On this 40th anniversary of Earth Day, I’m going to cut right to the chase. Earlier in the month, a generous donor issued CLF a challenge: If we reach 400 donations by Midnight on Earth Day, he will donate $40,000 to our most vital work—like climate change and clean energy.
Here’s the clincher: We are exactly 38 donations short of our goal, and only a few hours remain until our deadline.
That is why we need you to act now—your donation of just $10, or whatever you can afford, will bring us one huge step closer to our goal. How else can you turn a gift as small as $10 into $40,000 for New England’s environment?
Here’s what we’ll do with your gift:
- Hold Dominion Energy responsible for cleaning up Salem Harbor Station and paying millions of dollars in penalties retroactively.
- Advocate for renewable energy initiatives, like the 130-turbine Cape Wind project.
- Continue to put pressure New England’s on dirtiest coal plants—and hold polluters accountable for violations of the federal Clean Air Act and state environmental standards
- Push for policies that support greater energy efficiency through a process known as decoupling, lowering energy demands and CO2 emissions in New England.
- Reduce our region’s carbon footprint. CLF will advocate for the adoption and implementation of a Northeast and Mid-Atlantic “Low Carbon Fuel Standard”— potentially cutting our region’s carbon dioxide emissions by a staggering 29 million metric tons annually.
- Defend the precedent-setting California Low Carbon Fuel Standard from attacks in federal litigation.
- Ensure that New England continues to lead the country. Fighting alongside congressional staff, senators and representatives to prevent federal legislation that undermines the ability of New England states to lead in clean car standards.
But we can’t accomplish any of this without you.
Before you go… CLF is working every day to create real, systemic change for New England’s environment. And we can’t solve these big problems without people like you. Will you be a part of this movement by considering a contribution today? If everyone reading our blog gave just $10, we’d have enough money to fund our legal teams for the next year.
