Tell Congress: Increase Our Investment in Wind Energy

    1. Sponsored by

      American Wind Energy Association

Recent surveys show that 89% of voters believe that increasing the amount of energy that America gets from wind is a good idea.

It's pretty rare for 89% of American voters agree on anything, and our near unanimous support for increasing wind energy shows how critical it is. Now we just need to channel that strong support to impact law and legislation.

American wind power is a clean, affordable and homegrown answer to meeting our nation's energy demands.

Generating capacity from wind energy has increased in recent years -- 35% of all new capacity created in the past four years comes from wind energy -- but we haven't done nearly enough as a nation to move towards a cleaner energy future powered by wind.

The time for waiting is over.

Take action today and urge Congress to take concrete steps to increase our nation's investments in American wind power.

      This nation is blessed with numerous areas where wind would be a very viable energy source. In most of those, we simply allow it to blow and do no one any good. How foolish is that?

      When 89% of the population agrees about something, isn't it time for Congress to get off the dime and DO something? Or are partisan politics more important to you than we are? [Hint: we disagree with that assessment. And we can do something about it.]

      we know that the human garbage in the Republican & teapot parties won't, because Big Oil is their number one pimp!

      So far the main investment in wind coming out of Washington is all the doublespeaking hot air coming from both sides of the political aisle. I imagine that some people will have heart attacks if Congress actually does something useful for the nation versus paying off their rich puppetmasters...?

      Why are we still talking about renwable forms of energy in 2011, instead of doing it, when no less than President Carter said that investing in such energy sources as wind and solar was a necessity over thirty years ago?
