What's the Deal with the American Climate & Energy Security Act?

You've probably heard a lot by now about the American Climate and Energy Security Act (ACES, HR 2454), or as some others are calling it, the Waxman-Markey Bill (named for the two House reps who authored it). This clean energy jobs/climate plan has been winding through U.S. House of Representatives subcommittees and committees since early Spring, and it's expected to end up on the floor of the House next week.

As you can imagine, it's bringing a lot of debate, discussion and controversy along with it. There are so many people, organizations and industries involved in shaping the bill that you might be confused about it now. Let us help you figure it all out!

We have a new page up now all about ACES and what needs to be done - and there's also a way for you to take action on it. You can help strengthen the bill to bring a clean energy future to the U.S. that will boost our economy, create jobs, and fight global warming. Win, win, win.

Learn, take action - and then tell your friends to do the same. Do it all now at http://action.sierraclub.org/stronger

And as if we needed any more reminding, global warming predictions are getting more dire every day. Just look at yesterday's report out from the White House.
