Go Big On Offshore Wind

Thanks in part to our research and action, the nation’s first offshore wind farm is now in operation, three miles off the Rhode Island coast. But it’s just the beginning.

 

Developing the wind areas already approved off the Atlantic Coast could power 6 million homes. But, unlocking more of offshore wind power’s potential depends in large part on America’s Atlantic Seaboard states and their governors.

Global Warming Solutions

A greener, healthier world requires each of us to do all we can to eliminate the pollution and practices that are warming the planet and changing our climate. Environment America Research and Policy Center takes concrete steps to move us closer to the world we want to live in, from promoting the fossil fuel divestment movement to accelerating the transition to cars that don’t pollute.

Get the Lead Out

Medical experts estimate that more than 24 million American kids are at risk of losing IQ points due to lead exposure. Our research finds many of these kids will be exposed to lead in their schools’ drinking water. That’s why we’re working to Get the Lead Out.

Environmental Defense: The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

One of the most spectacular wildlife migrations in the world takes place each spring and summer on the coastal plain of America's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. Some 200,000 caribou migrate hundreds of miles annually to give birth there. Millions of migratory birds flock there to nest. Polar bears and cubs den on the coastal plain over the winter. And, due to this abundance of wildlife, for thousands of years the native Gwich’in people have depended on this biological jewel for survival, with a culture centered around the caribou herd.
