Current Actions

  • Take action: Oppose Scott Pruitt for head of EPA

    Dear Senator,

    I urge you to reject the nomination of Scott Pruitt for EPA administrator.

    Americans deserve an EPA administrator who is guided by science, respects and enforces the law, and will work tirelessly to protect the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the planet we call home.

    Scott Pruitt's track record indicates that he will not meet this test.

    Sincerely,

  • Take action: Oppose Scott Pruitt for head of EPA
  • Close fracking loopholes in our bedrock environmental laws

    Since 2005, the oil and gas industry has fracked over 137,000 wells, used over 6 billion pounds of chemicals (including potential carcinogens), and produced billions of gallons of fracking wastewater. Yet the fracking industry is exempt from regulation by the EPA. Now more than ever, it's urgent that we close loopholes in our nation's key environmental laws that exempt the fracking industry.

    Join us in calling on Congress to close the loopholes that leave us vulnerable to toxic contamination of our drinking water.

  • Thanks, Mr. President!

    Dear President Obama,

    From protecting the water we drink and the places we love, to leaving our children a safer, more livable climate, thank you for an environmental legacy that all Americans can be proud of.

    Sincerely,

  • No bees, no food

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

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

  • Tell your senators: Keep the Arctic and Atlantic protected forever

    Some members of Congress are gearing up to overturn President Obama's ban on all future offshore oil and gas drilling in the fragile regions of the Arctic and Atlantic. Tell your senators: The Arctic and Atlantic are worth protecting!

  • ACT NOW: Protect the Grand Canyon

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

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

  • Protect Chaco Canyon from fracking

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

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

  • Thank President Obama for saving the Arctic!

    President Obama just retracted plans to open drilling in the Arctic. This will protect wildlife like polar bears, whales and walrus as well as moving us away from fossil fuels. Let him know how much it means to you:

  • 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 Department of Justice to protect consumers, farmers, and the environment by blocking the Monsanto-Bayer merger.

  • Add your name: Save the monarch butterfly
  • Add your name: Save the monarch butterfly
  • Stop plans to frack Big Cypress

    Big Cypress is home to wildlife like sandhill cranes, river otters, and endangered Florida panthers. Fracking would destroy this important habitat. Tell the Department of Interior not to let frackers trample Big Cypress.

  • Tell the EPA to declare a moratorium on bee-killing pesticides
  • "Thanks for protecting Maine's North Woods!"

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

    Add your name to say thank you.

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

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

    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.

  • Celebrate 100 years of national parks!
  • Move forward with cutting carbon emissions from transportation

    As global temperatures continue to break records, we need to cut the pollution that's making the problem worse.

    The Obama Administration's Department of Transportation is considering a rule that would require state and metropolitan transportation organizations to track, measure, and set goals to reduce carbon pollution as well as other air pollution from transportation projects.

    This new measure would help reduce global warming pollution, while increasing investment in public transit, expanding zero-carbon transportation like walking and biking, and cleaning up the air we breathe. But it won't happen without your support. Tell the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Environmental Protection Agency you support new rules to curb pollution from transportation.

  • Swarm the EPA!

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

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

  • Stand up for rooftop solar

    All over the country, officials are considering changes that could hurt rooftop solar. Sign to let your regulator know that solar must be a big part of our energy future.

  • Stop fast-tracked pipelines

    Right now, we have the chance to end a senseless program that fast tracks the construction of pipelines in our nation's wetlands, which provide habitat for many animals and plants, not to mention the critical role they play in improving water quality. Add your name to help us end this program and protect our vital wetlands.

  • Halt the use of glyphosate

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

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

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

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

  • Fracking: A health nightmare

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

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

  • Tell Tyson to stop polluting our waters

    Tyson Foods is a huge water polluter, but they won't clean up their act unless they hear from people like you. Add your name now to tell Tyson to stop polluting our waters.

