Dear Alice,

Don't let Big Oil derail clean energy legislation.

Email your Representative Today!

Last month, the House Energy & Commerce Committee took a huge step towards jumpstarting our economy with clean energy jobs when they passed the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 (ACENow, this legislation will be voted on as soon as next week in the House.

Passing this legislation will bring us closer than ever to truly putting us on a path to a clean energy future.  But, Big Oil is doing everything in their power to derail this legislation. Will you contact your Member of Congress to insist that this bill is strengthened and passed?

Click here to ask your Representative to strengthen and pass the ACES bill today.

This legislation will help both our economy and our planet by helping to create millions of jobs, reducing our dependence on oil, and cutting global warming pollution.  To make sure the bill creates even more clean energy jobs, we would also like to see improvements in the bill that strengthen requirements and increase investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency, as well as preserve the Obama administration's ability to regulate dangerous pollutants.

But, Big Oil and their cohorts in Congress are stopping at nothing to keep us addicted to dirty energy.  They are flooding the halls of Congress with misinformation, and we must counter their attacks. 

Please ask your Member of Congress to strengthen and pass this critical legislation.

Passing ACES legislation would jumpstart a clean energy economy by:

  • Supporting the development of new clean energy sources, such as wind, solar and geothermal, by requiring utilities to generate at least 20% of their electricity from renewable resources, with a portion met through efficiency by 2020;
  • Dramatically boosting energy efficiency in building, appliances, and homes, saving over $25 billion per year by 2030; and
  • Reducing global warming pollution by at least 17% by 2020 and 83% by 2050.

Send a message to your representative today urging him or her to defend, strengthen and pass the American Clean Energy and Security Act (HR 2454).

We have a narrow window of time to move this legislation..  Please don't wait – email your Representative today.

Thank you for all that you do,

Sincerely,


Gene Karpinski
