sierra club x2

So the Sierra Club, if you don't already know, was founded on May 28th, 1892 by this totally rad guy named John Muir.  Even then, America's wild places were starting to be gobbled up in the wake of rapidly expanding populations and industrialization.  John, as you might imagine, was not in favor of that.  So, with the help of other naturalists, artists, and a bunch of other people, Muir founded the Sierra Club with a mission,

"To explore, enjoy, and protect the wild places of the earth; To practice and promote the responsible use of the earth's ecosystems and resources; To educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment; and to use all lawful means to carry out these objectives."

And the Sierra Club has been protecting the environment ever since.  Now, I'm not here to tell you to become a member or even to try and convince you to help save the Earth.  Hopefully, you already do as much as you can of that on your own.  All I'm trying to do here is acknowledge the great contribution John Muir made to the environmental cause and celebrate the Sierra Club's awesomeness in protecting and nurturing our world.  You go, guys!  Thanks!

So stately.  He's thinking deep, conservationy thoughts, I bet.
