Take Action: No Special Treatment for Dirty Oil -- read about it. Take Action: No Special Treatment for Dirty Oil

Despite a recent decision by the Obama administration to reevaluate the Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline and its proposed route, during the past week we have seen legislative moves in both the House and Senate to expedite its approval.

The Sierra Club celebrates Mercury Awareness Week December 5-11 as President Obama prepares to issue the first nationwide protections against toxic mercury from coal plants later this month. Americans are planning rallies and awareness events to show their support for these long-overdue protections, while Big Coal and Big Oil are lobbying hard to block these commonsense safeguards.

High fives to the Sierra Club's Chicago Beyond Coal organizers!

Volunteers cemented 800 photos on a folding wall with the title: "We all have the right to breathe clean air."

For three months, volunteers collected hundreds of photo petitions on college campuses, at local events, and while canvassing in the Chicago neighborhoods affected by the Windy City's two ancient coal plants.

For Veterans Day last month, three Bay Area veterans (including one Sierra Club staffer) committed to building sustainable communities and helping other vets make the transition to civilian jobs. They raised more than $7,000 to help sponsor a two-day, hands-on training for local veterans to install a solar electric system on the home of a low-income family in San Francisco's Bayview district.
