Make a difference in the challenge to confront climate change, promote clean safe energy, and prevent the development and use of nuclear weapons.
When natural gas and oil are extracted, methane -- a potent greenhouse gas -- leaks into the atmosphere from the wells, compressors, pipes and other infrastructure. Tell EPA to regulate methane now!
With your help we are working to reduce the threat of nuclear war, educate the public about the dangers of climate change, demand safe, clean energy, and warn about global consequences of limited nuclear war. So many of you have supported us all year long in so many ways, we made this video for you. Watch to see some of the scenes from our expert tours, testimony, Facebook chats and media outreach.
