Break Our Oil Addiction (JCPA): 5/1/09


As high energy costs are challenging households across America, Congress will vote on several comprehensive energy proposals in the coming days. Please urge our elected officials to support a comprehensive energy plan that includes a renewable electricity standard requiring that at least 15% of US energy come from clean-burning, renewable sources; a provision to extend and expand renewable energy tax incentives to encourage continued investment in renewable energy; updated energy codes for new buildings; and a significant investment in public transit. By supporting clean-burning renewable energy and efficiency, we can reduce our dependence on foreign oil, sustain our fragile environment and build a robust national economy.
