Building a New Foundation for Energy and the Environment (+Video)

April 15th, 2010 by  


In the last 15 months, President Obama and his Administration have made significant progress in changing the way America thinks about energy and the environment, making the vision of a 21st century clean energy economy a reality.  From historic investments in clean energy infrastructure and technology; improved efficiency for buildings, appliances and automobiles; more diverse energy production from domestic and renewable sources; and reduced emissions that contribute to climate change – the President’s comprehensive strategy has put Americans back in control of their energy future, created new jobs and laid the foundation for long-term economic security, and led by example in exercising good stewardship of our environment.
To continue the progress, we need your help.  President Obama believes, “…that change won’t come from Washington alone. It will come from Americans across the country who take steps in their own homes and their own communities to make that change happen.” So today [April 13, 2010], in honor of the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day, President Obama is challenging Americans to take action to change our nation’s energy and environmental future.
