"Cool Cities" is the Club's national campaign to get cities to address global warming by making city operations more energy-efficient. The Sierra Club has teams working in a number of Texas cities to ask their mayors to get on board, and we need your help!

All over America, communities are taking action to help solve global warming.
From hybrid vehicle fleets in Charlotte, to green buildings in Austin, and homes powered with renewable energy in Seattle, local governments are moving forward with innovative energy solutions that curb global warming, save taxpayer dollars, and create healthier cities.
At a time when the federal government is failing to act, these local leaders are moving America toward a safer and more secure future.
So what is a "CoolCity"? These are cities that
have made a commitment to stopping global warming by signing
the U.S. Mayor's Climate Protection Agreement.
The CoolCities campaign helps cities turn their commitments into action by pushing for smart energy solutions.
