Current Actions

  • 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. Ask your governor to restrict bee-killing pesticides.

  • Tell Congress: Permanently fund land and water conservation

    Give our parks and other public lands the funding they deserve. Tell your U.S. House representative to permanently fund land and water conservation.

  • Tell the House of Representatives to Restore Protections for the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the polar bears, caribou and migratory birds that call it home are under threat. Unless Congress passes the Arctic Cultural and Coastal Plain Protection Act, the largest wildlife refuge will soon be opened to oil and gas drilling. Urge your U.S. representative to support this legislation and conserve the Arctic Refuge's coastal plain for generations to come.

  • Tell Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to produce vehicles that pollute less

    The Trump administration is finalizing rollbacks to fuel efficiency and emissions standards. Under this proposal, annual pollution from transportation will reach the equivalent of 43 coal-fired power plants by 2040. That's why we're calling on automakers to take action.

    Ford, Honda, Volkswagen and BMW of North America have reached a deal with the California Air Resources Board to produce fleets with improved fuel efficiency -- despite the rollbacks. Tell Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) to join this agreement and commit to protecting our environment.

  • Sen. Gardner, it's time to act on climate

    Dear Senator Gardner,

    President Trump wants to take the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Agreement.

    The science of global warming is clear. We have no time to spare, and the stakes could not be higher, especially here in Colorado where we are already feeling the effects of climate change. Keep us in the Paris Climate Agreement and vote for Climate Action Now.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Congress: Act on plastic pollution

    Every day, Americans throw away tons of single-use plastic bags, cups, containers and other "stuff." Among the worst forms of plastic pollution is polystyrene foam, which never degrades and far too often ends up in our waterways where it can harm wildlife.

    It's time to put wildlife over waste and end our reliance on single-use plastics.

  • Add Your Name: Oppose the Trump Administration's Plan to Weaken Methane Regulations

    I strongly urge you not to finalize proposed rollbacks to the federal regulation of methane leaks from the oil and gas sector.

    The current rule that fossil fuel companies install technology to inspect for and fix methane leaks is critical to preventing increased emissions. The increased emissions that will result from weakened regulations will accelerate global warming and permanently damage our environment. It is crucial that we limit methane emissions, not leak hundreds of thousands of tons into the atmosphere.

  • Speak up for Bristol Bay

    The Trump administration is fast-tracking a mining project that would cause a "complete loss" of habitat in Alaska's Bristol Bay. Join us in calling on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to hold the administration accountable.

  • Bees in Colorado need your help

    Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. Yet, bee-killing pesticides are being sold on store shelves across the state to be sprayed on gardens and parks, which have become safe-havens for bees.

    With 946 native bee species, Colorado ranks 5th for bee diversity, and it's urgent we protect these critical species. Tell your state legislators to support restrictions on bee-killing pesticides in our state.

  • Tell ADM to stop deforestation and save tropical forests

    Tropical forests are often destroyed to make way for soybeans traded and sold by the world's largest agricultural companies. To save forests, we need agricultural companies to commit to sustainability.

    With the Amazon on fire, and 40 football fields worth of tropical forests being lost to deforestation every single minute worldwide, there's not a moment to lose. Call on ADM -- a large, U.S.-based agricultural firm -- to commit to zero deforestation in all of its supply chains by 2020.

  • Stand up for the North Atlantic right whale

    North Atlantic right whales are one of the world's most endangered species -- and human activity is the biggest threat to their survival. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) plans to update protections aimed at keeping right whales safe from human threats, and it is requesting comments from the public. Tell NOAA: Act immediately to help save the North Atlantic right whale.

  • Tell your senator: Protect species, support the Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act

    The Trump administration's rollbacks to the Endangered Species Act are devastating. But it's not too late for endangered species. Call on Congress to save wildlife by supporting the Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act.

  • Tell Congress: Protect America's beaches

    Across the country, more than 2,500 coastal and Great Lakes beach sites had unsafe levels of bacterial pollution last year -- due in part to stormwater runoff and sewage overflows. But water utilities are lobbying Congress right now to allow sewage plants to keep polluting at the same level for years to come. We can't let that happen. Tell your representative to protect our beaches.

  • Tell Your Representative: Support the Antiquities Act of 2019

    The Antiquities Act of 2019 would protect our national monuments from attacks by ensuring that only Congress will have the authority to modify an existing national monument. Tell your representatives to support the Antiquities Act of 2019.

  • Tell our governor to stand up for conservation in Colorado

    We're calling on our governor to stand up for a program that makes Colorado beautiful: the Land and Water Conservation Fund.

  • Tell the U.S. Department of Agriculture: Stand up for bee research

    Secretary Sonny Perdue,

    I urge you to resume data collection for the annual Honey Bee Colonies report. Bees are dying off at unsustainable rates -- with dire consequences for our environment and food supply. We should be doing more, not less, to study bee populations so we can solve this crisis. Please direct the U.S. Department of Agriculture to continue its honey bee research.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Congress to support clean energy incentives

    By going big on renewable energy, we can stop polluting our communities and planet with dirty energy sources and make real strides in tackling the climate crisis. Tell your representatives to expand their support for clean energy incentives.

  • Join the call for renewable electricity

    The Renewable Electricity Standard (RES) Act of 2019 would put the U.S. on track for at least 50 percent renewable electricity by 2035. Tell your senators to pass the RES Act.

  • Adopt the Zero Emission Vehicle rule

    Dear Colorado Air Quality Control Commission,

    Our transportation system is quickly becoming the biggest source of climate change pollution in Colorado, which threatens our environment and our way of life here. The technology exists to transition to a cleaner transportation system driven by electric vehicles. With millions of vehicles on Colorado's roads it's critical you adopt the Zero Emission Vehicle rule and quicken our transition to zero emission vehicles now.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell our governor: Be a climate leader

    The Trump administration's Dirty Power Plan takes us in the wrong direction. Join the call for climate action here in Colorado.

  • Tell Congress: Protect America's beaches

    Across the country, bacterial pollution at our beaches is putting swimmers at risk of getting sick -- due in large part to stormwater runoff and sewage overflows. Tell your representative to protect our beaches - by investing in water infrastructure that prevents this pollution.

