Obama: “Don’t Give Up” on Carbon Cap


President Obama delivered a clear message to Senate Democrats yesterday — just because comprehensive clean energy & climate legislation is hard doesn’t mean it’s not worth doing:

“Don’t give up on that,” Obama said in a televised question-and-answer session with Senate Democrats. “I don’t want us to just say the easy way out is for us to just give a bunch of tax credits to clean energy companies.”

Obama praised the effort by Sens. John Kerry (D-Mass.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) to craft a compromise bill that blends emissions limits with new support for nuclear power, low-emissions coal and offshore drilling.

Please take a moment right now to email your Senators and ask them to support strong action to protect future generations of
Americans, America’s wildlife, and our wild places from the worst
effects of global warming.
