As we approach this Earth Day on April 22nd, the Senate is considering climate and clean energy legislation that would have an important and lasting impact on our environment. We must urge them to pass it. Help start an Earth Day revolution by signing our petition to the Senate.
Clean energy will ultimately make energy cheaper, create jobs and protect the environment from the worst impacts of global warming. It's time for Congress to invest in clean energy and energy efficiency technology and put a cap on carbon pollution that harms our air and water and endangers the health of the planet and its inhabitants.
The House of Representatives took action on climate change legislation last June. Now, the Senate must follow suit and make sure America leads the world's clean energy economy in the 21st century.
Tell your Senators to pass climate change legislation this year and invest in our clean energy future.
Since Earth Day began 40 years ago, and despite incredible progress on environmental protection, America has a failing energy policy that continues to reward polluters and threatens our national security by keeping us dependent on foreign oil. Let's help our economy by building a clean energy future.
The House has already passed a climate bill. Now, the Senate must follow suit. I urge you to support a comprehensive clean energy jobs and climate plan, including a cap on carbon pollution, that will:
* Invest in clean energy sources such as wind and solar
* Create millions of new clean energy jobs right here in America
* Cut our dependence on foreign oil
* Reduce the carbon pollution that causes global warming
Making the shift to clean energy will ultimately make energy cheaper, create jobs and protect the environment from the worst impacts of global warming. As we approach the anniversary of Earth Day, I hope you will renew your commitment to protecting the environment and doing the right thing by making sure we lead the world's clean energy economy in the 21st Century.
