Current Priority

Right now, one issue we’re focused on is transitioning to 100 percent clean, renewable energy. We have the power to harness clean, abundant energy from the sun and the wind, and we can do it more efficiently and cheaply than ever before. That’s why we’re calling on cities — and our state — to commit to 100 percent renewable energy.

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. We’re taking concrete steps to move us closer to the world we want to live in, including our Regional Climate Action and Destination: Zero Carbon campaigns. More...

Conservation

Our parks, forests, streams and rivers, and the wildlife that depend on them help define Pennsylvania and who we are as people. They need our protection, especially as our public lands and waterways are threatened by fracking and drilling, plastic pollution contaminates our rivers putting wildlife at risk, and bees and other pollinators die off in unsustainable numbers. More...


 

Environmental Defense

The price of a clean and healthy environment is, to paraphrase Thomas Jefferson, eternal vigilance — especially now as President Trump and his allies in Congress push to dismantle protections for our climate, our rivers and streams, our public lands and our oceans. The green firewall in defense of America's environmental protections starts here in Pennsylvania. More...
