DO SOMETHING EVERY DAY TO INFLUENCE PRESIDENT OBAMA’S VETO …
I will call — and ask my friends to call — President Obama every day until he announces that he will VETO the Keystone XL tarsand oil pipeline. And I will send a hand-written letter or post on his website every day. And I will share my stories to ask others to join me and send Barack Obama our love, so he will say ‘YES’ to US and ‘NO’ to Keystone XL pipeline and tarsand oil.
CALL … 202-456-1111
SAY … “I SUPPORT his VETO of the Keystone XL pipeline”
WRITE … President Barack Obama, The White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20500

I pledge to continue working with one of SMUD’s home energy contractors to complete a home energy upgrade aimed to reduce my natural gas/electricity usage by 20%. This upgrade will involve adding wall and floor insulation to an older home which currently has none. The process was initiated via a free home energy audit.
For further info on home energy audits/upgrades & SMUD rebates, see:
