RenewableEnergyAccess.com has posted a press release from Re-Energize America touting an event they held at the National Press Club in Washington featuring a diverse array of speakers. Among those present were Vice Admiral Dennis McGinn, William Klinefelter, the political director of the United Steelworkers of America, New Mexico rancher Tweeti Blancett, and the Rev. Jim Ball, Ph.D. The group’s purpose demonstrates the growing diversity within the environmental/sustainability community:
Re-energize America is a diverse and growing coalition of concerned individuals and organizations that together reflect the fast-emerging national consensus that America must reduce its oil dependence and be responsible stewards of our nation’s natural heritage. The best way to do that is to harness clean, renewable energy sources and alternative energy technologies here at home, and to vastly improve energy efficiency. Expanding our energy choices will stimulate innovation, create jobs, strengthen our national security and stop global warming.
