Take Action: Protect Clean-Energy Jobs!
Clean energy had a breakthrough year in 2013, and that has the fossil fuel billionaires running scared. They see their profits being blown away by reliable, cost-competitive, American-made wind farms and solar arrays -- energy sources that don't choke our skies with smog and soot, and don't dump mercury and selenium into our waters.
Now they're taking aim at tens of thousands of clean-energy jobs as they work with their friends in Congress to erase provisions like the wind energy production tax credit.
Send a message to your senators -- tell them to protect our future by renewing the wind energy production tax credit.