  • Stand up for climate science

    Dear United States Geological Survey Director James Reilly,

    I oppose the decision to restrict USGS climate studies to models that only project through 2040. Because the most serious impacts of climate change will occur after that year, failing to project through the end of the century will cripple our ability to deal with the effects of climate change as they occur and to avert a full-on climate crisis. I urge you to follow sound science at USGS and use projections that study the full century.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Your Representative: No Bee-Killing Pesticides in Wildlife Refuges

    A new bill in Congress would ban bee-killing pesticides in our wildlife refuges -- the one place bees should be the safest. Tell your U.S. House representative: Protect bees by passing H.R. 2854.

  • Tell Congress: Vote YES to protect drinking water

    Congress is considering a bill to protect our drinking water from a set of toxic chemicals called PFAS. Tell your representative to vote YES to protect safe drinking water.

  • Tell our senators: It's time for America to go renewable

    New legislation calls for increasing renewable energy in every state. This bill is an essential step to ensure that renewable energy grows in every part of the country. Tell our senators to support the Renewable Electricity Standard Act of 2019.

  • Tell your representative: Pass the Roadless Area Conservation Act.

    The Trump administration is chipping away at the Roadless Rule, which protects some of our most valuable wild places. The Roadless Area Conservation Act of 2019 would protect all 58.5 million acres of roadless national forest in 39 states -- permanently. Tell your U.S. House representative: Pass the Roadless Area Conservation Act.

  • Tell your U.S. House representative to oppose space billboards

    In just two years, companies expect to put billboards where no ads have gone before: In orbit above our heads, for the whole world to see, whether we want it or not. Space should remain a final frontier, free from corporate logos.

  • Tell Congress to Protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    The Trump administration is rushing forward with plans to auction off the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil companies for drilling. Sometime during the week of June 17, Congress will be voting on legislation to fund the entire Department of the Interior, and there is a provision in that bill that could help keep the Arctic Refuge protected. The oil industry will try to have this provision removed. We need to tell Congress to please support the Arctic Refuge in the Interior Appropriation bill.

  • I support 100 percent clean energy in my state

    Four states, along with Puerto Rico, have now made bold commitments to using 100 percent clean energy. We should be next. For the health of communities here in our state, and for the future of our planet, I support my state becoming a climate action leader and making the switch to 100 percent clean energy.

  • Put wildlife over waste

    Nothing we use for a few minutes should pollute our oceans, lakes and rivers and threaten our wildlife for centuries. Ask our governor to take the lead on plastic pollution by supporting a ban on polystyrene foam cups and containers.

  • Tell your senators: Vote for Climate Action Now

    The U.S. House has voted to take some long overdue action to confront the climate crisis. The Senate should do the same. Tell your senators: Vote for Climate Action Now.

  • Tell your senators: Permanently fund land and water conservation

    Give our parks and other public lands the funding they deserve. Tell your senators to permanently fund land and water conservation.

  • Tell the Trump administration: No fracking near our national parks

    Docket Number: DOI-BLM-CA-C060-2018-0082-EIS

    Dear BLM Acting State Director Stout:

    I oppose the plan to open up federal land in California for oil development. At a time when clean and inexhaustible alternatives such as wind and solar power are rapidly rising, and electric vehicle sales are quickly ramping up, it makes no sense to risk the surrounding national parks and wildlife refuges simply to extract the last few drops of oil from the ground. I urge you to withdraw this plan.

  • Tell your senators: Don't hit the brakes on electric cars

    A new bill in the U.S. Senate would make it more expensive for consumers to switch to clean, electric vehicles. Tell your senators to stand up for electric cars.

  • Tell your representative: Ban offshore drilling

    Oil spills are the greatest human-caused threat to sea otters, but the Trump administration will move to open more of our oceans up to offshore drilling as soon as possible. And we know that when we drill, we spill.

    Tell your representatives to ban offshore drilling off all of America's coasts.

  • Give bees a chance

    Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. Yet bee-killing pesticides are being sprayed in the one place bees should be safe, wildlife refuges.

    It's urgent we protect our bees. Tell Congress to support a ban on the use of bee-killing pesticides in wildlife refuges.

  • Tell Congress: Help save the North Atlantic right whale

    Human activity has pushed the North Atlantic right whale to the brink of extinction, but there's still hope. Tell your US House representative to support the SAVE Right Whales Act.

  • Tell Congress: Don't defund the fight against climate change

    The Trump administration's proposed budget would gut climate research and clean energy investment. Tell your representative: Don't defund the fight against climate change.

  • Give bees a chance

    Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. Yet bee-killing pesticides are being sprayed in the one place bees should be safe, wildlife refuges.

    It's urgent we protect our bees. Tell your state legislators to support a statewide ban on the use of bee-killing pesticides in wildlife refuges.

  • Tell your representative: Ban offshore drilling

    Oil spills are a terrible threat to wildlife like sea otters and risk the livelihood of coastal communities, but the Trump administration just announced a rollback of offshore drilling regulations put in place after the Deepwater Horizon disaster. We know that when we drill, we spill -- especially if fewer safety regulations are in place.

    Tell your representatives to ban offshore drilling off all of America's coasts.

  • Tell Cargill to end its role in tropical deforestation and save the jaguar's home.

    Cargill CEO David W. MacLennan,

    Deforestation is on the rise in areas of Brazil that jaguars call home -- and where Cargill sources commodities like soy, which has been linked to deforestation.

    To save jaguars and other rare or threatened species, we need to protect their home -- the world's tropical forests.

    I urge you to strengthen Cargill's commitment to eliminate deforestation in all of its supply chains by 2020.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Your Colorado House Member: Vote Yes on SB243

    The Colorado state Senate just approved our bill to ban polystyrene to-go food containers and cups: SB243. Now it's in the state House. Polystyrene, what most of us call Styrofoam, is a particularly harmful form of plastic pollution that harms fish, birds, mammals and earthworms. It takes 500 years or more to break down.

