We Demand a Green New Deal Focused on 100% Clean Energy

We have launched a MoveOn petition demanding that the Green New Deal being discussed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez focuses on achieving 100% non-emitting clean energy.

There are problems with demanding 100% renewables, because this ignores some of our best and most powerful sources of clean energy, namely large hydro and nuclear power. Additionally, renewables sound great but the term actually includes a majority of sources of carbon-emitting energy techologies, such as biowaste (burning garbage), biomass (burning trees and other green waste) and biofuels (growing plants that can be converted into hydrocarbon liquid fuels), which all continue to add carbon to the atmosphere. Please join our call for a Green New Deal focused on achieving zero emissions through the use of 100% non-emitting clean energy technologies.

Update: Great news on the Green New Deal!

Freshman Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, from New York’s 14th district, has called for a Green New Deal and she has released a proposal for a rule change to create a brand new Select Committee on a Green New Deal, which committee would then be empowered to draft a plan that would transform our economy and society at the scale needed to stop the climate crisis. Importantly, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez has said that she is keeping “an open mind about nuclear’s role in effort to clean energy.”

“I don’t take a strong anti- or pro-position on it,” the New York Democrat said about nuclear energy in an interview late last week. Her Green New Deal resolution, which calls for “clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy” to meet 100 percent of U.S. power needs in the next 10 years, “leaves the door open on nuclear so that we can have that conversation,” she said.”

Our MoveOn petition urges Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and all of the signatories to be open to including nuclear energy, since the experts have agreed that it will be impossible to achieve 100 % clean energy without it. We need to encourage Ocasio-Cortez to focus on what the data and the scientists have told us, rather than on the political popularity of one technology over another. If you agree, please sign our petition. If you are affiliated with another organization, please consider joining forcing as a co-sponsor of the petition. You can contact us here to have your organization’s name added as a sponsor.

“Every gallon of gasoline burned makes 20 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2). There is so much CO2 mixed into the Earth’s oceans that they are now turning acidic with carbonic acid. Acid dissolves alkaline/calcium. Shell fish and coral are made of calcium. We need a carbon tax on all fossil fuels AND everything made from and fueled by fossil fuels YESTERDAY. The tax revenue is to be used to PLANT FORESTS OF TREES, i.e., plant trees on barges, plant trees on marginal farm land, plant trees in riparian buffers along waterways, etc. Trees EAT CO2 and: (1.) Produce oxygen (O2). (2.) Cool the air. (3.) Clean the air. (4.) Hold water in the ground and prevent desertification. (5.) Prevent or reduce flooding. (6.) Provide habitat for wildlife. (Two-thirds of all wildlife is now gone from Earth due to forest destruction by humans AND because humans EAT everything they can get their hands on.) Please act ASAP to put people to work planting trees AND found the International Institute of Tree Science, Pathology and Genetics. Due to global climate change many species of trees are developing deadly diseases just when more trees are needed most. Thank you for your kind and considerate attention to the above matters of no small importance in saving the life of every living thing on Earth, not just humans.”

“The intermittency of wind and solar is currently met with natural gas. The growth in wind/solar increasingly forces parallel growth in natural gas. The goal is zero emissions. 100% clean energy demands a nuclear component large enough to reverse and eliminate fossil fuels. Nuclear provides base load green energy. Wind and solar provide green energy only when subsidy and other green energies are available to back them up.”

“It’s ridiculous to be driving an electric vehicle powered by burning coal and natural gas. New, advanced, molten salt reactors provide the high density, CO2 free, and low waste power that we need along with wind and solar for a cleaner and more sustainable future!”

“Clean energy includes nuclear power. It has the lowest carbon footprint, and lowest “deathprint”, per terawatt-hour produced, of any energy production system in history. In fact, more people die installing wind and solar each year than have ever died in the entire history of US nuclear power. You actually have a better chance of being shot by your own dog (google it) than you have of being injured or killed by US nuclear power, or spent fuel. These are all easily verified facts. Excluding nuclear power from our options will doom our efforts to tackle global warming. Go nuclear, or go extinct. Simple as that.”

Daniel Wodecki from Roseville, MI. Dec 13, 2018

“Consider Nuclear power, clean energy and low foot print if at all its important to move from any high emitting source and this helps us immensely since it generates lots of energy.”

Brenda Wiesner from RICHLAND, WA. Dec 13, 2018

“Clean not renewable. Clean is what matters. Nuclear power must be just off the mix. It’s our most useful option.”

Joseph Thiebes from Bozeman, MT. Dec 13, 2018

“If our goal is to stop climate change in its tracks, as it should be, then we must put all our effort into clean energy including nuclear, solar, wind, and geothermal power.”

“See: http://environmentalprogress.org/ for the best way to clean up the environment.”
Eric Schmitz from Bloomington, IN. Dec 13, 2018

“I am please to see that this petition calls for “ALL types of clean energy… rather than focusing on a subset of options.” It is vital that this remain the focus. It is equally vital that clean, zero-emission nuclear power be included and welcomed as an important option. This may not be comfortable for some. We need to get beyond that. There is no time remaining. The alternative is a climate catastrophe of our own doing, caused both by the things we have done, as well as the things we may have left undone.”
Barbara McClusky from Rocky River, OH. Dec 13, 2018

“We are running out of time to help the environment. Please do all you can to help save our planet for our children and grandchildren.”

Greg Barton from Richardson, TX. Dec 13, 2018

“It is imperative that we have Climate Action now. This must be based on solid science and not ideology. Nuclear is the safest effective, and ecologically sound way to go. Saving our nuclear fleet from closure must become a national priority.”

Rod Adams. Dec 13, 2018

“Nuclear energy has features that will make achievement of the stated goals of the Green New Deal more likely. First and foremost, nuclear energy is emission-free, abundant and reliable with the potential for major cost reductions associated with continued improvement and deployment on an increasing scale. It also has a proven track record of producing career level jobs paying wages that can enable a family to both survive and thrive. Nuclear plants have anchored community development programs, contributing to building a strong tax base for public schools, parks and recreational facilities while also providing a base of skilled volunteers for support and enrichment programs. Employees have also developed a reputation as reliable contributors to fundraising drives; they are often stalwart neighbors who raise their families with strong service minded attitudes. Nuclear energy can compete and win in competition with fossil fuels. It is truly sustainable in that each generation of nuclear can be fully powered and funded by a previous generation.”

Leon springer from Oakland, CA. Dec 12, 2018

“Nuclear Power, especially the new reactors, are the safest and most energy efficient way to a clean future using this non C°2 emitting technology!”

Ambrose from Chambers, AZ. Dec 12, 2018

“Go nuclear or go extinct.”

Michael Pelizzari from Milpitas, CA. Dec 12, 2018

“Because renewables are intermittent, they rely on fossil fuels for backup. The only zero-carbon alternative that can be scaled up to provide all the energy we’d ever need is nuclear. Therefore a healthy dose of nuclear must be included for the Green New Deal to achieve 100% clean energy.”

Stephanie Paddock from Oceanside, CA. Dec 12, 2018

“Mike Levin, get this done.”

Valerie Gardner from Atherton, CA. Dec 12, 2018

“I am convinced that when those offering clean energy solutions stop trying to compete and undermine each other and, instead, start working together, that is when we will win the battle to reduce emissions. This petition is a step in the right direction.”

Karl Pauls from Seattle, WA. Dec 12, 2018
