Next week Congress will take a break and return to their homes and districts. While they're back the Sierra Club hopes that North Carolinians will urge their representatives to push energy and climate legislation to the forefront of debate. Over the last few months the idea of an energy only bill has been tossed around, in the end not passing comprehensive legislation that includes a price on carbon would be irresponsible. If we want legislation that creates jobs, decreases our dependence on foreign oil, and reduces pollution Congress needs to pass climate legislation too.
Of course if I can't convince you of the importance maybe this will.
If you've decided to act find phone numbers and addresses here.
