    Let's Repower, Refuel, and Rebuild America
    Repower, Refuel, and Rebuild As the new presidential administration begins taking shape, it's critical that they hear from you. Right now we have a great opportunity to create a clean energy future -- by getting all of our energy from clean sources, cutting our dependence on oil, creating clean-energy jobs, and reducing global warming by 80 percent.

    Are you looking forward to working with President-elect Obama on these critical priorities? Then let him know by signing our petition to repower, refuel, and rebuild America.

    Blink and You'll Miss It
    Clean Coal Facility Psst! Wanna see what clean-coal technology really looks like? A brand new Reality ad campaign is ready to debunk the myth of "clean coal" from the coal industry.

    Environmental experts agree that coal is the dirtiest fuel America uses to produce electricity. The Reality Coalition, a joint project of the Sierra Club, Alliance for Climate Protection, League of Conservation Voters, Natural Resources Defense Council, and National Wildlife Federation, is challenging the coal industry to come clean in its advertising and in its operations.
