Commitment to Action

Cool Cities Campaign

Commitment by

Sierra Club

In 2006, the Sierra Club committed to transform the national landscape on climate change through the Cool Cities Campaign. The Cool Cities Campaign has four objectives: 1) Enlisting more cities, counties, and other local government entities to commit to reducing global warming emissions and implementing smart energy solutions and administrative policies; 2) Turning local decision-makers, community leaders, and individuals into outspoken advocates and partners in the fight to solve global warming; 3) Demonstrating to the American public that smart energy solutions are feasible and cost-effective, and that the country truly can rise to the challenge and curb global warming; and 4) Channeling the success and momentum at the local and state levels to break the current national impasse on climate change, leading to meaningful administrative federal action on global warming.
