Last Night's State of the Union: Global Warming Still Not a Priority

Last night, President Bush talked about a new energy economy. But when you completely ignore the biggest challenge of all -- global warming -- your plans will never measure up.

Using government subsidies for favored energy programs is thinking small. Instead, America needs a bold plan to limit global warming pollution and unleash the market to create a new energy economy.

The U.S. must pass a market-based cap on global warming pollution as the first meaningful step to reduce our emissions and spur private sector investment in the new energy technologies the president supports.

We are fully engaged at every level to see that 2006 is a year of real action. Our campaign activities include:

- Launching a new public education campaign. In the coming weeks, you will get an inside look at our most ambitious national public messaging campaign to date. The campaign will include television, radio, print and online ads and a new website to help us reach millions with our message.

- Strengthening on-the-ground grassroots organizing. In key states where we hope to win over the support of swing senators, we have built statewide outreach and education campaigns. These efforts have focused on building coalitions with industries and citizen groups most at risk as global warming changes our world.

- Getting the science right. Last year, we hired Bill Chameides, one of the world's foremost experts in atmospheric science, to lead our team of global warming scientists. We will use this expertise to make sure we are promoting the most effective policies.

With your continued support, we are doing all that can be done to make 2006 the year of historic action in the fight to stop global warming. No environmental threat is more urgent.

Thank you for being part of this crucial effort to reduce global warming.

Campaign Director,
