Clean Water Action harnesses grassroots power by engaging and mobilizing our members and endorsing clean water leaders in elections from the local to national level.
"Andrew Wheeler and the other special interest lobbyists President Trump has placed at EPA don’t want to hear from the public because they know Americans will oppose the Dirty Water Rule"
Recent IPCC and federal studies are clear: we have to act now. Bold decisions are needed to decarbonize power girds and invest in renewable energy sources to . The polar vortex and deep freeze across the Midwest is another reminder that we need strong local and state leadership to fill the vacuum created by a federal pull back on action on climate.
Trenton, NJ -- Clean Water Action NJ State Director Amy Goldsmith released the following statement in response to Governor Murphy's State of the State at 2 pm today.
I’m in Kansas City this week, and it’s not just for BBQ and jazz and the Negro League Baseball Museum (though those are nice perks). I’m here because the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)is holding the only public hearing on its scheme to strip Clean Water Act protections from millions of miles of streams and more than half of the nation’s wetlands.
We are gearing up for a new legislative session and that means a brand new slate of bills that our elected officials will be considering for the next two years. As always, Clean Water Action is committed to being a loud and present voice on Beacon Hill and all over the state fighting for environmental justice, public health, and climate change action.
Why do so many Members of Congress stand by – or, even worse, pile on – whenever the Trump Administration advances another one of its reckless anti-environment giveaways to big polluters?
Maybe it’s because things have been systematically rigged to boost the influence wielded by big polluters and other corporate special interests. When people like you who care about clean water are effectively shut out – or worse, ignored by those elected to represent us – bad things can happen.