    We only have until this Friday to get our bill passed through the House before the legislative sessions ends. We need the state Senate to approve SB243 this week.

  • Tell Congress: Vote for Climate Action Now

    The science of global warming is clear -- we must ratchet down carbon pollution from the burning of fossil fuels as soon as possible. Tell your representative: Vote for Climate Action Now.

  • Tell Your State Senator: Eliminate polystyrene to-go containers and cups

    The Colorado state Senate is voting this week on our bill to ban polystyrene to-go food containers and cups: SB243. Polystyrene, what most of us call Styrofoam, is a particularly harmful form of plastic pollution that harms fish, birds, mammals and earthworms. It takes 500 years or more to break down.

    We only have two weeks to get our bill passed before the legislative sessions ends. We need the State Senate to approve SB243 this week.

  • Tell Congress: Stand Up For Our Ocean

    Our ocean is vast, awe-inspiring and increasingly under threat. This Earth Day, we need our leaders to do more to protect it -- and that means standing up for our most unique ocean places.

  • Tell Congress to save the bees

    Bees are dying off at unbelievable rates, threatening our food supply and our way of life. Some beekeepers recently suffered losses of 90% of their hives.

    We know one of the biggest causes of bee die-offs is neonicotinoid pesticides, otherwise known as neonics.

    Take action for bees: Tell your U.S. House representative to keep our pollinators safe.

  • Tell Procter & Gamble: Protect the Boreal Forest

    Dear CEO David Taylor,

    The Canadian boreal forest is vast, ancient and of indescribable value. Covering over a billion acres, the forest absorbs and stores tons of carbon to help prevent climate change, and provides a home to irreplaceable wildlife.

    Tree harvest for tissue products is causing the boreal forest to shrink alarmingly fast. The boreal is too important to destroy, especially since less damaging alternatives to virgin wood fiber are available. I strongly urge you to use recycled paper in your Charmin, Bounty and other tissue brands in order to protect the boreal forest.

    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 your state legislators to support a statewide ban on the most common and problematic uses of bee-killing pesticides.

  • Tell Acting Interior Secretary David Bernhardt to stop seismic blasting from harming marine wildlife

    Seismic blasting will have detrimental effects on thousands of dolphins, whales, turtles and more off of the Atlantic coast, especially the North Atlantic right whales, one of the world's most endangered species. Tell Acting Interior Secretary David Bernhardt to prevent this disruptive practice from invading the Atlantic.

  • Tell the EPA: Keep toxic PFAS chemicals out of our drinking water.

    Dear Administrator Andrew Wheeler:

    I urge you to set strong, health-based standards that keep toxic per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) out of our drinking water. Even at low levels, PFAS chemicals are highly toxic, and they have already contaminated the drinking water of millions of Americans. Please protect our health by setting a limit of 1 part per trillion in drinking water for the entire class of PFAS chemicals.

    Sincerely,

  • No offshore drilling in the Atlantic

    Acting Interior Secretary Bernhardt,

    Love of our coast and the urge to protect the Atlantic is an issue that crosses even the bitterest political divides. The facts have shown time and time again that offshore drilling leads to dangerous spills that do irreparable harm to ocean ecosystems. The Atlantic is simply too precious to risk for the sake of a little more oil. I strongly urge you not to expand oil development off our coasts.

    Sincerely,

  • Call on your legislators to codify the Roadless Rule

    The state of Alaska has asked the Trump administration to exempt the Tongass from the Roadless Rule -- and despite thousands of public comments arguing to keep Tongass wild and roadless, the Forest Service is still moving full steam ahead with a possible exemption.

    One clear way to stop this? Making the Roadless Rule the law, so the U.S. Forest Service can't grant an exemption for the Tongass or any special wild place. Call on your legislators to protect the wild places in the Tongass and all our national forests.

  • Stand up for energy efficiency

    The Trump administration's latest rollback could result in inefficient, energy-draining light bulbs in half the light sockets in the country -- at a time when we need to be using less energy, not more. Tell the Department of Energy: Don't roll back energy efficiency standards.

  • We Need Climate Action at All Levels of Government

    Dear Colorado leader,

    Spending time outdoors is a mainstay of life in Colorado. Whether it is skiing in the winter, visiting our public lands in the summer, or enjoying the changing colors of our iconic aspen trees in the fall. Unfortunately, all of these activities are at risk due to climate change.

    The dangers of climate change are real and present in our state. Its effects are numerous and include extreme weather, public health risks, and business impacts. We urge you to act on climate and mitigate the threats of global warming on our unique way of life.

  • Add your name to protect gray wolves:

    So many of our nation's natural treasures have been damaged or destroyed in the name of economic progress or ecological shortsightedness. We need to help our wildlife and wild places recover and thrive, not consign them to extinction. Today, only 5,500 wolves roam the Lower 48 states -- down from hundreds of thousands at their peak. The job of wolf recovery isn't done yet, and wolves need the protection of the Endangered Species Act to survive.

    Sincerely,

  • Speak up to get lead out of your water

    Lead is a known health threat, especially to children, that can result in permanent brain damage. Yet across the country, lead is still being found in our drinking water. Ask your governor to get the lead out of schools' water.

  • Tell your governor to protect our waterways from plastic pollution

    Plastic pollution is everywhere. Now it's even in the lowest part of the planet, the Mariana Trench. Tell your governor to ban polystyrene, one of the worst forms of plastic pollution, in Colorado.

  • Tell 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. Add your name in support of a 100% renewable energy future on college campuses.

  • Stand up for North Atlantic right whales

    At most, only 411 North Atlantic right whales remain on our planet. Human activity has pushed this species to the brink of extinction, but right now, we have a chance to save them. Tell your senators to protect the North Atlantic right whales.

  • Pledge to skip the straw

    Single use plastic products, like straws, pose a serious threat to the environment and to wildlife when they are discarded. Nothing we use for a few minutes should be allowed to pollute our rivers and oceans for hundreds of years--especially when we don't really need it.

    I pledge to say "no" to plastic straws on this National Skip the Straw Day, February 22, 2019, and beyond.

  • Will you pledge to Skip the Straw?

