ENVIRONMENT

The mining, oil and gas industries have spent untold amounts of money over the past 20 years, successfully pushing to roll back environmental regulations aimed at keeping our air and water clean. As a result, their profits have swelled at the expense of public health and the land of working families. These industries also support climate change denial, undermining every attempt to combat this proven threat to our planet.

CfA aggressively targets the legislatures, organizations, and individuals associated with these efforts.
