Urge Maine's Senators to Act on Climate!

Recent reports from the University of Maine and the federal government make it clear: Maine has a lot to lose from climate change. Our health, four distinct seasons, lobster industry, and blueberry fields, and more are at risk. That's why we're calling on Maine's U.S. Senators to lead on climate action. Sign this petition urging Maine's Senators Collins and King to lead on a bipartisan climate solutions bill.

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. 

Take Action on Climate Pollution

Oil and gas methane pollution standards are safeguards that help keep our air clean and our families healthier. Now, the EPA is recklessly rolling back these protections, putting lives at risk. Exposure to this harmful air pollution can increase risk of asthma attacks and cancer. Methane is also a significant driver of climate change, responsible for roughly a quarter of the warming we’re experiencing. Tell the EPA to keep these standards in place!
