Representative David Scott Celebrates Earth Day

Washington, April 21, 2009 -

Congressman David Scott made the following statement in observance of the 39th Annual Earth Day, which will be observed tomorrow, Wednesday, April 22:

“Almost four decades ago, a group of visionary Americans energized the environmental movement by dedicating a day to the ideal that we must preserve God’s creation, our planet, for future generations to come,” stated Rep. Scott. “Today, we are making the tough decisions necessary to move our country forward by introducing legislation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, create green jobs and invest in researching new clean energy technologies.”

“Building a clean energy economy requires the help and participation of every American. Everyone can save money and help grow a clean energy economy by weatherizing their home, purchasing energy efficient appliances, and investing in more fuel efficient vehicles. By working together, on this Earth Day and everyday, we can leave behind a healthier, cleaner planet for our children.”
