Catalyzing resilient solutions, scaled to meet the climate challenge.
We are a non-traditional and fact-based organization.
Staying focused on change that can truly make a difference.
Moving forward with zero-carbon hydrogen and ammonia fuels
In April 2018, member countries of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) announced an “initial strategy” for cutting the shipping sector’s greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2050. If the worst consequences of climate change are to be avoided, major industries like international shipping will need to do more than cut their emissions by 50%—but theBioenergy
CATF, other groups push EPA to protect natural landscapes from biofuel crop expansion
Clean Air Task Force and Earthjustice filed a petition on behalf of 11 environmental organizations demanding that the Environmental Protection Agency protect prairies and other natural habitats from being plowed under for the purpose of growing more biofuel crops.Super Pollutants
The ExxonMobil statement on proposed methane standards: a closer look
“Exxon urges EPA to maintain methane rules,” proclaimed the Houston Chronicle on December 20. Reuters was even more celebratory: “Exxon Mobil opposes weakening Obama-era emission rules: letter to EPA.” From these headlines and other news articles on ExxonMobil’s comments filed in response to the Administration’s proposal to dramatically weaken the Obama-era new source standards for […]News & Media
Trump to America’s Children: It’s Coal for you this year!
U.S. EPA today announced yet another regulatory rollback holiday gift to the coal industry. While the country is distracted by recycling gift boxes and post-holiday sales, EPA quietly proposed to find that it is not “appropriate” to regulate the toxic air emissions from the nation’s coal- and oil-fired power plants. The proposal reverses a decades-old […]News & Media
Passage of the Nuclear Energy Innovation and Modernization Act
WASHINGTON – Clean Air Task Force welcomes the passage into law of the Nuclear Energy Innovation and Modernization Act (NEIMA). To fully decarbonize the global economy, it is essential that we will need to preserve both existing nuclear plants and build advanced nuclear reactors. NEIMA’s objectives support both of these. The legislation was co-sponsored by […]
We push the change in technologies and policies needed to get to a zero-emissions, high-energy planet at an affordable cost. Imagine a world where the energy needs of all humans are met efficiently without damaging the atmosphere.
How We're Different
Facilitating the commercialization of emerging and proven climate change mitigation technologies.
Working practically and objectively to catalyze and spark realistic change that leads to major impact through legal and legislative advocacy.
Driving support for the most effective policy and technology strategies.
Examining All Options with an Open Mind
Advanced Energy Systems
Provide the world with a vision of practical, resilient pathways to a zero carbon energy system.
Advanced Nuclear Energy
Create a normal global research and development, commercial, regulatory, and social ecosystem in which nuclear technology can flourish in order to decarbonize global energy production.
Redirect the production and use of bioenergy so that it contributes to—rather than undermines—decarbonization and climate stability.
Decarbonized Fossil Energy
Accelerate the adoption of carbon capture technologies to prevent CO2 emissions from power generation and industrial sources.
Ensure the adoption of U.S. emission standards on U.S. fossil power plants to zero out U.S. power sector carbon emissions by 2050.
Catalyze deep, global reductions in methane and black carbon emissions to help stave off the risk of irreversible changes to our climate.
