Solar, Wind, Bio, Energy News And Commentary By_Green Earl, 30 year Pioneer In Conservation & Solar Energy Army,
Dear Green Earl:
Ok. We have a lot going on and I want to spend a few minutes sharing it all with you.
As you know, today -- July 8 -- is the first anniversary of the introduction of the Pickens Plan. We have been on the road for about 170 days over that period to 38 states, and have talked to tens of thousands of people in meetings ranging from one-on-one's with Senators Obama and McCain to standing-room-only halls for Town Meetings.
I'm calling today "Energy Independence Day." Many of you have planned rallies and events in celebration of Energy Independence Day and you should share those events by entering the Pickens Plan Video Contest.
Let's not make this a one-day deal. Let's make every July 8th Energy Independence Day. That will help our national and state leaders remember that we are importing too much foreign oil and we have the resources right here at home to protect our environment, our economy and our national security.
Next thing. The Senate version of the NAT GAS Act was introduced today by New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez -- he was joined by Utah Senator Orrin Hatch and Senate Majority Leader Reid. This important bill joins its House of Representatives companion (H.R. 1835) that was introduced April 1 and already has 70 bi-partisan co-sponsors.
Just like the House version, the Senate version of the NAT GAS Act will provide incentives for consumers, commercial truckers, and state and local governments to aggressively move from using vehicles burning polluting, imported gasoline and diesel to vehicles running on clean, domestic natural gas.
I need you to contact your two United States Senators today and tell them they need to get on board and co-sponsor the NAT GAS Act. For those House members not already co-sponsors, keep on them as well. You can go to this link to use our online letter. You can also call the main switchboard at the U.S. Capitol at 202-224-3121 and ask for your Member of Congress or Senator and the operator will connect you. It's important that you call your Congress Member and a Senator from your state -- that way they'll know we're serious.
Last thing. Our new ad is up on the Pickens Plan website -- click here to view it. It's every bit as good as our previous ads which have been very powerful and very effective.
Energy Independence Day -- today and every July 8th going forward until we've achieved that goal.
The army is on the march!
