Posted: Jan 29, 2010 – 10:32 AM EST
NEW YORK, Jan. 29 /CSRwire/ – Clean Energy Week, Washington Feb 1-5, tidal wave of national support
“To build a future of energy security, we must trust in the creative genius of American researchers and entrepreneurs and empower them to pioneer a new generation of clean energy technology”
–President Barack Obama, January 27., 2010
By Martha Shaw
When 100 of the nation’s most powerful organizations, leaders and economists unite in a matter of minutes for rapid implementation of clean technology (aka : jobs), you get that great feeling of a kid, proudly saluting the flag.
Formed by 100 organizations nationwide, the country has united to move clean energy to the forefront of national policy, declaring February 1-5, 2010 as Clean Energy Week. They hope to engage Congress and the Administration to take action on climate solutions, renewable energy, American know-how, and energy efficiency — top priorities for our nation, essential to job creation, a US manufacturing comeback, and economic growth.
National Clean Energy Week support brings all factions together to promote passage of the clean energy and climate policy now pending in Congress. Clean Energy Week consists of press conferences, webcasts, breakfasts, lunches, dinners, receptions, workshops, press conferences, rallies and outreach activities on Capitol Hill and across Washington, DC, including some events in other cities including New York City’s open forum on Feed-in-Tariff. http://www.nyses.org