    Nothing we use for only a couple of minutes should pollute our environment for hundreds of years. When we discard single-use plastic products -- like plastic drinking straws -- they can make their way into the environment, threatening wildlife and polluting our communities. It's time to say "no" to plastic pollution.

    I pledge to "skip the straw" for National Skip the Straw Day this February.

  • Add your name in support of energy efficiency standards

    By using our energy more wisely and efficiently, we can combat climate change and clean up our air. I support standards that require appliances and other commonly used products and machinery to be more energy efficient, for the good of our communities and our planet.

  • Tell your governor to protect the bees in Colorado.

    Ninety percent of the world's food comes from just 100 crops, and bees pollinate 71 of them. Without bees, we would have less chocolate and fewer strawberries, let alone the bright and colorful flowers that we give our loved ones on Valentine's Day. Without bees, this holiday wouldn't be the same, and neither would our ecosystem.

  • Tell the EPA: No Dirty Water Rule

    RE: Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OW-2018-014

    Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler:

    The EPA's proposal to drastically weaken Clean Water Act protections is unacceptable. The proposed rule would wipe out federal protection for streams that provide drinking water to tens of millions of people, and for wetlands that filter pollution and protect our communities from flooding.

    Please abandon this proposed rollback and return to the 2015 Clean Water Rule, which helped protect drinking water sources for 117 million Americans.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell your representative to reauthorize the Land and Water Conservation Fund

    Protect our public lands

  • Tell your senators: Don't let the Trump administration pull the plug on electric cars.

    The Trump administration wants to end an important tax credit for electric vehicles, slowing down our transition to clean transportation at a time when we need to be doing everything we can to stop burning fossil fuels. Tell your senators: We should make it easier, not harder, for people to buy clean, electric cars.

  • Keep our national forests protected

    U.S. Forest Service Chief Vicki Christiansen,

    Utah's national forests showcase the state's unique terrain, connecting mountain peaks and high-elevation lakes with canyons and valleys. Altering Utah's protection under the Roadless Rule will put 4 million acres of forested land at risk of logging.

    We can't risk the protection of these treasured spaces. I urge you to keep our national forests protected.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Polis: Thanks for protecting our planet

    Governor Jared Polis just signed an Executive Order that takes big steps toward a pollution-free transportation system by speeding up our transition to electric vehicles.

    We want to see more actions like this in the near future. Please join us in showing your support and thank Governor Polis.

  • Protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from drilling

    Bureau of Land Management,

    The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is one of the most pristine wilderness areas left on the planet. Its coastal plain is essential to the polar bears, migratory birds and Porcupine caribou that depend on the plain throughout the year. Oil drilling would do irreversible damage to the wildlife populations and the land. Drilling doesn't belong in a wildlife refuge, especially the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
    I urge you to adopt a "No action" alternative to drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

  • Tell the EPA: Don't weaken protections from mercury pollution

    I'm writing to oppose any changes that weaken the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS). Mercury poisoning is linked to health issues including neurological disorders and brain damage, and exposure can even be fatal. The MATS rules protect the public by limiting emissions of mercury, arsenic, and other toxicants, Even the power industry, which has already invested more than $18 billion dollars in cleaning up dangerous and deadly pollutants, opposes these changes. Please keep the MATS rules in place.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Acting Interior Secretary David Bernhardt to stop seismic blasting from harming marine wildlife

    Seismic blasting will have detrimental effects on thousands of dolphins, whales, turtles and more off of the Atlantic coast, especially the North Atlantic right whales, one of the world's most endangered species. Tell Acting Interior Secretary David Bernhardt to prevent this disruptive practice from invading the Atlantic.

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

  • Stand Up For Energy Efficiency

    We have the power to waste less and use our energy wisely and more efficiently. Sign up to learn more about action you can take at home, in your community and in your state.

  • Tell the EPA: No Dirty Water Rule

    RE: Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OW-2018-014

    Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler:

    The EPA's proposal to drastically weaken Clean Water Act protections is unacceptable. The proposed rule would wipe out federal protection for streams that provide drinking water to tens of millions of people, and for wetlands that filter pollution and protect our communities from flooding.

    Please abandon this proposed rollback and return to the 2015 Clean Water Rule, which helped protect drinking water sources for 117 million Americans.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Sens. Gardner and Bennet: Support the Roadless Area Conservation Act.

    The Trump administration is chipping away at the Roadless Rule, which protects some of our most valuable wild places. The Roadless Area Conservation Act of 2018 would protect all 58.5 million acres of roadless national forest in 39 states -- permanently. Tell Sens. Gardner and Bennet: Support the Roadless Area Conservation Act.

  • Tell the EPA to protect our climate against methane leaks

    Docket No. EPA-HQ-OAR-2017-0483

    EPA Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler:

    Methane is one of the most powerful greenhouse gases, and approximately one-third of all methane pollution is generated by the production of oil and gas. The newly proposed rollback would produce an additional 350,000 metric tons of this intense, global warming pollution over the next six years and have detrimental effects on our climate, air quality and health.

    I urge you to uphold the EPA's mission of protecting the environment and our health -- not polluters.

    Sincerely,

  • Make wildlife refuges safe for bees once again

    I'm writing in support of the Saving America's Pollinators Act. Bees are dying off at unsustainable rates, putting our food supply at risk. A big cause of these die-offs is bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides -- but these neonics are still widely used, even in wildlife refuges that should be the safest place for bees. I urge you to pass this critical legislation to halt the use of neonics.

    Sincerely,

  • Gray wolves need federal protection

    Gray wolves roamed America from coast to coast until hunting and trapping nearly eliminated them entirely. Today, wolf numbers are increasing -- but even this much recovery would have been impossible without the Endangered Species Act (ESA). We know wolves need protection if they are to survive. Call on your U.S. senators to vote "no" on any legislation that removes ESA protections for wolves.

  • Tell Cargill to commit to zero deforestation

    Cargill CEO David W. MacLennan,

    Tropical forests are crucial to protecting endangered species and slowing climate change, and given the findings of the latest report on the state of our climate by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, we simply can't afford to wait until 2030 to take action.

