It was recently announced that the national unemployment rate is at 9.7%, meaning almost five million Americans are looking for work. Can part of the solution lay in green jobs? Read our featured petition below. But first, an update:
With your support, we reached the 12,000 signature goal on our petition to save critical habitat for the Florida panther--and it couldn't have come at better time. In the news recently, a deer hunter sitting in a tree in Georgia shot and killed a panther. The big cat had wandered hundreds of miles north from Florida simply because he had no home to call his own. We thank you for working to ensure that this endangered species is given a home to thrive.
Don't let your support end there--help bring about real change today. Take action below!Sincerely,
Support Clean Energy and Climate
The House of Representatives recently passed clean energy legislation, policies that could mean millions of new American jobs as well as greater energy independence. It's up to the Senate to act on this historic bill and we need your help to remind our leaders to do the right thing.
Encourage your Senators to support this crucial legislation.
