"We can no longer delay"

Repower America

Dear Friend,

"We can no longer delay putting a framework for a clean energy economy in place."

Those were President Obama's words in last week's economic address when he adopted our call for closing of the carbon pollution loophole -- a critical step towards revitalizing our economy and repowering America.

VIDEO: Obama on closing the carbon pollution loophole.

We've been running ads and talking to people across the country to raise awareness about the carbon pollution loophole. And by adopting our call, President Obama has demonstrated that he understands that a cap on carbon pollution will lead to rapid growth in clean energy investment and create millions of jobs. With unemployment at 8.5%, we know there is no time to waste.

But without swift action from Congress, these jobs will be allowed to go elsewhere, as other nations continue to outpace us on progress towards a clean energy economy.

Our leaders are debating crucial legislation right now. They need to know you stand with President Obama and millions of other Americans in calling for a clean energy economy and solutions to the climate crisis.

Please watch the video of President Obama's address and call your Representative today:


Here's a script you can use:

"Hi. This is [your name] from [your city, state]. I am calling to urge Representative _________ to support the Clean Energy Jobs Plan. These are good jobs that can't be outsourced and increase our supply of clean, free energy. It will revitalize our economy and help solve the climate crisis. That's why, as a constituent, it is very important to me that my elected officials support the Clean Energy Jobs Plan. Thank you."

Call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 to get connected to your Representative's office.

After you make your call, click here to let us know how it went.

It's time for America to lead again. It's time to close the carbon pollution loophole. Call Congress now:
