Rep. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) just introduced a federal renewable portfolio standard bill. HR 969 would mandate 20 percent renewable energy by 2020. We need this. You can cap and trade all you want, but that won’t necessarily develop a market for renewables. This will. And we will not be effective against global warming without a transition to renewable energy. Full stop.

Our good friends at UCS have made taking action easy, here.