    Cargill can be a leader when it comes to ending deforestation and protecting our climate. I urge you to strengthen Cargill's forest policies to commit to eliminate all deforestation in all of its supply chains by 2023.

  • Colorado needs a Zero Emission Vehicle standard!

    As a Colorado resident, I want our state to be a leader in climate action. The Colorado Air Quality Control Commission should capitalize on our newly approved Low Emission Vehicle standard by adopting a Zero Emission Vehicle standard for the sake of our air, our health and our climate.

  • Tell your senators to protect our national forests

    The Tongass National Forest in Alaska is the world's largest intact temperate rainforest and one of America's most cherished wild spaces. But it's all at risk of being clear-cut by the logging industry. We have a unique chance to save the Tongass and protect all of our other national forests by asking our senators to support the Roadless Area Conservation Act of 2018.

  • No mining on Boundary Waters' doorstep

    Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue,

    The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is America's most-visited wilderness area: beautiful, nearly pristine, and irreplaceable. It is also uniquely vulnerable to the potential impacts of mining on its doorstep. The cancelled study of the potential impacts of copper-nickel mining on the Boundary Waters must be allowed to be completed. When the future of one of America's most special places is at stake, decisions that could impact its health forever must be made with all possible data at hand.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Secretary Zinke: Our oceans deserve protection

    Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke,

    Our oceans are vital to the lives and livelihoods of coastal communities, small businesses and marine wildlife, all of which are threatened by the proposal to open our coastal waters to offshore drilling.

    I urge you to listen to the communities, small businesses, governors and the millions of Americans from Florida to Alaska who have voiced their opposition to offshore drilling.

    Our oceans deserve to be protected. I urge you to withdraw your plan to expand offshore offshore oil drilling.

  • Tell Congress: Renew the Land & Water Conservation Fund

    America's most successful conservation and recreation fund has gone away. Congress let the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) expire in September.

    This program has funded everything from stunning national parks and monuments to local parks, hiking trails, and even Little League fields.

    Please tell Congress to renew the Land & Water Conservation Fund before it's too late.

  • DEADLINE Oct. 31: Say no to the Dirty Power Plan

    Add your name now to tell the Trump administration you won't stand for its Dirty Power Plan.

  • Don't let the EPA put the brakes on clean cars

    Dear EPA Acting Administrator Wheeler,

    I oppose any efforts to weaken national fuel efficiency and emission standards for cars.

    If kept intact, these standards would cut carbon pollution nationwide by 6 billion metric tons, protecting the environment and public health. In addition, the average American household will save $2,800 under these standards.

    You should be strengthening clean car standards, not putting the nation in reverse.

    Sincerely,

    *This comment will also be submitted to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.

  • Tell the U.S. Forest Service: Keep the Tongass National Forest protected

    RE: Docket Number 2018-18937

    Dear Acting Deputy Chief of the Forest Service Christopher B. French,

    The Tongass National Forest in Alaska is the world's largest temperate rainforest and one of America's most valuable wild places. Removing the Tongass from the protection of the Roadless Area Conservation Rule, which protects wild areas in the Tongass and other national forests, would threaten its ancient spruce, hemlock, and red and yellow cedars -- and the blacktail deer, brown bears, wolves, marbled murrelets, bald eagles and many other species that call the 17 million-acre forest home.

    I strongly urge you to keep the Tongass National Forest under the protection of the Roadless Area Conservation Rule.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell the U.S. Forest Service: Keep the Tongass National Forest protected

    RE: Docket Number 2018-18937

    Dear Acting Deputy Chief of the Forest Service Christopher B. French,

    The Tongass National Forest in Alaska is the world's largest temperate rainforest and one of America's most valuable wild places. Removing the Tongass from the protection of the Roadless Area Conservation Rule, which protects wild areas in the Tongass and other national forests, would threaten its ancient spruce, hemlock, and red and yellow cedars -- and the blacktail deer, brown bears, wolves, marbled murrelets, bald eagles and many other species that call the 17 million-acre forest home.

    I strongly urge you to keep the Tongass National Forest under the protection of the Roadless Area Conservation Rule.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell our governor to protect our waterways from plastic waste

    Nothing we use for a few minutes should pollute our oceans, lakes and rivers and threaten our wildlife for centuries. Ask our governor to take the lead on plastic pollution by supporting a ban on polystyrene foam cups and containers.

  • Show your support for Clean Car Standards in Colorado

    I support the Colorado Air Quality Control Commission adopting advanced clean car standards for the sake of clean air and climate action. Higher fuel efficiency and electric vehicles are both vital to this effort. Transportation is the top source of greenhouse gas emissions in the nation and the 2nd largest source of emissions in Colorado.

    As a Colorado resident, I want the state to be a leader in climate action. Additionally these standards will result in more choices for clean cars. Choices that protect our environment, help save money, and keep my air clean. In the absence of robust federal standards, Colorado can and should adopt state-level standards for both low emission vehicles and zero emission vehicles.

  • Tell the EPA: No more HFC pollution

    Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) are, in the EPA's own words, "the most potent and longest lasting type of greenhouse gases emitted by human activities." In a world already experiencing historic storms, raging wildfires and dire drought -- the impacts of climate change -- we simply can't afford to release any more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. I strongly urge you not to rescind protective regulations surrounding potent climate-changing refrigerants.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell the EPA to uphold strong protections against methane leaks

    EPA Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler:

    Methane is one of the most powerful greenhouse gases, and approximately one-third of all methane pollution is generated by the production of oil and gas. The newly proposed rollback would produce an additional 350,000 metric tons over the next six years and have detrimental effects on our air quality and health.

    I urge you to uphold the EPA's mission of protecting the environment and our health -- not polluters.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell the U.S. Forest Service: Keep the Tongass National Forest protected

  • No bee-killing pesticides in national wildlife refuges

    I urge you to keep bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides out of our national wildlife refuges. Bees need a safe habitat now more than ever: They're dying off at dangerous rates, and last year, a study found that there's "almost no safe place for a bee to exist." Our national wildlife refuges are the last place we should be spraying pesticides that are poisonous for bees.

