"We’re all here to address the biggest challenge of our time — climate destruction. We don’t need to keep pursuing these toxic fossil fuels. We have options, and you know we do. Let’s double down on solar energy, let’s be more energy efficient, let’s weatherize our homes. We can build a better, healthier economy based on good-paying, clean energy jobs." - Ian Somerhalder speaks on stage while attending the Sierra Club’s Asheville Beyond Coal: A Rally for Our Future held at Pack Square on Saturday afternoon (August 24) in Asheville, N.C.
