Join Us for a Free Film Showing: Story of the decline of the coal industry, the cost to people’s lives, and the need for a ‘just transition’ to a new energy future.
Special Showing of the New
National Geographic Documentary Film
FROM THE ASHES.

From Ashes
From The Ashes is a groundbreaking new documentary that goes beyond the rhetoric of the “War on Coal” to explore the energy transition emerging from the response to climate change. It is a compelling look at the lives and issues to include a heartbreaking look at stake for our economy, health and climate.

Learn more about an industry on the edge and what it means for our future. WNY is a part of the coal story as witnessed locally in the closing of the NRG Huntley Plant and its impact on Tonawanda.

The film will be followed by a discussion led by David Alicea, President of the Board of New York Interfaith Power and Light and organizer for the Sierra Club.

Let’s Bring Electric Buses to Western NY!

Sign our Petition to the NFTA to encourage the purchase of Zero Emission Electric Buses!

e bus petition

The Sierra Club Niagara Group is asking the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA) to purchase Electric Zero Emissions Buses (ZEB), instead of methane-burning compressed natural gas or hybrid buses.  These Zero Emission vehicles are good for the environment, business, and fleet operations. Some of the benefits include emission elimination, energy efficiency, market acceleration and job creation, and health benefits. It is estimated that $150,000 in health care costs are saved over the life of the ZEB. There will be opportunities for action and advocacy to support this campaign.

Somerset Lighthouse Wind Project

Wind Turbines

The Sierra Club strongly endorses wind energy as one of the forms of energy generation that will be required to move us off fossil fuels.  However, neither the Niagara Group nor national Sierra Club have endorsed the Lighthouse Project proposed by Apex at this time because the process is just beginning and we will wait to see the final siting and plan before we give our endorsement.  However, we actively work to promote the benefits of wind as a necessary strategy and to rebut all forms of misinformation circulated by individuals and groups.
