NC's role in national climate debate

Cathy Duvall, Sierra Club's National Political Director, spoke last night in Chapel Hill about the future of climate legislation on Capitol Hill and the role North Carolina might play in the vital debate. A sizable crowd filled 3 Cups to the brim to hear how Sierrans can play a major role in breaking the stranglehold that utilities hold over the South and bring about real change.

With Congress back from its August recess, the debate on Waxman-Markey and Barbara Boxer's (D-CA) expected companion legislation in the Senate will head towards resolution. Senators from the South - Kay Hagan in particular - will play a key role in the success or failure of the bill.

  1. Dear North Carolina Sierra Club Blog,

    My name is Bill Hawthorne, and I represent maacenter.org, a leading web resource for asbestos exposure and mesothelioma cancer information. Our organization is dedicated to increasing awareness of the terrible health consequences of asbestos exposure.

    I found your site through a search and decided to contact you because of its high environmental and green presence which is extremely important in our movement. The promotion of how buildings should now be built using sustainable green products to avoid asbestos and mesothelioma as well as the awareness of past buildings and preventative steps in avoiding asbestos exposure are extremely important. My goal is to get a resource link on your site or even to provide a guest posting to be placed.

    I look forward to hearing from you. Please feel free to check out our website. Thank you for your time and consideration.
