is a terrible place for uranium mining. President Obama has the ability to protect this special place for future generations before he leaves office.

    Send a message to the president: Declare the Grand Canyon and its watershed off-limits to mining forever.

  • 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 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.

    Send a message to your representatives: Keep our parks in public hands.

    Send a message to your representatives: Keep our parks in public hands.

  • 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.

    Help kick it off by adding your name to urge the EPA to ban the use of bee-killing pesticides.

  • Take action to give our national parks a better birthday!

    Tell your members of Congress to protect all of our national parks, so our families can continue to enjoy them for the next 100 years.

  • Give our parks the birthday they deserve

    Mining near the Grand Canyon, a backlog of repairs, calls to seize and sell our public lands? That's no way to celebrate the 100th anniversary of America's national parks!

    Tell your members of Congress to protect all of our national parks, so our families can continue to experience them for the next 100 years.

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

  • 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:

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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?

  • Tell Mitch McConnell to pull his head out of the sand

    President Obama is about to go big on global warming, Mitch McConnell is going all-out to stop him, and you can tip the balance.

  • Stop the Koch Brothers' Attacks on Solar Energy

    Solar is a virtually limitless, pollution-free energy source for the United States. We oppose recent efforts by you, the Koch Brothers, as well as your related organizations and special interest allies, that seek to slow down or halt the advancement of solar energy.

  • Get fired up for water

    The House will vote any day now on two bills designed to kill restoring protections for our waterways. At stake here is the drinking water for one in three Americans, as well as the quality of life that comes from enjoying our favorite waterways.

    Please send your representative a quick note letting him or her know you’re fired up for clean water.

  • Tell the EPA to stop the use of bee-killing pesticides

    Bees are dying...but the EPA is still allowing bee-killing pesticides on the market.

    Tell the EPA to stop the use of bee-killing pesticides.

  • Tell the EPA to stop the use of bee-killing pesticides

    Bees are dying at a startling rate, but the EPA is still allowing bee-killing pesticides on the market. Tell the EPA to stop the use of bee-killing pesticides.

  • (No Title)

    Your representative is a key swing vote on a ‘dirty water’ bill in the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee this week.

    Please send a quick note asking him or her to do the right thing by America's streams, wetlands, and drinking water.

  • We're going go big on solar

    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 nation's governors to commit to getting at least 10% of our power from the sun by 2030.

    Amplify our call by adding your name. 

  • Send a note of thanks or no thanks
    The Senate recently voted on an amendment seeking to limit the clean water rule. Send Nevada's senators a note of thanks for voting against the amendment, or tell them no thanks for voting for it.

    Depending on how your senators voted, they will show up below as a “Thank you” or “No Thank You.” Please send 'em both a note!
  • Tell Jerritt Canyon Mine to stop polluting Nevada's waterways

    Industrial facilities continue to dump millions of pounds of toxic chemicals into our waterways — threatening both the environment and human health.

    In fact, Jerritt Canyon Mine dumped 1.17 million pounds of toxic releases into Nevada's waters in 2012, a significant portion of the 1.17 million total pounds of toxics dumped into Nevada's waterways that year.

    Polluters should be held accountable for their actions. Please sign the petition to urge Jerritt Canyon Mine to stop polluting Nevada's waters.

  • 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.



  • Don’t let polluted politics foul our waters

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

    Right now, Nevada's water polluters are spending millions to lobby their allies on Capitol Hill to block the clean water rule, which, if adopted, will help protect the drinking water of 24,000 Nevadans that is currently at risk to pollution. A bill to stop the clean water rule is currently pending in the House of Representatives.

    Send a note to your representative asking him or her to not be influenced by polluters, but to listen to the majority of Nevadans who want to move forward with protecting our waterways and drinking water.

  • No Bees, No Food

  • 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. 

  • Tell your senators: Be a clean water champion

    Congress is holding a joint hearing Feb. 4 on the proposed clean water rule, which would restore protections for to nearly 2 million miles of our nation'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 senators urging them to move forward on clean water by making a public statement in support of the clean water plan.

  • 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.

  • Tell the EPA: It's time to protect all our waterways

    Right now, loopholes in the Clean Water Act leave the drinking water for 117 million Americans vulnerable to unchecked pollution. The EPA has finally proposed a rule to restore Clean Water Act protections to these critical waterways across the country. But polluters from Big Ag to Big Oil are going all in to stop this effort and keep using our waterways as their personal sewers.
