President Obama is calling for Congress to send him a comprehensive climate bill. We cannot sit and wait for the economy to get better on its own; it's time to rebuild America. Help the Environmental Defense Action Fund raise one million dollars in the next 30 days. We need to educate the rest of America about the economic benefits of a green energy economy. Even with the support of the White House, we still need Congress to pass legislation that can cut global warming pollution, create jobs, and reward innovation.
"So I ask this Congress to send me legislation that places a market-based cap on carbon pollution and drives the production of more renewable energy in America." – President Barack Obama, February 25, 2009
What's at Stake
A strong cap and trade bill will:
Cut America's global warming pollution 80% by 2050 to avoid the catastrophic threats of run-away climate change.
Unleash powerful economic incentives for American manufacturers to build and install clean energy technologies.
Create millions of good paying jobs in towns large and small across the country.
Reward innovation and ingenuity and establish America as the global leader in green energy technologies.
