Yesterday, September 27th, President Obama was in Denver discussing the American Jobs Act. One of the things mentioned was the elimination of tax breaks for oil and gas producers. Although I am very excited that this is part of the bill that we are trying to pass in order to help solve our economic and unemployment issues, we also need to think of other things to fight against fossil fuels, like renewable energy and getting rid of dirty coal. Growing up I was always proud to be born and raised in the great United States of America, but our role as leaders has faded. Sweden currently gets over 35% of their energy from renewable resources. If they can do it, so can we. In the country where the American Dream was born, we are full of endless possibilities. We need action now in order to combat dirty coal and other nonrenewable energies. Let’s move towards a greener future!
