Stop the Dirty-Energy Bill

Smokestacks

Soon the Senate will vote on the Energy and Natural Resources Act of 2017. Introduced by Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), S. 1460 would advance the Trump administration's dirty-energy agenda. A gift to the fossil fuel industry, the bill would lock us into additional decades of reliance on dirty energy.

We need to stop it in its tracks.

The bill promotes dangerous fracking by fast-tracking approvals for fracked-gas export terminals and gas pipelines. It pours hundreds of millions of dollars into failed "carbon capture and storage" technology for coal. Every major provision in the bill, as summarized in our fact sheet, will worsen climate change and the health of the American people.

At a time when our transition away from fossil fuels should be in high gear, this bill robs our children of a clean energy future.

Using the form on this page, tell your senators you don't want our energy policy dictated by Trump and dirty, climate-wrecking fossil fuel companies.


Please take action by Dec. 29, 2017.
