Obama says to Repower America
On Tuesday something great happened. Our Chairman Al Gore met with President-elect Obama to talk about solving the climate crisis. And in his remarks Obama said now is the time to Repower America. You have already had a huge impact.
President-elect Obama said:
"...we have the opportunity now to create jobs all across this country, in all 50 states, to repower America, to redesign how we use energy, to think about how we are increasing efficiency, to make our economy stronger, make us more safe, reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and make us competitive for decades to come, even as we're saving the planet."
This is fantastic progress. Thanks to you our agenda is front-of-mind for the new leadership. But much remains to be done. And we need your help. Will you make a contribution today to help Repower America and make sure this momentum continues? It's easy. Just click here.

Which is why we need your help to make sure the Repower America vision for clean energy, a prosperous economy, and a safe climate is heard -- in Washington and across the nation.
