Americans have always pulled together during tough times to accomplish great missions. We can do it again.
The threat of climate change must be addressed, but tackling this challenge can also be understood to be an exciting and enormous opportunity for creating good jobs for America's economic and improving our national security.
A crash program for sustainable energy independence, such as the Apollo Alliance's 10 point plan endorsed by the NRDC and other major environmental, 22 major labor unions and dozens of business groups -- would create three million good jobs, free the nation from imported oil, and help contribute to the critical fight to stop global warming.
The Alliance is proud to join the march as we remember the words of President John F Kennedy:
"We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too."
