Reason No. 3 is sponsored by VoteVets.org, which has launched a $2 million ad campaign in support of a clean energy and climate bill. Watch their one-minute ad called “Tough” and forward it to anyone you know who calls themselves a patriot.
The VoteVets ad clarifies a simple truth: Over the next few decades, we’re going to follow one of two paths. We will either waste money and lives fighting for every last drop of recoverable oil on the planet and then, when fossil fuels finally run out, witness economic devastation the likes of which we’ve never imagined. Or we will devote our financial and human resources to a clean energy infrastructure that will help us transition smoothly to a post-carbon economy. Which will it be?
