Polluter Fraud Citizen Tip Line Launches THURSDAY

Hello World Family,
Falcon here with an important announcement and conference call THIS MORNING!!!
Please see the announcement from our Brother at the National Wildlife Federation:

Polluter Fraud Citizen Tip Line Launches THURSDAY

Aims to Uncover Extent of Oil and Coal Lobby Abuses
Callers Can Report Forgeries and Staged Events

What: Lobbyists funded by the coal industry are under
investigation for forging letters to Congress--
going so far as to falsify and steal the letterhead of civil rights,
senior, and other interest groups and send letters on their behalf to
members of Congress. Recent weeks have also seen the American Petroleum
Institute create a new front group in an effort to manufacture
opposition to comprehensive climate and clean energy legislation.

Now the AAUW, National Wildlife Federation, NAACP, and Center for
American Progress Action Fund and Sierra Club
are joining forces to help
average citizens blow the whistle on deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal
tactics being perpetrated by big polluters and their lobbyists to strike
down clean energy innovation. The tip line (866-363-4648) launches on
Thursday morning.

When: Thursday, September 3, 2009, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Dial-In: Call 1-800-944-8766 pin 62856# just before 11 a.m.

10 a.m. (Central) / 9 a.m. (Mountain) /
