Attorney General Eric Holder has a huge challenge with few options--none of them without potential for violence if we believe the rhetoric. Nevertheless, we believe his investigation should begin where the evidence for actual unlawful behavior is strongest. Its scope should be limited only by the word itself. This means all leads should be followed up, the most serious first of course.

Renewable Energy: Posted 13 Nov 2008

Dear Senators and Representative:

Please oppose the building of new coal-fired power plants that lack the ability to capture and store their carbon dioxide. Constructing new pulverized coal plants would lock the United States into decades of dangerous carbon emissions that will make it extremely difficult to avoid the worst consequences of global warming.

Funding of carbon capture and storage technology should be limited to 5 to 10 demonstration plants until the technology is proven to be safe, reliable, and cost-effective.

Analysis by the Union of Concerned Scientists has found that the country can meet its near-term energy needs and curb emissions through using readily available renewable-energy and energy-efficiency technologies. I urge you to support more aggressive deployment of energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies.
