Make Your Voice Heard: 2014 Conservation Survey
This fall we are honored to have Bruce Hamilton, the Deputy Executive Director for the national Sierra Club as our speaker for our Night With Sierra Club fundraiser event. A Night For Sierra Club is a special evening, once every two years, where we can join together to celebrate the progress we have made and honor those who have made it possible. We encourage everyone to attend and to invite your friends and family so they can learn more about the Sierra Club and environmentalism in Oklahoma in a fun and special setting.
This year's Night With Sierra Club is September 27, 2014 in the evening. Once again, it will be held in the Eclipse Ballroom at Remington Park in Oklahoma City. Valet parking is complimentary and a full meal (with vegetarian option) will be served. Sponsorship opportunities with an exclusive VIP reception with our speaker are available.
Tickets are on sale now and we have discounted tickets available for the first month of sales. We also have a discounted sponsorship opportunity. So buy now to save money.
Also, for the first time ever, we are having a contest to award the Oklahoman who has most damaged the environment. Everyone who buys their tickets early will have the chance to nominate people for this award!
I hope you can attend this special evening.
Who’s on our planet’s side?
This legislative session, more than any other session in Oklahoma’s history, the environment was under constant attack by well-funded and organized corporate lobbyists and radical right special interests.
United States Supreme Court Upholds Clean Air Protections, Knocks Oklahoma Polluters
Washington, D.C. - The United States Supreme Court has ruled in favor of a plan to reduce health-harming haze air pollution in Oklahoma. The Court denied a request by Attorney General Scott Pruitt and Oklahoma Gas and Electric (OG&E) asking for a review of the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals prior decisions to uphold the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s plan to cut haze pollution. For a third time, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt’s arguments have been rejected by the courts.
“Today’s decision means an end to the delays that have prevented Oklahomans from getting the cleaner, safer air they deserve. The highest courts in the land have affirmed and reaffirmed the need for OG&E to clean up its coal plants and have ruled against Attorney General Pruitt’s arguments three times. The decision means OG&E must stop making excuses and develop a sensible plan to clean up its polluting plants,” said Whitney Pearson, Beyond Coal organizer in Oklahoma.
