Stop Methane Pollution!

7.3 million metric tons.

That's how much methane the gas industry spills into our nation's air every year. Considering that methane is 86 times worse for climate change than carbon dioxide and is emitted alongside air toxics and other unhealthy pollutants, that spells bad news for our future.

Tell Pennsylvania DEP: Lead is Dangerous

Although the public input process for Northampton Generating Company's (NGC) proposed lead increase ended months ago, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has yet to make a decision whether or not to increase lead pollution from NGC. Please tell them (again) that increasing lead pollution is a clearly dangerous proposition.&n

Stop the Elcon Hazardous Waste Burner

 Bucks County was the only county in Pennsylvania to have two dangerous "Red Ozone Days" in 2013. In 2014, it was second only to Philadelphia and Pittsburgh in "orange" air quaility days where children, the elderly and asthmatics are at risk of respiratory damage.

Support Clean Energy In Pennsylvania

Today, under the EPA's Clean Power Plan to limit carbon pollution from power plants, Pennsylvania has an unprecedented opportunity to transition away from dirty fossil fuels and towards a cleaner, healthier future based on renewable energy and energy efficiency. By developing a strong plan to comply with the Clean Power Plan, Pennsylvania can save thousands of lives while creating jobs, lowering electric bills, and preventing the worst effects of climate change.

Say No to the Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline!

The proposed Atlantic Sunrise pipeline would span 178 miles through eight counties in Pennsylvania. If approved, it would directly impact the lives of thousands of people living in these communities.

Protect Coal Workers

Coal workers need your support. The Healthy Employee Loss Prevention Act (HELP Act) will create a program to help former coal workers find new jobs as the U.S.

Keep America in the Wind Industry

Pennsylvania has squandered its jobs in the wind industry. There used to be 4,000 wind jobs in Pennsylvania, but now, with the closure of the two Gamesa turbine manufacturing plants in Cambria and Bucks Counties in March, there are almost none. One big reason for these closures is the expiration of the production tax credit (PTC) for wind energy, giving the wind farm 2.3 cents per kilowatt hour of wind energy generated. This small subsidy helps create good jobs in renewable energy.

Demand a Hearing on Proposed Westmoreland County Shale Gas Power Plant


Report Shale Gas Air Pollution NOW

Clean Air Council is announcing a new auto-alert system for notifying relevant agencies about odors, noises or visible emissions that residents suspect are coming from natural gas operations in their community. 

DEP Needs a New Public Input Process

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP) is currently revising a policy on how the public will be allowed to participate in the permitting of polluting facilities. Many of these policies and procedures, for instance, will directly impact how residents living near polluted facilities will be able to participate in decisions about shale gas infrastructure in Pennsylvania.  This is your chance to tell PA DEP what you think about their proposed policy changes and make your own suggestions.
