Next week, the full House of Representatives will vote on an energy bill that will boost the fuel efficiency of new cars for the first time in decades. Then the Senate will cast its vote.
Send your members of Congress an email message in support of clean energy right now:
The big automakers are going all out to weaken this bill. Your senators and representative need to hear from you this week - BEFORE that bill hits the floor for the decisive vote.
It's easy. Just click here and tell them to support a bill ensuring that:
* New passenger vehicles get an average of 35 miles per gallon by 2020.
* Utilities produce 15 percent of their electricity from
renewable sources by 2020.
An energy bill with these two centerpiece provisions will cut America's oil dependence, make a down payment on reducing global warming pollution, and usher in a cleaner energy future.
Even if you sent Congress a message about clean energy back in September, please be sure to send another email message at this critical juncture.
Your message from back home can do more to counter the auto lobbyists and deliver a clean energy future than any other single weapon we've got.
We've waited two decades for Congress to pass legislation that could start breaking the chains of our enslavement to the automakers and Big Oil. We're unlikely to get a second chance for many years to come.
Please seize this one chance for a clean energy future. Make your voice heard on Capitol Hill today!
