[GreenYes] Action Alert: Support Wind, Not Waste!


Congress is considering a bill that would extend tax credits to incinerators, landfills and coal gasification plants.  

In addition to supporting real renewable energy sources like wind and solar power, the Production Tax Credit (PTC) put forward in H.R. 6049 would extend subsidies to harmful energy sources.  The Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) has been sending out there own action alerts trying to make sure that these dirty energy sources receive subsidies.

This would cause even more pollution and global warming.  Incinerators, landfills and coal plants are relics of an unsustainable past that have no place in our green future.  We need a PTC that is good for our communities, economy and climate.

TAKE ACTION: Tell your representatives to end subsidies to technologies that trash the climate and urge them to support conservation, efficiency, wind, solar and zero waste instead.  Click the following link to take action: http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/1843/t/4860/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=12251

Best,
