New Ad Campaign Calls On Senators, Trump To Support 100% Clean Energy Economy


The Sierra Club has launched a digital advertising campaign calling on five senators and President Donald Trump to address the climate crisis impacting communities across the country.

Specifically, the videos urge Trump and U.S. Sens. Cory Gardner, R-Colo.; Joni Ernst, R-Iowa; Martha McSally, R-Ariz.; Mitt Romney, R-Utah; and Thom Tillis, R-N.C., to support a 100% clean energy economy.

“The climate crisis has been ignored by Donald Trump, and these five senators have done nothing to spur action to reduce the carbon pollution that exacerbates climate change,” comments Liz Perera, the Sierra Club’s climate policy director. “The American people demand action on climate change, and Sens. Gardner, McSally, Ernst, Tillis and Romney and Donald Trump, instead, are sitting on their hands.”

The videos, running on social media and digital platforms geotargeted to markets in Arizona, Iowa, North Carolina, Utah and Washington, D.C., can be viewed here:

A “clean” energy economy led by industrial wind and thousands upon thousands of miles of new transmission lines? Already 230 government entities across the US have banned or blocked industrial wind. Wind companies admit many negative impacts for 2640 feet from every 500 foot wind turbine yet insist on building turbines as close as 1000-1500 from the foundations of homes. Germany and Norway are both protesting industrial wind. People are also protesting the cost of having redundant systems.


The generation charts for Germany for today list 35 GW of wind and 6 GW of solar for approximately 50% renewable generation. Last week it was over 70% renewables when the solar reached 16 GW. I question the statement that people in Germany and Norway are protesting this type of electrical generation. They are both firmly committed to a renewable future. Germany made a commitment yesterday to vastly increase its wind power.
