- We fought to increase the use of home-grown renewable energy in Michigan, pushing state policymakers to replace dirty coal plants, like Lansing's Eckert power plant, with clean wind and solar power generation.
- We worked to make sure that coal ash dumps in our state are managed responsibly, pushing for closure and cleanup of these sites—including one on the Michigan State University campus—before they contaminate our environment any further.
- We helped get the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to issue strong rules to reduce carbon emissions from new and existing power plants. And we won our fight against toxic water pollution from power plants, slashing the discharge of pollutants like mercury, arsenic and lead into our waters.
- We collected 130,000 letters, postcards and emails to the EPA, winning adoption of a rule that will restore Clean Water Act protection to small streams that provide drinking water for 1 in 3 Americans! We enlisted support from dozens of municipalities, along with hundreds of local and state elected officials, and over 400 nonprofit organizations and businesses—and generated dozens of editorials, guest opinion columns and letters to the editor supporting clean water.
