Do you run a small business or have a green job?

Dear MoveOn member,

Do you own or manage a small business, or have a clean energy job? If so, you have a unique role in passing President Obama's plan for a new energy economy.

You see, Big Oil and Coal are busy trying to convince Congress that America can't afford to invest in energy efficiency and green jobs.

Small-business owners are on the front lines of the economic crisis—and know the status quo isn't working. America desperately needs to reduce energy costs, spur innovation, and generate millions of new green jobs.

So Congress has got to hear from you today. Already, 15,000 small-business leaders have signed our petition in support of clean energy.

Can you add your name? Click the link that applies to you:

I own or manage a small business.

I work in a clean energy job related to energy efficiency or renewable energy.

On Monday, corporate conservatives are launching an intense lobbying blitz on Capitol Hill to defeat the clean energy jobs bill. We can counter them with a petition from small-business leaders in support of President Obama's plan.

Congress needs to hear the truth: We can't afford not to invest in clean energy—making America competitive in the 21st century demands nothing less.

Thank you for all you do.
