President Obama is urging green-minded voters to work on behalf of his reelection with a video pitch that calls the next few months crucial to continued progress on environmental protection.
His reelection campaign used Earth Day to announce the re-launch of “Environmentalists for Obama,” a mobilization effort that was also part of the 2008 campaign.
The new video message from Obama touts administration policies on green energy development, fuel efficiency, conservation and other matters.
“None of this progress came easy,” Obama says in the video. “And what we do over the next few months will decide whether we have the chance to make even more progress.”
It urges viewers to “take a second” to visit the Environmentalists for Obama website and “ask a friend to do the same.”
