Energy Bill - Stalled in the U.S. Senate!

For those of you who haven't been following this story, the House passed an ambitious energy bill Thursday of this week. The Senate is now considering a new scaled-back version of the bill that would take out a requirement for electric ulitilites to use renewable energy for 15 percent of their power generation. If any of you read our earlier post, Good CARMA, about power generation from these companies - this is an important step.

Go to the Washington Post today for more info.

Want to take action to get these Senators to hear your view? Go here to the Sierra Club's website to tell them what you think now. It's quick and easy - they show you exactly who to call. I live inside the beltway, and my policy-wonk friends tell me a call has a more powerful effect on making a difference than emails.

Another alternative? Write to energy companies that are opposing the bill, like the Southern Company, that serves Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia. Want to find out the company that provides your energy? Go to and enter your zip code (right margin).
