Protecting Stornetta

Our coast is incredible. Whether taking in the sandstone cliffs of La Jolla Cove, taking a weekend camping trip to Big Sur or watching whales swim along Point Reyes, every inch of our shoreline offers something special. That is why we worked to hard to expand California’s federally protected coastal landscape, the California Coastal National Monument, to include the 1,600 acres of the Stornetta Public Lands on the north coast.

Protect California's Waterways

Polluting industries have put our nation's waters in jeopardy by carving loopholes in the Clean Water Act, leaving 139,000 miles of California's streams open to pollution. Join our call to restore the law's protection to all of our waters.

No More Nuclear Disasters

Japan’s Fukushima disaster is a wake-up call for Californians: Our use of nuclear power means we’re gambling with the environment and our health. With so many clean energy alternatives available, we don’t need nuclear power to provide renewable, carbon-free electricity.

Program

No Fracking in California

Big Oil wants to use millions of gallons of our water, lace them with toxic chemicals, and frack for oil from Sacramento to L.A. Talk about a bad idea. If we let oil companies unleash this hugely controversial drilling process, we’ll be in for an environmental nightmare.

Keep Plastic Out of the Pacific

In just a few years, our movement to stop plastic pollution has grown by leaps and bounds, from Los Angeles to Marin, with single-use plastic bags now banned in more than 100 communities. Together, we can achieve a statewide ban — saving more sea turtles and other wildlife by keeping plastic out of the Pacific.

Go Solar, Los Angeles!

Los Angeles has tremendous rooftop solar potential, yet less than 2% of our energy comes from the sun. We can and must do more. By putting solar panels on homes, schools and businesses, Angelenos can reduce air pollution, fight climate change and create jobs.

Program

Go Solar, California

More and more Americans are going solar, meeting more of our energy needs in a way that’s clean and local. Unfortunately, dirty energy companies are putting up new roadblocks at every turn. Our research shows that the cities and states with the most solar power aren't the ones with the most sunshine—they're the ones with the best pro-solar policies. That’s why we’re urging California's leaders to go big on solar and leave dirty energy behind.

Global Warming Solutions

Global warming is real and it’s happening now. The good news is it can be solved with solutions like renewable energy, energy efficiency, cleaner cars, and a cap on carbon. By enacting smart policies and innovative solutions, we can dramatically cut pollution and be a leader for the rest of the country.

Expand Yosemite

Yosemite National Park has captivated millions of Californians, tourists, hikers and even visionaries like John Muir. But shortly after becoming a national park, hundreds of acres of land were stripped from Yosemite and were given to loggers, miners and the railroad industry. Now we're fighting to get that land back.

Charge Ahead California

Transportation is the single largest source of global warming pollution in California, creating pollutants that harm our environment and our health. But California can get in the driver’s seat and lead the transition from dirty vehicles to clean electric cars, trucks and buses.
