Take Action: Clean Cars = Clean Air! Move Forward with Clean Fuel Standards
Right now President Obama has the ability to set "Tier 3" clean-fuel and vehicle standards. These standards would lower the sulfur content of gasoline, thereby reducing air pollution, saving lives, and creating jobs. Big Oil wants to stop these clean fuel standards, but we can't wait for clean air.

Get Involved: 100 Days of Action
This week the Sierra Club launched "100 Days of Action on Climate," a series of local and national actions focused on bringing climate disruption to the forefront of the national conversation and pressing President Obama to be a leader in the climate fight.
During this period, allies and activists from around the country will host events ranging from inauguration-watch parties in New Mexico, to a national climate rally on Presidents Day weekend in Washington, D.C., to town hall meetings across the nation. It's all part of highlighting the broad support from Americans for fighting the climate crisis.
