Sierra Club's Beyond Coal campaign has won victories to retire 106 of the nation's over 500 aging coal-fired power plants, and is working to replace those plants with clean energy like wind and solar power. Sierra Club partnered with 2011 Small Agency of the Year Mekanism Inc to spread the word about the dangerous and deadly effects of coal through this online videos series featuring 1980's TV footage.

Founded by legendary conservationist John Muir in 1892, the Sierra Club is now the nation's largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization -- with more than two million members and supporters. Our successes range from protecting millions of acres of wilderness to helping pass the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Endangered Species Act. More recently, we've made history by leading the charge to address climate disruption by moving away from the dirty fossil fuels and toward a clean energy economy.
