More Wind, Less Warming

American wind power already produced enough energy in 2013 to power 15 million homes. Continued, rapid development of wind energy would allow the renewable resource to supply 30 percent of the nation’s electricity by 2030, providing more than enough carbon reductions to meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed Clean Power Plan.

Report: U.S. power plants world’s 3rd largest carbon polluters, edging out India

Reducing global warming pollution

Together, we’ve made hard-won progress in the race to protect our children from the worst consequences of global warming. This past June, after more than 3 million Americans urged President Obama to act on climate, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed a rule to limit carbon pollution from power plants — the single largest sources of global warming pollution.


Global Warming Solutions

Nobody wants our kids to inherit a world where floods in Genesee County and devastating drought—or worse—are the new normal. That’s why it’s so important we reduce the pollution fueling global warming. The less we pollute now, the safer our climate will be for future generations. We’ve launched a campaign to get information to more than 1 million Americans about the local impacts of global warming, the threats of power plant pollution, and the impact President Obama’s Clean Power Plan will have on our children’s future.
