Joseph Romm sees Obama keeping his promise to jumpstart clean energy, economy; and, he warns that we also witnessed that "the conservative movement threw their entire weight behind humanity’s self-destruction."
"Years from now ...this moment may well be remembered as the time that progressives, led by Obama, began the transition to a sustainable economy built around green jobs."

Economic Stimulus Bill Now in Conference

In addition to supporting H.R. 1, <a href="">T. Boone Pickens asks</a> members of his 'army' to send an email to their representatives asking "them to support inclusion in that bill of the House Department of Energy grant program."

The Pickens Plan is about wind power and the Pickens camp sees a recharged, grants program as critically important.  They also recognize that, just as important is a modernized grid that reaches out to renewable energy resources. "Ask your Members of Congress," they tell the Pickens Army, "to support enactment of a strong national renewable electricity standard that meets President Obama's goal of securing 25% renewable electricity by the year 2025."
