3. Sierra Club Beyond Coal was financed by Chesapeake Gas until a few years ago

During the 20th century, it was plausible that we could protect the atmosphere by switching to gas fired electricity and use other methods like efficiency standards and refits. The Kyoto treaty called for 30% reductions in CO2. Now we know better.

To their credit, the Sierra Club has stopped huge numbers of coal fired plants in the Ohio Valley, and accomplished the renewable energy standards and efficiency standards for electricity companies in Colorado and Ohio.
