Yesterday’s blog highlights

Michael Richards of Treehugger reports on how the Department of Energy will invest over $200M in solar and water power technology over five years.  Richard notes that “it’s a welcome investment since the foundation of any sustainable civilization is clean energy.”

The Wonk Room reminds us “what clean energy reform really means” and how it “will change the status quo, putting America to work building a stronger, fairer green economy.”

In his speech at Siemens Wind Turbine plant in Iowa, President Obama reaffirmed his strong support of climate and energy legislation. The President said:

“I believe that we can come together around this issue and pass comprehensive energy and climate legislation that will ignite new industries, spark new jobs in towns just like Fort Madison, make America more energy independent.  Our security, our economy, and the future of our planet all depend on it.”
