Climate Change and Energy Dependence

barren tree representing drought and desertification as a result of climate changeClimate change is an urgent threat that demands decisive government action. PEER works to hold government accountable to ambitious climate goals based on sound science and policy and supports holistic approaches to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and building resiliency in our communities.

Our work supports meaningful climate actions at the federal, state and local level, including efforts to rapidly increase clean energy production, improve energy conservation, preserve nature and biodiversity, decrease our use of toxic chemicals and pesticides, and improve our agricultural practices.

We are also a watchdog for hidden dangers and scams that result from any new climate program. Our efforts to address climate change must occur in the context of transparency, scientific integrity, and the support of meaningful dissent, and there must be systems in place to evaluate the effectiveness of climate and energy programs.
