ALEC: Don't Kill Clean Energy

    1. Sponsored by

      Environmental Defense Action Fund

With national climate and energy policy stalled in Washington, 29 states plus the District of Columbia have adopted state renewable portfolio standards (RPSs). These energy standards have helped more than double America's non-hydro renewable energy capacity over the last five years, making renewables by far the fastest growing energy sector in the country.

But the dirty energy lobby is waging an all-out assault on the clean energy revolution — and they're working through the notorious American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) to push model legislation to gut state renewable energy standards.

With companies like Koch Industries and Exxon Mobil sitting on ALEC's energy, environment and agriculture task force, they are trying to kill clean energy in America.

Sign the petition right now and tell ALEC drop its backward, fossil fuel-funded assault on America's booming clean energy industry.

      twofold: renewable energy should be a major part of our economy and the world's economy, and ALEC only cares about corporate profits for its members and not much else no matter how many or what it harms

      Global climate change exists, ALEC. And fossil fuel overuse is the primary cause.

      please REMOVE my signature. I do not have enough knowledge on this topic to support it. I signed in error and feel like I was "tricked" into choosing the "sign" button.
