Urge the Obama Administration to Actively Support Climate Legislation

    1. Sponsored by

      Union of Concerned Scientists

In late June, the House of Representatives took a historic vote to pass comprehensive climate and energy legislation that would put in place a nationwide plan to rein in global warming pollution and establish a cleaner approach to our nation's energy system.

This legislation establishes a critical first step in building the foundation to curb global warming, reduce our dependence on oil, and transition to a clean energy economy. Now we need the Senate to strengthen and pass the House bill.

According to a new, peer-reviewed study by the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), if we combine energy and transportation policies with a strong limit or "cap" on carbon emissions, the United States could dramatically cut global warming pollution while saving households and businesses billions of dollars in energy costs.

Please urge President Obama to play an active role in ensuring that Congress passes a strong, comprehensive climate and energy policy that reduces global warming pollution, breaks our dependence on oil, and puts Americans back to work.
