It's Time to Move America Beyond Oil

Imagine a world with clean, abundant, affordable energy. One where climate disruption is a fading threat and American soldiers are never again deployed to defend oil fields. One where innovative green industries provide good jobs and supply 100 percent of our energy needs. Imagine a healthier America, with clean air and water, with pristine coasts and protected natural areas. A wealthier, more productive nation, whose leaders answer only to the citizens who elect them. This is America beyond oil.

What We Do

Block the most dangerous oil projects and revoke the oil industry's license to operate above the law and interfere with our transition to a clean energy future.
The US now faces a clear choice: promote the oil industry's interests by green-lighting the most carbon-intensive, destructive oil on the planet, or demonstrate a bold commitment to addressing climate disruption
Raise and defend strong fuel-efficiency and pollution standards, increase access to oil-free transportation choices, and promote electric vehicles.
Accelerate the transition to cleaner cars and trucks by moving America's large fleets to fuel-efficient and electric vehicles.
