In between a developed campground and the backcountry lies the “slackcountry”—primitive campsites that lie a mile or two beyond trailhead parking lots. Read more here: sierraclub.org/sierra/welcome…
Investments of this size & scope weren’t imaginable a few years ago & are only possible now because the growing strength of our movement changed the political landscape. Together, we'll continue building an intersectional movement toward the healthy & safe future we all deserve.
We know this is far from the end of our call for climate action, but merely a significant beginning of real progress toward the healthy and safe future each of us deserves.
Of course, we cannot celebrate this moment with unabated joy. It is unacceptable that oil and gas leasing provisions in the bill will be tied to clean energy development, especially threatening frontline communities.
This weekend we hope you can rest, recharge, & celebrate the people-powered movement that made passing the Inflation Reduction Act possible. This bill makes significant investments in: 🌍climate ⚖️environmental justice ☀️clean energy 👩🏾‍🏭jobs Yet it's far from perfect (threaDyjN
Celebrating the #IRA House passage today - a major people-powered step for climate, jobs, and justice! twitter.com/mahyarsorour/s…
We will keep fighting on behalf of all communities across the country struggling with rising prices, climate-fueled disasters, and systemic injustice. The IRA is not the end of our call for climate action, but a beginning of real progress toward a healthy and safe future for all.
The Sierra Club will continue to support Black, Indigenous, low-income, and communities of color that are disproportionately affected by oil & gas development. We will demand equitable implementation of the IRA, making sure communities most directly affected are prioritized.
We can't celebrate with unabated joy. It is unacceptable that oil & gas leasing provisions in the bill will be tied to clean energy development, threatening frontline communities. Sacrifice zones are a direct product of racism and classism, and have no place in a climate bill.
These transformational investments have been secured thanks to this people-powered movement—everyone who called or met with their members of Congress, posted on social media, wrote a letter to the editor, attended a rally or protest, donated, or talked to their friends & family.
The road to passage of these investments has been long and rocky. The Sierra Club extends gratitude to all our Congressional champs who helped steer it to its destination — those who advocated for this bill, negotiated this bill, and voted for this bill.
After decades of working tirelessly to get these climate, jobs, & justice investments passed by Congress, & after decades of dedicated campaigning by a movement of movements, we have finally scored a critical victory. -@SierraClub Pres. @RamonCruzDiaz #IRA sierraclub.org/press-releases…
It wouldn’t be a historic climate legislation day without @HieuLe_ and I bumping into the fantastic @RepRoKhanna @RoKhanna on his way to vote!

Thanks to all of the young people & environmental activists, who for so long, had no hope that this body would do anything. They deserve credit for the $369 billion climate investment in the Inflation Reduction Act. It's only a down payment & we'll keep fighting for more.

"We’ll keep pushing [the Truck & Engine Manufacturers Association] and its member companies to fully back all federal and state regulations for cleaner trucks."
"Public pressure on truck manufacturers and their lobbyists is working, and for good reason—communities across the country cannot afford any further delay in getting polluting trucks off roads," - @HieuLe_ #CleanerTrucks fleetowner.com/emissions-effi…
Tomorrow, the House will vote to lower energy costs by $1,025/year for the average household. Democrats are ready to deliver for the people!

Right now, we have the opportunity to protect federally-managed forests for the many values they provide, & to safeguard our communities from the future impacts of climate change. Make your voice heard & submit a comment to @forestservice & @BLMNational: act.sierraclub.org/actions/Nation…
Making calls with Sierra Club Independent Action is an incredibly meaningful experience and a crucial way to build the future we need. Find your next opportunity to get involved at sc.org/callvoters ! (Paid for by sierraclubindependentaction.org)
Our West Virginia chapter (@SierraClubWest1) published an op-ed in @wvgazettemail on the state's move to stop doing business with some financial institutions for their purported "boycott" of fossil fuels, calling it "the last gasps of climate denialism." wvgazettemail.com/opinion/op_ed_…
In a BIG move, @californiapuc proposed ending subsidies for gas lines to new buildings—this will cut climate pollution, save utility customers $144 million dollars annually, & improve air quality. Clean energy in homes is the future! docs.cpuc.ca.gov/PublishedDocs/…
These health professionals are asking @EPA to set stronger standards on #particlepollution so that their patients can breathe easier with less pollution. Lung.org/stronger-stand…

