  • 🚨 DEADLINE 🚨 for comments to #StopTheWilliamsPipeline is TODAY! The proposed fracked gas pipeline would tear up New York Harbor and the Rockaways and kick up toxic substances. Text “PIPELINE” to 21333 to protect New York’s waterways and stop reliance on dirty fossil fuels! 🌊

  • When former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke asked his number two, David Bernhardt, to overhaul the Endangered Species Act, who do you think he consulted with? Not environmentalists. Instead, Bernhardt gathered input from mining, fossil fuel, and logging interests before proposing to cripple our landmark species conservation law. And now Bernhardt is in charge of the Interior Department. Under his leadership, the Endangered Species Act is endangered. But it's not too late to fight back. Visit the link in our profile to take action! 💪

  • The Trump admin. is trying to strip away protections for gray wolves. We can’t let that happen. Take action! https://on.nrdc.org/2XOkoGt

  • Here’s a sobering statistic: Particulate matter is responsible for more deaths each year in the United States than homicide and traffic accidents combined. We’ve long known that particulate matter—the super tiny bits of airborne pollution that come from power plants, vehicles, factories, incinerators, engines, and anything else that combusts fossil fuels—causes heart attacks, asthma, and lung cancer. Now, a new study attributes about 107,000 premature deaths per year to fossil fuel–driven air pollution. It’s clear we need to strengthen public health protections like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Power Plan—not tear them down. Take action using the link in our profile!

  • It’s heartening to see so many people wanting to know what they can do to address the climate change crisis. Helping to protect the boreal forest is one great way to get active in this fight, because the amount of climate-changing carbon that is currently stored in Canada’s boreal forest is massive: Even if we burned all the oil we could possibly extract from every fossil fuel reserve around the world, it would actually release LESS than the amount of carbon stored in the boreal. So we must keep that carbon in the forest—which means stopping logging companies from destroying the boreal—in order to avoid catastrophic warming.

  • Monarch butterflies are important pollinators that help sustain wildflower growth across the country.🌸 However, the overuse of pesticides like glyphosate kills off milkweed, the one plant monarch caterpillars need to survive. The US needs to take immediate action to help protect monarchs! Join our fight by visiting the link in our profile.
