Sierra Club Prefers Coal to LNG.

Inside CalEPA is reporting that the Sierra Club is holding firm to its opposition to LNG, citing increased dependence on foreign energy, potential safety issues, and contributions to global warming as reasons to steer clear of LNG.

The Sierra Club is set to approve a sweeping new energy policy that promotes alternatives like wind energy and, that makes concessions for more environmentally un-friendly technologies such as coal. The group cites its concessions to coal energy as part of a "harm reduction strategy" rather than an endorsement.
