By facilitating the transportation of dirty tar sands fuels, Keystone would add 27.4 million metric tons of global warming pollution to our atmosphere per year. President Trump's executive order advancing the Keystone XL pipeline is definitely a step in the wrong direction. READ MORE.
Raleigh, NC- Today, advocates and activists in favor of clean beaches voiced their opposition to offshore drilling at the Atlantic Drilling Forum hosted by the Consumer Energy Alliance, a pro-drilling group.

RALEIGH – More than 16,000 North Carolina citizens have spoken out against Gov. Pat McCrory’s response to the federal Clean Power Plan, the first-ever plan to reduce carbon pollution from power plants, before the public comment period closes today.
Due to overwhelming public support, the Clean Water Rule has now withstood every attack that polluters could muster in Congress - the Barrasso bill, the CRA measure, and now an attempted budget rider. Polluters and their allies have played all their dirty water cards in Congress and lost.
Raleigh, NC – As North Carolina moves forward with its first ever wind farm, a new report from Environment North Carolina Research & Policy Center shows that a moderate expansion of wind power over the next few years could eliminate the pollution equal to that produced by 44,000 cars in the state.
The report comes as construction continues on the Amazon Wind project, the first North Carolina wind farm. The farm, being built in Pasquotank and Perquimans counties, will generate power for retail giant Amazon.
Wind power continues to grow as a source of clean energy across America. The United States generated 26 times more electricity from wind power in 2014 than it did in 2001. American wind power has already significantly reduced global warming pollution.
