Richard Greene, Marshall Herskovitz and Paul Haggis are sounding a warning about this year’s midterms, worried that clean energy will get short shift when voters go to the polls.
Along with a group of celebrities, including Jason Mraz and Maroon 5, they are issuing a list of endorsements for this year’s midterms.
“If everyone who wanted America to become clean energy independent by the end of this decade went to the polls on November 2 and voted for candidates that would make this happen, it would happen.”
They write on Huffington Post, “Crippled and drunken on special interest money like a pathetic beggar with a bottle of whiskey and a tin cup, our Congress has failed to stand up to Big Oil and their lobbyists and make any significant progress to bring Energy Independence to America.
“Accordingly, there is really only one issue in this election … GUTS.”
