CPR Initiative takes action under the law to change public policy consistent with the relevant science.

The science is clear: To protect and restore the climate system, we must phase out greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution and remove a substantial portion of legacy emissions that now overheat the planet and acidify the ocean.

Historically, the United State’s GHG sources have contributed the most to fuel the climate crisis. Yet the federal government has imposed no meaningful restriction to-date on the production and use of fossil fuels, the major source of GHG pollution.

With your help, we aim to change that.

UpdateS on Our Campaign to Protect & Restore our climate

Our Petition to EPA to Phase Out GHG Pollution

On June 16, 2022, we filed a rule-making Petition to the Environmental Protection Agency to Phase Out Greenhouse Gas Pollution. On September 14, 2022, EPA rejected that Petition. Now, Petitioners have 60 days to decide if they will challenge EPA’s determination in court.

The Petition provides a firm legal foundation for a deep decarbonization program in the US, and a model to the world. This is critical, and long overdue. But it is also up to you.