  • Protect the Endangered Species Act

    Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross:

    The Endangered Species Act (ESA) has formed the bedrock of American conservation for over 40 years, and has been 99 percent effective at preventing extinction. The proposed regulatory changes would make it easier to take protected status away from vulnerable species, and harder to protect the habitat they depend on to survive.

    To protect our nation's rich biodiversity and the health of ecosystems on which we all depend, I urge you to withdraw the proposed changes to the ESA, specifically those contained in Dockets No. FWS-HQ-ES-2018-0006, No. FWS-HQ-ES-2018-0007, and No. FWS-HQ-ES-2018-0009.

    Sincerely,

  • Protect Grand Staircase-Escalante

    I urge you not to finalize any plan that would allow mining or drilling on the land formerly protected under Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Its iconic rock formations, 30 million years of fossils, and prehistoric ruins are more valuable than any resource we could extract. It would be a tragedy to see this beautiful place crawling with bulldozers and dotted with oil wells.

    Sincerely,

  • Protect the Ruby Mountains

    I urge you not to open up any land in the Ruby Mountains for drilling and fracking. This is a special, iconic place that deserves to be protected -- for the people who hike its hundreds of miles of trails, and for the animals that call it home.

    Sincerely,

  • Don't let the EPA put the brakes on clean cars

    Dear EPA Acting Administrator Wheeler,

    I oppose any efforts to weaken national fuel efficiency and emission standards for cars.

    If kept intact, these standards would cut carbon pollution nationwide by 6 billion metric tons, protecting the environment and public health. In addition, the average American household will save $2,800 under these standards.

    You should be strengthening clean car standards, not putting the nation in reverse.

    Sincerely,

  • No seismic blasting in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    I urge you not to allow seismic blasting in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. It's destructive, and it will harm the very wildlife that ANWR is supposed to be a refuge for -- disrupting birds' migration patterns, driving caribou off their calving grounds and leaving endangered polar bears with fewer places to shelter for the winter. It has no place in a wildlife refuge.

  • Tell the U.S. Forest Service: Continue to protect wild, roadless areas in the Tongass

    The Tongass National Forest is a truly special place. It has a diverse ecosystem filled with thriving salmon populations, tens of thousands of grizzly bears and the world's largest grouping of bald eagles, and it is one of the largest intact wild places in the United States.

    But the U.S. Forest Service is considering a plan to open up the Tongass up to commercial logging and the road building that accompanies it. Join us in urging the U.S. Forest Service to continue to protect wild, roadless areas in the Tongass.

  • Speak up for a cleaner, healthier future

    The Obama-era Clean Power Plan was set to stave off the worst impacts of global warming by cutting carbon emissions by 32 percent by 2030. With the dire impacts of climate change becoming more visible by the day, neither our health nor our environment can afford an increase in carbon dioxide entering the atmosphere. I strongly urge you to implement a power plan that dramatically cuts carbon emissions and ensures a healthy, sustainable future for us all.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Secretary Perdue: Keep the Tongass National Forest protected

    Dear Secretary Perdue,

    The Tongass National Forest in Alaska is the world's largest temperate rainforest and one of America's most valuable wild spaces. Removing the Tongass from the protection of the Roadless Conservation Rule would threaten its ancient spruce, hemlock, and red and yellow cedars -- and the blacktail deer, brown bears, wolves, marbled murrelets and bald eagles that call the 17 million-acre forest home. I strongly urge you to keep the Tongass National Forest under the protection of the Roadless Area Conservation Rule.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell our senators: Support the CLEARR Act

    We've known for decades that lead contamination is a threat to our health.

    The Contaminant and Lead Electronic Accounting and Reporting Requirements (CLEARR) for Drinking Water Act would provide federal funds for communities to get the lead out of their drinking water when they can't afford to do it themselves. It will also direct the Environmental Protection Agency to require electronic reporting of lead testing results and put in place stronger requirements for repeat offenders.

    Tell our senators: Support the CLEARR Act.

  • Tell Rep. Tipton to Act on Climate

    Congressman Tipton,

    Outdoor recreation is a mainstay of life on the Western Slope. It is driven by skiing in the winter, visitors to our public lands in the summer, and in-state tourists enjoying the changing colors of our iconic aspen trees in the fall. Unfortunately, all of these activities are at risk due to climate change.

    Rep. Tipton, the dangers of climate change are real and present in your district. Its effects are numerous and include extreme weather, public health risks, and business impacts. We urge you to act on climate and mitigate the threats of global warming to our unique way of life.

  • Protect the Endangered Species Act

    Sincerely,

  • Protect Clean Car Standards

    Transportation is the single largest producer of greenhouse gases in the United States. Freezing car emissions standards at 2020 levels for the next six years will allow billions of tons of dangerous pollution to continue to enter our atmosphere. For the sake of the air we all breathe, I strongly urge you not to roll back the national clean car standards that protect our health and environment, and to maintain states' abilities to set higher standards.

  • Tell Congress: Say no to clean energy cuts

    Last month, the Trump administration sent an order asking for deep cuts to clean energy research. Tell your representatives in Congress to reject those cuts and keep funding our future.

  • Tell your senators: Vote no on dangerous anti-environment riders

    A spending bill just passed the House with many anti-environment riders in tow, including a repeal of the landmark Clean Water Rule that helps keep drinking water for 1 in 3 Americans safe. Other harmful riders threaten the health of our land, air and wildlife.

    It's not too late to stop these dangerous anti-environment riders in the Senate, but only if your senators hear from you. Your senators need to know that you won't stand for a spending bill that puts our environment at risk.

  • Join our call on leaders to do all they can to move us toward clean, renewable energy.

  • Don't let the EPA put the brakes on clean cars

    You should be strengthening clean car standards, not putting the nation in reverse.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell your representative: Vote no on any spending bill that threatens our environment with riders.

    The House will be voting any day now on a spending bill containing over a dozen dangerous policy riders, including a repeal of the Clean Water Rule, which helps keep drinking water for one-third of Americans safe. Other riders threaten our land, air, forests and wildlife.

