EPA Administrator Pruitt is unfit to lead the federal agency that protects our public health, environment, and economy.

We need to replace him with someone who will stand up for the American people rather than polluters. Read our news release.
Protecting Maine's Environment
National Security Impacts of Climate Change
Climate change threatens America’s national security as well as communities around the world.

Help Protect Fish River Lakes from Irving Development
Canadian conglomerate J.D. Irving Ltd. has filed a proposal to rezone more than 51,000 acres of land in northern Maine, near the Fish River Lakes. Irving’s concept plan, the second largest rezoning application in Maine's history, will set a precedent for future rezoning projects in the North Woods, and NRCM is intervening in this process to examine the facts and raise our concerns.
