The Trump administration recently proposed changing how it implements the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), one of our nation’s foundational environmental laws.
NEPA was enacted 50 years ago to ensure federal agencies consider the environmental consequences of their actions and engage with the public about them. It’s helped improve the quality of our air, water and ecosystems while giving members of the public a greater voice in their communities’ health.
Speak out now and urge the White House to reconsider proposed changes that will move NEPA away from its intended purpose.
America needs to honor our commitments to global climate action. Call for strong and continued U.S. leadership.
The lands that the endangered Florida panther calls home are at risk. Only 180 of these majestic cats are left, and every acre of habitat is critical. Make your voice heard to help.
We can’t protect our nation’s clean air, water and natural places unless we preserve critical conservation funding.
Invasive species run amok in our lakes, parks -- and even in our own backyards. They overrun native plants and damage the lands and waters that plants and animals need to survive.
Congress is close to taking a critical step to reduce U.S. energy use -- an essential strategy in the fight against climate change. But unless they hear from you now, this vital legislation will go unpassed, increasing threats to nature and communities.
There’s a leafy superhero in your backyard. How much do you know about the power of trees?
Reconsider NEPA Overhaul
I urge the White House to reconsider the proposed overhaul to the National Environmental Policy Act. Changes like cutting down review times and limiting consideration of indirect and cumulative impacts, which could make it more difficult to take into account factors like climate change, will not improve outcomes for people or nature and will move this critical law away from its intended purpose. At this critical time when our natural world needs greater protection, not less, we should not constrain the consideration of environmental impacts.
