About Clean Energy

Every president since Richard Nixon has called for America’s independence from oil, but Washington gridlock has prevented action again and again. If we want to create a more secure energy future, and protect consumers at the pump, that has to change.

President Obama has put forward a plan to secure America’s energy future by cutting our imports of foreign oil by one-third through producing more oil at home and reducing our dependence on oil by leveraging cleaner, alternative fuels and greater efficiency..

And beyond our efforts to reduce our dependence on oil, we must focus on expanding cleaner sources of electricity, including renewables like wind and solar, as well as clean coal, natural gas, and nuclear power – keeping America on the cutting edge of clean energy technology so that we can build a 21st century clean energy economy and win the future.
