- March 17 - "The Sierra Club opposes the impending military attack
on Iraq by the United States. We believe that the best course
of action is disarmament through the United Nations' authorized
inspections and weapons destruction process. We hope all parties
will use the next 48 hours to find a path to peace.
the duration or outcome of this conflict, however, we will find
ourselves in the same situation once again if the U.S. and other
nations fail to recognize that continued dependence on oil and
other fossil fuels is a significant de-stabilizing influence
in international affairs. The Sierra Club therefore reaffirms
its urgent call for the U.S. to move to a clean-energy economy
using energy-efficient technologies and renewable power."
