Environment Georgia Research & Policy Center
Clean water to drink and clean air to breathe; healthy beaches, lakes and rivers that are safe for swimming and fishing; preserved open spaces; clean sources of energy that don’t pollute and never run out—all this should be the heritage we leave to future generations. Our staff research the issues, educate the public, and win tangible results.
Investigating problems and crafting solutions
Extreme Weather. Extreme weather events lead to loss of life and billions of dollars in economic damage. What’s more, scientists predict that global warming could increase the frequency of such events in the future. Our new report, "Global Warming and Extreme Weather" shined a light on what could become "the new normal," if we fail to avert the worst effects of global warming.
Educating the public and making our voices heard.
Saving Georgia's shores from drilling. Last year, President Obama reversed his position on offshore drilling and pledged to keep Georgia's coast rig-free until at least 2017. The public outcry in the aftermath of the Gulf spill hastened the president's reversal, and some of the loudest voices were from Environment Georgia members who wrote emails and joined "Hands Across the Sand" to protest offshore drilling.
