Your governor is essential to making sure the Environmental Protection Agency’s historic new limits on dangerous carbon pollution from coal-fired power plants are a success.
Industrial use of herbicides has exploded, killing off the milkweed that monarch butterflies need to survive. Tell the EPA to adopt tough restrictions on the chemicals imperiling monarchs and save them from tragic decline.
America doesn't have to settle for dirty air and yesterday's energy. Congress should restore incentives for innovation in renewable power and energy efficiency. Don't let polluters turn back the clock. Tell Congress to restore clean energy incentives.
Bees are dying at an alarming rate, and a key culprit is a highly toxic class of pesticides. Tell EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy to heed the rising tide of evidence linking neonics to the collapse of bee colonies and impose an immediate moratorium on their use. Call on her to put the public interest ahead of the profits of a handful of chemical giants and save bees from tragic decline.
Shell Oil’s aggressive attempts to drill in the Polar Beas Seas have already produced an alarming series of blunders, accidents and near-misses, proving above all that this uniquely rugged region is no place for drilling. Tell President Obama to put Alaska’s Beaufort and Chukchi — our Polar Bear Seas — permanently off-limits to the oil industry and save one of our last and greatest wild places from disaster. Call on him to leave these climate-wrecking fossil fuels in the ground.
The Environmental Protection Agency has formally proposed restrictions that would effectively stop the massive, disastrous Pebble Mine. The agency has concluded that this toxic mega-mine poses significant — even "catastrophic" — risks to Alaska's spectacular Bristol Bay and its world-renowned salmon runs, abundant wildlife populations and Native communities. Urge EPA to finish what it started by slamming the door on the Pebble Mine and protecting the Bristol Bay wilderness from destruction.
