Hey all,
Sorry to send out a massive email but I feel this is really important.
I'm helping out on a campaign to get a Renewable Energy initiative on
the Missouri ballot in November. We need 150,000 signatures in the next
45 days, so we NEED your help. Even if you can only contribute money or
sign the petition yourself, we'll gladly accept whatever you can give.

If the initiative passes (assuming we get enough signatures to get it on
the ballot), it would require Missouri utilities to get 15% of their
energy from renewables (wind, solar, biomass, micro hydroelectric) by
2020. Missouri could become the third state to pass such a ballot
measure, and about 20 states have passed similar laws through their
legislatures. This could be a huge boost to green collar jobs in
Missouri, as well as finally mitigating pollution from coal power plants
and fighting global warming.

Here's the link for more info:
