USA: National Plug In Day To Reach 60 Communities

John Muir, who founded the Sierra Club in 1892, loved to walk. His journeys on foot could span hundreds of miles. Muir passed away well before the heyday of the American automobile, but if he were alive today, I wonder: How would America’s legendary naturalist get around?

A century-and-a-quarter later, the Sierra Club continues to promote walking, as well as biking, public transit and other earth-friendly modes of transportation. But to fulfill its environmental mission in the 21st century, the organization acknowledges that America’s transportation picture has dramatically changed since Muir’s day. The world is hungry for energy, and the club’s 1.4 million members and supporters face tough transportation choices. As a result, the Sierra Club has become one of the leading forces behind National Plug In Day, an event to educate the public about electric vehicles.

The Sierra Club, in association with Plug In America and the Electric Auto Association, organized National Plug In Day, which will take place on September 23, 2012, in 60 communities across the United States. Exact locations and times are available at Pluginday.org.
