EPA Administrator Pruitt is unfit to lead the federal agency that protects our public health, environment, and economy. During his time in office, Pruitt has worked to silence scientists and derail dozens of environmental safeguards that protect our clean air, clean water, public lands, and climate. We need to replace him with someone who will stand up for the American people rather than polluters.
Protecting Maine's Environment
National Security Impacts of Climate Change
Climate change threatens America’s national security as well as communities around the world. Extreme weather, food and water scarcity, and sea-level rise caused by climate change can lead to political instability and even war. The U.S. military, intelligence community, and world nations are taking these threats seriously. Watch videos of our recent forums, featuring Senator Angus King and others.

NRCM is dedicated to making information available on issues facing Maine’s environment and the people who rely upon it. Our publications, including our Maine Environment newsletters, will, we hope, help you better understand the topic of interest and provide you with information that you can use in your own work on behalf of the people, wildlife, and environment of Maine.
