Clean Energy Solutions
The global warming page of the Sierra Club is a portal to information about greenhouse gases and global warming. It starts with an overview on global warming and energy and has links to timely features and news and more permanent pages such as "What is global warming?" In addition, fact sheets and reports including information on our current energy plan and clean and efficient energy solutions are available. Other links lead to results of current government policy, a newsletter, and information about what the public can do about the problems.
