To place our current energy and climate crisis in context, our relationships with our energy systems have dramatically changed over the past few generations. Government and industry have worked together to build a networked energy system to supply passive consumers who are not only disengaged from the energy life-cycle and its resultant environmental impacts, but who also do not have an understanding of the risks involved.
We invite you to join the Sierra Club's work to educate about and advocate for sustainable energy policies.
The Delaware Chapter of the Sierra Club opposes House Bill 86, which would end Delaware's participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI). RGGI is not just about climate change, although Delaware is uniquely vulnerable to even a modest amount of sea level rise. RGGI funds programs that support energy efficiency and renewable energy that have immediate and tangible benefits right here in Delaware; the program plays an important role in the overall energy strategy that will create cleaner air and lower health costs for all of our residents.
