Clean Transportation For All

Our country has been weaning off fossil fuel-powered electricity generation for more than a decade. Thanks partly to the work of Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal Campaign, more than 270 coal-fired power plants have retired, or are scheduled to retire. More than 400 US Mayors have signed the Climate Mayors compact (thank you Reno’s Hillary Schieve). 

Seven states, Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia, and more than 140 US cities and counties have made the ambitious commitment to 100% clean, renewable energy by 2050 (thank you, Nevada Legislature and Governor Sisolak).

With these improvements to America’s electricity production, the transportation sector is now the leading emitter of greenhouse gases and other pollution. The Sierra Club's Clean Transportation for All and Beyond Coal campaigns are teaming up with the Toiyabe Chapter are teaming up to reduce vehicle emissions, increase public transit, and advocate for urban design that heals our climate, economic, equity, and public health impacts. 

Two Teams are currently working on clean transportation. The Southern NV Group has an Urban Planning Team and the Nevada Rail Coalition is newly formed. Join these teams.
