from Wildlife Promise

06-26-09 polar bear with cub I’m heartened by this evening’s vote by the House of Representatives to pass the American Clean Energy and Security Act. The bill passed with a 219 to 212 bipartisan vote.

This is the most important conservation vote in a generation. Thanks to all who worked to ensure passage of this bill to invest in a clean energy economy, reduce global warming pollution and protect America’s wildlife and natural heritage. Now we take this cause to the Senate with the winds of change at our back.
