"Enviro Group Plans Senate Call-In on Climate Bill"

"An environmental group today announced plans to flood Senate offices with calls urging action on climate legislation.

1Sky asked supporters to sign up for the Jan. 12 effort.

'Our path forward in 2010 is very clear -- we must show the U.S. Senate that public support exists to pass climate legislation for green jobs, the climate, and our future,' 1Sky said on its Web site page regarding the call-in. 'Senate action is critical to ensuring that the global community can move forward. We will send a real message to the U.S. Senate on the eve of the 2010 campaign season.'

1Sky describes itself as a collaboration of 'environmental groups, state and local organizations, business, religious, health, social justice and military leaders, scientists, economists, elected officials, donors, celebrities and citizens nationwide.'"
