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.
