Christian Coalition Pushes for Energy Legislation

The Christian Coalition has joined the National Wildlife Federation to push for comprehensive climate and energy legislation.
The religious grassroots organization teamed with NWF to release an advertisement calling for action by the U.S. Senate to jump-start America's clean energy economy and reduce foreign oil dependence. 
"Defending the status quo is no longer an option. We need swift action to ensure America is the world leader in clean energy technology," the ad reads. "Senators should work together to move forward with a clean energy plan for America."
News of the partnership comes amid a broader shift in clean energy advocacy. More nontraditional groups are speaking out in support of a clean energy bill in recent months, including hunters, anglers, and Iraq and Afghanistan war veteran.
