On the 12th anniversary of 9/11, Sierra Club Military Outdoors organizer Joshua Brandon and three other veterans undertook a six-day trek in Washington State's Olympic Mountains, traveling through one of the largest temperate rain forests on the planet, traversing the Ridge of the Gods and two glaciers, and summiting 7,980-foot Mt. Olympus. "Our wildest places define America itself," says Brandon, "and it is in these wildest places that we will define our legacy for generations to come."

View stunning photos and read Brandon's account of the trek.

Learn more in Beyond Coal Director Mary Anne Hitt's column.

Offshore Windpower 2013 Get Blown Away

Wind energy? We're big fans -- the Sierra Club is sponsoring the American Wind Energy Association's upcoming Offshore Windpower 2013 Conference and Exhibition this October in Providence, Rhode Island.

America already gets enough electricity from land-based wind farms to power 13 million homes. And if we can tap just a small percent of our offshore wind potential, we can slash our reliance on fossil fuels while adding tens of thousands of clean-energy jobs. At the Offshore Wind Expo, industry leaders, thought leaders, and government leaders will come together and share the latest on how this important industry is shaping up in the United States.

Learn more and register -- you might just learn something about wind energy that will blow you away!


Pagan Island Protect
Too Beautiful to Bomb

Pagan, a small island in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, is home to many threatened and endangered species, some of which are found nowhere else in the world. The island has supported the ancestors of Pagan islanders for over 3,000 years, as evidenced by Chamorro stone ruins found skirting her beautiful beaches.

The U.S. military plans to occupy all of Pagan Island for live-fire training and military exercises, ignoring the indigenous rights of Pagan Islanders, and the devastating environmental impacts that such activity will cause.