  • Help protect our oceans from global warming

    Today on World Oceans Day, we need our leaders to do everything to protect our oceans, especially from climate change. Your governor has the power to dramatically cut carbon pollution from the biggest source in the U.S. -- power plants -- and shift to a renewable energy future.

    Let's make sure your governor knows that protecting our oceans is another reason to cut carbon pollution. Sign today.

  • 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.

  • Protect the red wolf

    There are only 45 red wolves remaining in the wild. They're facing extinction and they need our help.

    Tell the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to expand -- not disband -- the Red Wolf Recovery Program.

  • 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.

  • Tell President Obama: No new drilling!

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

  • Tell Congress: Not. One. Acre.

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

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

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

  • Keep our public lands public!

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

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

  • Tell Bayer to stop producing bee-killing pesticides

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

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

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

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

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

  • Tell Congress: Not. One. Acre.

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

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

  • Factory farms are destroying our waters

    Pollution from factory farms and other corporate agribusinesses is polluting our waters on a massive scale, but nobody is forcing them to clean up their act, and they won't change unless we demand it. Add your name now!

  • Tell the EPA: Ban bee-killing pesticides

    The EPA is considering limiting one of the pesticides that's been linked to the bee die-off -- but their window for feedback is expiring on April 14. Add your name now to save the bees.

  • Get the lead out of our schools' drinking water

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

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

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

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

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

  • Protect the Grand Canyon from mining

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

    Tell President Obama to protect the Grand Canyon by designating the 1.7 million acres of lands and waters around the park as a national monument.

  • 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 enjoy them for the next 100 years.

  • No new offshore drilling!

    Twenty-seven years ago, the Exxon Valdez oil tanker struck a reef and dumped 11 million gallons of oil off Alaska's coast, spreading more than 1,300 miles and killing hundreds of thousands of wildlife. Today, the Obama administration has plans that would allow new drilling in the Arctic and the Gulf, risking our climate and communities. Tell President Obama: No new drilling!

  • Solar for Target

    I support Target putting solar panels on all of their stores by 2030! By doing so, they could power nearly a quarter million homes and remove 12 million cars worth of global warming pollution. 

  • 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.

  • Thank the president for saving the Atlantic Coast!

    President Obama just retracted plans to open drilling in the Atlantic Coast. This will protect marine wildlife like dolphins, sea turtles, and endangered right whales. Let him know how much it means to you:

  • 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 the USDA: Stop burying bee-saving science
  • Urgent action needed for our drinking water

    Our aging and corroded water infrastructure throughout the country is failing at an alarming rate. And the stakes couldn't be higher: the very water we drink. Thankfully, a bill was just introduced that would go a long way toward fixing this problem.

    Take action now, and let's convince our senators to support much-needed upgrades for America's drinking water.

  • Tell Warren Buffett: Stop Attacking Rooftop Solar!

    Rooftop solar is good for the environment and good for consumers. Send Warren Buffett an email today to tell him to stop attacking rooftop solar!

  • Thanks for being a real climate sweetheart!

  • Join the call to go 100% Renewable

    We can have healthier communities right now and a livable future for kids growing up today. 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.

  • Save our coasts from offshore drilling

    Our coasts are home to stunning wildlife and incredible beaches, from the bald eagles and loggerhead sea turtles in the Chesapeake Bay to the white sandy beaches of the Outer Banks.

    But offshore drilling is putting our natural heritage and marine life at risk. Even the standard operations of offshore drilling rigs kill and injure wildlife and threaten human health and the economy. And when major disasters happen -- such as the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon blowout -- they are catastrophic.

    Please join us in telling the Obama administration to: "Save our Coasts. No offshore drilling!"

  • Gov. Hickenlooper holds the key to a safer climate

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

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

  • Thanks for standing up for clean water, again
    President Obama vetoed polluters' latest attack on the critical clean water protections we helped win.
  • It's time to take action on climate
  • Protect our communities and our climate from methane disasters

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

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

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

  • 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.

