Massive wildfires and freak tornadoes. Record-breaking drought and heat waves. The signs of climate change are here, and they are frightening. They are telling us we need to get serious about reducing our carbon emissions — now.
The good news is, we can. We can achieve a clean energy future, leaving our kids the healthier, safer world they deserve. And you can help.
We invite you to be part of the solution. Explore our site, learn more, and consider taking action through our partner organizations. Each step you take lowers the temperature on our global warming thermometer.

As taxpayers, we’re subsidizing the most profitable industry on the planet — Big Oil — while their product devastates our climate. Doesn’t make sense, does it?
It’s only happening because fossil fuel lobbyists and folks like the billionaire Koch Brothers spend millions to unfairly influence politics in Washington. They rig the system for fossil fuels and against clean energy — and our kids’ future.
Coal is burned throughout the U.S. to produce electricity. It is a very dirty source of energy, contributing to climate change, asthma, and dangerous toxins in our air and water. It’s time to phase out coal and embrace new, clean energy sources!
Add your voice to the Sierra Club’s efforts to move our country beyond coal.
This website and the associated ad campaign with Flora and Frankie are a project of New Energy Economy, sponsored by Breakthrough Strategies & Solutions, LLC, a consulting firm dedicated to climate solutions and sustainable development.
Betsy Taylor, President of Breakthrough Strategies & Solutions (BSS), and Kathy Washienko, a clean energy activist and BSS partner, teamed up to help the public take action in the wake of extreme weather across the country in 2012. We’re both mothers and, like Flora, we worry for our kids. We believe it’s our country’s moral responsibility to step up to the challenge of climate disruption. And we believe we can do it — but only if enough of us start leaping to it—by making changes in our own lives, and, most importantly, by demanding clean energy solutions from our elected officials.
