Air

Every Wisconsinite deserves to breathe clean air. However, nearly 2.1 million Wisconsinites live in areas with air quality considered unhealthy, and more than 100,000 Wisconsin kids are suffering from pediatric asthma. Meanwhile, important air quality protections have been rolled back, and the state doubled down on fossil fuels. We must reduce air pollution for the health and safety of all Wisconsinites.

Wisconsin relies almost entirely on fossil fuels for its electricity.
