I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.

Global Warming and Energy
anthony_murray_power_sm.jpg Today we face fundamental energy and climate crises, which are potentially devastating. The geopolitical and environmental consequences of our dependence on fossil fuels threaten our national security, economy, health, environment and potentially threaten the planet's very existence.

Climate scientists believe that carbon dioxide (CO2) levels above 450 parts per million would result in severe climate impacts. To reach levels at which climate stabilization is more likely, U.S. greenhouse gas emissions must be reduced at least 2% per year, and this means a switch to clean energy. The time has come to move away from 19th century technologies and support the clean, completely renewable energy sources of solar, wind, ocean and geothermal.

As Sierrans, we are ready to do what is necessary to change the catastrophic environmental consequences of global warming. We will do this through involvement in local and national land use, environmental and energy legislation, and through our own personal commitment to conservation awareness and action in each of our lives.
