As Energy Citizens are preparing to rally in North Carolina, a new study shows that as many as 87,000 jobs could be wiped out in the state if the House-passed climate bill becomes law. The study also projects that the average North Carolina household would see its purchasing power fall by as much as $840 a year, and the state domestic product would fall by 1.6 percent. The impact on the state's economy could be devastating as tax revenues shrink, taking away much-needed funds for schools, police and fire departments, and hospitals. - See more at: http://energytomorrow.org/blog/author/13/P560#sthash.UHxuF8Q7.dpuf

About 3,500 people streamed into Houston's Verizon Wireless Center today to remind Congress that energy is the backbone of the U.S. economy. Many wore bright yellow T-shirts emblazoned with "I'm an Energy Citizen," and hundreds signed petitions opposing the House-passed climate bill.

This week's episode focuses on the recent tour of oil sands operations in Alberta, Canada that I've been posting about frequently.
