Green Idol

I've just joined the Green Idol campaign and told Prime Minister Manmohan
Singh that he has no time to lose.

If he's serious about fighting climate change – as he should be – then he
MUST have a Renewable Energy Law in place by 2010. That's next year!

I know he's not going to do it just because I asked him to. But if he starts
getting hundreds of thousands of other Indian citizens asking him too,
he’ll have no option.

Do what I’ve done. Save the climate. Be a Green Idol! Tell Dr. Manmohan
Singh now at