  • Help Protect White River National Forest from Drilling

    With well pads, compressors, pipelines and hundreds of truck trips, fracking in our national forests would mean turning our most special places into industrial zones.

    The Colorado Bureau of Land Managment (BLM) is proposing to block fracking wells from breaking ground in White River National Forest and the Thompson Divide, but the oil and gas industry is working to block their action.

    We need to tell the BLM to stand strong against the oil and gas industry and protect White River National Forest from further development.

    Here are the dirty details: The BLM just released its draft analysis of 65 illegally issued leases in the Thompson Divide and nearby roadless areas on the White River National Forest. The agency's proposed action is good; it calls for full or partial cancellation of 25 leases inside the Thompson Divide and it would add protections for roadless areas in White River. The plan is a good step in the right direction, but BLM can and should do better. Sign the letter below asking them to cancel all the illegally issues leases in Thompson Divide and White River National Forest.

  • The most important thing you can do to solve global warming

    President Obama is moving forward with the biggest action we’ve seen in years to fight global warming. Unfortunately, our leaders in Congress have vowed to do everything in their power to block the president and protect polluters. With so much at stake, we can’t let them kill this plan—that’s why we need you to stand with us today.

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

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

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

  • Tell the governor: Support local control of fracking

    Communities from Longmont to Boulder have taken steps to place local bans on fracking, which puts water at risk of contamination and threatens public health. However, the oil and gas industry wants to keep fracking wherever they want and they're challenging these bans in the Colorado Supreme Court.

    We need the governor to show his support for the communities he represents, instead of backing dirty drillers. Sign on to our letter telling him to support local control of fracking:

  • Make wind power a major part of America's clean energy future!

    This year was a major milestone as construction began on America's first offshore wind project but unfortunately, Congress allowed the main federal tax incentives for wind energy to expire in 2014 -- leaving the future of wind in peril. Don't let Congress stand in the way of our clean energy future.

  • We're for clean water

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

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

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

  • #ExxonKnew

    Sign to demand the Department of Justices launches a formal investigation into Exxon for misleading the public and risking the health of the planet:

  • 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. 

  • 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:

  • Say thanks for defending clean water

    A bill designed to kill the Clean Water Rule was defeated recently in the U.S. Senate, and Senator Bennet voted for restored protections for Colorado's waterways and drinking water.

    Send him a quick note of thanks now for defending clean water.

  • The showdown over water is now

    Contact your senators!The long-expected showdown in the U.S. Senate over clean water will now happen in a matter of days.

    This is your last chance before the vote to convince your senators to do the right thing by protecting clean water. Contact your senators now.

  • Nothing to fear from clean water

    Water is our most precious resource, but the threats to our waterways and drinking water are downright frightening. Tell Congress there is nothing to fear from clean water, but plenty to fear from not protecting it.

  • 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.

  • Keep it in the ground

    Scientists now warn, "If we burn it all, we melt it all." That’s why we must keep most of the Earth’s fossil fuels where they belong: in the ground.

    Tell your senator you oppose lifting the oil export ban.

  • Move forward on clean water

    The historic clean water protections that you helped win have been suspended nationwide, and could be overturned.

    We simply can't allow our country to go backwards on clean water. Tell the more than 20 Attorneys General who are holding up the Clean Water Rule, to do the right thing and drop the cases.

  • Don't let BP write off the Gulf Coast disaster

    The BP Deepwater Horizon blowout took a massive toll on our environment, the region's wildlife, and nearby communities. For three months after the initial explosion, millions of gallons of crude oil and thousands of tons of methane spewed from the sea floor. Eleven people were killed and dozens more injured. Five years later, we are still suffering from the impacts.

    BP was found "grossly negligent" for its role in the disaster, however, their settlement will be almost entirely tax deductible. Tell the Department of Justice to deny BP tax write offs for its remaining payments to address the 2010 Gulf Coast disaster.

