SIERRA magazine has gathered "Letters to the Next U.S. President" from Wen Bo, Homero Aridjis, and seven other environmental leaders, who collectively urge the United States to reassert itself as an environmental leader.

Watch Our New Video: Don’t Let Coal Con You
The coal industry has spent more than $40 million on misleading advertising pushing their "clean coal" agenda. The Sierra Club has launched a website and online video that cut through the spin from the coal industry and lay down the facts on some of their most recent ads. Check out the video and then let us know what you think about coal in the comments.

William Shatner Says "All Hands on Deck!"
Scientists say we can curb global warming and its consequences — if we take bold, comprehensive action now that adds up to an 80 percent cut in carbon emissions by 2050, or 2 percent a year.
In a new video for the Sierra Club, William Shatner reminds us that by working together we’ve successfully brought the blue whale back from the brink of extinction, and that we can harness that same "can do" spirit to stop the worst effects of global warming.

Cold Sweat
The season’s not quite upon us yet, but you can get a head start on winter adventure by reading through the cold-weather chronicles in the latest SIERRA magazine. 
Like David Ferris’s account of climbing a frozen waterfall in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. Or Debra Jones’s rookie dogsled expedition across a snow-covered Gunflint Lake in Minnesota.

Energy-Efficient Pumpkins?
With Halloween just four days before Election Day, front yards are sporting a hodgepodge of pumpkins, witches, and political yard signs.
But who says you can’t carve your message in the pumpkin itself? To celebrate Halloween and promote energy efficiency, try out ReadyMade magazine’s compact-fluorescent jack o’lantern stencil.

Sneak Attack on Wolves!
Less than a month after abandoning its disastrous delisting of gray wolves in the Rocky Mountains, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has announced new plans to take them off the endangered species list!
Unfortunately, we can expect more such last-minute attacks on wild places and creatures during the waning days of the Bush administration.
A 30-day comment period starts today.
Take action now to put a stop to this madness!
