You see, in just a few weeks, from March 14 to March 31, our senators and representatives will be heading home for recess, and they're job during recess--at least in part--is to hang out in their local offices and listen to us.
1Sky, an organization working to put sustainability and renewable energy on the top of the political agenda, has launched a "visit your representative and senator" campaign.
1Sky needs our help letting our elected officials know about the huge economic opportunities that would come with being the world leader in renewable energy. Their agenda is:
- 5 million new jobs in a sustainable economy
- Secure our future by cutting climate emissions by 20% by 2020 and 80% by 2050
- Smarten our energy priorities by not building any more coal plants and investing in renewable energy technologies
You can help personally introduce this agenda to your member of congress or senator. If you have never been to your elected officials' offices, don't worry. 1Sky will send you a packet to ensure your visit is successful.
