E-mail the 2008 candidates

Environmental Action is beginnging lobbying efforts early with their latest e-mail campaign to potential 2008 presidential candidates.

Today, we are launching an effort to get all of the potential 2008 presidential candidates to join us in signing the Declaration of Energy Independence. This way the public will know which candidates are serious and which ones are just offering up lip service.

The Declaration of Energy Independence calls for immediate steps to reduce our dependence on oil by 50 percent by 2030 and to end our dependence by 2050.

Your email will be sent to Gen. Wesley Clark, John Edwards, Mark Warner, Gov. Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Gov. Bill Richardson, Gov. Tom Vilsack, Gov. George Pataki, Sen. Joe Biden, Sen. Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bill Frist, Sen. John McCain, Sen. John Kerry, Sen. Russ Feingold, and Sen. Evan Bayh.

While I'm not sure whether or not this will get candidates beyond lip service to the issue, it'll definitely get it on their radar as an issue to deal with on the campaign trail. Send your e-mail today.
