Today kicks off a 72 hour call-in campaign to ensure the United States Senate knows there is support for energy and climate policies that will put us on a path towards energy independence and a clean energy economy.
There is also a real and growing threat that Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and allies in both the Senate and the House of Representatives may call for votes on their “Dirty Air Act” proposals in an attempt to weaken protections offered by the decades-old, seminal environmental law known as the Clean Air Act.
Consider taking five minutes over the next three days to place a call to your Senator(s) and add your voice to this campaign! You can easily register and then use our national ally 1Sky’s Click-to-Call system during your lunch break.
All of us involved in this campaign recognize that investing in a clean energy future now, we can create millions of jobs, reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and tackle climate change — all at the same time. It’s time to ensure that our elected leaders recognize this, too.
