Get Serious about Clean, Renewable Energy

President, after president, after president...for the past 40 years...has given lip service to the need for ending our addiction to fossil fuels.

We have seen what offshore oil drilling can do to damage the environment, the fishing industry and tourism. We have seen what dirty coal can do in terms of mountaintop removal, smog, acid rain, mercury pollution, and fly ash waste. We have watched the carbon pollution increase and the global average temperature rise.

Tell President Obama that it is time to get serious about shifting to clean, renewable energy.

Add your name to a letter to President Obama, and let him know that we stand with him for a strong renewable energy and climate bill to end our dependence on oil and other fossil fuels and to build America's clean energy future.
