Current Actions

  • 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,

  • Defend the Places We Love

    Dear Sens. Heinrich and Udall,

    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.

    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
  • Tell the EPA to protect clean water

    Dear EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt,

    The Clean Water Rule protects waterways that help provide drinking water to one in three Americans. I urge you to leave the rule intact.

  • New Mexico 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.

  • Tell your governor: Defend clean air and climate

    President Trump is making a huge mistake, risking our health and the future of our planet. If Washington, D.C., won't act on climate, we need our governors to take the lead here at home. Tell your governor to curb climate change by cutting pollution today.

  • Tell your governor: Defend clean air and climate

    President Trump is making a huge mistake, risking our health and the future of our planet. If Washington, D.C., won't act on climate, we need our governors to take the lead here at home. Tell your governor to curb climate change by cutting pollution today.

  • Tell Secretary Perry: Don't Undermine State Renewable Standards

    Secretary Perry,

    I am concerned by your recent comments hinting that you might intervene with state renewable energy standards. Twenty-nine states now have renewable energy standards -- and if we're serious about avoiding the worst impacts of global warming and getting to 100 percent renewable energy, we should encourage more to join them. Please stay out of the way of states who are acting to improve their communities by pursuing stronger renewable energy policies.

  • Defend the Places We Love

    Dear Interior Secretary Zinke,

    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 protect Organ Mountains, Rio Grande Del Norte, and all our national monuments. These special landscapes and cultural treasures are part of what makes this country great and should be protected and expanded, not diminished or developed.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Interior Secretary Zinke: No seismic blasting in the Atlantic

    Former President Obama did the right thing when he banned offshore drilling in parts of the Atlantic and denied permits from oil companies seeking to use seismic blasting to discover oil below the ocean floor.

    Now, President Trump has reopened parts of the Atlantic to offshore drilling, and six companies are asking the Department of the Interior to approve their seismic blasting permits -- which will harm marine life and contribute to our dependence on fossil fuels.

    Please send Interior Secretary Zinke a message and urge him to deny all seismic blasting permits.

  • 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.

  • Protect Bears Ears National Monument
  • Tell EPA Administrator Pruitt: Don't ignore the science on chlorpyrifos

    Numerous government studies have all pointed to the same conclusion: Chlorpyrifos, diazinon and malathion harm nearly 1,800 endangered or critically threatened species. But Dow Chemical, manufacturer of chlorpyrifos, is urging the Environmental Protection Agencies to ignore these studies and to decline to regulate these dangerous pesticides.

    Tell EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt: Don’t ignore the science on these pesticides.

  • This Land Is Our Land

    Dear Interior Secretary Zinke,

    From Utah’s Bears Ears to Hawaii’s Papahanaumokuakea, from Arizona’s Grand Canyon-Parashant to California’s Giant Sequoia, some of our most incredible natural treasures are protected today as national monuments.

    They’re part of what makes this country great, ensuring that future generations can enjoy their beauty as well as the culture and history surrounding them.

    I urge you to honor and affirm all of our national monuments. Our families today and for generations to come are counting on you.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Congress to protect our oceans

    President Trump is working to open the Atlantic, Arctic and Pacific to drilling. Tell your senators and representative to oppose the president's disastrous plans for our oceans.

  • Tell your senator: Vote 'No' on this dirty, dangerous budget

    The president's budget would eliminate EPA funding for climate change programs. Tell your senators to reject this dangerous and short-sighted budget.

  • Tell your senator to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    Two U.S. senators just introduced a bill that would protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from oil and gas drilling. Urge your senators to vote 'Yes' for refuge protections.

  • 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.

  • Tell your senator: Vote ‘No’ on this dirty, dangerous budget

    Dear Senator,

    President Trump’s proposed federal budget would virtually eliminate EPA funding for proven programs that are cleaning up the the Great Lakes, Chesapeake Bay, Puget Sound, San Francisco Bay and more.

    These regional programs have already made a difference. They’ve improved toxic pollution hotspots, restored coastal wetlands and worked to keep invasive species like the Asian carp out of the Great Lakes.

    I urge you to reject any dangerous and short-sighted budget that cuts funding to these successful clean water programs.

    Sincerely,

  • Protect Bears Ears National Monument

    Secretary Zinke,

    Bears Ears National Monument is a valuable addition to our country's wonderful natural heritage. It, along with the other parks, forests, monuments and other public lands we love, deserves our protection.

    Yet some short-sighted members of Congress are urging President Trump and yourself to revoke Bears Ears' national monument designation under the Antiquities Act -- the very act that Teddy Roosevelt enacted to protect our natural heritage.

    I urge you to support and defend the Bears Ears National Monument designation.

    Sincerely,

  • 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.

  • Protect the waters we love

    Dear Senator,

    When it comes to our streams, rivers, lakes and wetlands, the waters we love deserve to be protected.

