Last night in his State of the Union address, President Obama reiterated his commitment to passing “a comprehensive energy and climate bill… because the nation that leads the clean energy economy will be the nation that leads the global economy.”
With the President’s support, we can win the fight for comprehensive legislation in 2010 — and the first step is making sure that the word gets out about his commitment. That’s why we’ve put together a short video sharing what President Obama said about clean energy and climate in last night’s State of the Union.
We’re already closer to winning this fight than many thought possible. The vast majority of Americans are on our side. The U.S. House already passed a comprehensive bill last summer. Our movement is strong and growing — with over 250,000 handwritten letters to the Senate last year, 55,000 posts on the Repower America Wall, and much more.
And as our video shows, we have a President who understands that a clean energy revolution can create millions of American jobs, reduce our dependence on foreign oil and help keep our planet healthy for future generations.
Now it’s the Senate’s turn. Opposition from the fossil fuel industry is fierce, but we have a campaign plan to win. Together, we can make 2010 the year we begin to Repower America — and the first step is to help spread the word about Obama’s commitment to comprehensive clean energy and climate legislation:
We’ll need you with us every step of the way over the coming months. We are so close to making history — so let’s roll up our sleeves and get to work.
