EESI gives the most balanced, useful, complete and relevant information on topics concerning the environment and energy. I use their fact sheets and white papers all the time for my work within these fields. EESI is the Go To organization.
I am a retired environmental specialist with a federal agency. I am helping a retired expert on social impacts of energy projects write a book on her career. We both worked with impacts of climate change. EESI has long been a reliable source of information, and Climate Change News is a convenient way to keep up to date.
The quality of content produced by EESI is unmatched. Their briefings on Capitol Hill are phenomenal, their factsheets and newsletters are incredibly informative, and the genuine passion of their staff is infectious. Carol Werner is known throughout the industry as one of the most knowledgeable, well-respected, and undeniably-empathetic leaders within the environmental and energy community and her initiative has yielded an organization with the prodigious ability to enact positive change for present and future generations alike. There are many problems in this field that the world will have to face for years to come, but its organizations like EESI that restore my faith in our ability to meet these challenges head-on.
As a news-and-discussion-network admin focused on caring for people and planet, EESI's dedication to research and fairness makes it a primary resource. I usually share more than one post from EESI every week, and these shares are among our most liked and re-shared.
For years I have relied on the EESI weekly Clmate News summary as the most useful on the subject. It helps me keep up with news on research, planning and negotiations as well as legislation and policy initiatives in the field.
EESI occupies a unique position, contributing to Congress's work but also talking to general public and other interests. Working in a somewhat similar organization, I judge their work to be excellent, and sometimes unmatched, which is why I have contributed to supporting them for years.
EESI has earned great respect on Capitol Hill over decades for quality, expert-based briefings, forums and publications developed to enhance understanding and informed response to climate change. Staff and materials provide a foundation for in-depth analysis and strategy development for mitigating and adapting to the effects of climate change by a myriad of audiences.
As executive director of an organization dedicated to advocating for understanding, development and use of advanced biofuels as an alternative to petroleum, EESI's briefings, forums, newsletters, connections to decision-makers for policy, advocacy and industry constantly and consistently proves valuable in my work.
EESI staff retain a healthy skepticism and open mind as they help the world, particularly the US, explore evolving information about causes, effects and solutions or responses to climate change.
This organization must continue serving as a crucial guide to the multi-dimensional world of conscientious policy-making and social and business/industrial related to climate change.
EESI should not only continue its current work, but expansion would benefit its value to all of us. There's so much to do. EESI's valuable considered contribution, the expertise it has developed over decades and its culture of evaluation and promotion of wide-ranging ideas must continue. I urge all to do whatever is in your power to make this happen.
The EESI weekly bulletin "EESI Climate Change News" is the most comprehensive and cleanly presented roundup of important environmental events from the previous week. The formatting and presentation makes it easy to digest, while the topics are all well selected and often cover ground that I haven't seen in other sources. I have recommended this newsletter to other climate enthusiasts.
This organization works tirelessly to promote and support efforts to protect the integrity of our environment.
They do this in a strategic and unique way: by addressing and relating to powers in the education, policy, legislative and industrial sectors.
Further, they address multiple areas of impact and influence: power generation, transportation, agriculture, and finance.
I'm delighted to give them my highest rating.
State Program Director, The NEED Project
I am just beginning my career in working with climate change and how it relates to public health issues. I had the opportunity to view the briefing, "Climate Impacts in the Midwest: Becoming More Resilient."
This briefing was very well organized and included speakers addressing many different aspects of climate change, including city planning and efficiency of energy use. The information given was very practical and easy to understand, even for a beginner as myself.
I was very impressed.
Thank you, Linda! Glad to hear it was so helpful. Please join us again for another briefing.
If you wanted to set the bar for an organization with the highest impact per-capita staff member, EESI is it. With a small but eminently qualified, competent and passionate staff, EESI manages to do the thankless work on educating Congress that may literally define U.S. environmental health for generations to come. My students and I have worked with EESI on a number of energy-related issues over the last five years. The experience has been nothing short excellent, both for me as an advisor, and for the students as participants in civic engagement. EESI is truly one of the GREAT nonprofits.
I've worked with EESI in a number of capacities, as a former Senate staffer and now as an academic in science policy. Aside from providing an amazing breadth of educational opportunities for those most intimately connected with energy and environmental policymaking, EESI has both vision and competence with shockingly small but hardworking staff. In my most recent association with EESI, Carol Werner and Ellen Vaughan teamed up with a small group of my students to conduct original research on how small businesses view energy efficiency. With EESI's mentoring, the students presented the data to senators and staffers, who used the findings as the basis of letters to several federal agencies. It was a project that not only influenced policy, but the lives and careers of several students. How they find the time and energy to educate Congress AND the rest of us, I'll never know. Hands-down, EESI is among the most engaged and dedicated organization among its peers.
