The world's oldest envrionmental organization
The purpose of the Sierra Club is
to protect communities, wild places, and the planet itself

The Sierra Club has made a Climate Recovery Agenda which will cut carbon emissions 80 percent by 2050, lower our dependence on foreign oil, make a clean-energy economy and protect our country from the results of global warming.
The club is helping create a clean energy economy by repowering America with green, renewable energy such as wind solar and other safe clean sources of power.
They will also create high-performance homes and buildings that are smarter and get rid of global warming emissions, lower utility bills, and generate renewable energy.
