WASHINGTON, D.C. –(ENEWSPF)—July 26, 2015. Tonight, 2016 Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton rolled out her plan to fight the climate crisis and grow the clean energy economy to 33 percent of the nation’s energy mix by 2027, enough to power every home in America.

The Sierra Club has not yet begun the endorsement process for the 2016 Presidential race.

In response, Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune released the following statement:
