About Us


Investigating problems and crafting solutions.

Finding global warming solutions. Extreme weather events lead to loss of life and billions of dollars in economic damage. What’s more, scientists predict that global warming could increase the frequency of such events in the future. Our report, Global Warming and Extreme Weather, shined a light on what could become “the new normal” if we fail to avert the worst effects of global warming.


Educating the public and making our voices heard.

Stopping the Asian carp. With invasive Asian carp on Lake Michigan’s doorstep last summer, we brought attention to the issue and called on President Obama to radically change the federal response to the crisis. In response to our coalition’s request, President Obama appointed a “carp czar” to oversee and better coordinate federal action to control the invasive species.
