Needed: Energy And Jobs Investment

Jerome Ringo is president of the Apollo Alliance . This is an extract of his testimony May 22 before the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming:

The public is clamoring for action, with environmentalists, working Americans, inner-city communities, technology innovators, investors, security moms, family farmers, and more demanding change now.

...That commitment to the future explains why Local 103 has partnered with Cape Wind on developing an offshore wind project that will create up to 1,000 new jobs and offset almost one million tons of carbon dioxide.  Now it’s time for Congress to meet innovators such as Cape Wind and IBEW Local 103 half-way.
