Why Hurricane Ida has been so devastating

"There will be more storms, and in a warming world, they’ll get worse."

We need climate action now, not later. Storms like Hurricane Ida will only grow more devastating as the climate crisis worsens.

Rising seas, a warming world, and Covid-19 are shaping the impact of "one of the strongest storms to ever hit Louisiana."

Biden Opens New Federal Office for Climate Change, Health and Equity

The climate crisis is already having drastic consequences for low-income communities and communities of color.

Great to see the Biden-Harris administration taking action to address the public health consequences of climate change 👏

The office will be the first government effort to focus specifically on the public health dangers of global warming.

We’re Hitting the Limits of Hurricane Preparedness

The science is clear: climate change is causing storms like Hurricane Ida to be more destructive.

We must take climate action now to adapt to the climate changes we can no longer avoid, and prevent the widespread, catastrophic impacts we still can.

Cities simply don’t have enough time to run from a storm like Ida.

Removing lead pipes: A once-in-a-generation opportunity

No amount of lead is safe.

Congress must fully fund the $45B needed to remove every lead service line in the country, which is necessary to protect our environment and deliver on environmental justice.

The need to address all sources of lead does not justify a refusal to fund action now on lead in drinking water.

Our national parks provide immeasurable value in fighting climate change, protecting biodiversity, and supporting communities. We must continue to ensure our lands are protected and available to all for generations to come. #NPS105 🎂

LCV Statement on House Passage of the John Lewis Voting Rights Act (H.R. 4)

BREAKING: The House has PASSED the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act (#HR4)!

We are one step closer to protecting our democracy. Now it's time for the Senate to take up and pass both H.R. 4 and the For The People Act, reforming or eliminating the filibuster if necessary.

Washington, D.C. — In response to House passage of H.R. 4, the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, an updated version of the historically bipartisan Voting Rights Act that addresses current-day voter suppression tactics, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Voting ...

The House has passed the budget resolution, a crucial step forward for people and the planet!

Today’s victory belongs to those who have raised their voices for once-in-a-generation action to tackle the climate crisis and inequity. It’s time for the House and Senate to deliver for the people and enact President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda into law. https://bit.ly/38dPDlP

The Darker Side of Tree-Planting Pledges

"It’s not just about planting a million trees. It’s about planting and taking care of a million, and in the right places."

Planting trees can be a tool in the fight against climate change but only if they are done with care and not seen as a cure-all. 🌲

Campaigns to plant millions of trees have become popular urban responses to climate change. But many have fallen far short of their goals.

State lawmakers across the country are trying to silence our voices with a coordinated attack on our freedom to vote.

President Biden's Build Back Better plan is our once-in-a-generation opportunity to secure middle class tax cuts, create clean energy jobs, and lower costs for working families. But it’s going to come down to a few votes.

Congress MUST hear from constituents, including you. CALL your member of Congress today and tell them to support the President's budget 👇

Please help me make sure Congress invests in climate action. Take five minutes to call your member of Congress and ask them to vote YES on the budget resolution.

Why Heat Waves Amplified by Climate Change Are a Big Problem for Baby Birds

The extreme heatwave in the Pacific Northwest this summer was devastating for birds, especially baby birds.

A great reminder that the climate crisis is an existential threat to ALL life on Earth. 👇

The extreme heat wave earlier this summer was a disaster for nestlings in the Pacific Northwest. With climate change, these intense hot spells will become more frequent, ultimately threatening bird populations.

Stung by climate change: drought-weakened bee colonies shrink U.S. honey crop, threaten almonds

Drought in North Dakota is leading to weakened bee colonies, which is putting cash crops like almonds, plums, and apples at risk in states like California.

Even when you can't see or feel climate change, it's impacting all of our lives in some way.

There was barely a buzz in the air as John Miller pried the lid off of a crate, one of several "bee boxes" stacked in eight neat piles beside a cattle grazing pasture outside Gackle, North Dakota.

Prioritizing Environmental Justice in the Infrastructure & Recovery Package: A Q&A with Congressional Environmental Justice Leaders

Infrastructure is the backbone of our society, and Congress is about to make the largest investment in it we’ve seen in decades.

That’s why we held a Q&A with Congressional environmental justice leaders on how we can use this moment to invest in infrastructure that:

🚫 Reduces pollution & inequities
🌎 Mitigates & adapts to climate change
🏘️ Repairs the harms of past & present policies

Learn more ⤵️

Infrastructure is quite literally the backbone of our society — it determines how we get around, the water we drink, what resources we have access to, our quality of life, and if we can make it through when disaster strikes. It is more than just roads and bridges and public transit, though those a...

Opinion: The climate refugees are coming. Countries and international law aren’t ready for them

"It is almost certain that, in the coming few decades, the world will see a mass displacement of human beings almost unmatched in modern history."

In order to prevent this future, we need climate action now. But if it comes to pass, America must welcome climate refugees fleeing the most vulnerable places.

For generations, our approach to asylum has centred on war and political persecution, not natural disaster. Unless we change that soon, mass migrations to the developed world will end in violence

Biden picks Native American conservationist to run the National Park Service

Charles F. “Chuck” Sams III's (Cayuse & Walla Walla) confirmation to lead National Park Service would be a historic moment for America and Native Americans.

His leadership would ensure we marshall all available resources to address climate change and that our lands are protected and available to all for generations to come 👏

Charles Sams has a long track record in nonprofits and conservation organizations.

BREAKING: The Biden EPA is BANNING the use of the harmful pesticide chlorpyrifos on food.

Getting this dangerous chemical out of our food is a long overdue victory for the health of children, families, and farmworkers across the country. 👏👏

The agency will reverse a Trump-era decision to keep chlorpyrifos, one of the most common pesticides, in use.

General information

Over the last five decades, LCV and our state affiliates,together the Conservation Voter Movement, have fought to protect our Earth and everyone who inhabits it. To do so by working to solve our nation’s biggest environmental challenges,we need political solutions, at all levels of government. LCV brings people together to use their power to influence policy, hold leaders accountable, and elect officials who share our values. We are also committed to building a larger, more active, and more racially diverse movement because, for too long, communities of color have been excluded from environmental politics, and we are committed to fighting for inclusive, just solutions to our environmental challenges. In the end, LCV is working to build a vibrant participatory democracy that protects clean air, clean water, public lands, and a safe climate for everyone. This is what we fight for in Congress. This is what we fight for at the ballot box. This is what we fight for in cities and states across the country. Our Earth is worth fighting for.

Who are we voting for for Governor of California in the recall vote!
The climate crisis can seem overwhelming, and the news is not good. But here's one antidote to climate depression. Thanks to all of you for what you do! Hobie
No more delays on climate action. We need budget reconciliation to happen in the Senate. LCV needs our help to get the message across.
Please stop my monthly contribution

Someone in my area put in a fair amount of work to comment on the Climate Action Now sign that I have in my yard. We are not really sure what their meaning is but for now I have left it as it is.
