125 Years of Enjoying, Exploring, and Protecting

On May 28, 1892, John Muir and a few good friends founded what today is the nation's largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization, with 3 million members and supporters. From helping to protect Yosemite National Park more than 100 years ago to defeating attempts to roll back clean air protections earlier this month, the Sierra Club has been at the forefront of protecting the planet now for 125 years, so we're taking a moment to celebrate.

Meet the New Board of Directors

The Sierra Club is a democratically run organization, with an all-volunteer board of 15 directors elected by the members. Each spring, five candidates are elected for a three-year term.

Psst ... Rick Perry Thinks You're Dumb

Do you believe there's no evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election? Then maybe you'll believe this one, too: Preserving dirty coal-fired power plants is essential to our national security. That's the message that former Texas governor Rick Perry, who now heads the Department of Energy and sports IQ-enhancing spectacles, is trying to sell.

Will National Monuments Get Trumped?

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke kicked off a "listening tour" in response to President Trump's recent executive order that all national monuments created since 1996 and exceeding 100,000 acres be given a "fair hearing." In other words, monuments like Grand Staircase-Escalante could now be in jeopardy. Public comments on Trump's executive order can be submitted online until July 11.

Remembrance and Healing

In recognition of Memorial Day and in remembrance of those who have fallen, The North Face has released a new short film, Adventure Not War, featuring Sierra Club Outdoors Director Stacy Bare. For Bare, a decorated veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, the healing power of nature is more than a warm and fuzzy bromide—it's a powerful tool to save lives shattered by the trauma of war, including his own.

Is Your Mayor Backing Clean Energy?

As the Trump administration attempts to slash climate, air, water, and human rights protections, we're increasingly looking to state and local leaders to keep us on the path toward a healthier, stronger future by committing to 100 percent clean, renewable energy for all. That why, in advance of the U.S. Conference of Mayors next month, the Sierra Club's "Ready for 100" campaign has gotten more than 50 mayors—from different political parties and from big cities and small towns—to pledge their support for 100 percent clean energy.

Guess Who Could Make NAFTA Even Worse?

Donald Trump has committed to renegotiate NAFTA, but given his billionaire, climate-denying cabinet, there is a real chance he could actually make it worse. That's really saying something, since the current deal enabled corporate polluters to challenge environmental protections, boosted destructive mining in Mexico, and helped give rise to Canada's toxic tar sands industry.

Don't Abandon Paris

Imagine Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, Rex Tillerson, Scott Pruitt, and Jared Kushner seated around a table in the White House deciding whether the U.S. will abandon its commitments under the Paris climate agreement. According to Politico, key Trump advisers will gather soon to deliberate just that. Under the Obama administration, the United States was a leader in crafting the historic Paris Agreement. Now the Trump administration is debating two terrible options—backing out of the agreement altogether or breaking our promise to significantly reduce carbon pollution.

Want Better Environmental Policies? Elect a Woman.

The 2016 election has galvanized women thinking about a run for public office. Turns out that's a good thing for the environment, too. According to a recent report issued by Rachel's Network, women in Congress are more likely than their male colleagues to vote in favor of environmental policies.

Injustice in the Amazon

In Brazil, both the human rights and land rights of indigenous peoples have come under serious attack. Last month, during a peaceful occupation by the Gamela people of ancestral territory currently controlled by cattle ranchers, 13 indigenous people were brutally attacked by some of those ranchers, leaving many hospitalized.

The rights of Brazil's indigenous peoples must be respected both as a matter of basichuman rights and to ensure that the Amazon Rainforest, a global treasure that sustains life on Earth, is protected from corrupt politicians and big business interests.

Here Comes the Night

On August 21, a total solar eclipse will be visible from the contiguous U.S. for the first time in nearly four decades, as the moon's shadow blocks the sun on a path that crosses 10 states, from Salem, Oregon, to Charleston, South Carolina. It will also be the first coast-to-coast eclipse since 1918.

The Next Big Pipeline Battle

A fight is brewing in the marshes of southwestern Louisiana. The standoff against the Dakota Access Pipeline on the tribal lands of the Standing Rock Sioux has energized activists in Louisiana, who are organizing to keep another major oil pipeline out of the Atchafalaya River basin—a 1.4-million-acre swath of cypress marsh and wetland forest that's a key rest stop for birds moving north and south along the Mississippi Flyway.

Fight Back Against Trump's Cruel Budget

The cuts in Donald Trump's proposed budget are both reckless and cruel. Slashing basic environmental enforcement and cleanup programs would mean hundreds of thousands more asthma attacks, heart attacks, and premature deaths—all in the name of giant giveaways to corporate polluters. Luckily, presidents don't set the final budget. Congress does.
