Power Shift: Repowering Our Future

NWF   |   March 6, 2009

PowerShift 2009 was an exhilarating success this past week.  12,000 students from across the country expressed commitment to capping carbon emissions and transitioning to a clean energy economy that creates jobs and cuts global warming pollution.

I was humbled and inspired by the belief of these courageous young leaders that we can create a strong economy and healthy environment.  And while they are helping to focus the nation on climate change, their actions also helped Congressional leaders make the change from coal to natural gas at Washington DC’s power plant, which will benefit residents of that neighborhood.
