Alliance Launched To Save Bees

Sixty-five chefs, restaurant owners and other culinary leaders joined us to launch the Bee Friendly Food Alliance. Through the Alliance, chefs and restaurateurs are calling attention to the importance of bees to our food supply, the dramatic die-off of bee populations, and the need to protect our pollinators. LEARN MORE.

Get the Lead Out

Over the past two years, the tragedy of Flint, Michigan has stunned the nation. We watched the drinking water of an entire city become contaminated with lead. And now we know this toxic threat extends well beyond Flint to communities across the country. In fact, test results now show that lead is even contaminating drinking water in schools and pre-schools — flowing from thousands of fountains and faucets where our kids drink water every day.

The 2017 solar eclipse should remind us of solar energy’s progress and near limitless potential

For those of us on the Environment America clean energy team, the solar eclipse is a powerful reminder of the progress solar energy has made, and how much further we need to go. When the last solar eclipse occurred 38 years ago, solar panels were niche products, and electricity generated from the sun made up a negligible piece of our electrical grid.

Over last decade, American solar energy generation increased 43-fold

Ten short years ago, solar panels were mere novelties. Today, they’re a dominant force in America’s energy landscape, and poised for even more growth in the years ahead. Coupled with huge advances in wind energy, battery storage, electric vehicles and energy efficiency, it’s getting clearer than ever that moving to a future powered entirely by clean, renewable energy is as feasible at it is necessary.

Despite Growth, Oregon Lags Behind on Clean Energy Development

A new report released today by Environment Oregon Research & Policy Center finds that Oregon has increased solar and wind energy at a rate slightly less than that of the country as a whole. According to the report, over the last decade solar energy generation increased by 41-fold in Oregon compared to 43-fold nationally and wind energy grew five-fold compared to a seven-fold increase nationally. However, Oregon is among the top of the pack when it came to total electric vehicles sold over the last decade as well as increases in capacity for energy storage.
