Sierra Club Outdoors reaches across economic lines, cultures, and communities, to engage everyone -- including military and youth -- to explore and enjoy the natural world.
As the United States Conference of Mayors draws in city leaders from across America, we are proud to announce the launch of the #ReadyFor100 percent clean energy campaign! Cleaner, cheaper, healthier energy is here and it’s time for leaders across the U.S. to commit to 100% clean and renewable energy for all. Join us and sign the petition to tell your mayor you're #ReadyFor100 in your city!
READY FOR 100 is a movement of people working to inspire our leaders to embrace a vision of healthier communities powered by 100% clean energy. We are asking mayors, CEOs, pastors, principals, civic and community leaders, parents and students to commit to solutions that help us achieve 100% clean, renewable energy across the United States by the year 2050.
Sierra Club supporters have kicked @$# since 1892 and we're looking forward to another incredible year! Check out our 2015 highlights with an amazing soundtrack by Sleater-Kinney. Only together do we make the rules.
2015 was an incredible year for the Sierra Club's 2.4 million grassroots supporters -- President Obama rejected Keystone XL, Shell abandoned drilling in the Arctic, the Beyond Coal Campaign celebrated its 200th coal plant retirement announcement and the Paris climate agreement marked a turning point for the world and the climate movement.
But, for us to succeed in making a 100% clean energy economy a reality, the Clean Power Plan must live up to its potential as a climate game changer. With continued attacks from climate deniers and big polluters, the EPA needs to hear from you now to make this happen.
Tell the EPA you support a strong and just Clean Power Plan that moves us closer to meeting our climate commitments!

Chasing the Distance is a personal look into the lives of ultra-running athletes and husband and wife team Rob Krar and Christina Bauer. They share their deep connection to each other and the area of the proposed Greater Grand Canyon Heritage National Monument in Arizona. Though intimately connected with the well-being of Grand Canyon National Park and the health of local communities and economies, this area remains at risk from threats such as toxic uranium mining.
To all our members and supporters -- thank you for an amazing 2015!
Paris will host the 21st Session of the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC): a long and important name for a conference with even more important results. The COP21 will be addressing the increasingly critical issue of climate disruption and what exactly we, as a global community, will do about it. Throughout the rest of 2015, the Sierra Club will be there every step of the way to show President Obama that we want him and the U.S. delegation to lead the way on climate and #ActInParis.
A decade after Hurricane Katrina made landfall, the Gulf Coast still fights for the most basic of rights: to return home, breathe clean air, and drink clean water. Though the community has done much to rebuild green and start to rebuild the Bayou, there is still much to be done. Watch the video, then join the movement to REBUILD, RESIST, and RENEW.
On July 15, we reached another big milestone in our push to move beyond coal - the 200th coal plant to announce retirement in the United States since 2010. This is the latest major crossroads in what Politico recently called "the most extensive, expensive and effective campaign in the [Sierra] Club's 123-year history, and maybe the history of the environmental movement." At the heart of this momentum is the unyielding drive and commitment of thousands of grassroots leaders and activists, some of whom are featured in a new video we're releasing today to mark the occasion. Read the full article by Mary Anne Hitt, director of the Sierra Club Beyond Coal Campaign.
We couldn't come close to sharing all our actions and successes this year in 75 seconds, but watch our year-end wrap-up video for some highlights -- from the historic People's Climate March to promoting clean energy to standing up against dirty fuels and fracking to protecting wild places and the species that inhabit them. To the Sierra Club's 2.4 million members and supporters, we thank you.
Hydraulic fracturing -- or "fracking" -- is a natural gas collection method that poses a danger to our environment and our public health. Take action to keep dirty fuels in the ground at http://www.sc.org/beyondfracking.
