Sign MoveOn's Renewable Energy Bill Petition

Sign the MoveOn petition today.

Did you know the U.S. right now gets only 2% of our electricity from clean energy sources like solar and wind? We have the technology. We know people want it. We just haven’t had the political will.

“Congress must act now to move our country toward a clean energy economy based on solar and wind power by voting yes on H.R. 969, the Federal Renewable Energy Standards Act.”

Can you sign this petition today?

And while you’re there, might as well sign this one.

An example that is smacking the United...
