Climate Change

Building Collective Action

Build Bipartisan Leadership on Climate 

We have the power to limit temperature increases if we work together and make the decision to do so. 

It’s crucial, therefore, to make climate change less divisive, and to work on coalescing conservatives and moderates who can build bipartisan policy leadership on climate. 

We are working with Environmental Defense Fund to do just that. The strength of this group can then drive practical solutions for a healthy future and a prosperous economy. 

50 State Climate Initiative

It may feel like climate action in the U.S. is stuck in neutral, but it’s actually moving forward at

the state level. If national goals hold up, a decade from now, the country will be producing 28 percent fewer greenhouses gasses than it did in 2005. Getting there won’t be simple, and since energy policy can vary dramatically from state to state, there is no one-size–fits-all solution. 

U.S. leadership is crucial, and The Nature Conservancy has been working in all 50 states to come up with practical solutions for a prosperous and cleaner future. But even though polls show a majority of U.S. citizens agree this should be a priority, political gridlock in Washington, DC, has made decisive action on decreasing greenhouse gasses and promoting renewable energy a challenge.  

The Conservancy’s history of on-the-ground work in all 50 states, as well as our political relationships, have demonstrated what can be done, and that’s why we have developed a strategy to tackle climate change where we already know who to work with and what the priorities are for each state.
