In June, the House of Representatives passed legislation to cut global warming pollution, build a clean energy economy and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Now it is up to the Senate to pass a similar bill and more than a dozen Senators have yet to say how they will vote. In this period of deliberation, it is extremely important for all of us citizens to take action.
Headcount and the NRDC Action Fund have teamed up with Phish, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Wilco, The Decemberists, Jack Johnson, and more to offer a free "Best of Bonnaroo" compilation to those who will send an email to their local senators encouraging them to vote yes on this bill. These are really awesome recordings that aren't available anywhere else, and a great perk to motivate us all to make our voices heard.
It is a ridiculously easy process that has the potential to achieve great results. Simply go to this page, where you will be prompted to enter your zip code so they know which senator to address it to. There is a prewritten email you can send, or you can choose to write your own. You do have to enter your name and address at the bottom, to show that you are a real person. Hit send, and you will receive a link to the free download.
