Joint Statement From Greenpeace, FOE, and Public Citizen on the House Energy and Commerce Committee Climate and Energy Bill

WASHINGTON - Joint Statement from Greenpeace, Friends of the
Earth, and Public Citizen on the House Energy and Commerce Committee
Climate and Energy Bill
"We are extremely troubled by the
reports coming out of the Energy and Commerce Committee last night on
additional compromises to the already flawed American Clean Energy
& Security Act. The world needs real leadership from Congress and
the Administration to address global warming - action that will enable
us to transform our economy with clean, renewable energy technology,
new green jobs and show leadership internationally. If reports are
true, the compromises being struck on the bill undermine these goals."

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
