I have exciting news to share. House Energy & Commerce Committee

Chair Henry Waxman and Subcommittee Chair Ed Markey have

introduced The American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009

(ACES), which will jumpstart a clean energy economy by creating

millions of new clean energy jobs, reducing our dependence on

oil, and cutting global warming pollution.

But, Big Oil and their cohorts in Congress are determined to

throw roadblocks in the way of this legislation at every turn.

Reps. Waxman and Markey have said they want this bill out of

committee by Memorial Day. That means these next few weeks will

be critical in our efforts to make sure this bill moves quickly

out of committee and on to a full vote. Will you email your

representative, who is on the House Energy & Commerce Committee,


Click here to ask your represenative to vote yes on this bill in

committee and send it to the House floor for a full vote.


President Obama supports the move to a clean energy economy, but

the oil and coal companies aren't going to give up without a

fight. So we need to go all out to make sure the committee

passes a strong bill.

The ACES bill will put us on a path to a clean energy future

that creates jobs, improves our national security, and protects

the planet by:

**Supporting the development of new clean energy sources, such

as wind, solar and geothermal, by requiring utilities to

generate at least 25% of their electricity from renewable

resources by 2025;

**Dramatically boosting energy efficiency, and using 15% less

energy by 2020; and

**Reducing global warming pollution 30% by 2020.

We also want to make sure that the final bill makes polluters

pay for pollution permits.

Send a message to your representative today urging him or her to

vote for the American Clean Energy and Security Act.


As we prepare to celebrate Earth Day next week, it could not be

a better time to finally make progress on comprehensive

legislation that safeguards our planet from global warming and

fixes the economy at the same time.

Thank you for all that you do,

Gene Karpinski
