Here’s the problem: every time a new fracked-gas pipeline or liquefied natural gas facility or dirty compressor station is proposed, progressive groups and vulnerable landowners are routinely caught off guard. Our side is then constantly playing defense from day one to stop these dangerous projects. Enough is enough. The science is clear. There can be no new fossil fuel development. No more pipelines. No more exploration of fossil fuels. We need a just transition to the clean energy economy now.
Put Virginia on the Road to 100% Renewables!
We need large-scale state policy solutions NOW to move away from the fossil fuel pollution at the root of the problem in a way that provides a just transition for everyone in Virginia. We support a policy that would require 50% of electricity to come from renewable sources by 2030 and to determine the best way to get to 100% shortly after.

We passed the Clean Energy DC Act for 100% clean electricity and more. Now it must be implemented in a strong and fair way! DC’s transition to clean energy must protect the health and welfare of our residents — especially low-income communities. Less pollution gives us cleaner air; investment in energy efficiency saves money; and promoting renewables brings clean, domestic energy to residents.
The Atlantic Coast & Mountain Valley Pipelines for fracked gas will put our land, water and climate at risk.
We’ve asked for protection from local officials. We’ve petitioned, called, lobbied, rallied, and marched. But our voices have not yet been heard.
We are at a crossroads in Virginia. According to the world’s top scientists, we have just 12 years to completely remake our energy system and move off fossil fuels order to avert climate catastrophe.Let’s urge our legislators to make sure that everyone in Virginia is protected in a just transition to a livable climate future.
On the last day of the 2019 legislative session, the Maryland General Assembly PASSED the Clean Energy Jobs Act with veto-proof majorities in both houses! This historic bill will bring Maryland to 50% renewable electricity by 2030 and put us on the path to 100% clean power by 2040.
Tell Attorney General to Issue a “Stop-Work” Order on the Mountain Valley Pipeline!
Attorney General Mark Herring has sued the developers of the Mountain Valley Pipeline, alleging more than 300 violations of Virginia environmental standards. But this is not enough. Herring must issue a stop-work order for this pipeline.
