SEIA - Renewable energy as a top campaign issue this year

I'm working with SEIA, the Solar Energy Industries Association, and I wanted to pass along a short audio clip from last week's Earthbeat (on Pacifica Radio) where Mike Bocian (with Greenberg/Quinlan) talks about renewable energy as a top campaign issue this year. This comes after his group released a polling compilation showing that Americans are very concerned about global warming, and recognize renewable energies such as Solar as stable and viable technologies for the future.

Bocian is quoted as saying, "For the first time ever, a type of technology has become a top-tier political issue. The candidates and elected officials who seize this mantle of change will reap the political benefits. Through our political work this cycle, we'll be advising clients to take charge and offer clean energy solutions."

I have also attached a memo by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner, which comes to very similar conclusions. While SEIA did not commission or participate in this study, we hope that you will find its contents as interesting as we did.

We're really hoping candidates running this year take note of this, and put renewable energy front and center on their platforms!

Please let me know if this is of interest to you, or if you would like additional information.
