Environmental Defense: Our Climate

We all want a safe, healthy future for our children and grandchildren. That’s why we need to do all we can on global warming. Yet President Trump wants to dismantle protections that limit global warming pollution from power plants, cars and trucks, and other sources. We’re working to defend and strengthen climate protections.

Clean, Green & Renewable Energy

In a greener, healthier world, we would conserve more, use the energy we have more wisely and efficiently, and rely only on sources of energy that are clean, renewable and tread lightly on the planet.
The question is, what concrete steps can we take to move closer to the world we want to live in? And given the current administration’s myopic preference for older, dirtier energy sources, where can we realistically take those steps right now?

Clean Water & Air

In a greener, healthier world, all of us would treat our air and water as the precious life-giving resources they are, not as dumping grounds for our waste. Environment America Research and Policy Center takes concrete steps to move us closer to the world we want to live in, from holding illegal water and air polluters accountable to networking local citizens who serve as champions of the local waters they love.

Clean Car Communities

To slow global warming, we need to change what we drive. We’re calling for all new cars and trucks to be electric by 2035. We know our leaders in Washington, D.C., are going the wrong way on this issue. That’s why our Clean Car Communities campaign is paving the way for cities and states to lead the way for cleaner transportation.

100% Renewable

We’re promoting a bold and clear vision of a greener, healthier world, one powered solely by clean, renewable energy. We’re also taking concrete steps right now that will bring us closer to the world we want to live in. Our 100% Renewable campaign is focused on the arenas in which we can make the most immediate progress, like states, cities, and college and university campuses.
