UPDATED WITH VIDEO! - Sierra Club's Carl Pope Debates Chevron CEO Dave O'Reilly
As promised here is a video clip from last night's debate - where Carl Pope gets Dave O'Reilly to agree to work with him against the coal industry.
Last night out in San Francisco was a long-awaited debate between our own executive director Carl Pope and Chevron CEO Dave O'Reilly. The debate was organized by the Commonwealth Club. I will now point you toward some good news articles about the debate.

Pope replied, to applause: "It would help if you would get out of the way."
