We helped win the single biggest action our country has ever taken on climate

Under the newly announced Clean Power Plan, gas and coal power plants will pollute 32 percent less and clean energy sources such as wind and solar will meet much more of the nation’s electricity needs. Environment America is proud of the role we’ve played to galvanize public support for this historic plan. With continued commitment from President Obama and state leaders, and strong backing from the American people, this will mark a giant shift toward the 100 percent clean energy reality that the climate crisis demands and future generations deserve.

Citizen Group responds to Current River Plan

The National Park Service’s draft General Management Plan for the Ozark National Scenic Riverways offers potentially tremendous improvements in protection and restoration for two of Missouri’s most beautiful rivers.  The NPS released the draft GMP on November 8th, after almost 9 years of delays.  The NPS will select one of the three alternatives presented in the draft plan and use it to guide the management of the park for the next twenty years.  Environment Missouri’s response may be found at http://environmentmissouri.org/reports/moe/official-comment-ozark-national-scenic-riverways-draft-general-management-plan.

The public can find the plan on the NPS website and may comment on the plan until February 7th, when the plan will undergo final review and approval by the NPS.  “While the NPS favors Alternative B, which they argue will provide the most balance between uses of the park, we think Alternative A—which does the most to restore the river for future generations to experience and enjoy—is the alternative that best conforms to the NPS’ original goals in establishing the park.” said Keating.  “Alternative A will close the most illegal roads, create the most miles of hiking trails, and restore more of the park to its 1964 state than the other alternatives.”

America's Dirtiest Power Plants

Global warming is one of the most profound threats of our time, and we’re already starting to feel the impacts – especially when it comes to extreme weather. From Hurricane Sandy to devastating droughts and deadly heat waves, extreme weather events threaten our safety, our health and our environment, and scientists predict things will only get worse for future generations unless we cut the dangerous global warming pollution that is fueling the problem.
