All I Want for Christmas is No ACP
Tell Governor Cooper – NO ACP for the Holidays!
Soon, our North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality will be making its final decision on a major permit for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.
We need your help to send a message to the Governor and officials in Raleigh that North Carolina doesn’t want or need this pipeline.
Help us flood the Governor’s office with Holiday-themed NO ACP postcards. Pick your favorite design at the link here and send a postcard to the Governor. You can download and print at home, or we can send one on your behalf!

Water and Energy

In North Carolina, more than 80% of surface water withdrawals are used by power generation facilities. Our rivers and lakes face massive withdrawals, toxic pollution and hot discharges from coal-fired and nuclear power plants. Meanwhile, low-income and minority communities are often the MOST impacted by energy production and extraction facilities. Learn more about the efforts of CWFNC and others to keep these polluters in check, work with vulnerable communities, seek for solutions to energy demand (like energy efficiency!) and conserve water resources for other uses.
