Solar for All

Millions of Americans are ready to go solar so we can power our lives and our communities with clean, renewable, local energy. Yet some utilities and other special interests want to throw new obstacles in the way. Our Solar for All campaign is working to knock those barriers out of the way.

Save the Monarch

As the monarchs begin their 3,000-mile fall migration, we need to make sure this migration isn't their last. That's why we're calling on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to declare the monarch butterfly a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act.

Save the Boundary Waters

Mining companies are pushing to conduct a toxic new form of mining, called sulfide mining, right next to the Boundary Waters. Runoff from sulfide mining can create toxic sulfuric acid and cause mercury contamination—both of which could flow into the Boundary Waters and pollute this precious area. We need President Obama to make sure we don't risk this natural treasure by allowing dangerous sulfide mining in Boundary Waters watershed.

Protect the Grand Canyon

Many Americans know the Grand Canyon for its mesmerizing crevices, carved by the water flowing at the base of the Canyon. However, there are streams and creeks inside the Grand Canyon that are contanimated by radioactive uranium leaching from abandoned mines just a few miles from the national park's borders. Despite clear evidence of the harm these mining activities have had on the environment, the mining industry has been campaigning to overturn current temporary bans on uranium mining around the park. We think it's time to extend those bans, not end them.

Protect Minnesota's Rivers

Polluting industries have put our nation's waters in jeopardy by carving loopholes in the Clean Water Act, leaving 46,000 miles of Minnesota's streams open to pollution. Join our call to restore the law's protection to all of our waters.

Protect Minnesota's Rivers

In 2015, our decade-long battle with polluters and their allies in Congress paid off when President Obama restored federal protections to more than half the nation’s streams, which feed drinking water sources for one in three Americans. With your support we can defend the progress we've made.

No Bees, No Food

Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. We rely on bees to pollinate everything from almonds to strawberries to the hay used to feed dairy cows. What happens if the bees disappear? It’s simple: No bees, no food. Let's give bees a chance.

It's time to reveal America's next top polluter ...

Who is America’s next top polluter? It’s not who you might think. Research shows that today one of the biggest threats to our water is how big corporations are running—and ruining—many of America’s farms.

Go Solar, Minnesota

While more of us are trying to go solar, dirty energy companies keep putting up new roadblocks. We’re urging our leaders to go big on solar and leave dirty energy behind.

Global Warming Solutions

President Obama has a plan that’s been called “the strongest action ever taken by an American president” to tackle global warming. Our new leaders in Congress have vowed to do everything in their power to stop him. Stand with the president for our health and our future, not the polluters.
