On this 40th Earth Day, many activists are reaching out to their constituents, urging them to make life changes, to reduce energy consumption, rethink paper use, install better light bulbs, donate to climate causes. But mostly they want the American public to snap to attention and call the U.S. Senate. Among those wanting to rattling the cages in D.C. is former Vice President and green evangelist Al Gore. If the Senate “steps up and passes strong legislation, success will be within each,” he told supporters of Repower America in an Earth Day email.
