It's Time to Stop Talking About Clean Energy and Start Acting

Posted: Updated:

It's time people stop talking about clean energy and climate change and start acting.

With that in mind, the NRDC Action Fund and I have launched a campaign to demand action on climate legislation. Our goal: Spread the word and demand that our leaders in Washington take action to pass the critical climate change legislation currently before the Senate. Joining us in this campaign are some of my Hollywood colleagues like Jason Bateman, Forest Whitaker, Chace Crawford, Felicity Huffman, Justin Long, Edward Norton and Emmy Rossum, as well as Professor Cornel West of Princeton University.

We are hoping you will get your friends to help spread that message. Here is what you can do:

  • Tell your Senators This is Our Moment by clicking this link.
  • Spread the word about this video by posting the link on your own Facebook wall.
  • Update your Facebook status to "Thisisourmoment.org" so friends will see our video.
  • Tweet #ThisIsOurMoment and tell your followers to take action today.
  • Upload your own video calling for clean energy solutions.
  • Post ThisIsOurMoment.org on your personal blogs.
We need to take a stand and tell our Senators that we will not accept anything less than a strong, comprehensive clean energy bill that will cut carbon pollution and create clean energy jobs.

If we make ourselves heard, if we stand up and speak the truth, they cannot ignore us. They will have no choice but to pass this monumental legislation. Please visit www.thisisourmoment.org and tell your Senators that you want a strong clean energy and climate bill passed today.

This is our moment and we can't afford to miss it.
