Don't Let Clean Energy Jobs Go to China

    1. Sponsored by

      Alliance for Climate Protection

While Congress has delayed action on climate and clean energy legislation, the rest of the world is moving on aggressively.

China just announced it plans to set up a domestic carbon trading program. And it is backing up these efforts with serious investments in clean, renewable energy. Last year, China invested nearly twice as much as the United States in clean energy technologies, and has now installed nearly as much renewable energy capacity as the United States has.

China is launching all these massive clean energy efforts that will create a 21st century clean energy economy. If the U.S. doesn’t act now, we’ll miss the opportunity to create jobs that American workers need.

America has a history of leadership in the technological revolutions that change the world. We won the race to put a man on the moon, and we led the world in creating the Internet. Yet in the clean energy race, our global competitors are winning. And that means we could lose the chance to create millions of American jobs in new clean energy industries. 

The clean energy revolution will shape the global economy. And we should seize the opportunity to lead it. We can’t afford to stand still while China leads the clean energy race. 

Take action and demand clean energy jobs and U.S. leadership in the global clean energy revolution.

To:
YOU, take action
China is launching massive clean energy efforts that will create jobs and a 21st century clean energy economy.

If the U.S. doesn’t act now, we’ll miss the opportunity to create jobs that American workers need.

We can’t afford to stand still while China leads the clean energy race. I demand clean energy jobs now!

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      If you don't sign, you can't comment? Strange! That's exactly like the Modern Democracy, where the silent majority is considered absent from the state.

      Here is our "moment of truth" for our nation! Are we really going to help people in this country have jobs?...good jobs, jobs that support clean energy for the people, animals and environment?

      Are we going to continue to bow to the oil industry and the natural gas industry or are we going to create a new, better reality for this earth planet and all the inhabitants on it? This is our moment of truth!
