Solar Austin is excited to announce next month’s featured speaker: Michael Brune, the executive director of the Sierra Club! An internationally acclaimed author, speaker, and environmental activist, Michael will be joining Solar Austin on July 14th to talk about his work leading the nationwide movement to move beyond fossil fuels to clean energy.
Michael has served as the Sierra Club’s executive director since 2010. Under his leadership, the Sierra Club has grown to more than 3.5 million supporters, and its Beyond Coal campaign has been recognized as one of the most effective in environmental history. Prior to joining the Sierra Club, Michael led the Rainforest Action Network for seven years, during which the organization won more than a dozen key environmental commitments from America’s largest corporations.
Michael holds degrees in economics and finance from West Chester University in Pennsylvania and is a regular contributor to the Huffington Post. His critically acclaimed book, Coming Clean: Breaking America’s Addiction to Oil and Coal (2010), details a plan for a new green economy that will create good paying jobs, promote environmental justice, and bolster national security. Michael and his wife, Mary, attribute their ongoing passion for environmental activism in part to their concern that their children inherit a healthy world.
