Leonardo DiCaprio Calls for Clean Energy

Last night, President Barack Obama gave the State of the Union address, and spoke about the future of our environment. And today, celebrities have banded together echoing his sentiment for a future with clean energy.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Edward Norton, Chace Crawford, Jason Bateman and others have just kicked off a brand new campaign entitled "This is Our Moment.” The web-based video campaign from the Natural Resources Defense Council Action Fund urges Congress to pass the first-ever climate and clean energy bill, currently pending in the Senate.

Stars like Felicity Huffman, Justin Long, Emmy Rossum and Forest Whitaker are also a part of launch that enables citizens to become participants by speaking to their representatives in two ways: uploading their own videos in support of a clean energy economy, and sending direct emails to their Senators.

Leo, a longtime champion for the environment and NRDC Trustee, said in a statement, "This is our moment - our moment to fight for a cleaner and more secure future. The time is now for people across the country to stand up and have their voices heard. We all must call on the Senate to act on this historic opportunity."

"Americans want real action to address climate change and move our country toward a clean energy future," added NRDC President Frances Beinecke. "This is one of the most important pieces of legislation of our time - we cannot let our moment pass us by. Our Senators need to hear all of us loud and clear."
