It’s time that America commit to clean, safe energy sources that can protect us from climate hazards, as well as ending once and for all our dependency on foreign energy. And communities must be able to trust that their water systems are not poisoning them, and that pollutants are not sickening children and destroying the land.


In MT, SD, ME, OR, and WA renewable energy is  more than 30% of total energy consumption and growing. A number of states have set meaningful targets to improve, yet in 28 states renewable energy is still less than 10% of total energy consumption. [24]
