The Sierra Club: 2 Global Warming Actions

June 5th, 2007 9:50 pm by Kelly Garbato

Rather than posting a Table of Contents for each week’s Sierra Club Currents, methinks I’ll just start excerpting choice action alerts, since that’s all I care about anywho. Plus, some of their recent “news items” have been decidedly speciesist.

So, here they are – two global warming-related alerts from the latest ed. of Club Currents. If you’d like to read this week’s issue, go here.

Take Action: Senate — Call for a Stronger Energy Bill!

In two weeks, the Senate will vote on broad global warming and energy legislation. This is an opportunity to move the country in a new direction — one that curbs global warming, cuts our dependence on oil, and creates a new clean energy economy.

Unfortunately, the proposed legislation fails the test. We need urgent and meaningful action including a national Renewable Energy Standard, guaranteed fuel economy improvements, and strong energy efficiency programs — not business as usual.

Use our Action Center to call your Senators and tell them that America needs a stronger energy policy!

Take Action: House — Make Sure Bills Fight Global Warming!

The House of Representatives will also have the opportunity later this summer to vote on important energy legislation that helps curb global warming and America’s dependence on dirty fossil fuels.

Energy legislation passed by the House must reduce greenhouse gas emissions from electric utilities and vehicles: These steps are crucial to reducing greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent by 2050 — or two percent a year — the level scientists say is necessary to avoid the worst effects of global warming.

Please take the time to ask your Representative to support crucial provisions to boost renewable energy production and raise fuel economy standards–that America needs clean energy that will create jobs, save consumers money, and curb global warming.
