Energy and Climate

Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters is working on energy and climate-related issues with the following campaigns:

Energy use in Wisconsin is currently environmentally and economically unsustainable. Over-reliance on fossil fuels pollutes our air and water, threatens public health, and contributes to climate change. It doesn’t help matters that we waste an awful lot of the energy we generate.

Fortunately, we have the power to change this dangerous course – if we act quickly. Wisconsin is uniquely positioned to harness homegrown, clean energy solutions that will address climate change, provide energy independence, create jobs, and strengthen the economy.

Wisconsin must commit to safely meeting the energy demands of Wisconsin citizens, while taking proactive steps to address the most pressing challenge of our time: climate change. Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters is supporting this goal on three fronts:

1. Supporting the safe, clean, renewable generation of energy.
2. Supporting the safe, efficient transportation of energy.
3. Supporting the conservation of energy.

Each week of the legislative session, Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters takes a position on the conservation issues before the state legislature. To view the energy and climate-related issues being considered by legislators and the pro-conservation position, check out the Conservation Notices of the Week.
