Help make your state a clean energy leader! Start 2015 off right by asking your state’s governor to find clean energy solutions!! The Union of Concerned Scientists has an easy and quick form to send a letter here! Takes less than a minute!!

Right now, we have an unprecedented opportunity to reduce dangerous carbon emissions from power plants—the largest source global warming emissions in the United States. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has charged states with developing plans to meet the agency’s newly proposed rules to limit carbon emissions from power plants.

How your state chooses to meet this charge could depend on you.

Your governor needs to hear that residents are paying attention and want scientifically-sound plans that will prioritize clean, renewable energy and energy efficiency and ensure your state is prepared for the consequences of climate change.

Urge your governor to ensure your state is a clean energy leader today!

Check out this awesome interactive state-by-state map of NIH funding and its impact from United for Medical Research. When you click on each state you will get the amount of NIH funding and the number of jobs this funding supports. It also includes a list of the top NIH funded institutions and the leading causes of death by disease! The announcing press release states that the interactive map will be a resource for the public, lawmakers, and media… but I’m a scientist and I think it is super useful!

United For Medical Research, a coalition of leading research institutions, patient and health advocates, and private industry, today launched a user-friendly map spotlighting the state-level impact of federal research funds provided by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). NIH awards support more than 400,000 jobs nationwide, funding the nation’s leading research institutions and spurring investments and research by the biopharmaceutical industry.
