(Greenpeace) Urgent: Big Oil vs. Wind Energy February 24, 2006 8:03 AM

Big Oil vs. Wind Energy

I never thought Id be writing you with something positive to say about Bushs energy plans, but I have to admit that I agree with him that our nation is addicted to oil. Unfortunately, members of his own party dont seem to agree with him about the urgent need to embrace renewable energy sources like wind power. In fact, Representative Don Young, of Alaska, is trying to kill plans for the first offshore wind farm in America. And hes not stopping there hes trying to ban ALL offshore wind farms within 1.5 miles of any shipping lane, even though oil platforms can be built within 500 feet of shipping lanes.

This is a clear attempt to block big oils up and coming competition.

TAKE ACTION NOW! Tell Congress to blow off efforts to block wind energy.

This is urgent, if Rep. Young is successful, the future of wind energy is in real jeopardy. Please, take just a second to act TODAY. The vote is just days away, so we have to act immediately. Send this alert to your friends, family, and coworkers to spread the word.

Your friendly neighborhood energy campaigner,

Kate Smolski
