URGENT – Stop Dirty Energy Bill

Dear Friend –
 
We urge your group to sign a letter to stop a dangerous energy bill being rammed through Congress: http://bit.ly/StopDirtyEnergy
 
Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is attempting to rush this 891-page bill to a vote the week of July 10 without any public hearings, bypassing all committees, and flouting normal procedures.
 
The Trump-McConnell Dirty Energy Bill would be a disaster:
 
·        Speed approval of exports of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)
·        Give FERC even more authority over decisions about pipelines for natural gas
·        Authorize millions of dollars for research into recovering methane hydrates, a dangerous new source of methane trapped under the ocean floor
·        The “Renewables” section doesn’t even mention solar and wind power
  
Please sign on to this letter by Monday, July 10 at 9:00 am: http://bit.ly/StopDirtyEnergy
 
Please share it widely with other grassroots groups, faith institutions, political clubs, nonprofit organizations, businesses, unions, and other institutions.
 
Please let us know if you’d like to get more involved in stopping this bill, or if you have any questions or need more information.
 
Thank you for your consideration.
