Meet Jerry and Ken

I wanted to share with you the story of Jerry Hammerschmidt and Ken Runge. They work at Hodge Foundry in Greenville, PA, building components for wind turbines. Wind power is critical to reducing America's dependence on dirty fossil fuels -- but the jobs of thousands of people like Jerry and Ken are at risk unless Congress takes action this week to renew clean energy incentives.

Please click here to support Jerry, Ken and thousands of others who work in the clean energy economy.

Jerry and Ken know jobs like theirs are providing clean, affordable energy, but these jobs are also important for growing our economy. In fact, the number of employees working on wind power equipment at Hodge Foundry has doubled in the last five years. New job growth that helps the climate? America needs jobs like this! If Congress fails to act, more than 100,000 of these jobs could be at risk in 2009.

Congress has the opportunity to support these important jobs and we need them to make the right decision. Please sign our petition urging Congress to renew tax incentives for clean energy.

We'll deliver the petition to Congress and demonstrate the overwhelming support for clean energy jobs. More than 50,000 have signed so far. Add your voice now. Jobs like Jerry's and Ken's could depend on it.

Sincerely,

Cathy Zoi

CEO

P.S. Be sure to check out Earth: The Sequel, a great new book that demonstrates that "we can solve it." Through dozens of interviews with business professionals and scientists, author Fred Krupp explains how to turn our planet's greatest threat into our greatest economic opportunity.