  • Urge the governor to support local control

    As local efforts to control fracking come under fire from the oil and gas industry, Governor Hickenlooper is taking the side of the frackers. Fracking has been linked to air and water pollution, putting our health and environment at risk. It's no surprise that cities and counties are banning it, but the governor still refuses to support these communities. 

    Please urge your local elected official to sign onto our letter telling the governor to support local control of fracking. 

  • Reauthorize the LWCF

    For 50 years, the Land and Water Conservation Fund has protected watersheds and drinking water, preserved our national heritage, and conserved natural areas and open space for wildlife and recreation -- all while providing sustainable, local jobs to communities across America.

    Back in 1965, Congress made a promise to all Americans to use funds generated from offshore oil and gas leasing to conserve our precious landscapes and create close-to-home parks for the public to use and enjoy. But this Congress broke that promise when they failed to reauthorize the LWCF by the Sept. 30 deadline. They still have the opportunity to do the right thing by the end of the year.

    Tell Congress to reauthorize and fully fund the LWCF now.

  • Ban the beads

    Tiny microbeads can be a big problem for our environment, causing harm to aquatic habitats and wildlife. Tell Congress to pass a strong bill that bans all plastic microbeads in personal care products.

  • Hold Senator Gardner accountable for his actions against our water

    Senator Cory Gardner cosponsored legislation recently to kill the Clean Water Rule, which restores protections for Colorado’s waterways and drinking water. Senator Gardner has chosen to do the bidding of polluters rather than defend clean water. Let him know what’s really important to Coloradans.

  • Voice your support to clean up trucks!

    After a summer like this, we know we need to do everything we can to tackle global warming pollution. Making trucks go farther on a gallon of fuel can curb pollution, help save the planet, and save money.

    Voice your support NOW for cleaning up dirty trucks!

    Tell the EPA to pass the strongest possible rule -- to reduce pollution from medium- and heavy-duty vehicles by 40% by 2025!

  • Tell the EPA to hold VW accountable

    hold VW accountable

    Volkswagen repeatedly violated the Clean Air Act for the last 6 years. Their "clean-diesel" cars could be emitting up to 15-35 times more smog-forming pollution while on the road than was showing up on their emissions tests.

    This is UNACCEPTABLE: Sign our petition to tell the EPA that we need to prosecute Volkswagen to the fullest extent of the law.

  • Save our ocean's natural treasures

    The Obama administration is considering permanently protecting two of the nation's most magical underwater habitats. These areas are home to a remarkable diversity of ocean life from endangered right whales to sea turtles, but without protections, these fragile habitats and the animals that call them home are at risk.

    Urge President Obama to protect these national treasures before it's too late.

  • Keep it in the ground

    Scientists now warn, "If we burn it all, we melt it all." That's why we must keep most of the Earth's fossil fuels where they belong: in the ground.

    Tell Congress you oppose lifting the oil export ban.

  • We want clean water, not polluted water

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

  • Protect our rivers from toxic mining pollution

    The disaster on the Animas River reminds us that, for far too long, the mining industry has polluted our rivers. Forty percent of the West's headwaters are now contaminated with pollution from mines.

    President Obama has the authority to put a moratorium on all new mines near our waters on public lands.

    The hard rock mining industry should not be allowed to build new mines in and around our cherished waterways until it cleans up from past mining operations. Please add your name.

  • 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. 

  • No drilling in the Arctic

    The U.S. Department of the Interior just granted conditional permits for Royal Dutch Shell PLC to begin drilling off the coast of Alaska in the Chukchi Sea.

    Tell President Obama this is a big mistake.

  • Protect public lands from fracking

    As the oil and gas industry seeks to expand fracking on public lands across the country, including near our national parks and areas that provide critical drinking water for millions of Americans, now is the time to call on our elected officials to take a stand against dirty drilling.

