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.

Restoring the Katy Trail — and the rest of our state parks

We mobilized hundreds of Missourians, local businesses and elected officials to call on President Obama to preserve our parks. And this past spring, our work paid off when the president fully funded the Land and Water Conservation Fund — America’s premier land conservation program. Together, we’ll make sure our special places are protected for generations to come.

But illegal and unauthorized ATV and SUV trails have ripped up the banks and degraded water quality. Now the Current River is one of the nation’s 10 most endangered rivers, and it needs protection. Last fall, at the urging of our staff and members, the National Park Service proposed a plan to guide the Current River for decades to come.
