Burning oil, gas, and coal endangers people’s health and causes climate change.
NRDC fights to reduce the impacts of fossil fuels. We helped secure the first-ever U.S. limits on carbon pollution from power plants—the biggest source of climate change pollution in the country. We empower local communities to protect themselves from reckless fracking operations, and we partner with leading scientists, financial analysts, and First Nations to stop the expansion of dirty tar sands oil development. We also push for the cleaner, smarter energy solutions across the globe that will power our future and make dirty fossil fuels obsolete.
