    Congress is Saying Goodbye to an Environmental Leader

    After decades of standing up for the environment, Representative Jim Moran announced his retirement from Congress. Over the past two decades representing northern Virginia in Congress, Rep. Moran has been an incredible ally who has pushed for action on climate change, fought to protect our air and water, and consistently stood up to Big Oil and corporate polluters.

    He has served as Chairman and ranking member of the Interior and Environment Subcommittee on Appropriations, and ...More

    It Is Cold, And Climate Change is Real

    Temperatures across the country have been dropping recently thanks to the polar vortex, which happens when a whirlwind of Arctic air spills southward. These cold temperatures have brought the climate change deniers out in full force. Instead of simply recognizing that it’s sometimes cold in winter, these deniers want you to believe that climate change isn’t real. They’re choosing to ignore NASA, the U.S. military, and the 97 percent of climate scientists that have said ...More

    Environmental Priorities We Are Watching in the New Year

    If you care about the environment, 2014 will be a big year. From Keystone XL to holding climate change deniers accountable and implementing the President’s Climate Action Plan, the new year will be an important one. Here’s the big three priorities we’re watching:

    Holding climate change deniers accountable. Congress has too many elected officials who are trying to sweep their extreme anti-science positions under the rug. We made progress calling out the climate change ...More

    Wind Energy and Why It Is Important

    Increasing America’s production of clean, renewable energy should be common sense, but there are many groups backed by corporate polluters who are trying to kill wind energy tax credits. These tax credits help our nation move away from dirty fossil fuels that worsen the climate crisis, pollute the environment, and harm our health. They also grow our clean energy economy, and create good-paying jobs that cannot be outsourced.

    There are two key tax credits designated ...More

    Our Work to Amplify Latino Voices in the Environmental Movement

    Several years ago, community members in the neighborhood of Little Village, a largely Latino community in southwest Chicago, were suffering from major health problems because two coal-fired power plants were polluting their air. Residents suffered from high rates of asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory illnesses and they were fed up with these coal plants making them sick. So they started taking action, creating the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization (LVEJO) and working together with ...More

    100 Days of Speaking Out About Climate Change

    The SCC was formed in February 2013 as a way to facilitate conversations in the House of Representatives about the climate crisis we are facing. There are more than 30 Members of Congress who are part of the SCC, and ...More

    Senator Reid Standing Up for Democracy and Reforming the Filibuster

    Last week, Senator Harry Reid took the first steps to break the gridlock in Washington by standing up for our democratic system and reforming the filibuster. This procedural rule change allows President Obama’s nominees to receive a simple majority rather than 60 votes, and prevents a few obstructionists from playing political games with highly qualified nominees.

    Remember back in July when Gina McCarthy’s nomination to become the next Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator was being ...More
