Union of Concerned Scientists

The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) is the leading science-based non-profit working for a healthy environment and safer world. With sustained support from the Fresh Sound Foundation, UCS led a successful three year campaign in the Midwestern United States to promote climate and clean energy solutions for this vital region—and help build demand for renewable energy alternatives nationwide. Compelling UCS research demonstrated a clear path forward for moving the Midwest away from its dependence on old, polluting coal plants toward a revitalized Midwest economy based on a clean, safe and reliable power supply. Backed by effective coalition work and media outreach, UCS communicated to the public, policy makers and the press that renewable energy technologies like wind and solar offer dependable and affordable means for meeting energy needs—and provide economic, environmental and health benefits to the states and communities that adopt them.
