Let's Start 2009 with a Clean Slate!

Time for a "Clean Slate"

Carl Pope, Executive Director of Sierra Club discussing the Clean Slate Agenda

DAY SIX UPDATE:Six days into his administration, President Barack Obama requested Environmental Protection Agency Director Lisa Jackson to look into granting California a waiver for its clean car law. This would mean over a dozen states could put better limits on global-warming pollution from cars. This stunning break with the policies of the past will help us make real progress cutting our dependence on oil and building a clean energy economy.

Administrator Jackson has already said she will she will pursue granting California a waiver for their clean car law, "...very aggressively, very soon after confirmation ... I will look at the science, and the rule of law," she said.

Clearly this means we are headed in the right direction for a Clean Slate but the job isn't over after Day One-- it's just beginning. With the Economic Recovery package (that includes clean energy) the first item on President Obama's to-do list, there will still be time to talk to President Obama and his Cabinet about the other major strides we can take by adopting the Clean Slate Agenda as soon as possible.
