Clean Energy Jobs:

The Missouri Sierra Club is organizing a series of Clean Energy Job tours across the state of Missouri. In July we completed a successful tour of CG Power Systems in Washington, which manufactures transformers for wind and solar power. Soon we will have tours in both central and western Missouri, to show the myriad of enterprises which are creating the new clean energy economy.

About the U.S. Conference of Mayors Agreement

At least 1024 mayors from the 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, representing a total population of over 88,499,854 citizens have signed the US Mayors Climate Protection Agreement so far. This is a resolution to meet the global warming reduction targets of the Kyoto Protocol by 2012. The agreement was that each city would meet or beat the target to reduce its GHG emissions 7% below its 1990 levels by 2012.

 

In the spring of 2005, Seattle Mayor Greg Nichols was disappointed the United States wouldn't join the rest of the world in agreeing to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. To show support among local leaders, he resolved to get 141 mayors, the same number of countries required to ratify the Kyoto Protocol, to pledge to cut their carbon footprint. Needless to say, many more than 141 mayors joined this effort.

In Missouri at least 21 cities made the pledge including St. Louis, Kansas City, and Columbia. With leadership in city hall, we can tackle global warming in all parts of our communities. But moving forward is a community-wide effort.
