GLOBAL WARMING

PROJECT HOT SEAT, GREENPEACE
We provided seed funding to launch this effort to build and expand broad constituencies of environmentally informed citizens across the United States, who would be knowledgeable about the threat posed by climate change and who would hold their members of Congress accountable. Congressional leadership is key to making meaningful reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and investing in renewable energy alternatives.

SIERRA CLUB
In 2005 and 2006, the Fund supported a Fuel Economy Campaign to cut carbon dioxide pollution and curb global warming by promoting clean energy solutions through spurring American know-how to cut greenhouse gas pollution from new cars, SUVs and other light trucks. This resulted in the adoption of clean car standards in 15 states and Canadian provinces, building consumer demand for cleaner cars by showcasing hybrid vehicles, as well as mobilizing the public and media to pressure automakers to use already available emission cutting technology in their vehicles. In addition, Sierra Club launched the Cool Cities campaign across the country, encouraging U.S. cities to take action to reduce their global warming emissions. The campaign showed Americans that they could achieve substantial pollution cuts in their own communities even as polluters and top US leaders claimed nothing could be done.

GIVEN THAT WE ARE A SMALL FOUNDATION WITH A LEAN STAFFING, WE DO NOT ACCEPT UNSOLICITED PROPOSALS.
