In 1892, conservationist John Muir, along with many of his supporters, founded the Sierra Club. The Sierra Club (http://www.sierraclub.org/) continues to tackle our Nation’s – and the world’s – most pressing environmental issues. The Sierra Club’s “Beyond Coal” campaign (http://www.beyondcoal.org/) strives to move the United States away from coal-powered energy and toward renewables, such as solar and wind. So far, the Beyond Coal campaign has stopped over 150 proposed coal-fired power plants!
In this video, Illinois Sierra Club Director Jack Darin discusses climate change and the simple ways that everyone can be part of the solution.
