National Energy Action Month

October 5, 2012

October is National Energy Action Month, when Americans are called up to work together, "to achieve greater energy security, a more robust economy, and a healthier environment for our children" -- as President Obama wrote in an official proclamation on Monday.

Those goals are the reason that the President is pursuing an all-of-the-above strategy to help the United States achieve energy independence.

To give you a better sense of what that means, we've put together a video that outlines the progress we've made and President's Obama's plan for the future.
