National Resources Defense Council (NRDC)
The National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) works to safeguard the earth—its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends.They believe that the world’s children should inherit a planet that will sustain them as it has sustained us.
NRDC experts use data and science to unearth the root causes of the problems that confront us. They use that information to blueprint transformative solutions, and mobilize the support of more than two million members and online activists to advocate for laws and policies that will protect our environment far into the future.
One of the many priorities the NRDC has is a focus on clean air. Protecting our health, our communities, and our planet from dangerous air pollution is the no. 1 goal of NRDC’s Climate & Clean Air program. They are working to curb the carbon pollution that is driving dangerous climate change by shifting our electricity generation, industry, and transportation to clean energy. And they are working to clear the air of soot, smog, and toxic pollutants that take thousands of Americans’ lives each year.
They fight to enforce the Clean Air Act, the landmark law adopted in 1970 to protect our health and our environment from dangerous air pollution. Since that time, NRDC has won huge battles to cut lung-destroying smog in our cities; clean up our power plants, cars, and factories; stop acid rain; and save the ozone layer.

"Climate change is a real and scary thing that affects every living being in the world. More and more, storms, floods, heat waves, and drought are becoming all too frequent and extreme. Together with the NRDC, we can help make a significant impact on future climate change and in the quality of our air and water."
