Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court is a clear indication that the Trump Administration is determined to enact their polluter agenda in all government branches. We need a Supreme Court Justice who will uphold landmark environmental laws like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act, but Judge Kavanaugh has a history of siding with polluters over the public, including ruling against EPA’s ability to clean up cross-state pollution from coal-fired power plants. Tell our Senators to oppose his nomination.

Stop Trump's Rollback of the Endangered Species Act
The Trump Administration has proposed new rules stripping the ESA of numerous important protections, drastically altering the heart of the Endangered Species Act and prioritizing industry profits over conservation. The public has 60 days to weigh in on this plan. Submit your comment to the Department of Interior today.
Oppose CMP's Proposed Transmission Line
We oppose Central Maine Power’s (CMP’s) proposal to build a 145-mile transmission line from the Québec-Maine border to Lewiston because it would harm Maine forests and wildlife, suppress Maine’s renewable energy industry, and could actually increase climate change emissions, all without any clear benefit to Maine or Massachusetts. Please sign the petition to urge decision makers in Maine and Massachusetts to deny CMP’s permits.
It's Time for a Clean Start at EPA!
EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt resigned amidst a slew of anti-environment actions and ethics violations. Now we have a chance for a fresh start at EPA. But the likely nominee, Andrew Wheeler, is a former coal industry lobbyist who will continue to advance a pro-polluter agenda that rejects science, endangers health, and undermines clean energy. Tell Maine's Senators we need an EPA administrator who will undo Pruitt's damage and put the health of Mainers and our environment first.

Speak out now to stop these reckless attacks on our health and environment.
