Gearing Up For Final Clean Energy Bill Push

Will the U.S. House take a final vote on the Waxman-Markey American Clean Energy and Security (ACES) Act next week? That’s what President Obama is asking for:

The Obama administration is planning to make next week “energy week” to rally support for the bill. Reports Politico, “The White House plans to dispatch Cabinet officials to push the administration’s energy agenda and urge Congress to pass climate legislation currently under siege from skeptical Democrats in the House.”

The admin started its push this week, with the release of a new government report on climate science that warns of dire effects across the country. The report’s authors have been holding briefings on the report on Capitol Hill this week to light a proverbial fire under legislators and their staffs.


If you love wildlife, the single biggest thing you can do to help them is to fight global warming. Our climate is simply changing too fast for many of the species we care about to adapt.

Put the power of your voice (and your vote) behind clean energy & climate legislation. Please take a moment right now to tell your U.S. Representative to pass the ACES Act.
