Repower Pennsylvania

From smog-emitting coal-fired power plants to dangerous Marcellus Shale drilling to the toxic threat of nuclear power, the ways that we produce and use energy in Pennsylvania have a severe impact on our environment and health. PennEnvironment is working toward a new energy future that promotes clean, renewable energy and uses efficient technologies to help protect the planet.

Protect Our State Parks and Forests

Our state parks and forests are some of the most extensive in the country, a symbol of our commitment to preserve Pennsylvania’s natural heritage for generations to come. Sadly, these great places face many threats, from drilling to budget cuts.

Protect Our Rivers and Streams

From Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers to the smaller streams in our backyards, Pennsylvania’s waterways are part of what make living here so great. Yet incredibly, more than 15,000 miles of our streams and rivers are so polluted that they’re considered unsafe for fishing and swimming. This is partially because polluters take advantage of inadequate protections for more than half of Pennsylvania’s streams, leaving them vulnerable to more pollution.

Protect Our Parks

From Valley Forge to our awe-inspiring state parks like Ohiopyle and Ricketts Glen, these are our greatest places—for PA and the nation. We’re working to make sure our parks have the resources they need to stave off threats like encroaching overdevelopment, mining, drilling and pollution.

Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. We rely on bees to pollinate everything from almonds to strawberries to the hay used to feed dairy cows. What happens if the bees disappear? It’s simple: No bees, no food. Let's give bees a chance.

But they've got a fight on their hands — thousands of Pennsylvanians are joining our call to help stop gas drilling from contaminating our drinking water, polluting our air, destroying our forests and threatening our health.

Go Solar, Pennsylvania

While more of us are trying to go solar, dirty energy companies keep putting up new roadblocks. We’re urging our leaders to go big on solar and leave dirty energy behind.

Global Warming Solutions

President Obama has a plan that’s been called “the strongest action ever taken by an American president” to tackle global warming. Our new leaders in Congress have vowed to do everything in their power to stop him. Stand with the president for our health and our future, not the polluters.
