Last year, members of the Sierra Club-John Muir Chapter petitioned the Madison City Council to adopt a community-wide resolution to move to 100% clean energy, which was unanimously passed in May 2017.  One Sierra Club member who was part of the effort said: “Transitioning to 100% clean energy is only one of many steps that must be taken to prevent my generation from facing the long-term consequences of past and present environmental degradation. As a young person, I am thankful to know that there is an organization working to protect my future.”
