Save Texas Rivers

We should be doing everything we can to keep our rivers healthy and flowing. But instead of conserving water, oil companies and developers are lobbying Texas officials to let them drain more water from our rivers, leaving barely enough water for recreation and wildlife like Whooping Cranes. We can't stand by and let this happen, and that’s where you come in.                     

Program

Restore Our Gulf Coast

Our Gulf Coast not only provides our families with places to swim and play in the sun, it is also a home for whooping cranes and sea turtles, shrimp and crabs, snapper and trout. Unfortunately, BP’s Deepwater Horizon disaster was only the latest blow to our coastline, which has suffered from decades of neglect, oil spills, pollution and reckless development.

Preserving Texas

Wild places across Texas are at being threatened by pollution, development and dramatic funding cuts.  Environment Texas is urging state leaders to preserve our lands from abuse and fight for our state’s natural beauty. 

Program

Go Solar, Texas

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 Texas's leaders to go big on solar and leave dirty energy behind.

Global Warming Solutions

On June 2, 2014, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed a Clean Power Plan that sets targets for states to reduce carbon from their power plants by investing in renewable energy and energy efficiency, cleaning up existing power plants, and switching to cleaner fuels. We’ve launched a campaign to reach more than 1 million Americans about the local impacts of global warming and the impact President Obama’s Clean Power Plan will have on our children’s future.
