Video Urges U.S. Reps. to Support Energy Policies

Guest Blog | May 12, 2009 | Press Releases

Savannah, Ga. (May 12, 2009) – Today, the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, in partnership with Southeast Coastal Climate Network groups, is releasing a video of constituent voices calling on Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Ga., (District 1) to be a strong leader on national climate and energy policy. In the video montage, students, working professionals, moms and dads, and even a local elected official ask Rep. Kingston to support policies, such as the proposed American Clean Energy and Security Act, that would not only create a green economy in Georgia, but also save their treasured coastal places from the perils of global warming.

The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy is coupling the release of the video with delivery of DVDs of the video postcards and a call-in day targeting Rep. Jack Kingston and Rep. John Barrow, D-Ga., (District 12), as both are pivotal in moving Georgia and our nation forward in development of a clean energy future. By supporting goals that will truly create a market for clean, safe renewable energy that can boost Georgia’s struggling economy and put more than 440,000 unemployed citizens back to work, our Georgia leaders will make the responsible choice for our future.

The Representatives can be reached at their DC offices; Rep. Kingston (202) 225-5831 and Rep. Barrow (202) 225-2823. We urge the public to call these congressmen, Tuesday, May 12, and ask them to support policies such as the American Clean Energy and Security Act. # # #
