BP Disaster has Obama Talking About Clean Energy
“For decades, we have talked and talked about the need to end America’s century-long addiction to fossil fuels. And for decades, we have failed to act with the sense of urgency that this challenge requires. Time and again, the path forward has been blocked – not only by oil industry lobbyists, but also by a lack of political courage and candor… Now is the moment for this generation to embark on a national mission to unleash American innovation and seize control of our own destiny…. The tragedy unfolding on our coast is the most painful and powerful reminder yet that the time to embrace a clean energy future is now. Now is the moment for this generation to embark on a national mission to unleash America’s innovation and seize control of our own destiny.” Full speech >
A bi-partisan bill in the U.S. Senate that would move us responsibly toward clean energy- the CLEAR Act. This equitable solution does not sell out to special interests. We encourage you to call Senators Barbara Boxer (202 224-3553) and Diane Feinstein (202 224-3841) to urge them to support this bill.