Ensuring clean air & water is not a trade chip 👉🏻 "Requiring a robust review of how a project will impact a community or the environment is not an impediment, but rather a lifeline to ensure people are put above polluter profits.#StopMVPVgreensboro.com/news/local/pip…On
Victory! Today, a landmark Massachusetts climate bill became law. The Act will speed up the transition to a clean energy economy. Thank you to @jeffroy, @senatorbarrett, and the Sierra Club members who made this possible! There's more to do next session! sierraclub.org/press-releases…

Call 1-877-774-8907 now or text “house” to 69866 to urge your representative to pass the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. A vote is expected as soon as Friday. Passing this bill will be a significant step forward to addressing the climate crisis, but the fight will continue.
The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 that just passed the Senate amounts to the single most significant investment in climate action in history and puts us on the path to reduce our carbon emissions by as much as 40% by 2030.
BREAKING! 🚨 The Engine Manufacturers Association just dropped its lawsuit to stall a lifesaving clean truck rule. This is a major win for clean air and our climate. Now we just need them to stop blocking all clean truck progress.#CleanerTrucksssubscriber.politicopro.com/article/2022/0…d
Today, we spoke with @NYCCouncil members at City Hall to support its resolution calling on NY to keep its promise of an ambitious climate plan for healthy communities. Thank you @LincolnRestler and the 36 other resolution sponsors who represent over 5 million New Yorkers. twitter.com/sierraclubny/s…
Submit a public comment today for stronger particulate matter standards for cleaner air! sc.org/SootAction
It's time for Pres. Biden's EPA — led by @EPAMichaelRegan — to update these pollution limits to the strongest science-based standards, to ensure cleaner air for families, advance environmental justice, and protect public health and the climate.
Current standards for deadly & dangerous particulate matter pollution (aka soot), set by @EPA, are outdated & insufficient. #soot #AirPollution #cleanair
Scroll through this thread to see the real world impacts of the Inflation Reduction Act 👇 Then call 1-877-774-8907 or text “house” to 69866 to help us pass this bill through the House!3
Our very own @ankitjain992 in @StateImpactPA notes that failing to raise the bonds “ensures that a lot more wells are going to become abandoned and not plugged when they’re done producing.” twitter.com/PennFuture/sta…
BREAKING: Today, a fire broke out at Interco, a factory that recycles metals, including batteries. Burning batteries releases toxic substances that pose a number of public health and environmental risks. Read Sierra Club and @ucmetroeast's full statement: sierraclub.org/illinois/blog/…

.@wvgazettemail analyzed all the submitted comments & found a 2-1 ratio of WV commenters & a 4-1 ratio of VA commenters who weighed in against the request compared to those supporting it. Twice as many commenters from North Carolina, also agreed with this sentiment.
It has never been clearer about the Mountain Valley Pipeline: Residents of NC, WV & VA do not want this project to be completed. 31,000‼️ people urged regulators to deny a request by MVP backers for another 4 years. #StopMVP wvgazettemail.com/news/energy_an…
Polluters are pulling out all the stops to derail climate action. Urge your representatives to pass climate action today! Call 1-877-774-8907 now or text “house” to 69866 to urge your representative to pass the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022.
Temporarily halting drilling is a huge win for Kern County & CA @GavinNewsom, now we must STOP, DROP, & ROLL: 🛑 STOP new permitting 🛢️ DROP existing oil production 🏡 ROLL out stronger 3200ft setbacks for new & existing wells RT to show your suppor#NoDrillingWhereWereLivinging
The fight to #KeepItInTheGround on federal public lands in California has been a fight for public health & justice led by frontline communities, who've opposed drilling in their backyard. This win is a testament to their grassroots activism & engagement.
The House could vote any day, could you call in now to demand this historic climate bill passes? Call 1-877-774-8907 now or text “house” to 69866 to urge your representative to pass the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. ☎️
