>>Dear Friend,
>>Please join us in stopping a reckless energy plan from passing the
>>Senate.  Instead of solving the challenges posed by America's demand
>>for energy, this shortsighted plan proposes that we develop some of
>>the last pristine wilderness left in America, the Arctic National
>>Wildlife Refuge.  We can't let this happen.  We're beginning our
>>actions on February 11th, and we won't stop until a real energy bill
>>is passed. Please join us in taking action now by sending your Senator
>>a free fax at:
>>    http://www.saveourenvironment.org/miked
>>This dangerous energy plan has already been passed by the House of
>>Representatives, and was written with the help of oil industry
>>lobbyists. The Senate is our last line of defense.  If we don't act
>>now, our world will be forever changed.
>>There are alternatives. Senate Majority Leader Daschle has introduced
>>an energy bill that would jump start investment in clean electricity,
>>increase fuel efficiency of cars and trucks, and does not open places
>>like the Arctic to harmful drilling.  This bill includes a "renewable
>>portfolio standard," which would require utilities by 2020 to increase
>>by 10 percent the electricity generated by wind, solar, and other
>>forms of renewable power.  In fact, many scientists believe that it is
>>technologically and economically feasible to reach a 20 percent
>>increase by 2020.  And by raising the fuel economy standards for new
>>cars, SUVs, and trucks to 40 mpg, we would save 4 million barrels of
>>oil a day by 2020 - more oil than we import from the Persian Gulf each
>>day and could expect to get from drilling in the Arctic National
>>Wildlife Refuge, combined!
>>We need your help - now -- in convincing the Senate to protect the
>>Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and support a real energy plan.
