UT’s Dirty Little Secret

The University of Texas is involved in the one of the largest oil and gas operations in America. Currently, UT doesn't require companies who lease its land to use available technology to cut this methane pollution. That's why we're calling on UT Chancellor McRaven to require these companies to cut their pollution in half in the next five years.

Solar for All

Millions of Americans are ready to go solar so we can power our lives and our communities with clean, renewable, local energy. Yet some utilities and other special interests want to throw new obstacles in the way. Our Solar for All campaign is working to knock those barriers out of the way.

Save the Monarch

As the monarchs begin their 3,000-mile fall migration, we need to make sure this migration isn't their last. That's why we're calling on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to declare the monarch butterfly a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act.

Restore Our Gulf Coast

Our Gulf Coast not only provides our families with places to swim and play in the sun, it is also a home for whooping cranes and sea turtles, shrimp and crabs, snapper and trout. Unfortunately, BP’s Deepwater Horizon disaster was only the latest blow to our coastline, which has suffered from decades of neglect, oil spills, pollution and reckless development.

Protect Texas' Rivers

Polluting industries have put our nation's waters in jeopardy by carving loopholes in the Clean Water Act, leaving 143,000 miles of Texas' streams open to pollution. Join our call to restore the law's protection to all of our waters.

Program

Protect Texas' Rivers

In 2015, our decade-long battle with polluters and their allies in Congress paid off when President Obama restored federal protections to more than half the nation’s streams, which feed drinking water sources for one in three Americans. With your support we can defend the progress we've made. 

Program

Preserving Texas

Wild places across Texas are at being threatened by pollution, development and dramatic funding cuts.  Environment Texas is urging state leaders to preserve our lands from abuse and fight for our state’s natural beauty.

No Bees, No Food

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. 

Program

Keep Our Rivers Flowing

We should be doing everything we can to keep our rivers healthy and flowing. But instead of conserving water, oil companies and developers are lobbying Texas officials to let them drain more water from our rivers, leaving barely enough water for recreation and wildlife like Whooping Cranes. We can't stand by and let this happen, and that’s where you come in.
