Sierra Club Statement on Hillary Clinton’s Energy Proposals
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Today, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton released a new energy plan as part of her campaign for the Democratic Nomination for President.
In response, Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune released the following statement:
“We applaud Secretary Clinton for laying out a bold energy plan that rightly identifies the expansion of our clean energy economy as a top priority. From updating our energy grid for renewable capacity to getting dangerous, unsafe crude oil trains off the rails, the initiatives she lays out will go a long way toward keeping our air and water clean and our families safe. While we know that getting off of dangerous fuel sources like oil, gas, coal, and nuclear must be our goal, this plan is a great step forward that will create jobs and help tackle the climate crisis.”
Hillary laid out complex plan for renewable energy in July and two days ago voiced her opposition to the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.
