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.

It's time to protect our climate and communities from the fossil fuel industry. Take action now to urge the Obama administration to end destructive fossil fuel leasing on our public lands and waters »


ExxonMobil knew about climate change for decades, and covered it up. Now, Big Oil's friends in Congress are trying to derail justice. Tell the Republicans on the House Science Committee: Stop protecting Exxon from investigations over its climate deception »

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.
After years of grassroots activism, President Obama made the right decision and rejected the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline to protect our climate, and communities along the pipeline's path.
Canadian pipeline company Enbridge has increased the capacity of its cross-border Alberta Clipper tar sands pipeline without environmental review or permits from the government. Will the State Department look the other way while Big Oil circumvents the law?
Raise and defend strong fuel-efficiency and pollution standards, increase access to oil-free transportation choices, and promote electric vehicles.
