Letter to the editor

If you see an article on energy, energy security or any topic that you feel is related to the Green Ribbon message, send a letter to the editor. Below is a sample letter:

Dear Editor,

I am concerned about our country's energy security and global warming problems. Although President Bush and Congress have drafted several plans to secure our energy supply, I feel that they have ignored the most urgent aspects of energy today: clean energy and energy conservation.

There is a new movement called the Green Ribbon Pledge that aims to create a positive, inclusive and united movement towards a safe and sustainable future through raising public awareness of the necessity to conserve energy. By taking the Green Ribbon Pledge, an individual commits to reducing their energy consumption and the green ribbon becomes a symbol of their commitment.

The Green Ribbon Pledge has a positive message designed to get as many people as possible, beyond just environmental groups, to conserve energy. The campaign raises awareness about the need for energy conservation and points to the wide range of detrimental impacts such as global warming, oil exploration and mining of pristine wilderness, caused by our current unsustainable energy practices.

I believe that if our government will not take the steps needed to slow global warming and create a true national security through energy independence, citizens will have to lead the way, and www.greenribbonpledge.org is a great place to start. I urge every concerned citizen to take the pledge, get involved and start securing our future today.
