Clean energy can help create jobs, protect our national security, stimulate private investment and invigorate manufacturing. In this short video, former senator John Warner (R-Va.) and former governor Jennifer Granholm (D-Mich.) discuss America's need for a national clean energy policy.

Since 2009, Sen. Warner has served as a senior adviser to the Pew Project on National Security, Energy and Climate. He and Pew staff have traveled to more than 20 cities to raise awareness about U.S. dependence on foreign oil, climate change and the impact on national security. The Pew Project highlights the climate-security nexus to stimulate discussion and formulate solutions about the critical interrelated problems of national security, energy independence, the economy and climate change.

Gov. Granholm is a senior adviser to the Pew Clean Energy Program and is engaged in a national campaign–Clean Power, Good Jobs, Energy Independence, sponsored by Pew–to highlight how clean energy policies can help create jobs and enhance America's competitiveness in the global clean energy race. Granholm and Pew meet with government, non-profit and business leaders and visit clean energy manufacturing and implementation sites to showcase effective state policies and the benefits of the clean energy economy.
