January 30, 2014, NEWARK: There was quite a crowd of students, a few teachers, DNREC employees, environmentalist and media representatives at this morning's campaign kickoff of the City of Newark's anti-idling campaign. Though quite overcast it was unseasonably warm even for a post-climate changed January, the perfect temperature for the outdoor event being held in the parking lot of Newark High School.

Crippling drought; Devastating wildfire; Superstorm Sandy; Climate change has come home—and Delaware residents get it. On Sunday, February 17, hundreds of Delawareans will travel to Washington, DC for the Forward on Climate Rally – the largest climate solutions rally in U.S. history. The goal is to get President Obama to take strong action on climate change starting by rejecting the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.
Tar sands have local implications for Delaware as it is being transported through the state by rail, and processed at the PBF Refinery in Delaware City.
Sierra Club applauds the work of dozens of local and regional organizations to secure a decision to strengthen and improve the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), a multi-state agreement to reduce harmful carbon pollution in nine Northeastern states.
