Mark works with Green America members (businesses and individuals) to answer questions about membership, certification and renewal. He is passionate about environmental justice – particularly issues surrounding climate change and clean energy technology. Mark has worked with a grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to reversing the legacy of anthracite coal mining in a small watershed community, in part, by securing funding to reclaim abandoned mine lands. More recently, he has volunteered with his local Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal Campaign to work to shut down remaining coal-fired power plants and to push for local governments to enact bold resolutions which demand 100% clean (carbon-neutral) energy targets by 2030.
