What do interns with PennEnvironment do? You’ll help us educate and engage more students and citizens on the most critical environmental issues of our time. You’ll help us get our issues into the media, build coalitions, organize events and lobby decision-makers. Ultimately, you’ll help us build the kind of public support it takes to win.
· We’re doing our part to stop global warming: We took a big step forward last summer when President Obama directed his Environmental Protection Agency to develop standards that would cut carbon pollution from power plants, the nation’s largest contributors to global warming pollution. This historic step won’t be enough to fully solve the problem, but it’ll be an important start. But standing in the way, at every step, is one of the most powerful special interests in the world: the fossil fuel industry. That’s where we come in. We’re working to rally millions of American citizens, along with local elected officials and other powerful voices to back the President’s plan.
· We’re making sure we don’t frack our future: Dirty and dangerous fracking could soon put some of America’s most spectacular places at risk. And we know that this especially destructive method of drilling for gas contaminates water and turns forests and rural landscapes into industrial zones – making nearby families sick and contributing significantly to global warming as well. We’re working to offset the outsized influence of the oil and gas industry and keep our remarkable special places protected.
· We’re working to protect our rivers, lakes and streams: To protect our waterways from pollution and destruction we need to crack down on factory farm pollution, sewage and other threats. And we know it won’t be easy because of big opposition from the Farm Bureau, giant agribusiness and others. We’re working to harness grassroots support for clean water and turn it into the political power we need to have a lasting direct impact on our waterways.
