What's At Stake
The first few months of 2023 have seen several environmental challenges on the horizon.
For example, the Biden administration moved one step closer to permitting the disastrous Willow Project. There was a chemical disaster in East Palestine, Ohio after a train carrying toxic chemical cargo derailed. There’s new movement on the fight to strengthen clean air standards like NAAQS and MATS. Finally, the harmful Cook Inlet lease sale from the Inflation Reduction Act went through and we are advocating that the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management reject the bid they received for the Cook Inlet to protect this sensitive ecosystem. But Earthjustice is ready to tackle these challenges head on – and we can’t do it without you.
To combat the dangerous Willow Project, Earthjustice has launched a public pressure campaign to tell the Biden administration to deny the drilling permits. After a train carrying hazardous chemicals derailed in Ohio, Earthjustice renewed our calls for the Department of Transportation to better regulate railway and enact stronger safety measures to prevent more disasters like this in the future. Less than a week later, the agency responded and announced their plans to do just that. With your help and advocacy, Earthjustice is pushing the EPA to strengthen clean air standards and is defending Alaska’s Cook Inlet from fossil fuel development.
Supporters like you who continue to take action, hold leaders accountable, prevent harmful environmental projects from affecting communities, advocate for strengthened regulations and standards to keep our communities safe are critical for the environmental movement. Thank you for your advocacy.
We’ll need your help to continue this fight – you can do that today by taking action on this page.
