Lightbulbs to Leadership

Lightbulbs to Leadership

As the catastrophic consequences of inaction seep into the public consciousness people everywhere are starting to take steps to fight global warming. But it’s not enough to change light-bulbs and dispense with plastic bags — we need bold, fundamental, and rapid action on climate change — action as outlined at 1sky.org, CoolCities.us and Greenpeace’s Global Hotseat.

The increasingly radicalized Sierra Club is trying to galvanize its vast membership into providing the political force that can urgently focus the politicians’ attention with its Lightbulbs to Leadership Campaign.

As the catastrophic consequences of inaction seep into the public consciousness people everywhere are starting to take steps to fight global warming. But it’s not enough to change light-bulbs and dispense with plastic bags — we need bold, fundamental, and rapid action on climate change — action as outlined at 1sky.org, CoolCities.us and Greenpeace’s Global Hotseat.

The increasingly radicalized Sierra Club is trying to galvanize its vast membership into providing the political force that can urgently focus the politicians’ attention with its Lightbulbs to Leadership Campaign.

A major facet of this new campaign is a drive to get as many citizens as possible to weigh in on a federal proposal telling the major automotive companies to speed up their production of energy-efficient automobiles. Making cars go farther on a gallon of gas will save drivers money at the pump and cut global warming pollution. The deadline for public comment is July 1.

Thank you for reading The Nation

We hope you enjoyed the story you just read, just one of the many incisive, deeply-reported articles we publish daily. Now more than ever, we need fearless journalism that shifts the needle on important issues, uncovers malfeasance and corruption, and uplifts voices and perspectives that often go unheard in mainstream media.

Throughout this critical election year and a time of media austerity and renewed campus activism and rising labor organizing, independent journalism that gets to the heart of the matter is more critical than ever before. Donate right now and help us hold the powerful accountable, shine a light on issues that would otherwise be swept under the rug, and build a more just and equitable future.

For nearly 160 years, The Nation has stood for truth, justice, and moral clarity. As a reader-supported publication, we are not beholden to the whims of advertisers or a corporate owner. But it does take financial resources to report on stories that may take weeks or months to properly investigate, thoroughly edit and fact-check articles, and get our stories into the hands of readers.

Donate today and stand with us for a better future. Thank you for being a supporter of independent journalism.
