Regional Climate Action

To slow global warming, we need to ultimately eliminate carbon pollution from power plants. But we know that our leaders in Washington, D.C., are moving in the wrong direction. That’s why the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative might be the most important climate program you’ve never heard of.

Protect the North Woods. Stop the Transmission Line.

Central Maine Power is proposing to transport energy from a Canadian energy company, Hydro-Quebec, in a 145-mile long transmission line which would cut through the ecologically valuable wilderness in Maine.

Thanks in part to our national network's advocacy and action, the nation’s first offshore wind farm is now in operation, three miles off the Rhode Island coast. But it’s just the beginning.

Developing the wind areas already approved off the Atlantic Coast could power 6 million homes. But, unlocking more of offshore wind power’s potential depends in large part on America’s Atlantic Seaboard states and their governors.

Global Warming Solutions

A greener, healthier world requires each of us to do all we can to eliminate the pollution and practices that are warming the planet and changing our climate. Environment Maine takes concrete steps to move us closer to the world we want to live in, from promoting the fossil fuel divestment movement to accelerating the transition to cars that don’t pollute.

Get the Lead Out

Medical experts estimate that more than 24 million American kids will lose IQ points due to lead exposure. Our research finds many of these kids will be exposed to lead in their schools’ drinking water. That’s why we’re working to Get the Lead Out.
