erephotoAdd your name to the growing list of people telling Congress to expedite renewable energy. We can transition to a renewable energy future, but Congress needs to pass the legislation to get us there.

Signing this petition sends an email to U.S. Sen. Mary L. Landrieu (D-LA), chair of the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy & Natural Resources and U.S. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA), ranking member of the U.S. House Energy & Commerce Committee.

This petition unites the voices of Americans who demand our leaders take seriously the energy and climate crisis and immediately work to implement the policies to move our country toward a sustainable future.

I WANT CONGRESS TO PASS A RENEWABLE ENERGY POLICY THAT:

I want Congress to pass a Renewable Energy Policy that:

• Mandates an aggressive RES (renewable electricity standard)

• Sets a limit and tax on greenhouse gas emissions, including carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4)

• Puts an end to subsidies for fossil fuels and nuclear power

• Provides incentives for renewable energy and energy efficiency projects

• Modernizes the electrical grid

• Provides market certainty to accelerate investment in renewable energy

• Invests in research and development for battery storage and renewable energy technologies

• Encourages distributed generation to help localize energy generation

• Defines renewable as non-combustion sources of energy

• Puts Americans back to work by creating green jobs and a sustainable economy

• Makes the U.S. a leader in fighting climate change and global warming

• Puts the health of people and the planet before corporate profits
