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.

Program

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

If Texas has more solar potential than any other state in the country, why are we still getting so much of our energy from dirty sources, like oil and coal, which pollute our air and water and harm our health? We have a plan change that and see 1 million solar roofs in Texas by 2030. 

Program

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.

Program

Clean Air, Healthy Families

New EPA clean air standards will cut mercury pollution by 90% and save 46,000 lives each year. The coal industry and their friends in Congress are trying to roll back these standards, but we’re urging Congress to let EPA do its job and move forward with its commonsense plan to protect public health.
