Can Natural Gas Be a Bridge to the Low-Carbon Future?

Featuring:
Fred Krupp, President
Mark Brownstein, Chief Counsel, Energy Program

Natural gas production is at a crossroads. Abundant, newly accessible reserves make natural gas an affordable, low-carbon alternative to coal. Yet current production practices are under fire for compromising our water, air, and land. Environmental Defense Fund is looking for common-sense solutions that protect public health and the environment.

EDF president Fred Krupp — who recently helped shape natural gas policy recommendations as a member of The Department of Energy’s Natural Gas Subcommittee — and EDF chief counsel Mark Brownstein discuss the future of this controversial resource.

From California: A Loud and Clear Message

Featuring:

Wade Crowfoot, Political Director, West Coast

In the largest referendum on climate and clean energy this country has seen, California voters sent a loud and clear message to elected leaders across the country that the public supports action on climate change.

California voters said yes to the clean energy economy this month when they defeated Proposition 23 by a wide margin.  Supporters of the ballot measure, financed primarily by two Texas oil companies,  tried to suspend California’s historic clean energy and air pollution standards by claiming that they would harm the economy — but Californians didn’t buy it.  They know that we can have a healthy environment and a healthy economy at the same time.

Getting Climate through the Senate

Following our victory in June, when the U.S. House of Representatives passed the landmark American Clean Energy and Security Act, we are now fully engaged in the push to reach sixty votes in the Senate.  We’re up against opponents who are tougher, more partisan, and better funded than ever.

With that in mind, Environmental Defense Fund partnered with others to create Clean Energy Works, an unprecedented coalition of more than 60 environmental, civil rights, faith, labor, and veterans organizations working together to pass climate legislation.

Global Warming Legislation: The Opportunity of a Lifetime

Featuring:
Fred Krupp, President, Environmental Defense Fund
Steve Cochran, Director, National Climate Campaign

With your help, we passed climate legislation through the House. Just one more hurdle in the Senate and the bill will be on the President's desk. But it's a steep hurdle.

We are up against formidable forces: industry opponents who already have hundreds of millions of dollars in the bank; an economy that makes everyone anxious and pushes the environment down the agenda; and right-wing media demagogues who are using climate legislation to gin up ugly populist anger.

We must win this fight. We have a window of opportunity, but the window will not stay open much longer. That is why the environmental community has agreed to come together in an unprecedented effort, reorganizing and mobilizing ourselves into one streamlined, turbo-charged campaign with only one goal: to get climate legislation passed.

Listen to our discussion on the challenges and opportunities we face in the coming weeks.
