Blog Action Day 2009: Climate Change

Earlier this week, I started a new position with grassroots solutions, a grassroots consulting firm headquartered in Minneapolis. Having worked with and received technical assistance from a number of their staff in a couple of my previous consulting projects, I'm excited to be coming on board with such talented, passionate, and fun people!

In honor of Blog Action Day 2009, I thought I'd just share a bit about one of the projects I'll help to manage, which is the Clean Energy Works (CEW) coalition. Their tagline is "More jobs. Less pollution. Greater security."

Clean Energy Works is a diverse coalition of more than 60 grassroots organizations representing more than 12 million Americans. This unprecedented grassroots coalition includes faith leaders, labor labors, veterans, environmental activists, sportsmen, farmers, business leaders, youth, community leaders, and many other groups, all calling for urgent action on a comprehensive clean energy and climate plan that delivers clean energy jobs, less pollution, and a more secure America.

Comprehensive energy and climate policies will:

• Create and protect millions of good American jobs by spurring investment in the nation's growing clean energy economy

• Improve our national security by enhancing America's energy independence, reducing our dependence on foreign oil, and getting America running on clean energy

• Reduce the carbon pollution that's harming our air and water, and endangering the health of the planet
I look forward to advancing these objectives on behalf of national security, job creation, and environmental health and thank Blog Action Day for their focus on such a critical and relevant issue!
