We need clean energy, green jobs now

We need clean energy, green jobs now(By Tom Schreckengast Via Pocono Record)By passing ACES out of committee, Congress has cleared a major hurdle

toward building America's clean energy future that will create jobs, cut

our dependence on oil, and reduce the carbon pollution that causes global

warming.As the ACES bill moves to the full House and the Senate, it is important

that Congress works to strengthen and pass comprehensive clean energy and

climate solutions to unleash investment in clean energy sources — like wind

and solar — increase energy efficiency to save consumers money, boost the

economy, strengthen national security, and limit global warming.We need climate legislation now to create jobs and spur our economic

recovery. There is growing support from businesses, faith groups, labor and

other diverse groups that we need to produce more clean energy and reduce

global warming pollution. Delay is not an option — we need to act now to

create jobs in manufacturing and whole new industries, and protect the

health of people and the planet.ACES is a strong foundation that we can build upon. Over the next weeks we

can convince Congress to provide more funding for renewable energy sources,

increase the emphasis on energy efficiency, and create more clean energy

jobs.The opposition is blocking progress for America. They are just stalling

since they are out of ideas and have no plans besides protecting profits

and lining the pockets of greedy companies. We need to move to a clean

energy future that will make America a global leader for the 21st century,

not stuck with 19th century technologies and dirty fuel.The ACES bill would establish a hard cap on global warming pollution that

would reduce U.S. emissions by 17 percent below 2005 levels by 2020, by 42

percent by 2030, and by 83 percent by 2050.For the very latest in clean energy jobs from around the world please click