    The Protect Our Public Lands Act would ban fracking on all federal lands, protecting our most special places from fracking's dangerous and destructive impacts. While the only way to truly protect our environment and our health from fracking is to ban it outright, some places are just too precious to drill and frack and that includes our parks, canyons and forests. 

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

  • Don’t let Colorado’s rivers lose

    Colorado’s Attorney General Cynthia Coffman has abandoned restored protections for our waterways and drinking water to defend big polluters in the courts. The recent decision to file a lawsuit against the Clean Water Rule puts the drinking water of nearly 3.8 million Coloradans at risk to pollution.

    Tell AG Coffman to withdraw from the lawsuit for the health and welfare of all Coloradans.

  • 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.

  • The time is now to go big on solar 

    ame-cleanwater-action-fba.jpg

    We know 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 Governor Hickenlooper to support getting at least 20% of our power from the sun by 2025.

    Amplify our call by adding your name.

  • Stand up for clean power

    President Obama finalized the Clean Power Plan, the biggest step we've ever taken to tackle the climate crisis -- and predictably, climate deniers almost immediately attempted to block it. It's up to us to defend it.

    Will you add your name in support of clean power?

  • Stand against pesticide pollution of our water

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

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

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

  • Protect our parks and special places

    In less than 50 days, our nation's most successful conservation program could end.

    From the Grand Canyon to the parks and trails in our own backyards, the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) has set aside and protected special places for the past 50 years. Don't let Congress let it die.

  • Clean energy and the Clean Power Plan

    Attacks against advancement and attempts to turn back the path of process are rampant in our nation. Policies such as The Clean Power Plan and Clean Energy Incentive Program are essential for not just our children's future, but also to protect our current way of life. However, with big coal and other special interests fighting to keep things just as they are, we need to do more to make sure these policies remain in place.

    Solar, energy efficiency, and wind are the best ways to assure that the clean power plan is successful. We know clean energy solutions work, and we know how to make them available for all.

    Sign to help the EPA implement affordable energy solutions as a part of the Clean Energy Incentive Program.

  • Thank the president for acting on climate



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

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

    Tell President Obama to protect the Grand Canyon and its watershed from uranium mining by creating a new national monument.

  • Thank President Obama for supporting solar for all

    Solar is often viewed as an option only available to the upper middle class and wealthy. President Obama just took an important step to help remedy that and make sure that all Americans have the right to choose clean energy.

    Thank you for sending a letter to the President thanking him and letting him know we back his efforts to expand solar energy for all.

  • 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.

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

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

  • Don't let polluters win

    The final Clean Water Rule restores protections for the places we swim, fish and hike, as well as the drinking water for 117 million Americans.

    But polluters’ friends in Congress are trying to gut these protections with their dirty water bills. For the health and welfare of our citizens, we can’t let that happen.

  • 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?

  • Protect our parks!
    For more than 100 years, American presidents have used a law called the Antiquities Act to preserve our most treasured natural areas, from the first National Monument created by Teddy Roosevelt, Devil’s Tower in Wyoming, to the Statue of Liberty, to our newest National Monument, Browns Canyon in Colorado. Now, some in Congress want to eliminate the Antiquities Act and stop protecting our most beloved landscapes, leaving North America’s oldest ponderosa pine forest open to logging, the Grand Canyon watershed suspectible to toxic mining, and the wild stretches of Idaho and southern Oregon at risk. We need to keep this law in the books to help ensure these lands won’t be sold to the highest bidder, but protected and preserved forever.

    Email your member of Congress today and urge them to vote to protect the Antiquities Act and protect our parks.

  • Don’t let polluted politics foul our waters

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

    Right now, Colorado'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 3.77 million Coloradans 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 Coloradans who want to move forward with protecting our waterways and drinking water.

  • Thank President Obama for protecting Browns Canyon

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