Sierra Club holds environmental rally at Statehouse

The Sierra Club is trying to call attention to the link between a healthy environment and a thriving economy.

Leaders of the organization's state chapter say they're concerned that Rhode Island lawmakers mistakenly view the environment as an issue separate from economic concerns. They hosted a rally, the 'Environment is Everyone's Business,' Wednesday night on the Statehouse lawn. About 75 people attended.

Keynote speaker Michael Dorsey is a director for the club's national organization. Dorsey says he wants to remind everyone that the environment, economy and public health are intertwined.

He says there are no jobs on a dead planet.
