Starting today, for the next three days, dozens of groups--including Repower America, Environment America, NWF, Sierra Club, EDF, WWF-- across a wide range of constituencies are calling the Senate to demand they pass comprehensive clean energy and climate legislation as part of the 72 Hours for Clean American Power national call-in campaign. From their site:

America's dependence on foreign oil hurts our economy, our nation's security and the health of our planet. By investing in a clean energy future now, we can create millions of jobs, reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and tackle climate change -- all at the same time.

We can do it by passing comprehensive clean energy and climate legislation – now.

Americans from all walks of life are joining together to call their senators and demand passage of comprehensive clean energy and climate legislation.

The time is now. We cannot wait any longer. Make the call.

Can you help us out?
