Victory Fund

 

redford_new3-200x284.jpg

At a moment when we needed bold environmental leadership…the Dirty Dozen gave us obstruction.

Give to the LCV Victory Fund before September 20 and bounce them from office.

I wonder what it will take to finally get America to wake up and pass comprehensive clean energy and climate change legislation.

I thought we would finally see landmark environmental change this year. But what did we get from the U.S. Senate? Nothing.  

I’m convinced we need more focus on key solutions -- like electing new leaders. Leaders who will again pick up the fight for strong climate policies that crack down on corporate polluters and transition us to a clean energy economy.

Will you join me? Click here to help bring down the Dirty Dozen so we can continue working to pass laws that protect the environment.  Contribute to the LCV Victory Fund today.

In July, we learned that the U.S. Senate wouldn’t take up comprehensive clean energy and climate legislation before their summer recess, likely dooming its chances this year. Then the Senate left town without even voting on a bill to hold BP responsible for the catastrophe in the Gulf.

An unquestionably broad majority supports moving to clean energy and addressing climate change. But again and again, Big Oil, Dirty Coal and their allies in Congress, led by the Republican leadership stand stubbornly in the way of progress. 

They have polluted the halls of Congress long enough. 

Because of their obstruction, we’re sending $1 billion overseas to buy oil every single day.  Because of their defiance, we have more pollution but fewer green jobs.  Because they’ve been bought by the special interests, Big Oil and Dirty Coal’s cronies in Congress have more to say about U.S. energy policy than you or I.

But we can fix this, Eric. We don’t have to tolerate this attack on our energy future.  Election Day 2010 gives us our chance to bring to U.S. Senate new environmental champions – like Paul Hodes, Robin Carnahan and Joe Sestak – who will fight for the laws we need to protect the planet. 

When it comes to educating the public about environmental issues, no one runs a better program than the League of Conservation Voters Victory Fund.  I can assure you that your gift will be a sound investment in a shrewd strategy and the most state-of-the-art campaign tactics.  But in order to have all the pieces in place, all the money needs to be in the door by September 20. 

Give to the LCV Victory Fund today and contribute to an early retirement for the Dirty Dozen.

This is an opportunity to finally break the vice grip that the Big Polluters have on our environmental laws.  Together, we can make an impact.

Sincerely,

David H. Koch in 1996. He and his brother Charles are lifelong libertarians and have quietly given more than a hundred million dollars to right-wing causes, such as the Tea Party. 

This Tea Party, is supposed to be about a bottoms up, grass roots movement, but in reality, it looks more like a top down, corporate driven machine, with all kinds of funding from billionaires and secret meetings.

 Eric - 22 hours ago - nytimes.com 

Over the past decade, whenever I went to China and engaged Chinese on their pollution and energy problems, inevitably some young Chinese would say: "Hey, you Americans got to grow dirty for 150 years, using cheap coal and oil. Now it is our turn.
