Attacks on public health defeated—for now.

The coal lobby and their allies are trying to block the EPA from protecting public health, but we’ve held the line: In March 2011, the U.S. Senate rejected a bill that would have blocked standards for soot, mercury and carbon pollution. In April 2011, the Senate defeated four more bills to cut air pollution.

Bringing more clean energy to Iowa

It's clean. It's renewable. It's local. And thanks to our steady effort, we've doubled American wind capacity in just the past four years. Together, we'll call on our leaders at the local, state and national level to invest in more renewable energy like wind power, and keep moving Iowa forward on the path to a clean energy future.

Now we'll make sure big polluters and their allies in Congress don't stand in the way of these critical public health safeguards.

Thanks to your support, our national team and a coalition of beekeepers, farmers and others delivered more than 4 million petitions calling on the Obama administration to declare a ban on neonicotinoids, a class of bee-killing pesticides.
