While California is considering many good bills to address fracking, one bill threatens to codify weak industry friendly regulations – AB 7 (Wieckowski).

There are more than 600 coal-fired power plants in the US and they account for more than 50% of the toxic pollution, including heavy metals like arsenic, lead, and mercury, in our water. This pollution affects everyone and it’s time to do something about it. You can make the difference – send a message to the President today!
Thankfully the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will soon propose new policies to require coal-fired power plants to limit the amount of toxic pollutants they dump in our water. These policies are more than thirty years overdue. Unfortunately the coal industry and power companies are already trying to block them. We need you to take action - Urge President Obama to move forward with plans for strong protections from toxic coal plant wastewater by sending him a letter today!

Clean energy in Connecticut is under attack. Northeast Utilities is
pressuring DEEP and our legislature to water down Connecticut's clean
energy commitments. Instead of supporting clean energy like wind and

corporate giveaway to Northeast Utilities and Hydro-Quebec.
We need you today! Send a letter of support for a new standard that will prevent exposure to toxic chemicals that make fires more deadly and are linked to serious long term impacts on public health and the environment.
