Sierra Club

New York Enviros: "the greatest threat to our environment here in New York may be an unlikely suspect: big money."

The Atlantic Chapter of Sierra Club and WE ACT for Environmental Justice have a compelling op-ed today in Newsday calling for the state legislature to act on Fair Elections legislation that is currently before both houses.

The groups note that they seldom stray from purely environmental issues, but that the big money influence, particularly in the "fracking" fight, has become too much to ignore.
