Tell EPA to Value Healthy Air
EPA is accepting public comment on the proposed ozone standards that, if left as is, ignores the latest science and leaves us unprotected. Now is the time to improve ozone standards that then drive reductions in air pollution emissions. Speak up before October 1st to tell EPA that you oppose the status quo and they must strengthen the ozone health standard and set a specific standard for ecosystem health and vitality.
Celebrating the Great American Outdoors Act
With the recent enactment of the Great American Outdoors Act, the Land and Water Conservation fund will receive its full $900 million a year, and new funding will be available to address long-neglected maintenance needs on our national parks, forests and other public lands.
Thank your members of Congress today for making this historic victory a reality.
Support Cleaner Transportation Solutions
Cars and trucks are the biggest greenhouse gas polluters. There is a regional plan to look at a suite of solutions to our transportation footprint that would modernize how we travel while considering equity and alternatives to fossil fuel powered vehicles. Ask your Governor to join the plan today.
Tell Congress to Stop EPA Rollbacks
We all count on the Environmental Protection Agency to protect human and environmental health using the best science available. But even now at the height of the COVID-19 crisis in the U.S., EPA is doing the opposite. Speak up today to urge Congress to ask EPA to hit pause on dangerous proposals to roll back environmental protections.
Ask Your Legislators to Fund Land for Maine's Future
The popular and successful Land for Maine’s Future program needs your help. Over 30 years, the Land for Maine’s Future program has conserved more than 600,000 acres across the state, ensuring that some of our most beautiful and important places will remain open to all of us, forever. Now the program needs an infusion of funding. State legislators need to hear from us, their constituents, that we care deeply about access to the fresh air, open space, beauty, (and seafood!) that make Maine different.
Support Climate Action in Your State
The lack of leadership in addressing climate change at the federal level means your state leaders need to know that you support climate initiatives and energy efficiency investments at the state and local level. Let your Governor know where you stand.
