RAN director to lead Sierra Club

The Sierra Club named its new executive director today: Michael Brune, the director of Rainforest Action Network.

Sierra Club is not the most moderate of the big enviro groups; it's no EDF or anything. But it's not super radical either.

Bringing in Brune surely says something. It's not a cautious choice; it's a good choice. RAN is quite radical, and effective. They win, and on a small budget.

How those more radical ideas will interface with Sierra Club, well, that will be fascinating to watch.

Update: the Grist interview.

Hopefully it means they stop sending me 4 lb packages of calendars and address labels.
Interestingly, an old Sierra Club guy is the head of Clean Water Action as of a year or two ago...
