“We need to be very clear about what it is that we’re fighting for: a 100 percent clean energy economy. Today, the Sierra Club needs to do for clean energy solutions what John Muir did for wilderness exploration and getting people into the outdoors. We need to bring our passion and our muscle and our intellect to bear and accelerate the clean energy revolution; drive oil, gas, and coal companies off our priceless public lands; and secure a carbon-free power sector by 2030.”
~ Michael Brune, Executive Director of the Sierra Club
How can we move North Carolina and the greater Charlotte area Beyond Coal and to a Clean Energy Future? What’s up with Duke Energy and their long term plans for dirty energy, clean energy, and energy efficiency? What can be done to Solarize Charlotte?
Join us on Wednesday, January 22, as we welcome Sierra Club NC Beyond Coal campaign representative Emma Greenbaum for an update of our NC Beyond Coal Campaign, an interactive Q&A, and a planning session to go all in to “Move NC Beyond Coal to Clean Energy”. There will also be updates on the latest conservation and political issues, new outings for the coming month, and exciting ways to be active in the Sierra Club. Don’t miss this this first monthly meeting of 2014!
Our meeting starts off at 6:30 PM with pizza, refreshments and a chance to meet and socialize with other Sierra Club members and friends. The business meeting and program will begin at 7:00 PM. Non-members and potential new members are very welcome!
