Stop Fracking Our Future

Across the country, fracking is contaminating drinking water, making nearby families sick with air pollution, and turning forest acres into industrial zones. Yet the oil and gas industry is pushing to expand this dirty drilling—to new states and even near critical drinking water supplies for millions of Americans.

Save the Boundary Waters

Mining companies are pushing to conduct a toxic new form of mining, called sulfide mining, right next to the Boundary Waters. Runoff from sulfide mining can create toxic sulfuric acid and cause mercury contamination—both of which could flow into the Boundary Waters and pollute this precious area. We need President Obama to make sure we don't risk this natural treasure by allowing dangerous sulfide mining in Boundary Waters watershed.

No Bees, No Food

Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. We rely on bees to pollinate everything from almonds to strawberries to the alfalfa used to feed dairy cows. What happens if the bees disappear? It’s simple: No bees, no food.

Global Warming Solutions

 
President Obama’s Clean Power Plan is “the strongest action ever taken by an American president” to tackle global warming. But some of our leaders in Congress have vowed to do everything in their power to stop the plan. Stand with the president for our health and our future, not the polluters.

Conservation America

 
Our parks, forests and public lands are a big part of what makes this country so great. They’re where we go to spend time outdoors with our families and friends, to hike, bike, fish and see wild animals. Yet instead of helping to protect and preserve our parks and other special places for our kids and future generations, some leaders in Congress have other ideas.

Clean Energy for Minnesota

Too much of our energy comes from dirty sources that harm our environment—but it doesn't have to be that way. We can harness pollution-free, homegrown energy from the wind and the sun. It's clean, local, and never runs out.