    There's too much at stake to let these riders slip through. We've succeeded in defeating dangerous anti-environment riders before, but to win again we need to speak up. Your representative needs to know that you won't stand for a spending bill that puts the quality of our environment and the safety of our drinking water at risk.

  • Tell our governor to support a ban on plastic straws

    Plastic straws are convenient, but are they worth the cost?

    Tragic examples of the toll single-use plastic waste takes on animals and our environment have made front page news in recent months, from the whale that washed up on a beach in Spain with 64 pounds of plastic lodged in its stomach to a hard-to-watch video of scientists pulling a plastic straw out of a sea turtle's nose.

    And still, we're making the problem worse: We throw away an estimated 175 million plastic straws every single day here in the U.S.

    Ask our governor to choose wildlife over waste and support a statewide ban on plastic straws.

  • Join our call to go 100 percent renewable

    Join our call on leaders to do all they can to move us toward 100 percent clean, renewable energy.

  • Tell President Trump: The EPA deserves a leader who believes in its mission

    Finally, Scott Pruitt is out as the EPA administrator. With just over a year in office, Pruitt took action to repeal 22 environmental regulations -- including gutting the Clean Power Plan, the Clean Water Rule and clean cars standards. It's heartbreaking.

    Now, President Trump has the chance to nominate someone who will protect our environment. Someone who will defend this country's most precious resources -- our land, water, and air. Someone who will live up to the mission of the EPA.

    Tell President Trump to nominate an EPA leader who will be a true protector of the environment.

  • Tell Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke: Offshore drilling isn't worth the risk

    Secretary Zinke,

    Eight years after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the damage to the Gulf of Mexico still lingers: Oil residue has hurt the deep-sea microbe populations that form the base of the ocean food chain, potentially causing wide-ranging harm to ocean health. I urge you to prevent future disastrous oil spills by halting the opening of our waters to more offshore drilling.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell our governor: Keep kids safe. Ban chlorpyrifos.

    Chlorpyrifos is the most widely used pesticide in U.S. agriculture, and exposure to it has serious consequences.

    The EPA recognized the risks and banned indoor use of chlorpyrifos more than a decade ago. But chlorpyrifos is still sprayed on crops like corn, apples, strawberries and oranges, leaving families -- and especially children -- vulnerable.

    Tell our governor to ban chlorpyrifos and protect our health today.

  • It's time for Colorado to ban polystyrene foam

    Containers made of polystyrene foam never fully break down. Every single piece of polystyrene ever manufactured is still out there today, harming wildlife and our environment. Tell the governor to support a statewide ban on polystyrene.

  • Keep the Grand Canyon safe from uranium mining

    The Grand Canyon is one of the most incredible sites on Earth. It holds a special place in our heritage and our national identity, and it deserves our protection.

    I urge you to keep this natural wonder safe for future generations. Please uphold the 20-year moratorium on uranium mining on the public lands surrounding Grand Canyon National Park, and make those protections permanent.

    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 governor to declare a moratorium on bee-killing pesticides.

  • A day at the beach shouldn't make us sick.

    We shouldn't have to worry about getting sick while swimming at the beach. Yet the Trump administration's proposed FY 2019 budget completely eliminates the BEACH Act grants program, which helps pay for testing water at our beaches and alerting the public when it's unsafe to surf and swim. Tell your representatives: Protect our health, fund the BEACH Act.

  • Tell the EPA: Don't allow sewage where we swim

    Docket No. EPA-HQ-OA-2018-0259

    The mission of the Environmental Protection Agency is to protect human and environmental health. Restricting the types of science that the EPA can use in regulatory decision-making would undermine the EPA's ability to carry out this mission, and needlessly put the health of our families at risk.

  • Tell the CEO of Cargill to help stop tropical deforestation

    Dear Dave MacLennan:

    Tropical forest destruction drives out the orangutans, elephants, jaguars and other threatened or endangered animals that live in the forests. What's more, scientists estimate that razing forests to make way for crops or cattle accounts for 10-15 percent of the pollution that's warming the planet and changing the climate. As one of the biggest players in the world's food market, Cargill is in a position to help save our tropical forests. I urge Cargill to honor its 2014 pledge to end deforestation in all of its supply chains by 2020.

Stand up for our water and don't cut back on coal ash regulations.

  • Add your name: Support solar energy in your community

    Solar energy can and should be a much larger part of our energy mix than it is today. With solar energy alone, we have the potential to produce 100 times more power than the total amount of energy we consume each year. More solar energy also means we'll have cleaner air and water, and that we're acting to combat climate change. Therefore, I support action in my community that accelerates the development of solar energy.

    Each year, millions of bees die off due in part to a widely used class of pesticides called neonicotinoids. But instead of banning these toxic pesticides, the Environmental Protection Agency is considering allowing them to be sprayed on 165 million acres of previously protected farmland.

    With 700 bee species at risk of extinction, we can't afford to wait for the EPA to take action. Tell your governor to support a statewide ban on neonicotinoids.

  • Tell Secretary Zinke: All our oceans deserve protection

    Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke,

    Our oceans are vital to the lives and livelihoods of coastal communities, small businesses and marine wildlife, all of which are threatened by the proposal to open our coastal waters to offshore drilling.

    I urge you to listen to the communities, small businesses, governors and the millions of Americans from Florida to Alaska who have voiced their opposition to offshore drilling.

    Our oceans deserve to be protected. I urge you to exempt them from offshore drilling today.

    Sincerely,

  • Urge Governor Hickenlooper to cut pollution and deliver on the Paris Climate Agreement!

    After the president announced last year that the United States would withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement, Governor Hickenlooper said not so fast. He joined fourteen other governors and 2,500 leaders of cities, counties, corporations and universities in committing to slash pollution on their own.

    Members of this coalition are acting, putting new rules in place to cut pollution and accelerate clean energy development.

    Colorado can step up and do more to cut pollution, as well. We can set tough limits on power plant pollution. We can accelerate wind and solar power development. And we can get more zero-emission cars and trucks on the road.

    Governor Hickenlooper needs to hear from you, rather than dirty energy interests, to forge ahead.

