As students across the country begin a new semester, Environment America Research & Policy Center is launching a campaign on dozens of campuses, pressing colleges and universities to generate 100 percent of their energy from renewable sources. The initiative aims to get 150 schools to commit by 2021 to exclusively using renewable energy.
In 2019, Environment America and its state affiliates played a key role in convincing New Mexico, Maine and Washington to make commitments to 100 percent clean or renewable energy. On the heels of those landmark victories, the national nonprofit organization announced today it is calling on fifteen additional states in 2020 to enact similar renewable energy goals.
One-third of all Americans live in areas that suffered through at least 100 days of poor air quality due to air pollution in 2018, according to a new report by Environment America Research & Policy Center, Frontier Group and U.S. PIRG Education Fund.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has finalized a rule that leaves half the nation’s wetlands and thousands of streams -- which help provide millions of Americans with drinking water -- without the federal protection of the Clean Water Act.
Vanderbilt University announced today its first step in implementing the school’s commitment to 100 percent renewable energy. The university will partner with the Tennessee Valley Authority and Nashville Electric Service to procure renewable energy from a 35 megawatt solar farm to be built in Bedford County, Tenn.
