We work hard to get Springfield to protect the environment and grow
clean energy in Illinois. We know, better than anyone, how badly we
need more leaders who care about the things we care about -
protecting Illinois' last wild places, cutting pollution, and moving
beyond coal to Illinois wind and solar.
In the next four weeks, we can do a
lot to make the next four years much more productive for
environmental advocates in Springfield and Washington. New studies
show that the environment is the sleeper issue of the election.
Among undecided voters - the people who can swing this election - 61
percent say that where a candidate stands on climate will be a top
factor in their vote. This is big. Cutting through the noise and
talking directly to undecided voters about climate is how we will
win in November. The Sierra Club is uniquely poised to make a
difference - and our members are our key strength.
Every weekend day between now and
Election Day, environmentalists will be showing up to help those who
will help us, a lot, if they win their close races November 6th.
We'll talk about the issues, and have the chance to hear how voters
are thinking about them. I hope you can join us for at least one of
these environmental action days.
