Take Action: Stop a Flood of Natural Gas Exports
Legislation has been introduced in both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives that would rubberstamp exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the U.S. without any review or protections in place for the American public and our environment. This would essentially open the floodgates for natural gas exports, leading to more hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") here at home and more climate-disrupting pollution.
Tell your senators and representative to oppose legislation that would rubberstamp liquefied natural gas exports!
Take Action: Tell the Senate to Protect Clean Energy Jobs
Last week, the Senate Finance committee moved to extend a package of critical clean energy tax credits, including the production tax credit for wind. We need the Senate to vote on this package immediately to ensure that clean, cheap, American-made clean energy continues to grow.
Please tell your senators to bring the EXPIRE Act to the floor and vote yes.
