Jon Goldin-Dubois“You’ve seen wind farms that generate clean energy – we help make those happen. You’ve enjoyed the West’s rivers, like the Colorado and the Green – we help keep those flowing. You’ve admired iconic landscapes, like the Grand Canyon and Utah’s Great Salt Lake – we safeguard these places. We work throughout the Interior West to protect the region for future generations.”
– Jon Goldin-Dubois, President of Western Resource Advocates
Western rivers and lakes will have abundant clean water to support habitat for fish and wildlife, communities and agriculture, and world-class recreational opportunities. The Colorado River will flow to the sea.
Our homes, buildings and transportation systems will be powered by clean energy. The West will prosper in a zero-carbon economy.
Half of western landscapes and habitat will be protected and connected to support thriving wildlife populations and unparalleled opportunities to enjoy the West’s natural beauty.
The West will have clean air and clean water to support healthy communities and vital habitat.
TACKLING THE LARGEST SOURCE OF CARBON POLLUTION IN THE WEST: THE POWER SECTOR
The climate crisis is taking its toll on our natural environment, economy, and the health and well-being of our communities. Who could imagine the West without the abundant wildlife, clear-flowing rivers and streams, and snow-capped peaks that make our region the best place in the world to live and work. We have precious little time to prevent the worst impacts of climate change, but we can do it, and Western Resource Advocates is leading the way by addressing the largest source of carbon pollution in the West — the power sector. Decreasing reliance on carbon-based fuels in the power sector will create an important foundation for tackling other sectors, helping make possible a future where transportation, industry, and buildings are powered by clean, carbon-free energy.
