Wind Power for New Jersey

New Jersey has the potential to make clean energy history with offshore wind. Two areas off the coast are close to becoming the sites of clean offshore wind, and New Jersy is fast on its way to becoming one of the first states to develop offshore wind. But the future of wind power in New Jersey is at risk if Gov. Chris Christie does not act now.

Save the Delaware From Drilling

Powerful gas industry lobbyists and their allies in Trenton are pushing through policies that would expose the Delaware River, and all our landscapes, to the dangers of gas drilling. But they've got a fight on their hands — thousands of New Jerseyans are joining our call to help stop gas drilling from contaminating our drinking water, polluting our air, destroying beautiful land and threatening our health.

Protect the Jersey Shore

Polluting industries have put our nation's waters in jeopardy by carving loopholes in the Clean Water Act, leaving 4,000 miles of New Jersey's streams open to pollution. Join our call to restore the law's protection to all of our waters.

No Bees, No Food

Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. We rely on bees to pollinate everything from almonds to strawberries to the hay used to feed dairy cows. What happens if the bees disappear? It’s simple: No bees, no food. Let's give bees a chance.

Go Solar, New Jersey

More and more Americans are going solar, meeting more of our energy needs in a way that’s clean and local. Unfortunately, dirty energy companies are putting up new roadblocks at every turn. Our research shows that the cities and states with the most solar power aren't the ones with the most sunshine—they're the ones with the best pro-solar policies. That’s why we’re urging New Jersey's leaders to go big on solar and leave dirty energy behind.

Global Warming Solutions

President Obama has a plan that’s been called “the strongest action ever taken by an American president” to tackle global warming. Our new leaders in Congress have vowed to do everything in their power to stop him. Stand with the president for our health and our future, not the polluters.

Get New Jersey Off Oil

The environmental costs of our oil dependence are out of control — from the accidents and spills, to smog, to climate change. It's time to set this country on a path to getting off oil for good. We can get there by convincing our leaders to make new investments in fuel-efficient cars, new technology, and a first-class system of public transportation.

Don’t let fracking waste New Jersey

Just as the Delaware and New Jersey's other rivers are coming back from decades of pollution, drilling companies are looking to dump toxic fracking waste in New Jersey, putting our waters at risk. A ban on fracking waste could protect our rivers.
