The House of Representatives will vote in a matter of days--possibly as soon as this week--on landmark legislation to tackle climate change, jumpstart our economy and begin building America's clean energy future.
We can avoid the most severe consequences forecast in the report if we begin taking action now.
By passing the American Clean Energy and Security Act, Congress will take an important first step to protect our nation from further damage from climate change, while at the same time putting America on the path toward a cleaner, safer, more secure and more prosperous future. The transition to a clean energy economy will put America back to work building wind turbines, solar panels, and energy efficient vehicles. We'll create new exports and make our nation less dependent on the dirty, imported fuels that are destroying our planet. And we will help ensure a safe future for our children and grandchildren.
You have a critical role to play in ensuring Congress acts to address the climate crisis. Please urge your member of Congress to vote YES on the American Clean Energy and Security Act.
