Greenpeace Calls for Responsible Energy Leadership

"Any plan that doesn’t spark massive clean energy development is just a recipe for an unstable, insecure energy future and worse global warming."

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Greenpeace activists protested the United States national energy policy in front of the U.S. Capital Wednesday when they erected three mock Exxon oil rigs in the Reflecting Pool with banners reading "Don't RIG Our Energy Future" and "Stop Global Warming: Clean Energy Now!"

The activity marks the international environmental group’s first nonviolent direct action in Washington, D.C. since the tragic events of September 11, 2001.

The Senate was scheduled to begin debating the nation's energy policy late last week - a policy many environmentalists believe is the result of big oil payoffs.
