Trump wants to gut the EPA budget and decimate its staff. This would have a devastating impact on public health and the climate.

On this day, three years after President Obama designated New Mexico's Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument on May 21, 2014, these lands are in peril. Following Trump's Executive Order to review over 20 years of national monument designations (more here: fw.to/Oz8TsNd), Organ Mountains-Desert Peak is one of the places Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke could recommend rolling back protections.

"I just want people to know that you don't have to have any special powers. You don't have to be a superman. You just have to be a human." - Louisiana environmental organizer Cherri Foytlin
We couldn't agree more.
The People's Power List is a celebration of these #grassroots of the environmental movement: ordinary people, working within their communities to defend the wonders of Earth; the type of people who have been the heartbeat of the Sierra Club, throughout our 125-year history. (: @schneider_studios)
"This sculpture 'Support' wants to speak to the people in a clear, simple and direct way through the innocent hands of a child and it evokes a powerful message which is that united we can make a stand to curb the #climatechange that affects us all.

A big thank you to all for your comments and likes. It's been overwhelming. I wish I could thank each and everyone of you individually. This sculpture 'Support' placed in Venice at Ca' Sagredo, coinciding with the opening of the Venice Biennale, wants to speak to the people in a clear, simple and direct way through the innocent hands of a child and it evokes a powerful message which is that united we can make a stand to curb the climate change that affects us all. We must all collectively think of how we can protect our planet and by doing that we can protect our national heritage sites... Support our planet support our heritage! A warm hug, Lorenzo THE INSTALLATION WILL BE AT CA' SAGREDO UNTIL NOVEMBER 26th a #halcyongallery#casagredohotelvenice#lorenzoquinn#lorenzoquinnartist#biennale2017#LorenzoQuinnVenice#support#supportart#worldheritage#worldheritagesite
Thank you @MayorLevine for leading #Mayors4CleanEnergy by example today and signing a proclamation supporting a vision of powering Miami Beach with 100% clean and renewable energy!
Trump’s attack on our natural heritage continues as over two decades of national monument designations come under threat from review. Only 11 days remain to convince the @usinterior that Bears Ears National Monument must remain protected.
Heidi Harmon, a mom and one of the #Mayors4CleanEnergy, is standing up for families by promoting 100% #cleanenergy. Join her and ask your mayor to do the same! Go to sc.org/momm4ce to take action. Our goal is 100 US mayors signing on by Father's Day! #ReadyFor100

After first-generation college student Bethany Lebewitz went back to school to get her degree, rock climbing became for her a tool to navigating difficult routes in all walks of her life. But when she began climbing, there weren't many other women of color in the gym.
She wondered: if this sport had helped her deal with these other issues—issues that many other people of color also have to deal with—shouldn't there be more diversity in rock climbing?
Lebewitz started the Instagram account @browngirlsclimb with that very question in mind. She spoke with @SierraMagazine about the philosophy behind it. Go to sc.org/browngirlsclimb to read more!
"A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts." ~ Washington Irving

Moments ago, the town residents of #Hanover, #NH, UNANIMOUSLY voted to establish a goal of transitioning to 100% #cleanenergy by 2050! Today's vote builds on Hanover’s growing investment in renewable energy. In 2014, Hanover was named the EPA’s first Green Power Community in New Hampshire. The town is currently at 22 percent renewable electricity through partnerships with Dartmouth College and other businesses and institutions and town residents.
Naturalist Sir David Attenborough, who has worked to comprehensively present animal and plant life on the planet through the medium of television, was born this day in 1926.
