Tell Congress to Expedite Renewable Energy

Add 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.
