Shaping air quality and energy policy based on sound science
Clean air and the health of the forests and waters of the Northeast are at risk from air pollution and climate change caused by the burning of fossil fuels. Public lands also face significant threats from the inappropriate development and siting of energy generation and transmission projects. Together, these issues make energy efficiency and conservation a core focus area for AMC. To preserve the integrity and health of our diminishing open spaces and public lands, we must reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and large-scale centralized energy generation and distribution.