    But the new administration and Congress have 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 pledge to block any and all legislation to roll back protections to our clean water.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell your governor to commit to 100 percent renewable energy

    States have always been at the forefront of climate progress. Now more than ever, we need states to lead the way towards a clean energy future. Urge your governor to make a commitment to a rapid shift to 100 percent renewable energy.

  • Protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    Dear Senator,

    I'm writing to urge you to designate the Arctic Wildlife Refuge as a protected wilderness. This incredible place is home to polar bears, whales, seals, caribou and other wildlife. Unfortunately, attempts to bring oil and gas drilling to the region threaten to destroy the habitat that these animals need to survive. Additionally, it is now more important than ever that we leave fossil fuels in the ground, given the increasing number of extreme weather events caused by climate change.

    Thank you,

  • 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,

  • Take action: Oppose undermining the Endangered Species Act

    Dear Representative,

    I urge you to reject HR 717, the Listing Reform Act, and other bills like it that would undermine the Endangered Species Act.

    The Endangered Species Act is a cornerstone of environmental protection, and since it was enacted in 1973, 98 percent of species listed as endangered have survived.

    HR 717 would undermine that success and allow short-sighted financial interests to stand in the way of protecting endangered and threatened species.

    I urge you to vote no on HR 717.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell your senator: support renewable energy in New Mexico

    New Mexico is the second sunniest state in the country and twelfth windiest. We should be a national leader in renewable energy, yet we lag behind states like New Jersey, Massachusetts and Kansas.

    Environment New Mexico, with our partners, is leading the charge to increase our Renewable Energy Standard so that large utilities get 80 percent of their electricity from solar, wind and geothermal energy by 2040. The bill, SB312, is sponsored by Sen. Mimi Stewart of Albuquerque and Rep. Nathan Small from Dona Aña County.

    Email your state senator and ask him or her to support increasing renewable energy in the Land of Enchantment. Please add a personal statement to the email, especially at the beginning.

  • 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.

  • Stand up for the Arctic

    Dear Senator,

    The Arctic is a place of unique beauty, and home to one of the most fragile and sensitive ecosystems in the world. This pristine region should be protected, not exploited for oil and gas and made vulnerable to the unnecessary risk of oil spills.

    Please stand up for the Arctic and reject Senate Bill 49, the Alaska Oil and Gas Production Act.

    Sincerely,

  • 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.

  • Thank the Albuquerque City Council

    The Albuquerque City Council unanimously passed a resolution to get 25 percent of the electricity for city facilities from solar energy by 2025. This will put Albuquerque on a path to becoming a national leader in solar energy.

    More solar energy will reduce air and water pollution and will save the City approximately $3.6 million each year when they reach the goal.

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Get the lead out of our school's 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!

  • 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. Martinez 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.

  • 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.

  • 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:

  • Save the bees and our Thanksgiving favorites

    No bees means no ...

    Take action to save the bees. Tell the EPA to ban bee-killing pesticides known as neonics.

  • 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:

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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. 

  • 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.  

  • Tell Murray Energy to clean up its act

    Murray Energy, the largest private coal company in the nation, recently filed a lawsuit to derail the Clean Water Rule.

    It’s bad enough when coal companies pollute our rivers and streams, but now Murray is mucking around in our courts. Please add your voice today.

  • 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 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.

  • Tell Governor Martinez not to fight clean water

    Governor Martinez’s administration has abandoned common sense and science 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 281,000 New Mexicans at risk to pollution.

    Tell Governor Martinez to have her adminstration withdraw from the lawsuit for the health and welfare of all New Mexicans.

  • Protect the Grand Canyon from mining

    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.  

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Tell Congress to protect The Great Lakes

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • Urgent: help us support solar energy
    New Mexico should be a world leader in solar energy and one way to get there is to extend the state’s solar tax credit this year.

    Gov. Martinez has called a special legislative session for Monday, June 8, and we need our legislators to include the solar tax credit in the tax package. 

    New Mexicans know that increased affordability and accessibility for solar is good for our environment, economy, and health. Extending the solar tax credit will grow the clean energy industry in the state: this helps clean our air and water, improves public health, and creates jobs. All New Mexicans will benefit if the solar tax credit is extended. 

    Please email your legislator and ask them to include this important tax credit during the special session. 

    Only New Mexico zip codes will be able to send. 

  • Urgent: contact your legislator about solar energy

    Gov. Martinez may call a special legislative session to deal with outstanding issues from the recent legislative session. One very important bill that was pocket vetoed by the Gov. was an extension to a tax credit for residential, commercial, and agricultural solar installations.

    This tax credit is good for New Mexico: it would support solar energy, which helps clean our air and water, improves public health, and creates jobs.

    Speaker Don Tripp, Majority Floor Leader Nate Gentry, President Pro Tempore Mary Kay Papen, and Senate Finance Committee Chair John Arthur Smith are critical in getting the solar tax credit included in the tax package.

    Please email these key leaders and ask them to include this important tax credit during the special session.

