A Message from Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune
"Storms, droughts, heat waves, and floods, once considered rare, are now the new normal -- and they have dramatically altered the lives of tens of millions of Americans this year alone.
"Many members of my family live in the Northeast, and we at the Sierra Club are thinking of the families affected by Hurricane Sandy and are grateful for the brave first responders who are keeping Americans safe from the storm."

between politicians who push a dirty energy agenda and those who will vote to clean up our environment and our political system
