Business and Utility CEOs Call for Action on Energy and Climate

In the weeks leading up to last Friday’s crucial House
floor vote, scientists and conservationists were far from alone in pushing for
comprehensive new energy legislation.

In an open letter
to President Obama and members of congress, business leaders from a variety of
sectors urged the passage of new measures to cut carbon emissions and institute
an economy-stimulating cap-and-trade program.

The letter, which ran as a print ad in major Washington, DC
publications, endorsed the American Clean Energy and Security Act as a way to “
drive
investment into cost-saving, energy-saving technologies” and “create the next
wave of jobs in the new energy economy.”

Companies
included in the coalition include Nike, Duke Energy, HP, Austin Energy, and
National Grid.
