March Actions

What's At Stake

The latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report makes it abundantly clear that we need swift and bold action to combat the worst of the climate crisis — but what we’ve been getting is inconsistency.

While the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act will go a long way in building an equitable clean energy economy, we also just saw, the Biden administration greenlight the Willow Project, a massive carbon bomb that will sets us back from reaching our climate goals. Meanwhile, around the country, other urgent environmental challenges demand our attention and action — from clean air standards, to stopping fossil fuel projects, to passing safety standards for toxic chemicals during transportation, and many more. Earthjustice is ready to tackle these challenges and we can’t do it without you.

We’ll need your help to continue this fight — you can do that today by taking all the actions below on this page.

Stop the Willow Project

Earthjustice sued the Biden administration for permitting the Willow Project. Despite more than five million people voicing opposition to the project, the Biden administration opted for habitat and climate destruction in the Western Arctic. Projects like Willow are possible because of a flawed system that puts our public lands up for sale to polluting corporations. Send a letter to President Biden and Secretary Haaland to let them know we aren’t backing down on Willow.

Electrify the Postal Service

The Postal Service announced its intention to buy nearly 10,000 polluting trucks before it finishes its environmental review. Help us push the Postal Service to finish the review and buy electric trucks instead.

Tell Transportation Secretary Buttigieg to write safety rules for trains carrying toxic chemicals

We need common-sense safety rules for trains carrying hazardous materials. A train carrying toxic vinyl chloride, an input in making plastic, derailed in East Palestine, Ohio, contaminating the environment and exposing residents to toxic gases linked to serious health harm. Urge Transportation Secretary Buttigieg to immediately start writing commonsense safety rules for trains carrying hazardous materials.

Tell the Department of Energy to strengthen regulations for gas stoves

Gas stoves have been a hot topic as of late — and for good reason. New research linking childhood asthma to gas stoves has brought a lot of attention to how we power our home appliances. The Department of Energy is proposing new energy efficiency standards to require that gas stoves waste less gas, which reduces harmful emissions. Send a letter to the DOE and urge them to finalize this commonsense standard today!

Your Actions Matter

Your messages make a difference, even if we have leaders who don't want to listen. Here's why.

You level the playing field.

Elected officials pay attention when they see that we are paying attention. Read more.

They may be hearing from industry lobbyists left and right, but hearing the stories of their constituents — that’s your power.

Our legislators serve at the pleasure of the people who gave them their job — you.

Make sure your elected officials know whose community and whose values they represent. When you contact your elected official, you’re putting a face and a name on an issue.

Whether or not you voted for them, they work for you, for the duration of their term.

Make sure your elected officials know whose community and whose values they represent. (Find your local, state, and federal elected officials.)

Your action is with us in court.

If a federal agency finalizes a harmful action, the record of public comments provides a basis for bringing them into court. Read more.

Throughout each of the public comment periods we alert you to, Earthjustice’s attorneys are researching and writing in-depth, technical comments to submit — detailing how the regulation could and should be stronger to protect the environment, our communities, and our planet.

We need you to join us — your specific experiences, knowledge, and voice are crucial to add to the Administrative Record through the comment periods.

Lawsuits we file that challenge weak or harmful federal regulations rely on what was submitted during the comment period. The court can only look at documents that are in the Administrative Record — including the public comments — to decide if the agency did something improper.

Your actions aid our litigation. Taking action and submitting comments during a comment period is substantively important.

It’s the law.

Federal agencies must pause what they’re doing and ask for — and consider — your comment. Read more.

Many of us may have never heard of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), but laws like these require our government to ask the public to weigh in before agencies adopt or change regulations.

Regulations essentially describe how federal agencies will carry out laws — including decisions that could undermine science, or weaken safeguards on public health.

Public comments are collected at various points throughout the federal government’s rulemaking process, including when a regulation is proposed and finalized. (Learn about the rulemaking process.) These comments become part of the official, legal public record — the “Administrative Record.”

When the public responds with a huge outpouring of support for environmental protections, these individual messages collectively undercut politicians' attempts to claim otherwise.

What this means is each of us can take a role in shaping the rules our government creates — and ensuring those rules are fair and effective.
