Green groups to Obama: Keep the pressure on for climate legislation

A wide swath of environmental groups is urging President Barack Obama to keep the pressure on Congress to pass a climate bill.

A letter Thursday to the president from over 50 groups urges Obama to "continue to demonstrate your leadership in support of strong clean energy and climate change legislation this year."

The letter notes that Obama yesterday said he wanted Congress to address the issue in 2010. The groups want Obama's support to continue. "Now, more than ever, we need your help to make that vision a reality," the groups write.
