In this crucial point in history, digging, stumbling, reposting or emailing the below could do an incredible amount of good for the entire world. Just saying! :)

Most of us have probably never called our congressional representative's office before. We’ve attended rallies or sent e-mail, but a phone call is different. It’s difficult to know what to say, when to call, and to find the time to do it. But making a call for a timely, critical issue is the best way to make your voice heard.
The next 7 days are critical for the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009. The bill is moving through a mark-up process where it can become a strong bill or can be weakened by Big Oil and Dirty Coal lobbyists. These lobbyists want more oil, more coal, polluter giveaways, and for America to treat global warming as a hoax. They have the money and resources to push their agenda, but we have a voice.
This is where your phone calls count. Congress needs to hear from you: about your concerns to re-grow the economy, take on climate change, and create a clean energy economy that works. You can make that call right now.
Making this call is short and simple: visit our online call center and we’ll connect you toll-free to your representative’s office. We’ll give you talking points and you can give us feedback about your call with our online form. Relax and just speak from the heart.
Thousands of people have already called their representatives this week. Early reports from our callers note that some representatives have an active interest in the bill and some didn’t even know where it stands. The more calls we make, the more political push we can create to keep the bill strong.
Adding a phone call to your list of political achievements is a great first step and you can do it right now.