  • Protect our oceans from offshore drilling

    The Trump administration just released their plan to open virtually all our oceans to offshore oil drilling -- and they're accepting your public comment today. You and I and every American who cares about clean and healthy oceans need to make our voices heard before it's too late.

  • Why risk our oceans for a bit more oil?

    Deepwater Horizon was the worst oil spill in American history, killing thousands of dolphins, sea turtles and other marine wildlife, and exposing Gulf residents to toxic chemicals that will linger for years. But now President Trump is trying to roll back the rules we put in place to keep a disaster like Deepwater Horizon from happening again.

  • Protect our oceans from offshore drilling

    The Trump administration just released their plan to open virtually all our oceans to offshore oil drilling -- and they're accepting your public comment today. You and I and every American who cares about clean and healthy oceans needs to make our voices heard before it's too late.

  • Tell our governor: Support pro-solar policies in Colorado

    Clean, renewable solar energy has been growing at an amazing rate over the past 10 years, but our current Congress and president seem intent on propping up all the dirty energy sources that we know belong to the past -- not the future. It's time to take action right where we live and call on our governor to support policies that will expand solar energy here in Colorado.

  • Join our alumni team for 100 percent renewable energy

    As a hotspot of innovation and expertise, your college or university is uniquely positioned to help accelerate the transition to a clean energy future. Alumni and students will be instrumental in winning strong renewable energy commitments. Join our alumni team to show your alma mater that there is broad support for powering your campus with 100 percent renewable energy.

  • Tell the EPA to ban toxic bee-killing pesticides

    Millions of bees are dying off every year, due in part to the widespread use of neonicotinoids. Now, a recent study reveals how common the pesticide is, with 75 percent of all honey worldwide revealing contamination.

    If we lose the bees, the consequences for our environment and our food supply could prove catastrophic. I urge you to ban the neonicotinoid pesticides that are killing bees.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell your elected officials: Hands off wind and solar power, reject the tax bill

    The tax bill passed by the Senate late Friday night includes an obscure provision that could stifle wind and solar energy. The House version of the bill also scraps key renewable energy tax credits. If the final bill includes either or both of these provisions, it "would have a devastating ... impact on wind and solar energy," according to renewable energy industry leaders. Send your elected officials a note today urging them to oppose the bill.

  • Tell your senators: Rebuild Puerto Rico and the U.S. 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 of 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 electrical grid 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

    Dear Sens. Bennet and Gardner, 

    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.

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • Tell Scott Pruitt: Protect our clean car standards

    Docket EPA-HQ-OAR-2015-0827

    Administrator Pruitt:

    I urge you to keep in place 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 the right thing for our health and environment and keep the standards in place.

    Sincerely,

  • Save our national monuments

    Secretary Zinke,

    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 Bears Ears, Katahdin Woods & Waters and more are preserved for future generations to enjoy.

    Sincerely,
  • 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'.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Senators are trying to gut the Endangered Species Act, putting wolves, sea otters and more than a thousand other species at risk of extinction. We need you to tell your senators: Defend the Endangered Species Act and stop this dangerous bill.

  • No free pass for polluters

    Tell your representative to vote against a reckless bill that would weaken accountability for polluters.

  • 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,

  • Protect the Grand Canyon from uranium mining

    Secretary Zinke,

    The Grand Canyon is one of America's iconic places, as much a part of our national identity as the bald eagle or the Statue of Liberty. It's one of the places that makes America beautiful, and it deserves to be protected.

    I urge you to protect this unique natural wonder for future generations by blocking reckless and short-sighted efforts to open the surrounding land up for uranium mining.

    Sincerely,

  • Protect Our National Monuments
  • Colorado should lead on climate action

    Abandoning the Paris Climate Agreement will risk our health and the future of our planet. And if Washington, D.C., won’t act on climate, we need to take the lead. Tell our governor to curb climate change by cutting pollution today.

  • Defend our national monuments

    The Trump administration could be the first in U.S. history to revoke national monument protections. The first to lose protection could be Utah's Bears Ears, home to incredible scenery and thousands of years of historical artifacts. Our national network is joining together to tell Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to keep Bears Ears protected.

  • Tell Sen. Gardner to protect our air

    The U.S. Senate is set to vote this week to roll back methane waste regulations that protect Colorado’s air and our families’ health. Senator Cory Gardner is a critical undecided vote on this legislation, and your voice could make the difference.

    Send a note to Sen. Gardner’s office right now urging him to vote no on repealing protections for Colorado’s air.

    Methane is a potent climate change pollutant and a serious threat to human health. And right here in Colorado, it’s an issue we’re tackling head on. In fact, the federal rule that the Senate may vote to repeal is based on a successful law that our state pioneered.

    On behalf of Colorado’s families, our air, and the public lands we love, Environment Colorado urges Sen. Gardner to vote against rolling back the methane waste rule. At a time when swiftly transitioning to renewable energy to reduce global warming pollution is the only responsible course of action, voting to make Colorado’s air dirtier takes us in the wrong direction.

    Send a note to Sen. Gardner’s office right now telling him that you agree.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.


    Thank you Senator Bennet for supporting the Clean Power Plan. 

  • 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.

  • Tell your governor to support policies that will light the way to a clean energy future.

    Even with some states leading the pack on solar, our nation still only gets one percent of its energy from the sun. Solar is growing, but we must do more to stand up to massive fossil fuel special interests. Sign now for a brighter future today.  

  • 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. 

  • Tell AG Coffman: Don't stand with the polluters!

    The Clean Water Rule became law on Friday across the country, but Colorado attorney general Cynthia Coffman has short-circuited these protections for our rivers and streams. Tell her to withdraw her lawsuit.

  • 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?

  • 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 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.

  • President Obama just approved the biggest step for clean water in a decade!

    President Obama just restored Clean Water Act protections to thousands of America's waterways.

    Celebrate this historic victory by thanking the president.

  • 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 nation's governors to commit to getting at least 20% of our power from the sun by 2025.

  • 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 your senators: Be a clean water champion

    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. 

    Send a message to your senators urging them to move forward on clean waternot backward.
