Reforming Oil & Gas Operations

We are working to ensure oil and gas development in the western U.S. does not undermine our transition to renewable energy, to protect wildlands and communities threatened with oil and gas leasing and drilling, and to reduce methane pollution and waste.

Fighting Coal

Coal has powered the U.S. for decades, but it’s time to move beyond coal to a new generation of clean, renewable, carbon-free energy sources and technologies.

Fighting Coal Cases

Safeguarding Climate & Reforming Energy

Oil and gas development in the western U.S. is incompatible with the action we need to take to confront the climate crisis. We must sharply reduce greenhouse gas pollution and transition to a 100% clean, carbon-free energy economy. At the same time, we must protect the landscapes that provide us with clean water, clean air, lands to farm, and places to hunt, fish, and play.

We are working to end oil and gas leasing and drilling on our public lands to safeguard our climate and to protect the natural and cultural heritage of our region, such as in New Mexico’s Greater Chaco landscape. We are also leading the campaign for robust federal rules to limit methane pollution unnecessarily leaked and flared from oil and gas drilling on public lands.