  • Tell your Representative to vote YES on SB 391

    SB 391, Extend Solar Market Development Tax Credit, sponsored by Sen. Mimi Stewart is ready to go to the House floor. This bill extends the current tax credit for residential, commercial, and agricultural solar installations that is set to expire on Dec. 31, 2016. An amendment extends the current 10% tax credit through 2018, drops to 9% through 2020, then tapers off one percent a year through 2024.

    Solar energy is great for New Mexico. It reduces air and water pollution, improves public health, and creates jobs. This tax credit has assisted the booming local industry, which grew 73% from 2012 to 2013, for a total of 1,900 solar jobs in New Mexico.

    As the second sunniest state, we only get 2% of our electricity from the sun – far below our potential. SB391 already passed the Senate with strong bipartisan support (37-5), and we need the House of Representatives to do the same.

    Please email your Representative below and ask them to vote YES on SB 391. Please personalize your email – it will make it stand out from others and carry greater weight.

  • The PRC wants to hear what you think

    PNM has proposed to shut down two of four units at the San Juan Generating Station, reducing the amount of energy New Mexico gets from coal. Their proposal is to utilize some coal from the remaining coal units, build more gas plants, bring more nuclear energy onto the grid, and build some solar capacity. The Public Regulatory Commission (PRC) is making final decisions about how PNM will replace energy generated from San Juan. We want to have as much renewable energy as possible.

  • Tell AK Steel Corp to stop polluting America's waterways

    Industrial facilities continue to dump millions of pounds of toxic chemicals into our waterways — threatening both the environment and human health.

    In fact, AK Steel Corp dumped 14.5 million pounds of toxic releases into America's waters in 2012, a significant portion of the 206 million total pounds of toxics dumped into America's waterways that year.

    Polluters should be held accountable for their actions. Please sign the petition to urge AK Steel Corp to stop polluting America's waters.

  • Tell President Obama: Declare our nation’s parks and forests safe from fracking.

    Oil and gas companies have expressed interest in fracking 12 million more acres of public lands -- and the Obama administration is on the fence whether to let them have it.

    Please tell the president: Do not allow fracking in our national forests or near our national parks.

  • 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, New Mexico’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 281,000 New Mexicans 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 New Mexicans who want to move forward with protecting our waterways and drinking water.

  • Tell Mayor Berry and the ABQ City Council: Don't bulldoze the Bosque!

    Last week, the City of Albuquerque began plowing a trail through the Bosque with no notice to the public or comment taken. A 6-foot-wide trail has been bladed and leveled from Central to I-40, impacting the most sensitive riverfront part of the ecosystem.

    The city had promised to allow the public to review and comment on specific design options and to conduct an environmental review before any plan was adopted and undertaken.

    Councilor Isaac Benton has now introduced a resolution that would halt the construction and require the mayor to comply with environmental and cultural resource laws. The bill will be considered Wednesday, Feb. 18. Please use the form to send a note to the Albuquerque City Council telling them not to bulldoze the public's trust by continuing construction on our beloved Bosque! Please edit the sample note to use your own words. Your comments are more effective when they are personalized.

    That's why we're urging our leaders to commit to getting at least 25% of our power from the sun by 2025.

  • Tell your Congress members: Be a clean water champion

    The proposed clean water rule would restore protections for nearly 100,000 miles of New Mexico's streams. Will Congress heed the more than 800,000 Americans who have called on the EPA to protect our drinking water and ensure the health of our streams? Or will Congress cater to the polluters and developers who want to pollute our waterways and pave over our wetlands? 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 Congress members urging them to move forward on clean water by making a public statement in support of the clean water rule.

  • Protect the Chaco area from the Piñon Pipeline

    Northwestern New Mexico is home to great rivers, badlands, and Chaco Culture National Historical Park. Denver-based corporation, SaddleButte LLC, has applied to the Bureau of Land Management to build a 130-mile oil pipeline through this sensitive area.

    The pipeline would permanently cut through federal, state, Navajo, and private lands, opening the floodgates to thousands of new oil wells, millions of gallons of contaminated groundwater, damaged archeological sites, diminished recreation economy, dangerous accidents and further climate disruption.

    Make your voice heard by emailing the BLM and tell them to say "no" to the Piñon Pipeline. Please edit the subject and personalize the beginning of the letter. Personalized messages are often taken more seriously.

  • Go big on solar

    Call on the governor to commit to getting at least 25% 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.

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

    AME_Global_Warming_landing_image.jpgPresident Obama just 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.

    Sign the petition to the EPA supporting limits on carbon from power plants:

  • Keep fracking away from Chaco Canyon 

    landing-page-action-NME.jpgFracking close to ancient pueblos? Near a landscape dripping with thousands of years of history and culture?

    Nothing about it is a good idea.

    Yet oil and gas companies have put a proposal on the table to frack within a quarter mile of New Mexico's Chaco Canyon. We've got to send a strong message to our decision-makers that New Mexicans aren't going to stand by and watch dirty and dangerous fracking threaten a sensitive and sacred place like Chaco Canyon.

    Will you tell our decision-makers to keep drillers away near one of the best places in New Mexico?

    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.
