Today the Sierra Club launched a new campaign demanding that President Obama make the fight against climate disruption a priority in his second term. The “Obama Climate and Clean Energy Legacy Campaign” will bring the organization’s 2.1 million members and supporters together to push the Obama administration to tackle the most serious environmental crisis of our age.

President Obama’s second term will be a pivotal four years in the fight against climate disruption,” said Michael Brune, executive director of the Sierra Club. “In his victory speech, the President invited a national climate conversation, but we also need swift, decisive action to prevent more erratic weather, superstorms and wildfires.”

“As we make critical decisions about how we power our nation and what kind of place we’ll leave for our children and grandchildren, the Sierra Club will push President Obama to define his legacy with bold climate solutions and clean energy innovation,” said Brune.  “Climate disruption is the singular issue of our time for anyone who cares about clean air, clean water and a safe future for our families.”

To demonstrate the urgency of its demands, 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 the President to be a leader in the climate fight.
