The current economic and energy crises place us at a crossroads. One path leads backward toward the kind of carbon-intensive, high-waste, low-road economic development strategies we have been following for decades. The other leads into a new clean energy future, where acting sustainably requires not only choosing lower-carbon, more environmentally friendly energy and fuel, but also choosing to pursue sustainable economic growth strategies that produce high-quality, family-supporting jobs and long-term prosperity. The Apollo Alliance and its partners believe the choice is clear: the old way did not work, and we must move in a new direction that is better for our workers, better for our communities, and better for our environment.
