Edisto River Conflict Reveals Need for Greater Protection of SC’s Rivers


California is facing one of the worst water crises in its history.  The state's drought has drawn down lakes, rivers and reservoirs that are needed for industry, agriculture and drinking water.  A number of communities will run out of water in forty- to sixty-days if there is no rain.  If South Carolina does not plan carefully for the future use of its water, it may face the same crisis.  We will be forced to choose among agricultural, industrial and recreational use and habitat protection, as is happening in California.

Support The Energy System Freedom of Ownership Act (S.536)


The time to act is now!  We are on the cusp of passing ground-breaking solar power legislation in South Carolina (S.536)—but we need your help to move this legislation forward.

S.536, known as “The Energy System Freedom of Ownership Act,” works to allow third parties to lease solar panels to South Carolinians so that panels don’t have to be purchased outright in order to use solar energy in our state.

2014 Leadership Pledge Drive


At the January Executive Committee meeting, we announced the Leadership Pledge Drive and passed out the pledge cards.  I am proud to announce that we raised $6,500 in pledges at that meeting, toward our goal of $10,000 from our   leadership.  Group delegates were asked to take home a stack of pledge cards and pass them out to their group’s ExComs and then mail them back.

As we head into the March Appeal when all South Carolina Sierra Club members will get a letter and be asked to donate, it will be important that we can report that we have 100% support from our leadership.  Anything less is unacceptable at this point.  We’ve been struggling to keep the chapter office open. National gives us less and less every year and has let it be known chapters are on their own and must involve and engage themselves in serious fundraising.  And that starts with the Leadership.
