Blocked devastating budget cuts at the Environmental Protection Agency

Environmental Action Impact: EPA Budget Cuts

Your calls, petition signatures, donations, and letters to newspapers during 2017 have — at least so far — helped stop President Trump’s proposed $2 billion in cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency’s budget. In fact, Senator Debbie Stabenow specifically credited public action with saving federal funds for the EPA’s Great Lakes Restoration program, one of dozens of essential programs targeted by the president.

Streaming video services like Netflix can use a lot of energy. That’s why this year we joined our allies at Greenpeace in calling on the streaming giant to ensure its power comes from clean, renewable energy, rather than dirty fossil fuels. This summer the company announced further steps to reduce its use of fossil fuels.
