Clean Air For California

Trucks in our cities and towns are a major source of air pollution. These same trucks could move to zero emission vehicles. This week the California Air Resources Board approved the Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) rule which will move truck fleets in CA to zero emissions. This is a great victory for clean air, public health and global warming. This campaign was years in the making. Organizations worked together to organize the tactics needed for a victory. For years Environment California has supported this action. Our role has been one of supporting the other voices in this campaign.

We're keeping California safe from fracking.

We have seen disastrous fracking operations rolling across the country, and now Big Oil wants to frack throughout California, putting our air, water and land at risk. Environment California members and allies helped bring together the coalition of Californians Against Fracking, and in 2013 more than 100,000 Californians called on the governor to protect our state and ban fracking. Thousands more called on the Coastal Commission to stop fracking off our coast.

We're standing up for state parks.

When Gov. Jerry Brown’s administration announced a short-sighted plan to close 70 state parks, we swung into action. By speaking directly with tens of thousands of Californians and building a strong coalition of business owners, environmental groups and local officials, we quickly sounded the alarm and mobilized people from all walks of life to save our parks.

We helped expand Yosemite.

In 2013, Environment California worked to protect a 1,600-acre wildlife corridor that connects Yosemite National Park to the Sierra National Forest. More than 10,000 Californians signed petitions, and the State Legislature unanimously passed a resolution urging Congress to expand Yosemite. In March, Environment California went to Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s office in D.C. to the deliver the petitions, and she sponsored a Yosemite expansion bill one month later.
