The First Hundred Days Start With You
from Wildlife Promise
I’m excited to report that since mid-November, over 160,000 people have signed the petition urging President Obama to usher in America’s clean energy economy during his first 100 days.
The first 100 days start today, which means it’s time for action.
If you were watching the Inauguration yesterday, you might’ve heard the new President say:
“We’ll work tirelessly to… roll back the specter of a warming planet.”
And if you were like me, you did a little happy dance in front of the TV. It’s not everyday that a politician commits to protect the planet for future generations in a national address.
But that was followed by the sobering reminder:
“For as much as government can do and must do, it is ultimately the faith and determination of the American people upon which this nation relies.”
It’s clear that the new administration is open to taking our country towards a clean energy economy, but now it’s time for us to start making sure they follow through with action.
Now that we’re just days away from delivering the petition to Congress and the new administration, you can help make sure that the petition for wildlife-friendly energy solutions makes a solid thump when it lands on our new leadership’s desk.
If you haven’t already signed the petition, there’s still a few days left to add your name, OR if you’ve already signed the petition, you can reach out to your family, friends and neighbors with this quick ecard.
The time you take to speak up for clean energy solutions today will put us that much closer to restoring our natural world and giving us all safer energy choices, lower family fuel costs and millions of new jobs.
